Product Description

This new Litepanels Micro is a great addition to your video or still camera. Utilizing color corrected LEDs, you are assured a even balanced output for perfect video or images every time. This LED technology runs cool yet still gives a bright soft light, perfect in all situations. Unlike flash, this continuous light allows you to see exactly how your lighting looks at all times taking the guess work out of set ups. A built in filter holder allows for additional diffusion or color correction filters for special effects. 4 AA batteries are all that are needed to power this unit for up to 2 hours (alkaline) or a ac power supply is available when super long run times are needed. the built in foot fits in most camera and video accessory shoes for easy set up. A 1/4 -20 socket is also included for mounting on light stands or tripods. The on/off knob also has a dimming feature for the ultimate control of your output giving you a "key Light" or subtle fill effect to brighten the eyes. This lightweight, flicker free compact unit is the perfect choice for your camera bag.

This is a dynamite little package. In one test I did, it illuminated an entirely dark (as in no light at night) twelve foot square room adequately enough for good low-light shooting. With ambient light, it's great. It is lightweight especially with 4 disposable lithium AA batteries which last about 7 to 8 hours (4 for $10.00). The light is bright without the blinding glare of a single bulb and stays cool to the touch. There is no color shift when dimming the light. The movable frame that flips up and down is very flimsy so be careful with it. Mine easily comes off and I have had to tape the diffusor to the frame to keep it from falling out. But in all fairness, I rarely lift the frame so it is almost irrelevant. I use this light on a Panasonic DVX 100B with an external shotgun mic. My only real complaint is the knob that allows the light to move forward or backward is between the light mount and mic making it very difficult to adjust. It is challenging to tighten it enough by hand to avoid any movement so they have incorporated a slot in the knob so one can use a coin as a screwdriver for the final tightening. This is tough with the light still mounted on my camera. On cameras without an external mic, which is probably what this product was designed for, I don't think the knob position would be an issue. I still wish Lightpanels had put the knob on the opposite side or better yet, made it reversible. If not for that, I would give this gem five stars. I have reviewed some of Litepanels more expensive products at their showroom in Burbank, CA. All were terrific. They are a top flight company and I would give them five stars.

First, for about $25 worth of parts, this is quite a markup but that's the video world. It's a cool, lightweight source of even, balanced light, especially with the diffusion. It's great for fill and eye light, balanced for daylight. The flip down gel panel is nice but flimsy. The whole thing is flimsy but it does what it does well. The dimmer is nice. I tilts but I wish it would pan since I rarely have my subject centered. Now I use something like this to pan it: Hot Shoe Extension/Extender (20 cm)

This light is convenient, easy and compact the down side is it's a little weak. For example, in a completely dark room it works fine for interviews and lighting a subject up at close range but don't expect much more than that. So for the price I was expecting something that cast a little stronger light and was able to use the dimmer when I needed it.

I purchased the Litepanels LP Micro Compact LED Camera Light Kit for indoor tabletop studio use. The light source is not as bright as I was expecting and cheap plastic construction was a let down, given the high cost. Here's a run down of pros and cons:

Pros:
~ 100% - 0% light control (rheostat) works well.
~ Hot shoe mount with pivot head is nicely constructed and works well
~ Light weight; cool temperature operation (true of all LED lights)

Cons:
~ Nearly 3x more expensive than other models offering about 3x greater light output
~ Poor battery compartment design: NiMH rechargeable batteries bend the battery door, due to slightly larger diameter than disposable batteries
~ Flimsy color correcting and diffuser gels

Bottom-line: Better, brighter and less expensive LED compact lights are on the market. Shop around!

Although this unit is pretty neat, it is really of little use to the average photographer. It does not emit very much light and is only useful for close up photography. For over $250 it is made very cheaply. It looks and feels like it came right of the boat from China with about 7000 others.

For those shooting interviews with little additional help, this little light is quite useful. It has "almost" the power of the old quartz 'SUNGUN", but with a lot less weight and spectacular battery life. (and NO big battery belt.)

Our first test unit hit the floor any number of times, and thus far has always come up working. It's made of plastic, but seems solid enough, and it does not produce the skin-searing heat made by quartz lights. The dimmer is great, but because the light output from this fixture is rather diminutive, I'll bet you have that dimmer at full blast most of the time.

This is a news weapon, not really for high end production. However, it is so handy to place, I have used it as a special on a big set a number of times, and it makes a lamp on set a real practical with the correct color temp too!

You can hold this thing to the wall with a small strip of gaffer's tape, which is handy indeed.

When these came out, I thought - wow, what a neat idea. READ THE SMALL PRINT: Not only is the small print small, THEY are small as well. About 4" x 3" approximately and after a while, the dimmer switch starts acting strange and they start flickering when you use it. When this arrived in the mail, (after putting down over $300 bills for it) - I literally thought I had been robbed. This thing is flimsy plastic - and the base it plastic as well. Not soon after, other companies came out with their version of this at about a fraction of the cost (like $40) and work just as well, and are MADE BETTER !!! I found a place online that sells fish aquarium LED lights that are 1'x1' for $40 each !! These same LEDS would go for hundreds of dollars from Litepanel - if not close to a grand! Yes, the aquarium lights are on the blue side, but with a white balance in camera and a RAW image, anything is possible. Yes, Litepanel puts out a nice product in their high end stuff, but the only people who can afford it are the big production houses. So save some money and look around because their are competitors doing it better. One LED I saw recently even has little barndoors on them, which the litepanels don't on the Mini ones. Look around !
