              It works great for fill light in live view without the fiddle of a flash. For portraits, I am going to try a CTO gel.

                        I used this panel with my recently purchased nikon 1 V1 camera. It's small enough to atach to the flash hot shot (with nikon adapter) or attach a small L shape bracket to the tripod hole on the bottom of the camera to preserve a small,light,and compact camera and lighting system.The panel is very bright and great for torso portraits as well as fill in light without the burst of light that blinds you from a portable flash. Also hand held lighting off camera is the panels greatest feature.As I position the light on my subject while viewing my picture on the the live view 3 inch lcd screen , my images are more dramatic and life like. My short movies have great color.The variable light output knob works well.The only wish list I have to make this product better is that a light difuser be included with price of this unit.

                        Comments about Manfrotto ML240 Mini-24 LED Panel:

                        I'm a big fan of Manfrotto, lots of hardware here in the studio. Just a bit disappointed, but I've decided to keep this unit.
                        It's very small, lightweight(2 - AAA batteries).The knob is on/off and intensity, works well. It's light enough, that I can mount this on a video camcorder when using my Steadicam and balance it out quickly.
                        A few negatives - it's very little light, but can be helpful in very low light situations. It has a magenta cast to it. Looking at the LEDs, you can actually see that most are close to neutral, then about 6 LEDs have a significant magenta color. I can add a 1/8 Plusgreen Rosco Cinegel to get it close to it's advertised "Daylight" balanced color, though this knocks down the output some. I wonder why the panel behind the LEDs is black instead of white. Seems that would help light output some.
                        So I can recommend this unit, having shared it's shortcomings.
