Logitech Litra Glow – Put yourself in the spotlight


For YouTube streamers, as well as video conferencing tigers, good lighting is important to not look so unhealthy and half-visible. With the Litra Glow, Logitech offers an affordable solution to put yourself in the spotlight without the need for sunglasses. We tested it for this Litra Glow review.

The Litra Glow is very purposefully designed and has few frills. It is a plastic holder with a light on a rotating head that you can easily hang on your monitor or laptop screen. Thanks to the universal tripod connection, you can also leave the holder for what it is and use a (mini) tripod to place the lamp.

In practice you will definitely notice that your face is illuminated better and more evenly. You do need to have a decent webcam. Older laptops and webcams do benefit a little from the light, but larger differences can be seen with better webcams with a higher resolution.

Control Logitech Litra Glow

On the back of the lamp are the buttons to make it burn harder and softer, to turn it on and off and to set the color temperature. You can choose from five shades from cool blue to slightly yellowish warm white. The brightness can also be adjusted in five steps. There is nothing more.

The power is via a USB-C connection. The lamp comes with a very short USB-A to USB-C cable that you can plug into your monitor or laptop. A built-in battery would be a handy extra, but that makes it more expensive and heavier.

You can of course use it in a separate USB power supply or power bank stop, but you will not be able to use the optional software. It offers the same options as the buttons on the back, plus the option to activate preset profiles. So handy.

Light yourself up to your liking with the rotatable and height-adjustable Litra Glow.

Not dazzling

If you have the lamp at its brightest, it may seem like it is bad for your eyes at first. If you close your eyes, you will see a light spot, but according to Logitech, the lamp is safe enough for streaming or video calling all day long. After hours of use, my eyes didn’t hurt either. Thanks to the TrueSoft technique, the color fastness and uniformity are also in order. Not so important for video callers, but for streamers.

Due to the LEDs, diffuser and lenses used, the Litra Glow provides uniform and glare-free light.

Conclusion

For relatively little money, the Litra Glow is a handy, widely applicable light. Other solutions are a lot more expensive and this is more than sufficient, especially for video callers. Thanks to the simple operation, you can’t go wrong whether during the stream or the video calling crash or change. And if you would like some extra light at your workplace, just turn it on all day long.
