Useful and functional by itself, the Viola² shines brightest when used in conjunction with the free mobile device app, the Conductor, which allows you to individually control or link together multiple units. With the app, you can adjust the output of the light to match output, CCT, color, saturation, filters, and effects. The app also allows you to sample the color and brightness from a video image, such as a campfire, on your mobile device and have that sample control the brightness and color output of the light. The fixture powers from 7 to 15 VDC via a 2.1mm power port or by the included battery. Mounting is via the built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole.

Luxli Viola M2 RGB LED Light Reviews
Fantastic, versatile light panel
I bought the Luxli Viola2 based upon recommendations from a number of professional landscape photographers that I know and respect. It is really well designed and built; you don't feel that this is a flimsy or junky piece of equipment. The app allows you to fully control the panel by bluetooth so you can fine tune the intensity and color balance from your camera. You can use various sizes of Sony style camcorder batteries so you can tune the battery life versus battery weight/size to your needs. The included charger was flimsy and defective but Luxli quickly replaced it with a more rugged charger. This is a quality piece of gear that should last a long time.
Bright lights. Very versitile.
I am using one of these lights as an on-camera light, and three of these lights as party lights at my house. These lights are awesome, and the app is easy to use.
Can't wait to go light painting
I've only played around with this a little, but its a beautiful device. Comes with a Li-ion battery (same as comes in many Sony camcorders) and a mini charger. The controls and Android app are cool, and I can't wait to take this out for a late night light painting shoot. I'll update the review with some pics once I do.
Versatile and powerful
I needed some lighting for the rare occasion to do interior photography where flash isn't accepted. I mostly do nature photography and took this with me camping and it was awesome! Shockingly powerful and even fun ! It has some programs I didn't expect in addition to all the color/light options you would expect.
The light kit exdudes quality, and not just light. I purchased two of these kits. I plan to mount the lights on RRS table tripods for closeup work.
App could be better
Great light. Changes color & color temperature, which is very nice. The app (Android) is clunky and buggy.
Beautiful piece of equipment
The Luxli Viola2 is beautifully designed and built. The unit is sold with a battery, battery charger, USB cable for charging and updating firmware and a hot shoe mini ball head. The necessary wall charger is not provided and the manual does not make it clear what the requirements are for that charger, nor say anything about the use of the included charger. My included charger was defective out of the box and is being replaced by the manufacturer at no cost (the customer support was great). For this cost I would have expected a higher quality charger that is consistent with the quality of the light. Nevertheless, this is a super light that I expect to get a lot of use out of. The app controls the light by bluetooth (on/off, color temperature, intensity, etc.) so that you can set it in position and then run it remotely as you need it.
In addition to the Fiddle, I now have three Viola-2 lights. They're fabulous. I purchase them when they're on sale. I will do the same with the Cello-2.
