It also seems to have an INTENSE amount of output based on caleb's review.


    Would you guys think this would make a suitable key light? This would be my first major light purchase. The only other lights I have are these dracast ones: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._bi_color.html
    This makes a great Key light, that’s what I have been using for. Also they covered the leds with a rubbery material which helps to keep it from getting those ugly LED shadows when you are not using the soft box. I also have a couple of bright casts which I like but this blows them out of the water.

    I just finished a review of the LC-160 and it's a very nice bright soft source. Will post next week on Newsshooter.com

    3- He also was concerned that the monofilament that supported hanging the control would break and there was no easy way to fix it.

    What do you think?
    In my opinion itís very solid. It does take a few moments to put it together but itís easier than changing kino tubes. I would call or email and ask Aaron what their policy is on warrentee. They are great about making sure their products are supported. I canít imagine any of those issues happening any time soon. The hanger for the ballast is pretty thick.

    I plan to put this up on a few other pages but I’ve been waiting for Intellytech to finish updating their website so ppl aren’t thrown off by the whole new look. The official 30 days will start then. I’m definitely hoping we do better than 30 units so feel free to share.

    (update) The purchase link has been added and the 30 days starts today. The purchase page has a unit tally and countdown clock.

    They are pretty good about taking care of the customers. I had an issue with my and they sent me an prepaid rma. The light does have a lot of parts to deal with but I have found a couple of workflows to speed up the process. I can keep the soft box together and folded up. The arm that holds the light is a little awkward to keep together, but it depends how much room I have left in my pelican case. If you can keep some parts already assembled, then it wont take too much time to set up.
    The light is versatile. I had draped a silk around it (without the soft box) and made a lantern type light with it.
