EXCELLENT QUALITY DAYLIGHT BALANCED LED LIGHT
Only just received this and played with it briefly. Purchased after extensive research direct from Pixapro (though price through Amazon pretty much the same). Purchased for video use (I partly work in video/TV production). From my research I would say that this is easily as good as the Aputure LS1s which costs quite a bit more. This has similar build quality by the look of it - if not better, with really good barn doors that fold properly flat. The rated output is higher than the LS1. It is also remote control (comes with remote). It also takes V-lok / V-mount Sony style batteries and comes with power brick for mains use (lead is generous enough to reach the floor from 7 foot stand at least). It has no fan so is silent. The yoke/mount is very solid and when loosened a quarter turn on either side allows the whole lamp to pivot in stages up or down - feels very sturdy. CRI rating is 95 - not quite as high as the Aputure possibly but higher than all the cheap LED lights and I'm pretty certain it will be accurate enough for professional video use. You can also order a softbox separatey from Pixapro for £30 (mine is currently on order so I cannot comment on the quality of this yet). The LEDs are protected provided you leave in place the removable acrylic diffuser sheet. This ('S') model is the daylight only version (5600k) so comes with an additional orange CTO sheet to correct the light for tungsten-lit environments. All parts mentioned fit in the provided bag which is of good quality. Customer service/communication with Pixapro has so far been excellent and the light is posted out from their UK HQ - arrived within a matter of days!
I will update this review when I have had chance to use the light in a professional video environment (within the next few weeks).
NB I also considered the even more powerful 100d Mkii light that Pixapro create but does have a fan (albeit reviews suggest it is quiet) and the CRI rating is slightly lower - 94 as opposed to 95 for this model. There is a 2000 LED version of this light but I considered the 1500 version to be the sweet spot between price, size and power.
I hope this helps people as I have found researching and choosing among the myriad LED light options to be a bit of a nightmare!
