    Litepanels LP Micro Reviews

    Micro LED On-Camera Light is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 192.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy! In constant use. I shoot mainstream science oriented documentaries with an HDX-900. In the world of low light, this little light becomes a major player. - as a motivated light for person working at a computer screen. - in a car at night. - on the street mixed with street lights. People say its flimsy, but I call it super lite weight, and so it is easy to rig with G-tape. Try it with those jointed Gorilla Pods. Perfect match! It is just a handy squeak of light when you need it. We just call it the squeak light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works better than expected! I use this an on on camera light, and also as a hair light, side fill, accent light or anything else I might need. Works very well with the new DSLRs when shooting video and the daylight color looks good (even if it's not 100% 5600k). The included filters work well too. Use the higher end batteries (see the instructions... I'm not here to plug a battery!) and you'll run all day long on one set! It's light, but not flimsy... and the dimmer knob seems like it will hold up fairly well. I didn't order the DV camera battery back for it, but that may be my next purchase. Litepanels should make a small zipper pouch for this thing, though. Who want's their new baby light to get beaten up? Love this light!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice little light This is a nice compact light that adds some highlights to a subjects face. The weight is excellent and can be added on your camera without even noticing a weight change. The locking mechanism to hold the light at the proper angle does not tighten as much as I would like. The throw is very short (any subject over 5 feet or so gets nothing) and the beam is a bit narrow (sometimes visible within safe with subjects that are closer than a couple feet) Over all, a good device and a wise choice for specific needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lights on the go 2 of these LED lights provide incredible light. They are so small I can pack them easily along with tons of other equipment in a carry-on when I fly overseas. I do not use them on camera, but on two small Gorillapods. They come with a small set of filters, which is nice, but be warned, there is no carrying case or bag--which is strange and unnerving considering the price of each. Be sure to find some way to pad and carry these, as they are very fragile. But if you can find a safe way to transport them, they are worth the money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but overpriced Bought this as an intended upgrade from my Sony HVL-20DW2. It is a larger light and has longer useful battery life (4 hours with 4 fresh AA's vs. 2 hours with Sony NFP960 in the Sony light). It doesn't get hot like the Sony light. The gel holder is also a great addition, and vital due to the light's daylight color temp and its primary usefulness being indoors. Being dimmable and adjustable for angle also help its case. Cast light is relatively even and soft, albeit with the charateristic barred-shadow look of LED light banks. Unfortunately, maximum light throw is only comparable to the Sony light's 10W setting, often further hampered by the necessity of gelling the light indoors; with such short throw, the need of the dimming feature become questionable. After three uses, the mount has already begun to degrade and tilt at the slightest provocation, necessitating a fix with grip tape. The tilt adjusting knob is also difficult to manipulate while on most cameras, since it is on the same side as the mic holder. The gel holder interferes with the dimmer switch when raised, or drops down and blocks the top of the light, so it's best to remove completely when not needed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from CUTE LIGHT, BUT NOT FOR A PRO... Nice size but has an anemic output, definitely a Chinese made light of minimal quality, but worse is the color temperature... it's not right. Terrible magenta cast. My Chief Photog won't let me use it because of the color temp problem. Extra problem the dimmer knob broke off on it and the mounting shoe looks like it will break off in the field. Can't recommend it, sorry.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but could be better for the $$ This adjustable LED is a great addition to a lighting kit. I've used the Micro on three separate shoots recently, and found that it worked very well - especially because of the ability to quickly flip diffusion or cc filters in front of, or off of, the light. That said, one of my minor complaints is the lightweight (almost too lightweight) plastic construction of the case: I found the battery compartment cover bulges when cells are in place and the cover's closed. Also, the flip up filter holder is a bit too flimsy as well. Despite these minor grumblings, the LPMicro works well in a variety of situations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product room for improvement really like my lp micro & use it on a daily basis the fact that it runs on aa batts is great in my mind,its lovely for putting into those little places you just cant get a light great in cars & the dimming is a lovely feature. there's a few bits about it that bug me firstly : its solely made of plastic so dont see it lasting a life time but for that price compared to other on board lights its a steel. would have been great if it could pan it has a nice tilt on it but a pan would be great for out rigging it from the camera. the little flip up filter holder only stays up when its wedged on the dimmer knob making the dimming function tricky and the filters slide out

    Yes - this on-camera light will slide right into the hot accessory shoe of the Canon EOS 500D (T1i).

    Will this light fits into my Canon 5D Mark iii?
    Asked by: Ricardo C.
    I use the Canon XF105 and the light fits into the hotshoe plate, so it should work.

    how do i open the back battery cover? (I've already tried pushing the pushy bit)
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It's hard, no question. And I was afraid I'd break the battery cover. When you look at the back, to the left of the word MICRO, directly to the left of the word WEEE, there is a tall, long, slender rounded piece. You have to push the furthermost edge of it in (in the direction of the word WEEE) and lift up on it at the same time. If you position it to push with your thumb while your fingers are holding the right side of the device, you can use your left hand to help lift the battery cover from that end. Good luck.
