Using An Orbis For Video Light

Orbis Ring Flash LED DIY mount.If you love that light quality that ring flash gives, you may own an Orbis or a DIY ring flash kit.

If you wanted to get the same effect for video you’d usually have to build one out of CFL bulbs or LEDs. It makes sense since the socket on most strobe oriented ring flashes fits a strobe (DUH!).

But….

But if you just need it for  as light fill and not as a main video light, there is a way you can use those modifiers for video.

Aaron Garcia shoved two bright LED flash lights into the bottom of an Orbis and since light is light, strobe or continuous it got that nice halo effect out of it.

I think that this can work great for small distances, and it is definitely a great use for a ring flash.
