Friend of mine told me about this:
http://www.rosco.com/u​s/video/litepad_ho.asp (external link)

A search on POTN turned up not much ("rosco litepad").

What's the word on these things? Anyone use them?

Nobody? The bigger ones look like they might be good continuous lighting for portraits etc.

Might even be good for macro, or product/food photography.

Unless I'm missing something they look like other low power continuous lighting that would require long shutter speeds, wide apertures and/or high ISO. Regardless of how good they are I believe you're still much better off with strobes that have modeling lights.

With some strobes, the modeling lights are powerful enough to give you the same light you'd get from those Litepads and in that case you've got lights doing double duty, as strobes or continuous.
