In this SmallRig RM120 Review we will be having a very close look at the specifications, features and facilities of the RM120 and also where it stands in relation to all the other SmallRig RGB Video Lights.

What makes the SmallRig RM120 Different?

The RM120 is a powerful compact RGB Video light that provides 3 hours of light at full power thanks to it’s massive 5,000mah battery. Now you might be thinking it’s not very bright because it can run at full power for over 3 hours… Well it outputs 1,580 Lux at 0.3m which means it is a very bright light especially coming from such a small and compact product.

You can find out a bit more about the RM120 on my video below.

This is exactly what makes this light so very different to everything else in the SmallRig RGB Video light lineup. That huge battery and the light intensity is what truly sets this light apart from the rest.

I also have separate reviews of the other SmallRig RGB video lights if you are interested in reading more about them simply click the link on the model number to read it… SmallRig m160 RGB Video Light (coming soon) and the SmallRig RM75 smart RGB Video Light.

I will be doing a direct comparison post on the three of them very soon also as well as a video review on not just this light but also showcasing each light and what’s so different about them. So make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see that one 🙂

SmallRig RM120 RGB Video Light Battery capacity

SmallRig RM120 Housing and build quality.

While this light is incredibly bright it is also very lightweight at only 204g, this is done buy using an all metal case to act as both a tough external shell and also a heat sink to dissipate any heat away from the RGB Light.

There is a nice LCD display on the back which shows you not just what mode you are in and the light intensity but also the remaining battery capacity.

At 4.9 inches by 2.9 inches and only 0.6 inches thick this light can easily fit in your pocket or gear bag and take up little to no room.

SmallRig RM120 RGB Video Light Effects and Controls


This RGB Light is incredibly simple to use as you can see from the image below there is a separate power switch, Mode Button, Brightness control and adjustment control.

Having the ability to just quickly change the light intensity at the turn of a wheel is great and the separate power switch is something that should be in all RGB Video lights and not one of those multi function buttons you need to hold down for two or three seconds to switch it on or off…
Can you tell I had lights like that before? Yes it was a bit painful when the lights were in place as it wasn’t always easy to reach them and holding down a button was annoying.

SmallRig RM120 RGB Video Light Features

Who is the SmallRig RM120 for?

Well anyone that wants a really powerful RGB Video light that just keeps going that’s exactly who this light is for. The other SmallRig RGB Lights are great for different reasons like…

The SmallRig RM75 RGB Light is great as it’s Smart and you can control it on your phone which is an amazing feature when you need it but it’s not as bright and the battery doesn’t last as long as this light.

The SmallRig M160 is a larger light and yes it’s incredibly powerful but the battery again is the week point there.

So if you need a light that just keeps going this is the one for you.

You can buy the RM120 here on Amazon or also on the official SmallRig website here.
