      I have two on camera video lights. One is an off brand with more lights and the other is the MiniBurst 256. The MiniBurst 256 is brighter, has a much higher build quality, and comes with a beyond terrific carrying case. I really view this product as a professional video light and works great for my video business. I really think this light competes well with all the other lights in its price range.

      I purchased 3 items, and one is DOA. I depended on it for a shoot tomorrow morning, and was totally shocked to see the first item I opened, was Dead. I mean dont they check these things before they are packaged out at the end of the assembly line? Item was not broken, but just plain Dead On Arrival (No function whatsoever, no power up, nothing, zero!) Very dissapointed to say the least.

        Comments about Digital Juice MiniBurst 256 LED Portable Video Light System:

        I just purchased this light and so far I am impressed. I use it on a network TV show. It works great for hiding in small sets, but giving a fair mount of light. The built in dimmer works well and is easy to adjust. The color balance is very solid. It has two 1/4" x 20 mounting holes that give good mounting options. The soft side case that comes with it is adequate.
        Time will tell if it is sturdy enough to hold up to the rigors of TV production.

                    Comments about Digital Juice MiniBurst 256 LED Portable Video Light System:

                    I had some reservation because of the reports of DOA units. I ordered well in advance of my need, just in case those reports were true. Not so, the light is fine and I tested it more than most gear before it went into the video bag.

                    It is solid. Nice metal housing, quality switch and dimmer. It took about 2 hours to drain the battery and it recharged fine. I use a lot of daylight florescent for studio and location work. Florescent is still my choice in lumens for the $. But this fills the need for run and gun, and comes in handy for a quick setup on a closeup. I will pick up a second unit for another camera and to have the ability to gang two together.

                      I needed something portable and bright and these lights met both of those needs. The construction is very good and they are very bright. The light is pretty soft too. I primary am a photographer and used them at a wedding for some night shots and they looked amazing!. Used them for some headshots too and they worked great. Also used them for a video interview and worked great for that application too. My only complaint and this may be my fault is the following. I charged the batteries full, used the lights then drained the batteries. the next time I went to charge them, the charger never told me that they were fully charged. The batteries still work though. Love the lights and would recommend them to a friend.

                        Very happy with the MiniBurst 256. I mount it to an an arm on my Zacuto Scorpion rig. Performed well out of the box. Used it on a three day shoot a week ago (just got it), and the battery held up. I turned it on and off as needed, so it wasn't running 8 hrs/day, nonetheless did its job.In terms of build quality, good product. Minimal plastic, nice aluminum housing, quality toggle switch, and rheostat. I buy quality and return inferior products. This is a keeper.To paraphrase one of Braun's chief designers from days passed, "having a poor quality tool is like not having the tool at all." I judge my video tools this way. I often find myself far afield interviewing people and filming installations. The 256 is a good tool. I'd like to have a small arsenal of them. Watch the product demo to see why.

                            We like these lights a lot!B&H is cheaper than Digital Juice unless they are having a sale. These lights are really well made and come with all the accessories you will need to get going. Color filter, softener (we still use a soft box), AC Adaptor, Car adaptor, adjustable mount for tripod or light stand use, large battery and charger - all in a really small softcase. Great packaging DJ!The lights themselves are metal construction so I have no doubt they will last a while. They also stay very cool to the touch even after being set at full brightness for hours. The included batteries lasted about 2 hours at full brightness, but we will always opt for AC power when we can.We would REALLY love something like this that included barn doors to help direct the light a bit more. But since they stay cool, we have even been able to use gaff for this without worry of setting anything on fire.If you are using them to light talent, be aware that they are pretty bright so have something available to soften the light.

                              These lights are small, but they produce a very bright, even light. I would say they are equally as bright as my Litepanels 1x1 "focusable" LED elements and these will run, at full brightness for nearly three hours on one Sony NP-F970 equivalent battery! They are fully dimable as well. I liked the first two I purchased so much, I bought 4 more! My entire video lighting kit was exclusively LitePanels 1x1 and LitePanels Hilio. I still use them, but for a shoot where I need to travel extremely light, these will be my go-to lights because I know they can easily handle it! I would describe myself as a professional videographer with 25 years in the industry. My only choices on this review was as a photographer, so I chose "Pro Photographer". You might want to fix that B&H!

                              Battery will not hold a charge. It's a shame I really wanted to keep this light. The battery and the charger are junk. If you need a reliable light look elsewhere.

                              Very nice light, batteries life is not great. Died in the middle of a shoot, under 1.5 hours. Plugged it in the next day and was fine.

                                WOW doesn't begin to express my satifiaction with these lights. In fact I bought two 256s and four 128s. Not having to worry about finding a power outlet plug is priceless, especially in some older buildings. All of the included charging adapters make it easy to keep charged batteries on hand. The nice case is a real plus too.

                                The ONLY minus with LED style lights is the odd light fall-off when using sharp-edged flags caused by the rows of LEDs. If they staggered every other row it would help alot.

                                I have two on camera video lights. One is an off brand with more lights and the other is the MiniBurst 256. The MiniBurst 256 is brighter, has a much higher build quality, and comes with a beyond terrific carrying case. I really view this product as a professional video light and works great for my video business. I really think this light competes well with all the other lights in its price range.

                                  I like the fact that it uses standard batteries as well as the light is good enough for what I bought it for. However I purchased 3 of these at once, and the first one I opened was DOA (Dead On Arrival). I wonder how after passing the "tests" and "inspections" at the factory, a unit can still reach a customer, being totally dead? I had to go to the store to replace it and now am happy again at the end. I will see how this works for a while and decide on my next purchase, or not.

                                        I purchased 3 items, and one is DOA. I depended on it for a shoot tomorrow morning, and was totally shocked to see the first item I opened, was Dead. I mean dont they check these things before they are packaged out at the end of the assembly line? Item was not broken, but just plain Dead On Arrival (No function whatsoever, no power up, nothing, zero!) Very dissapointed to say the least.
