Nice Little Light!

By

from Virginia

I shoot (stills primarily) a lot on the run for a local newspaper and tend to use available light. This light has been perfect adding a bit here and there in a dial-able mode from tungsten to daylight with a dimmer switch as well! Portrait of a chef in a kitchen, food plates, small products in a fast and easy to use what you see is what you get fashion. My only con is the battery life. Hard to say, maybe 25 minutes. Otherwise 5 stars!

So Good I bought another

By

from New York

I used this product for a while as an on camera light. It it amazing. It is lightweight and ergonomic to use. My original concern was that the unit seemed to be cheaply built and had a plastic, almost flimsy feel, but the unit proved to be reliable and well made The color temperatures are accurate. The batteries power the unit at full power for several hours. I bought a second light to mount on a stand and use as a side light or backlight. It is great because it is low profile, portable, and powerful, yet efficient. I will probably be purchasing another one very soon as a three point interview lighting kit.

Defective Charger Port

By

from Tampa FL

Save your packaging! Got this with a broken transformer input charger port. Love the light output with battery power but can't plug into AC. Threw away the packaging before I knew it was defective so now I'm stuck and can't return it or even find out how to get it repaired.

Will likely be getting more of these!

By

from Baltimore MD

My very first impression upon opening the box was a bit negative. The product felt cheaply built. Also the batteries didn't slide in very easily, as if the socket for them was not made to the exact proper size. Finally the mounting system was a bit cumbersome and confusing to set right. All that aside I was very impressed with the actual functionality of this light when compared with other LEDs I already use. It has a real true step-less dimmer that can be set to any brightness. The temperature is controlled by having two color lights and a knob adjusts the brightness of them. Even with the tempurater set to the extremes (half the LEDs are off), the light still proved to be very bright and effective. I tested it mainly at wedding during which the ballroom lights were turned of in place of disco lights. I found myself still able to get a very reasonable image using my light without having to raise my ISO. I would definitely recommend getting extra/bigger batteries to go along with this as the ones it comes with do not last very long. I did not give this product 5 stars, but only because of the cheap build. On functionality alone this is the best on-camera light I've used so far and I will probably be getting a few more them.

Excellent On Camera Light

By

from New York

I have tried the cheap LEDS available on the internet as well as the expensive name brand LEDs. This one exceeded every one of my expectations. This light works great as an on-camera light. Prior to purchasing I spoke to a very friendly and knowledgeable Adorama Product Specialist. Aesthetically, Although it is rather large, it is well designed. At first glance it looks and feels like a lot of soft plastic, but can handle the "stress and rigors" of being an on-camera light for a handheld event videographer. The slim Sony type batteries keep the unit well balanced and even drain power. It is easy to access the color temperature and dimmer knobs, even while recording handheld video. Although it adds weight and throws off the balance, there is a convenient accessory cold shoe on the top, perfect for a wireless receiver. The quality of the light being output is very good. The color temperature seems to be accurate at both the 3200k as well as the 5600K settings without annoyingly harsh color tints. The included diffusion panel is great for softening the light for a more pleasing look. In a dimly lit reception hall, At minimum power, the unit outputs enough light to illuminate a subject 4-6 feet away without annoying glare. At maximum power, the unit can easily illuminate a group of people 15- 20 feet away.

Excellent Video & Photo light

By

from Vero Beach, Fl  -  Film Professional

Bought 3 of these 1 for my video guy and 2 for me, well my video guy loves it says it worked as good as his 4 other expensive light but not as strongly made. Mine worked great for wedding photography, my second shooter loved it so much and was getting such great shots that I gave here one of mine to keep. The only reason I gave it 4 stars not 5 was the first time out the battery relies button broke off, but battery still stays on so no big deal but wish it was made a little stronger.

great little led

By

from Washington DC, Baltimore area  -  Film Professional

good little light, decent output for the size. only about an hr battery life, i did put some np-f960's on them which upped the time quite a bit. the lack of ac adapter is a little annoying, but its a pretty standard thing thats easy to get. great on a boom arm as a back light, or little pop light. don't go in thinking you will get the same intensity as even a lowell mini-pro (250w), you will be disappointed, but works well in conjunction with other lighting or for a dimmer look. will give you a little fill for daylight if you have a dim, or window key. barn doors would be nice. i ordered four for shoot, one came with a dimmer/chip/power issue. had to send it back for different one.

Good Light but Build Quality is ok

By

from Houston, Tx  -  Tech Savvy

Purchased this and an Ikan iLed312 ( this flashpoint appears to be a copy of that light) to compare and decide if the Ikan price was justified. First off the build quality it OK not great but for the price it is good enough. The Ikan however is heavier and even feels and look sturdier. The accessories included with the Ikan are much much better, and the diffusion panel is way easier to attach. Even the charger is much nicer and swapping batteries is much easier on the Ikan. But all that aside the light output is actually the same as the ikan They both are bright and even. The only problem i noticed was a slight green shift on the 3200K setting. However the 5600K setting was exactly the same as the Ikan. So for the money you get almost the same light quality and same quantity. However I did end up returning the flashpoint brand because of one reason. The TEMPERATURE KNOB ON MY UNIT WAS REVERSED. (Bad quality control) Other than that this is a good light for someone starting out with LED Lights.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Michael C  I mainly use this awesome light for taking theatre cast photos. I can adjust the intensity and color temperature to match the surrounding lighting.
Shopper  Does this item use AC also?
ROD PATRICK R  Yes, this light unit has an AC power port which supports an AC adapter. It uses DC7.4~14.8V. You'll have to buy an AC adapter that is rated within that voltage range. CAUTION: DO NOT, REPEAT, DO NOT buy the "Seven Star by Adorama 1.5 volt - 12 volt DC, 500mA Universal AC Converter with Multiple Connector Ends". I thought I was getting a good value at $7 bucks, but I used this multi-purpose adapter on another unit and an hour later the adapter was melted and smoking. Definitely not safe and a fire hazard. Pick another AC adapter with a constant voltage output.
Shopper  How many watts does the LED produce?
Joe R  Don't know the wattage. It's not a lot, but the light is very controllable.
