Ring Light

I was interested in learning about popular ring lights and had some questions.

What is the best ring light for videos? and
What kind of ring light do Youtubers use? and finally
Does a ring light make a difference?

The answers are not surprisingly subjective. One popular light ring is the model below where I go into detail. The Neewer light is a good all around use ring. It has a stand and a large 18″ diameter ring, and the light is adjustable to suit your needs. I also like you can adjust the color temperature for various settings.
Proper lighting of videos or still shots is important. An affordable LED ring light will make your videos more professional.

Some reviews express they like the following:

What I need most was nothing more than a perfect light that can give me a bonus. Kind of SMD type led lights. The dimming setting is very convenient and can be supplemented according to the different light in my room. I love this bracket, it is impeccable.
 It’s very easy to assemble and it’s very sturdy. I love that the ring is white and the stand is silver. I like that the light can be adjusted to your liking- to dim to very bright light. Overall, it’s a very good lighting.
