    Polaroid PLLED54 reviews

    LED Video Light Panel is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for close-up work! The plastic is not so bad. The barn doors work but should be reinforced with gaff tape. The output is bright and fairly wide but there is BIG problem. At short distances it displays a dark spot in the middle of the lighted area. I tested it on a white wall @ aprox. 5-7 feet. The spot is about 5-10 inches in diameter - diffused - but still about 3 stops darker - a problem if you a shooting at close range. The dark spot becomes diffused and not so visible at a longer shooting range but that was not good for me. I returned it and got something else as I did not know if this was just a defective unit or a flaw in the design.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst thing I ever bought The light does not tilt, so the light always shines OVER the subject's head when mounted to a camera (Video camera, or DSLR). Barn doors are useless. If the dimmer is too low the lights just flicker. Apart from that, sometimes the light creates a mild flicker affect on camera that you do not see with the naked eye, when the dimmer is set to about mid-range or slightly less. Sometimes you can actually see the LED pattern in the projected light. This is not only useless for professional use, but I can't see it serving any purpose for consumers either. B&H Should actually stop selling this. It's really bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS and WORKS WELL I am a pro concert and event photographer. I use a 7D to capture backstage videos from time to time. The other night, I had to shoot a quick band interview in a low-light setting. This light worked well, lighting their faces and upper bodies well from about 6 feet away. The only drawback I have found is in the mount - it has a dual-adjustment mount that doesn't lock down completely and allows a slight swivel to occur if bumped. It's not significant in that it's still stable enough overall, but I would prefer a solid lock down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely bright light. Pros: Extremely bright, dimming switch, nice price range, good build quality, and stackable. Cons: Without a diffuser it is way too bright for both exposure purposes and for the subject's eyes, issues from dimming to a lower level can cause noticeable dslr video related problems (causes lines to cycle through the screen) however this can be surpassed if you shoot at wider apertures such as 2.8 - 1.4. With all this said. Some have stated the barn doors are flimsy, but I like the ability to remove them with great ease for a very good reason, I needed some sort of a diffuser since the light is so bright I was given the dome diffuser by Gary Fong from a fellow photographer during a wedding reception and it just happened to squeeze perfectly on the frame and diffused the light perfectly. I recommend these lights greatly, but recommend getting the dome diffuser or something of that nature, and DEFINITELY recommend pulling the batteries out when you store it, since the on/off switch is really easy to bump and often gets turned on in my bag causing me to waste a lot of battery life.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Produces flicker This lamp produces flicker waves on my 5D when shooting in NTSC country, on 24 fps. The only shutter speed I can use is 1/60 to avoid it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little Giant that could The night was pitch dark in San Juan del Sur, a popular resort area in Nicaragua's Pacific side. The moon was hiding, just to make my job harder. With a little flash light I attached the light panel and flipped its switch on. Wow! The beach was instantly lit for about 40-50 feet. I used this the whole night for about 3 hours and it still lit up the entire beach. The party was awash in even light and lots of great pictures proved to me how great little product this really is. I'm going to buy 2 more to light up my evening scenes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for that money It's hard to describe my attitude to this lighting. It does it's job, but it has some cons. It shines bright with nice daylight color. First of all, it uses 5 AA batteries. Not 4, but 5. Usually a charger takes only 4 batteries. It doesn't run up to 8 hours. With full-charged 5 AA batteries it runs not more than 1.5-2 hours in smallest dimmer position (i use Duracell batteries with 2650 mAh capacity). It's not fully dimmable. Even in smallest amount, the lighting still stays very bright, and you must use the iris of the camera to regulate the light amount. Dimmer's switch is very long and may broke. Also there's a atrange sound when the lighting is on. In silent places the sound is being recorded. I use it with Sony AX2000E, and when the lighting is mounted on hot shoe, you can't close the LCD monitor, So you should purchase a swivel shoe adapter.
