Aladdin A-Lite Reviews

This is the one, but bring your wallet!

My "holy grail" of top lights for my news camera! No, it's not cheap but it is what I've wanted for years. A light weight, bi-color light that does not feel like a boat anchor when mounted on my camera's articulated arm. The controls are easy to get to. �The opposite side of the light is a latched door which gives you access to the cell phone style lithium battery it runs on. Charges from a USB and I have run it several times over an hour with no lose in power. �I am sure it will happen some day, but until then it has been an answer to my prayers. The diffuser which comes with it...works, but I took it off. �It just seemed more in the way than functional 90 percent of the time. I still give this light five stars. I leave it mounted on my camera all the time because it is light weight and not a burden to carry around like other lights. This is not an HMI. �It gives great bi-color light without the usual green tint issues cheaper brands produce. I wish they had identical mounting holes on the unit instead of the tiny one which the semi-usless diffuser attaches with. That way I could always have the light controls on the side I want no matter what direction I mount t on the articulated camera arm. It will be even better when the price comes down but, until then, my back says "thank you" for not adding weight to my broadcast camera! A poor man's "raincoat" will keep this expensive puppy dry in rain. I keep cheap zip lock bags to slip over it in case of rain!

Compact, High Output, Superior Quality Elven Tech

I cannot think of a more powerful led light panel for such a miniature size and weight. I love the built-in battery, simplifying charging workflow. Perhaps it was hand-made by Swiss elves, judging by its extremely high build quality and corresponding price... I will purchase more!

Eye light or working in a car at night for a key light.

This is an amazing small LED Bi-Color light. Great for an eye light or I have even used it to hang it over the back of an interview or MCU shot of a subject for a back light. It also is probably the best quick fix if your going to be photographing in a car at night. The out put is small but can really fill light in about a 4 to 5 foot area for filming. I would not think of using this light as my only light in my kit but for small spaces it is invaluable.

Great light, super lightweight, dimmable & color temp.

Love this light, good output for something of its size. Charges via usb can also be powered by an external usb battery, pretty handy. Battery lasted me over an hour at full charge and 100% output. Pros: no loose cables, built in diffusion, lightweight, color temp variable, dimmable. Cons. Cant change battery without unscrewing unit, makes buying the extra batteries pretty useless.
