What are RGB lights for YouTube videos?

RGB LED lights pack Red, Green, and Blue LED beads. They increase or decrease the number of each color bead to achieve different color combinations so as to create different hues of color lighting.

You can adjust RGB lighting to make a YouTube video look bright, dark, warm, cold, etc. Setting the lights to flash different colors might make them look like they're from a police car, a dance party, or another scenario. The lighting may be adjusted to make a scene appear bright and sunny, or chilly and overcast. It can also be adjusted to make a person appear smaller or larger. Placing lights on specific items or regions might bring viewers' attention to them.

How to choose the best RGB light for YouTube, TikTok, etc.?

Choosing RGB lighting for YouTube requires you to consider tint accuracy, light out, battery life, and build quality.

Tint accuracy: This is quite important. RGB lights will display a number or another measurement indicating the color they emit. However, the color is not always right. At a certain level, an RGB light may emit a shade of green, which is incorrect. Having the right colors in your video helps with lighting and assures the highest quality.

Light output: It measures the brightness. Some RGB lights provide less light than others. Light output is an important factor in setups that require a lot of light. If your videos demand bright illumination, remember to check its illumination figures.

Build quality: An RGB light that may simply break and is complex to use doesn’t deserve the money. A durable fixture allows you to use it anywhere under any weathers.
