About this deal

To be clear, this doesn't excuse not having buttons, but it's a start. Hope this helps both of you with this problem I had! The Key Light panel has 4 mounting screw holes - one on each edge. You can choose the one that best meets your needs. Key Light can be paired to a 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi network using a macOS, Windows, Android or iOS device that features a Wi-Fi connection.

Brightness: There's no hard-and-fast answer for how bright your light should be, since the total illumination of your space is determined by other light fixtures, natural light, and the distance the subject is from the source. That's why we recommend key lights with an adjustable brightness, so you don't have to keep shifting the light's distance to find the sweet spot. We typically choose options with a maximum brightness of at least 1,000 Lumens, which should be sufficient to illuminate an entire desk space. While it demands a high price due to its wireless controls and excellent diffuse lighting, the Key Light Air would make the life of a regular streamer significantly easier. The ease with which you can change the brightness and color temperature mean that you can adjust your lighting to your surroundings instantly. While you can link several lights to the same controls, what's missing is the ability to save profiles within the Mac, PC and smartphone apps, which might be useful for dealing with different lighting conditions - not all of use have a dedicated room that's not affected by sunlight or stream from an identical setup or distance each time.These steps can be used on a desktop PC even if it used a hardwired connection as along as a built-in or add-in Wi-Fi card is connected. For those with a more static setup, the Key Light Mini has less to offer compared to other options. Don’t get me wrong, it’s more than up to the job but it loses its price advantage compared to traditional the best ring lights or even Elgato’s own Key Light Air once you factor in a stand. Stands, mounts, and tripods: Lighting placement is super important, so we recommend key lights with stands that allow for adjustments to the tilt, height, and rotation of the light. Depending on how you intend to use your key light, however, compact clip mounts or desk stands may be preferable over tripods. The advantage of tripods, however, is that they're often tall enough to be placed on the floor, and they can collapse down for travel.

These solutions may or may not work for you, but I thought its worth putting it on the inter webs to help even one frustrated person out there. The most obvious alternative is the excellent Lume Cube Panel GO, which is brighter at 1,000 lumens (versus 800 of the Elgato Key Light Mini) but with less color range (3200 to 5600K vs. 2900-7000K). The Lume Cube Panel GO battery is just 2,470 mAh versus the larger 4,000 mAh in the Elgato Key Light Mini, although battery life is 90 minutes at 100%, versus 120 minutes for the (dimmer) Elgato Key Light Mini. I am using MacOS Big Sur on the latest build -- if you're a PC user, I'm not sure how this ports to Windows The result is lights that are both excellent at night while still being soft. The Key Light and Key Light Air are more than bright enough to stream and record YouTube videos with. I tried the whole reset thing again tonight, and the same thing happened. I would use Airport Utility on my Mac to try to set it up. The Mac kept saying it would either succeed or it would say "an unexpected error has occurred." Nevertheless, same result: no KLA on my Control Center. The Key Light Ring was working though. Weird right?Ring lights are a type of key light. In this article, we review key lights with solid panels. Because they're more traditional, we refer to these simply as "key lights." OK, randomly a few months ago, my KLA decided to stop showing up in Control Center. I have no clue why as nothing really changed from a network hardware standpoint. I also did not disconnect or reset anything. These lights don’t come with a giant umbrella or a detachable diffusion plate. That design causes many lights to become too dim to use alone at night. With the Key Light and Key Light Air, the diffusion is built into the panel’s design. The Elgato Key Light has 160 and the Key Light Air has 80 small LEDs that illuminate from the edge inwards before being bounced off the reflective panel inside.
