I used them to video in night clubs and they worked great.

Over all, I like it so much that I am planning to get another one of this to add for good measure.

You can control the light intensity by using the variable control knob.

This thing just works. Used it to shoot a symphony ball atop my 5dmkIII and got great even color temp with all light intensities. I didn't opt for using a rechargeable battery, but with normal batteries, I was able to get something like 4+ hours out of it. I never actually depleted the batteries because the shoot only lasted those 4 hours. I recommend picking this thing up.

I used on a video shoot. This is one powerful light. Don't use alkaline batteries though, they will heat up dangerously hot. (the batteries not the light) I would recommend getting the battery pack. I will test with Nickel metal hydride and let everyone know. I had three of these lights and it was enough to power a 3 point light setup for a hair and makeup shoot.

I received this light about 2 weeks ago and have used it on one video job so far. A wedding reception for 4 hrs. I really like the light weight design and the 96 led lights in a 16x9 pattern. It has a wide beam and from the video comparisons I have seen, and my own personal use, I think it beats the competitors. I previously owned a Litepanels Led light and 2 cool lux lights that I put Led bulbs in and an glad I sold them and purchased this HDV-Z96 LED Photo/Video Light Kit.
While using it on the first shoot I had used the AA batteries in the light instead of the rechargeable camera batteries but am today testing to see how long it will run on a Large fully charged NON OEM Hi-capacity B-963 7.4 Volt Li-ion battery. As I am writing this the light has been on using the Hi-capacity B-963 battery for 2 3/4 continuous hrs without a flicker. (I am editing this to let everyone know it ran for 5.5 hrs on my 4 year old B-963 6900mAh battery) When this battery does finally run out I will test a smaller and then a smaller Sony NP570 battery. (The 5 year old Sony NP570 battery ran it for 1hr 25 min) There was no flicker just out like a light switch.
The light has 2 magnetic filters that come with it. I really like those. I added another pice of diffusion paper in between and the magnets hold it firm and secure. I have on occasion lost the diffusion paper when using my older Cool lux and light panel lights but do not worry about these coming off or getting too hot.
The hot shoe connector that comes with it is very useful and secure. You can adjust the pan or tilt of the light and when tightened I have not had it come loose.
You can control the light intensity by using the variable control knob. It is easy to turn on and off on the fly during some run and gun shooting.

These lights are amazing. I used them to video in night clubs and they worked great. I purchased a pair, when I needed more light I just snapped the second light on and it was daylight in the club. Great for interviews as well.

To my horror this z-96 light did not live up to other reviews on this product, the reviews on amazon convinced me 2 purchase this light in the first place.

Coming from a professional film background, this is not the level of craftsmanship u would expect a light, that should last you and keep putting out quality light. I am scared to say I do not believe anything under $300 dollars does. But I took a chance due to the reviews on amazon - i didn't realize the scary thing - no warranty comes with this z-96 light.

Maybe this light works great for some people. The crazy thing is, for spending $160 bucks- if the light craps out cause it's not made well or at least the model I did received was not. The battery connectors fried out in a day - so this happens 3 days past sellers 30 day period. He wants me to pay $60 plus bucks and not even be "promised that he can get me another one". Breakdown to getting a replacement light for my broken light- $27.70 to overnight the broken light to Tennessee- then another $20 to ship the light back 2 me, he says he's helpful. lol

I have a sneaky feeling that some of the reviews for this light on amazon, have other motives behind them.

If any one finds a light that works well under "$200 let me know" I did get a refund back for this light, I had to talk to amazon and You should make sure they help you when - u file your claim, I marked the wrong box the first time.

I'm not sure what happened to D. Toms' light but we've been using our light for many weddings and events and it's performed wonderfully. Throw a Sony battery on and you're good for a long time. I love the dimmer and how it puts out an adequate amount of light that isn't too too harsh.
We liked it so much we bought another light for our other camera crew.
We've realistically probably used this light for at least 30 weddings thus far and it works like new and no I'm not a paid reviewer.
