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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), mirrorless cameras (opens in new tab) and action cameras (opens in new tab) as well as camera phones (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab) (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 (opens in new tab) / AU$236 (approximately £129) directly from the manufacturer.
