Quantum’s Omicron Flash/Video Ring Light utilizes 80 LED lamps – with a new twist. Omicron is the first “Chromatically Correct” LED light for photo, video and HDSLR video. White-only LED sources leave spectral gaps compared to traditional and natural light sources. Quantum has critically filled in those gaps with compensating colored LEDs to provide the most natural light spectrum. Furthermore, thanks to the ring design, the colored shadows of other compensated LED light sources are eliminated.

About a year and a half ago I found myself on the road from Yen Minh to Lung Phin, Vietnam, but I wasn’t going anywhere: the road was blocked by a cement truck that had lost traction on a switchback section and crushed the side of the road, blocking traffic in both directions. Along with other motorists, I worked for over two hours trying to get the truck righted, and during those hours there were a few times that I remember asking myself, what am I doing here?
