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 360Â°, 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 bagâ€”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.
