I'm looking to use my camera (Sony A7RIII) as a webcam, and am looking for an OK ring light to use. My lighting in my apartment isn't the best, and a ring light will definitely help.

I tried buying one of those ring lights that screw into the filter thread of the camera lens, but the vignetting was really bad, though the lighting was great. My current though in an ideal world is to find a tripod I can use on my desk (need a sturdy one with flat feet - my desk can move up and down), have a ring light attached and mount the camera inside the ring light.

However, all the lights I see on Amazon I can't figure out which ones will let me use an attachment to mount my camera and not a cell phone. Ideally trying to spend around $50 if possible.

Any ideas?

Put you camera on a tripod and put the ring light on a light stand in front of the camera so that the lens is in the middle of it. Don't try to mount an expensive camera on a cheap ring light.
