For Better Video, Soften it Up!

For Better Lighting, Soften Things Up. A popular inexpensive light for on-camera or light stand use is the Neweer 160. It is a relatively small LCD that comes with a couple of color slides-ins to soften or change color temperature. I have a couple.

But even with variable strength control, it causes glares if I try to use it for a tutorial or quick video.

Neweer SoftBox

The answer is the Neweer Softbox for the 160, available on Amazon. It fits over the light, diffuses and softens it, and should have a definite impact. I get mine Wednesday… I’ll try it and let you know.
