The Rosco LitePad Loop is a new LED ring light that provides constant, soft, diffused on-axis lighting to diminish shadows, blemishes and wrinkles. Manufactured using a lightweight (2.4 pounds), shatter resistant plastic, the Rosco LitePad Loop is just over 9 inches in diameter with a 4.4 inch centre hole. The LitePad inside the Loop has LEDs on both the inside and outside perimeters of the “O” shape, allowing for maximum brightness. The mounting assembly threads onto the bottom of the camera using ¼-20 bolt and has a 15mm rod support system that allows the Loop to travel backwards and forwards, as well as vertically, in order to position the lens in the centre of the ring light.  The Loop attaches to the mounting assembly using high-powered magnets located on the back. Rosco’s LitePad Loop is distributed by OmegaBrandess and is available at most photo & video supply stores priced at around $700.

LITEPAD LOOP OFFERS SOFT, DIFFUSED LIGHTING IN A RING LIGHT THAT FITS ANY CAMERA SYSTEM

LitePad Loop, Rosco’s new LED ring light, provides constant, soft, diffused lighting desired by photographers that need on-axis lighting to diminish shadows, blemishes and wrinkles.  The light engine within the Loop is Rosco LitePad, which is well known for its flattering, indirect light output – making it the ideal lighting choice for close-up and macro photography.

The ingenious, two-part design of the LitePad Loop allows for quick and easy attachment to virtually any camera system.

The LitePad Loop is manufactured using a light-weight (2.4 pounds), shatter resistant plastic, and is just over 9 inches in diameter with a 4.4 inch center hole. The LitePad inside the Loop has LEDs on both the inside and outside perimeters of the “O” shape, allowing for maximum brightness and can be dimmed using the LitePad Single Fader Dimmer (sold separately).

The most innovative aspect of the LitePad Loop is how it attaches to the camera. The Mounting Assembly threads onto the bottom of the camera using ¼-20 bolt and has a 15mm rod support system that allows the Loop to travel backwards and forwards, as well as vertically, in order to position the lens in the center of the ring light.  The Loop attaches to the Mounting Assembly using high-powered magnets located on the back, which allows the user to quickly attach and detach the Loop from the Mounting Assembly.

Rosco’s LitePad Loop is distributed by OmegaBrandess and is available at most photo & video supply stores.

Not bad actually, 2000 lux at 6 feet. (much better then Litepanels Ringlite that puts out only 1100 lux at 5ft).

bb. I have the pro-kit and it's well worth the money.
Build quality is above the rest. I also have the masks which adds another dimension with the eye reflection.
The light is soft and even.
I'm very happy with my purchase. A $70 price tag would assume it a cheap product in many ways. It is a well made and thought kit. I'm sure there's other products out there that are much cheaper but they won't do what this does.

This looks an excellent tool for producing 'blemish free' portraits. However I must agree with both bb and LV, $700 is a bit excessive but $70 is waay too cheap. This is a premium product with a premium price tag. Maybe it should be $250... I wouldnt pay $700.
