Illuminance Data: 

The Godox P600Bi is introduced with a power consumption of 700W, while the Lightstar LUXED-4 has a slightly higher power consumption of 720W. This is why the Lightstar LUXED-4 stands out with an impressive 13000 lux thanks to it's fresnel lens design, boosting the light and providing a luminous and well-illuminated scene at 3m and 5m distances. It also maintains an equally impressive 13000 lux at 5600K.

On the other hand, the Godox P600Bi, comprised of small LEDs provides a slightly lower lux at 3200K compared to the Lightstar LUXED-4 film light panel, which offers a substantial 10300 lux at 3m. However, this level still ensures professional-grade illumination for a broad range of applications, even in warmer colour temperatures.

In fact, the LUXED-4 light panels with higher lux and foot-candle (FC) values provide significantly brighter illumination, which is advantageous in scenarios where a well-lit environment is essential, such as for video productions or filmmaking. However, because of its higher brightness levels, this can lead to increased energy consumption and heat generation. In other words, the P600Bi with lower lux and fc values generally consumes less power, making it more energy-efficient and portable. This can lead to cost savings over time, especially when prolonged usage is required.

Weight and Dimensions: 

The Lightstar LUXED-4 is large and heavy, tips the scales at 24 kg, and has physical dimensions of 94.5cm x 91cm x 21.6cm (37.2 cm x 35.8 cm x 8.5 cm). While it may not be the most compact option available, its heft suggests a focus on durability and stability, making it suitable for fixed installations where mobility is less critical.

In contrast, the Godox P600Bi is designed as a lightweight and compact LED panel with a weight of 10kg and dimensions of 571mm*499mm*121mm. Its design makes the Godox P600Bi ideal for photographers and videographers who frequently work on the move. Furthermore, this feature enhances the ease of transportation and setup, catering to those who prioritise flexibility in their creative endeavours. The LUXED-4 film light panel is suitable for permanent installation, the P600Bi, on the other hand, is ideal in diverse environments, especially in applications where mobility, quick setup, and flexibility are key considerations, such as location shoots and events.
