Is This Smartphone Vlogging Kit the Ultimate Setup?

Rotolight launches new kits for creators and web conferencing. 

If you happen to be a vlogger Rotolight might have the perfect kit for you. The Ultimate Vlogging Kit combines nearly everything content creators need for a low-cost, lightweight solution. 

Priced at a modest $89, the Ultimate Vlogging Kit comes with Rotolight's popular RL48 ring light, a mini desktop tripod, and a universal mount that allows you to quickly attach different smartphones. The RL48 features 48 grade-A LED bulbs to deliver an 80W equivalent light source with a 110° beam angle. The color temperature is fixed at 5600K daylight, but by using filters, you can adjust the temperature to 3200K, 4100K, or 6300K, add color, or even diffusion. The latter is a must, especially when shooting up close. The fixture is powered by 3 AA batteries for up to 4 continuous hours. 

To improve your audio, consider adding the Shure Mv88, RØDE VideoMicro Compact, or RØDE Video Mic ME to complete the setup. 

Additionally, Rotolight has repackaged its Neo 2 light into a Video Conferencing Kit for those working from home. The robust fixture has an adjustable color temperature from 3150K-6300K and boasts 2000 lux at 3 feet which should be plenty of light while at a desk. The light has flicker-free operation and runs off 6 AA batteries. The Video Conferencing Kit essentially costs the same as the NEO 2 fixture at $299, but Rotolight is adding in a tabletop stand to the mix.

Nope, just buy a mirrorless camera with a tilt-flippy screen
