    I must admit that "looking professional" was NOT on the list of criteria we had set out to meet when we designed our lights.

    I appreciate the comment though; it's all good feedback....and it prompted me to go outside on a crappy day, and shoot a little clip for ya. (Hey, I never miss a good opportunity to whip out the DVX! ;-)

    Here's a 2MB, 1 minute, H264 mov file, that may put to rest your "concerns" about our unit being "cheap". Try that with your other lights...on second thought, maybe NOT!

    I got my light today. First off the guys at VidLED great, very helpful and made sure I had light in hand for my shoot tomorrow. The light exceeded my expectations. I often use a litepanel and this is very comparable. It may not look as professional, but the results are impressive. I am very happy with it.

    I thought I was the only one who did that with my VIDLED! I feel better now.

    Once a day is good enough, preferably before meals.

It's probably been the most versitile light in my kit since summer when I got it. I want to pick up a two light kit one spot and another flood.
    What kit are you talking about please?

    What an awesome clip... Now that is professional. I'll be buying one of the vidlights after a few credit cards are paid off..


    The guys seem really nice and I can't see a reason to pay 3x the price for the litepanel... and doesn't look "My" kind of homemade... I'd have duck tape, glue and all kinds of mis-behaving hardware...


    Did you put that clip up on your site? Funny and a great demo....

    Holy cats that's a tough little bugger! I gave a lot of thought to picking up one of these lights not too long ago, but since they were not available at the time I picked up the Litepanels flood instead. I also grabbed a belt battery and 4pin XLR power adapter to run it. It runs forever.

    Originally I bought the spot thinking it would be more efficient (brighter) but what I noticed was some chroma shift in the beam it cast (more to the point, a blueish ring around the edge of the beam). With major diffusion it evened out, but the flood seemed to be the better option to avoid the color temperature issues you get with LED lights.

    This is Tom from VariZoom. I wanted to get a couple of announcements out before we head to NAB. We have a new LED light system for the HVX and DVX. It is an incredibly bright light that also has a dimmer control.

    This is a new product we will introduce at NAB and begin sales in mid May.

    This is a great little 4-LED light that allows you to use your extra HVX or DVX batteries to power. The battery mount clamps right on to the top handle of your HVX / DVX camera. We will also have units available for Sony and Canon as well.

    Those visiting NAB please come by try it out. You will be amazed with the performance and the price.

    Tom

    The new LS-2010 P camera light combines 4 advanced LEDs with professional optic technology design.

The LS-2010 can last in excess of 100,000 hours and requires no spare filament bulbs.

    Very interested!! What will the price point be? Cheaper then a Litepanel, I hope. I wanted to get a Litepanel DV before their April rebate is over...but I'll hold out for this if it's comparitively priced.

    Also, where is the diffuser - built in or snap-on?
