A simple flashlight will not cut it: the light from a ring light will dim and fall off quickly after a couple of seconds. Some are better than others. For a video camera, you may need to add an accessory such as an LED nightlight, but that has its own disadvantages too. Another option is to connect a small, rechargeable battery so that you can switch the lights off without the risk of the light going out while you are in the dark.
How do you keep the rings in the right position?
You can arrange the rings as shown in the below photo, but they need to be spaced from each other and from each wall. A video camera, especially when attached to your computer monitor, needs to be at a very moderate height because its lens will be touching your face (this can get really uncomfortable). It can be tricky to reach the lighting from the wall with the rings at the proper distances. You will need good-quality scissors and a very fine-pointed piece of wood or plastic.
Video cameras are easy to store for a short time if they stay on your desk. However, if you want to move an entire office, you’ll need to take a whole office out and set the camera on a fixed location.
Where do the power supplies go?
Power supplies come in all shapes and sizes. We’ve tried the best ones that fit the needs and budget. Our recommendation is to use high-quality AC power supplies that have power cords that are longer and thicker than those found in some other computers. AC outlets must be in good places, too. Use a good, high-quality power strip to distribute the current, and you can keep the equipment in better places if you have a better power outlet.
Power cords must always be connected to the correct power supply. If you use too high a voltage, the AC current will not flow back to the AC power circuit. This will cause a short, which may short a video camera out of power. It is also a good idea that AC power cables are at least 6 feet (1.8 m) apart.
Is the video monitor plugged into the power source?
If the computer has a desktop monitor with VGA video, a monitor with a CRT (Computer Projection Type) screen is also acceptable. This is because the CRT screen has no backlight, and it is easy to reach with one hand.
