    AXRTEC AXR-A reviews

    AXR-A-1040DV Daylight LED Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't find a better light... ...than this for the value. I purchased a couple of these lights for many applications, such as interviewing, indoor, and on location shooting. So, I needed these for multiple purposes and the one thing that pushed me to get these lights was the versatility of having many accessories to pair with the lights. Just one light is packed with accessories including a diffusion filter, remote control, digital readout, and barn door set among other things. When it comes to the quality of the lights, boy, I must say I was surprised with just how bright and pleasant the color was. Everything I shot indoors and outdoors and at live events looked natural. They can run almost 2 hours at a single session of continuous use running cool. I recommend this light to anyone looking for a run-and-gun light that gives off a lot of throw, comes with most of the accessories you need, and is easy to set up anywhere.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Compact Light As a video pro for more than 30 years, I'm always looking for additions to my kit that will make my job easier. I do lots of interviews, so LED's in general have definitely made it easier on me and my talent. This light is actually smaller than I expected - about 20% smaller than another 1K LED I own - which makes it much less cumbersome to carry around. The included carrying case is also a nice plus. I also own an NP-F Battery to V-Mount Battery Adapter that allows me to use the cheaper batteries. However, it was gathering dust because it didn't seem to have enough juice to power up the larger LED. On a whim, I tried it with this light and it fired right up. Haven't timed it yet, but I'm glad to see I can use it in a pinch outdoors w/o buying expensive v-mount batteries. For the money, it's a nice addition to my LED arsenal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good light at any price. I am very impressed with this light. The price discount was what attracted me first. I did not regret the purchase once I received it. The 5600k light output is accurate and bright. The dials are solid and responsive. The barn doors are stiff and stay in place. The body is heavy duty and made of metal unlike plastic lights that cost more. This light's ability to use V-mount batteries makes it ideal for outdoor location shoots which is my primary purpose for this light. The included bag holds everything securely. My only suggestion would be to add a hole to the mount so an umbrella could be installed to soften the light more.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really wanted to like this light I've had this light for a couple of weeks. No diffusion filter was in the box. Called B&H Customer Service. Said they would contact the manufacturer and they should be in touch with me in a few days. Still nothing. I emailed B&H for an update and still nothing. I turned the light on to make sure it works and it's bright but without proper diffusion its too bright and basically useless for my needs. Will more than likely send it back. Missed items happen but there's no excuse for bad communication.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tungsten filter I purchased this one and the bi colour along with a Lee filter kit so I could use the Daylight with tungsten but what it does not say in the description is that if comes with a tungsten duffer. the while frosted one that you see in the photo comes out and you slide and lock the other one in place. I am still going to keep my filter kit in case I need to better match both light in tungsten. For those people who need exact colour matching this might be a downfall but Its a nice bright light. I have also attached a piece of frost to the barn doors with cloth pins really softens the light when you need to

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wont get a better light for the money Ok so I got lucky and picked these up on sale, they are now over twice the price that I got them for... so with that said, the only other light that comes close to the quality is the Apature light that goes for around 700 bux. The color I measured at 5350K, so not exactly 5600 but that was also taking into account my RED camera and vintage Zeiss lenses, so they might have warmed up the image. There was no real detectable +/- green shift when testing in semi-controlled setup. At first I thought the wireless was gimicky, but right away I realized that using regular lights, I miss having the remote. You can chain a bunch of these lights to 1 remote, or use 1 remote to dim different lights by dialing in different channels on the remote itself. I own 5 and they can all hop on the same channel as a master dimmer. I haven't tried DMX linking yet, but its also super nice to have as well as it coming with the DMX cat-6 to 4Pin adapter. Build quality is a 8 out of 10... Plastic knobs, would have liked metal, they are also HUGE, they could have made them much smaller, and allowed you to store them easier. The 5/8's yoke female connector also uses a plastic knob, and does NOT have a cut-out for mounting horizontal vs vertical. Only other issue is the rotatory knob on the back is way too big, and the antenna is also big. In short, for a few more bux you can swap out the antenna and knob to much smaller components and it becomes easier to store. Light quality is nice, the LEDs are so packed in there, there is no microshaddow issues. The barndoors are removable, and to be honest they aren't really that useful for most situations. Only when hiding the side of the light from reflections, will you need them. The light becomes much thinner without them, it takes 4 long screws in the front to remove the doors. The gels aren't really useful, the frost isn't that much different because it sits too close to the LED's, and the CTO isn't color balanced and a regular cheap sheet of actual CTO works much better. You get that stuff for free, so it's no downside. The light is brighter than anything else on the market within it's size and price range. Again only the Apature light is a bit brighter, but thats only because it packs more LEDs. The Apature light is more cumbersome because of its separate power supply and controller. This light is equal to a 650w Arri Fresnel. Also note that this review is for the DAYLIGHT only version, the bi-color version is less bright in either daylight or tungsten mode. Power draw is incorrect in the specs, it's 64w not 32w. I listed everything I thought was wrong but yet the light is still king, it's quality is lovely, and remote and DMX options really open up this light to be used in many professional setups. Oh and it's full brightness when running off V-mount battery, it doesn't drop the lux at all. Speaking of which Lux = 900 at 10ft. I don't know why they never posted those specs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light i use for both video shoots and stills, it kicks out a ton of color correct light. I've got some led's that cost more than double the cost of this one but this is actually the one i use most.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great punch, not so great color, but it was a bargain I buyer this when it was announced in the Deal Zone. They're very nice well built high output lights. But the color is too green. I've buyed Genaray SpectroLED-14 and they're far cheaper and better color rendering. But AXRTEC have better form factor, much better built quality, barndoors, remote control, DMX, can be powered by a external V-mount battery, etc. Still, i think they should be cheaper since there are many other options wich have better color rendering for less money
