$7 Video LED Light?

Today I see if this small $7 LED light was worth the purchase and we put it to work in the studio!

All things considered this isn’t a bad light for the money! Great little budget light for small kicker, backgrounds and rim/hair uses.

Amazing!! Just ordered a couple. I think the practicality and compactness make these very useful. So many uses for these… I just love little items like these for run and gun style filmmaking. Can fit a complete professional video kit (2x 4K compact cameras, 2 lav mic systems and small light kit) in my little man purse!! Love your videos Caleb, thanks 🙂

Definitely worth showing. Fun light with creative potential. 🙂

With the sticky back, this would be perfect for putting on a phone and getting a cool shot of the spillover from the screen

Wrong! you could light a two person mouse interview just fine with these. Lol. I think they are cool, I could see using these inside of cars or really tiny areas where you just need a little light. Gets me thinking about a USB dimmer, does it exist?

Thanks for sharing. You could go to walmart and spend $1 for one of their headlaps that has about the same output.

wont a $5 led flashlight do a better job as it is focusable with a much narrower beam angle ? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2000LM-Q5-LED-Zoom-Adjustable-Tactical-Rechargeable-USB-Flashlight-Torch-/182460568921

recently i had to rig a car for a TV show with Gopro’s… it had a night shoot and we all know how much it sucks to get some good light in a car ( without having led sheets or some thing) so i used a small led strip with 3x AA bat. but it took me some time to get it right. i can totally see this light work way faster to rig, it next to the GoPro or just tape it to the dash. thanks for the tip going to pick some up !

I think these lights are brilliant, but I’d never use them to light people – even as kickers. When you conduct interviews for documentaries, the talent is often well lit, but the background is dark and lifeless. I’d use these under chairs, behind doors, hidden in pot plants etc to provide accent lights to other wise dull visuals.

No it is fun. But don’t go cheeper than this. And of course this light is useless unless you are making miniature product photography or something.

I feel like this could be great for tabletop reviews of small items place it a foot away or buy a bundle of them and Gel them and what not. Thanks for the review!

Even Cinema 5D covered this light as well. Though, I didn’t see kicker light effect, and I would do away with this light as long as it has green tint.

Would be great for vlogging! Small Velcro pad on top of an RX100 or G7X would keep it in place!

Hey Caleb. Thanks for the info on these little gems. I got mine delivered yesterday. They are charged up and ready to go for those accent moments I might need. I wanted to share a small tidbit that I found as I was setting myself up. The bases of the 3 I got fit perfectly into my 1/4×20 threaded Cold Shoe brackets (like these – http://a.co/eGtJCsY) – Great for universal fit on almost anything. Thanks again for the great tip!

Looks idea for a catchlight / eye light!

You should have reviewed it as an extra light to take photos with your smartphone, like taking a snap of your meal in a dark restaurant, not as a studio equipment.
Still, thanks for the review

Great use for this light: enhance a phone screen practical light when in need face illumination for a dramatic low-key face looking at a phone screen.

Nice Caleb! A dozen of these set up right could make a quick and dirty ring light! 😀

I feel like there must be some way to take advantage of the size for miniature photography, say Lego subjects. If not, the price and portability is really appealing.

I’m on a budget and started filming product shots for fun/learning. A great way to light Lego Star Wars Characters.
