Bescor FM-256 Reviews

Low quality, over priced

By Aaron
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-01-30

The began falling apart from day one. It works as described, but with plenty of frustration. In addition to having to handle it with care (it's very fragile, the seams pull out) it is tempermental. The remote sometimes doesn't pair and sometimes drains batteries when off. Sometimes turns on by itself after turning off with the remote.

a great light

Does the job!

If you order the 12x12, you may receive the 12x24 instead. Awesome!  LED is bright and does the job. Build quality is ok. The stitching connected to the plug on the panel is already coming off. Easy fix though.  The power plug that goes into the power adapter feels really loose. I just dumped the power plug and am using an extra one I had in my storage. Easy fix again! I really love it. Adds value to my videos. I give it 5 stars because of the price and it does the job.

This is an excellent light. I love the versatility of the flexible mat and the wireless remote. It is very bright and easy to carry around and set up. I would highly recommend this light.

It's pretty cool

It's a pretty cool product, I like that i can bend it and drape it off of pretty much anything (i've been using the back of a chair). I also like that it weighs nothing and can throw it in my backpack. I generally use the same settings each time, so its nice that whenever I turn it on it goes right back to those.

Seemed to have Worked OK But BROKE Before I Could Use It

Tried it in my home just to see if it worked and it seemed to be ok. Took it with me on a shoot trip and before I could get it out in the field a wire disconnected from the power connector corner and all I can get now is a mat of odd blinking lights. Terrible Quality.

It does create light.

This light does ok and is lightweight and flexible. but you or anyone who lays hands on it won't be confused why it was so cheap. To me the biggest benefit of a small, flexible light like this is that is portable, this doesn't take up a lot of space, but it also doesn't seem like it will take to be handled much. If you want a small light that you can install somewhere and leave it alone, this is great. but if you are comparing it to a light under the sink or in a closet then this is pretty expensive. It is bright.

question

Can Bescomr FM-256 biColor LED be connected in series...with additional lights?
Asked by: ignacio d.
What you could do is use the Matthews Mini Baby Double Header B&H # MA429610 and connect each frame to the studs using a Manfrotto 014-14 Rapid Adapter - 5/8" Stud to 1/4-20" Thread B&H # MA01414, so they are side by side. https://bhpho.to/2GqelmT https://bhpho.to/2tmhHz2

question

Can this run off batteries?
Asked by: jack
I have two Bescor FM-256 LED Lght mats. There is a battery designed to power two units but I have not purchased the battery yet. I have used the two LED units with AC power in my home and have been pleased with the convenience and quality of the light. Low cost and no frills. The availability of the battery was a reason I purchased these units.
