Could someone explain how and why a ringlight is used? It seems to me a ring around the lens aiming directly at the subject at 5600K. A soft source. What is its application though?
Mainly just for glamorous, shadowless portrait lighting of women.

Or very small things which are so close to the lens that the camera itself shadows them. Usually in macro photography, but also used in non-cinematographic applications like machine vision for robots and microscopy.
