Comparing Flexible LED Panels: Godox vs Aputure vs Westcott vs Aladdin

Flexible LED Light Mat Panels can have lots of applications in videography and filmmaking, especially when it comes to needing easy to transport, lightweight lighting options. There are a range of flexible mats on the market that fit a range of different needs, including from Westcott, Amaran, and Aladdin. But now, Godox are releasing their very own range of flexible light mats as the F Series range. 

See below for a full specification comparison of the new Godox panels vs competitors' options. 

Godox have announced two new variations of Flexible LED Panel, with one being the FL Series, rivalling Westcott and Amaran's flexible panels with their similar sizes and wattages. They offer a similar colour temperature range (if a little smaller than the other brands at 3300K - 5600K), and are significantly more affordable than the other ranges of flexible panels on the market, in some cases, by around £800. 

The Godox FL (and the Amaran) Panels also support V-Mount Battery powering alongside Mains adapter power, opening up your options for location shooting without worrying about extra cables or power sources. Also available are softboxes with grids designed specifically for these panels to purchase separately. 

The second Godox range comprises of the new F200Bi, F400Bi, and the F600Bi, which not only offer a much wider colour temperature range (2700K - 8500K), but also much higher wattage options. In a range of 200w, 400w, and 600w panels, two of three of these mats are higher in power than the most powerful of the other options (the 350w Aladdin Panel), however this is also a likely reason why these panels are mains powered only and don't support batteries. 

Another major selling point for the FBi series is the IP rating. At an impressive IP64, these panels are highly weather resistant, which could be a dealbreaker when sourcing equipment for certain projects. 

The prices for the new Godox F Series has yet to have been announced, however if priced similarly to the FL Series, these will likely be a great option for broadcast and video industries looking for a more affordable flexi-panel option, combining the key selling points of it's competitors products.
