Heya folks,

I'm sure you may have seen the generic "126 LED" video lights floating around on ebay. I'm fairly sure they are from the same manufacturer, the boxes look largely identical.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about.

I'm thinking of picking up a couple of them and I'm interested in how much light they actually put out in camera terms.

What are your experiences with these lights, good/bad/ugly? And rougly what kind of exposure values (f-stop, shutter, ISO) are you getting with them?

that doesnt look very big and i have doubts that it would be useful unless it was fairly close to your subject. i am very curious as to how effective it is. i have an open mind about something like that but it just for some reason seems extremely useless on a video set. not sure what your intended use would be. but for that price i might pick one up out of curiosity if all else fails i can use it as a desk lamp or something maybe lol

would like to find it on a site that i can trust more, not familiar with that site

I agree, it won't do much on a set but is fine for family video's or a run and gun outfit.

Most of them I tried are too blue so you have to be familier with the WB for it. Other settings depend on what else is going on (except shutter which should stay static, lights or no lights).
