Easy to set up and straighforward in use, it certainly does what it’s designed to do – and for those occasions when you might not actually be creating any content, you could use it for reading or for casting yourself in a better light in these times of regular videoconferencing.

Lighting manufacturer Rotolight has been diversifying  its product range to appeal to camera phone-centric content creators. Whether you are a vlogger, filmmaker or photographer, chances are you struggled to get decent light levels when you broadcast yourself on YouTube or joined video conferences with friends and family. Even if you were able to repurpose some of your core camera kit, perhaps it all felt a tad over-elaborate, like using the proverbial sledgehammer to crack a nut. 

That has all changed now, with the very reasonably priced Ultimate Vlogging Kit. You get an LED light and all the accessories you need to illuminate your video selfies; it’s battery-powered and like your camera phone, simplicity itself to use. What’s
more, you’ll get some change from £100 or $100.
