If you’re spending your time at home tapping into your creative side, taking professional photos or making videos is a fun hobby you can do alone, and you don’t need to break the bank for expensive professional equipment. This RGB right light with a tripod stand and selfie holder lets you create professional-quality photos and videos using just your smartphone.

How It Works

This RGB light ring comes in six flash colors, red, yellow, green, sky blue, dark blue, and purple, that enable you to set the tone and warmth of any selfie or photo. The two light and mobile phone holders can be rotated 360 degrees to remove unflattering shadows and target your subject at any angle. The USB port allows you to easily charge the ring on standard devices. It’s the perfect way to brighten up makeup tutorials, live streaming, selfies, online teaching courses, or Zoom calls.


You won’t have to struggle or fiddle with the flash with this light ring. The weighted tripod is stable on any flat surface so you won’t need to worry about your phone tipping over. There’s also an easy to use remote to control flash when you take a photo.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers love this selfie light ring and tripod giving it an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Some reviewers said it was the perfect solution to filming tutorials or work videos at home when their home office setup had poor lighting. Customers also liked that it was easy to set up and that the tripod stand could be adjusted to a very tall or short height.

My childhood home had a pedestal sink. In the wall tile, there were two tiny alcoves, one for a drinking glass and the other for hand soap. There was also a wonderful ceramic toothbrush holder with four holes that protruded from the wall. I don’t recall electric hair dryers, curling irons, or any other modern appliance back then, although a few people might have had them in the 1950s.
