The quirky San Francisco-based photo accessory company Photojojo has released a new lighting essential for the photographer on a budget called the  Oh! Wow. Ring Light. Working as a ring flash and as a constant light source, this 60-LED bulb gizmo packs a punch in three different brightness settings.

It has a beam angle of 60 degrees, and it’s color temperature range is 32,000 to 55,000K. The ring light measures a little over 4.5 inches tall and wide and slightly under an inch thick. The power supply controller comes in at approximately 3.7 inches tall, 2.7 inches wide and around 1.5 inches thick.

Most ideal of portraits, this ring light can also be used for macro shots. The ring light’s constant mode can be used for shooting videos.

The Oh! Wow. Ring Light is going for $99 (plus Photojojo offers free shipping on all orders over $50 within the U.S.), and it’s compatible for all Nikon and Canon users, though Canonites will have to wait until April 3 to order this puppy.
