Personally, I just starting using this new setup, and I love it. Here's a link to their page - I am using an iPhone 12 Pro and got everything off of Amazon:
Thanks a lot, AmishJedi. This very helpful.
My pleasure - I was really struggling as I got back into the hobby and wanted to photo-catalogue my collection in preparation to leave for my kids. This worked well for me, especially since I had so many raw coins to photograph.
I will say that I did put a coffee filter (cut to the size of the ring light with the center cut out) to diffuse the light when it is fully charged - was almost too bright. I used a Coke bottle twist cap (plastic) to elevate the coin off the background to assist in focusing.
Then, I use Photoshop to crop and save. Easy peasy.
Thanks, dougsmit. Seeing the comparisons between the direct light, ring light, and the combo helps. The one with the ring would do me well.
