Lume Cube has just launched its first ring light – one that's completely wireless, enabling you to create content anywhere your photography and videography may take you. 

The Lume Cube Ring Light is an LED affair with built-in diffusion. At 18 inches it compares favorably to the best ring lights on the market, and offers a good size for multiple purposes from vlogs and videography to photography and portraiture.

While the ring light comes with a regular adapter, so you can run it on mains power when in the studio or near an outlet, it also comes bundled with a pair of versatile  NP-F750 lithium-ion batteries. These keep the light running at full power for up to 70 minutes – ideal for shooting on location, run-and-gun filmmaking or traveling. 

The light offers bi-color illumination with and a readout to tell you how hot or cool your lighting is. Brightness can be dialed up or down by 100 percentage points and color temperature can be adjusted from 3200-5600K, enabling you to balance the temperature whether you're working with ambient light, bright outdoor sunlight or artificial illumination. It also boasts flicker-free operation and up to 97 CRI. 

The Lume Cube Ring Light is large enough to accommodate DSLRs, mirrorless cameras and action cameras as well as camera phones, and includes a mount for devices up to 10lbs / 4.5kg. A shoe mount on top of the light enables you to add one of the best microphones for vlogging and filmmaking (up to 2lbs / 907g) to your setup. 

With a lightweight design and padded carry case the light is easily transported, and it comes with an adjustable 6.5-foot stand – and the ring light itself can also be tilted forwards or backwards once mounted, enabling you to fine-tune the angle of incidence. 

The Lume Cube Ring Light is available for $179.99 / AU$236 (approximately £129) directly from the manufacturer.
