Smith-Victor has announced the Saturn Pro, a 48″ (1.2-metre) ring light ‘unlike any other’.
The oversized bi-colour LED lamp is designed as a shoot-through light source for photographing group portraits, architectural lighting or evenly illuminating chromakey backdrops, among other applications.
It is supported by two light stands (included) and has a controller with sliders for dimming and colour temperature adjustment. Power is via an AC adapter, drawing 150 watts. The ring can tilt a full 360°, so you can mount it overhead (like the conference room of a clandestine organisation).
Naturally you aren’t supposed to fit this giant ring into a camera bag—it breaks down into four sections for storage and transport, by way of an padded case (which is included).
It’s not even all that expensive, all things considered. You can pre-order it now for $479.99 from B&H.
