Thanks for the reply. I am looking for a light stick to light paint with. This one seems to be built well and has the barn doors to minimize spill. The price sure beats Wescott's Ice Light! I've looked at other brands that are much cheaper but you do get what you pay for to an extent. I think Godox makes a good product overall and the LC500 is priced reasonably.
I was just surprised to see this product, usually we see these things posted when Godox comes out with new stuff, through flashhavoc and other sites. Looks interesting for sure, but I hadn't even heard of this. I see all their strobe news though. This Godox light "saber" must have flown under the radar.
Based on this from Amazon, I suspect it won't be available for almost another 2 weeks.
Get it as soon as July 23 - 31 if you choose Expedited Shipping at checkout.
If you need something compact and also cordless (using a camcorder style battery, extra item) and less expensive, definitely consider the Neewer though. It is very small, light and stores away easily. Built very well, and it comes with a diffuser panel too. I love how you can dial in any color you want vs being stuck with just 2 colors on the Godox.
