High Power Ring Light v2

Published 2021/11/24

The idea

My first ring light works fine but it has some drawbacks that this version set out to correct. It's direct light output in the area of interest is about 25x higher which means huge time savings with each turntable pass. It consumes about 45 Watts of power but it's also synced to the turntable and camera to only turn on fully very briefly, just long enough for the camera to snap a picture. That means that it's not getting hot and it's not as massive of an eye strain (yes, it's still horrifyingly bright, even with polarisation).
The design is completely driven by the idea of it being able to focus on a spot in front of it. The leafs can tilt and thus focus the light on just the area that it's needed on - which is why it's light output is so huge (well... that and the 1672 LEDs of course).
