Customer Reviews

This light is very bright but has the ability to adjust output to the exact level you need.

I use mine to provide some much needed fill light to lift the shadows off people's faces in interviews while shooting my independant video work.
Andrew Butts
Bottom line is I will buy another one as soon as I have the funds, but here is the whole story.

This is a very bright light. I wasn't expecting much out of it honestly. The adjustable brightness is fantastic to have on this device. The low levels are great for filler light in pictures or video. The light on full power is very bright. Enough to light up a small room pretty well. The only thing I don't like is that the base is a little flimsy. I may get around to making a better one since it has bolts that appear to come off. Overall a great investment for a camera.

UPDATE: About the flimsy base. I took one of the joints out and just screwed the base directly to the light unit (see the pic I added). No additional parts or modifications needed. This is much more sturdier when mounted now. Also, not a big fan of any of the colored filters. They are just too strong. The frosted diffuser is all I use and it works fine. This has turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting. I want to order another one and use it for lighting a green screen behind someone because they are so small and bright.

Another update: Made this review October 22, 2011. It's now September 2013. Looking back this is not a very good review but oh well. Anyways, the light is still working fine. Nothing broken and all led's still light up. With the fix above about removing one of the joints on the base, I've had no mounting issues. I use this light all the time both for video, photos as well as around the house whenever I need a light. It's a really bright light. The only thing to add is that the battery charge indicator on the back isn't the most trustworthy. It seems to be based on voltage so my rechargables always show low on it. I use eneloop with it and I go a pretty long way between recharges. I still recommend this light to people.

The product description fails to list all of the attributes of this light. In particular, it fails to note that the unit has an intensity adjustment control knob and that the unit takes various kinds of batteries, including AA's. It is in fact (or appears to be) EXACTLY the same unit sold, at a substantially higher price ($20+), by several other vendors on amazon.
Note: the shoe-mount bracket is plastic and the top-heavy unit could thus break off a camera's hot shoe mount if you handle the camera roughly/ carelessly. But if you handle this with reasonable care, it is a good accessory at a good price.

Cons:

Articulating arm not very articulate or stout

Video is a light hungry beast and to really get the best out of your camera, you need to make sure you have enough illumination. The LED video light is a great little tool for just providing a little bit of light when you need it most. As a professional wedding videographer I'm always shooting in darkly lit halls and venues which are purposely dark to set a certain romantic or intimate mood for the evening. I was in need of a small light like this to just add a little light when needed without being too obtrusive to the venue, the couple or the photographer I may be working along side.

Along with the light itself, the package includes 3 different colored plastic translucent plates to slide over the lights to change the color (or temperature as it's referred to). I found these to be fairly useful depending on the circumstance but at the same time I was a bit concerned about changing the light too much that would make my video hard to color balance in post production. For the most part I just stuck with the white diffusion plate or none at all.

The light features a roll wheel on the side to power on and adjust brightness. At full power it definitely appears to be very bright. So bright that I would rarely use it at that power for fear of completely washing out my subject. I would recommend turning up the power gradually and gauging through your camera's light meter to find the sweet spot.

The unit comes with a few adapters to be able to take a variety of batteries.

I take a stab at the LED panel, and show off how this blindingly bright item is used and abused.

EDIT with an update on what you can expect regarding the light's output:

I wanted to see how long the light could output its maximum brightness on a fresh set of batteries.

Conditions for the test:
- The light turned up to max brightness.
- Fully charged rechargeable Panasonic Eneloop 1.2v 1900mAh batteries
- Nikon D700 spot metered @ 5ft from the light, with the spot located in the center of the light panel. 1/1000 second f/16 ISO 200 with proper exposure at 0+/-.

For around two hours, the output was 100%.
At around the 2:00 hour mark, the output dropped by 1 stop.
After 2:15, the output was down by 2 stops.
After 2:30, output was down by 3 stops.
At 2:35, output dropped by 4 stops.
At 2:50, output was down by 6 stops.

I stopped measuring at this point, as the faint ambient light in the room would have started to affect the readings, and when the meter hit 3 stops underexposed at f/16 I had to open up to f/8 to continue to measure.
Bottom line is - the panel has considerably robust output for a full two hours. After the two hour mark, the output seems to drop off at an exponential rate.
Using regular alkaline batteries would probably extend the length of 100% ouput by a decent amount, but that's speculation on my part, although it would make sense since something like an Energizer EN91 has close to a 3000 mAh rating at 1.5v, as opposed to the 1900 mAh at 1.2v of the Eneloop.
