I checked their spec. At 3feet it is measured at 1321 lux. That is at it's default 5600K color temperature and before diffusion filter is applied. 5600K is useless in indoor shooting as objects will become blue. Read here in my blog Color Temperature | L.A. Color Blog. Lower the color temperature and then apply the diffuse filter will make the light even less bright.

Compared to the Comer 1800 LED light, it is 1800 lux at 1 meter (about 3 feet) already in 4500K color temperature and diffused. It throws a wide spread without casting a soft circular spots in the scene. It makes the video looks like home-made video when panning with a circular spots on.

Hey guys, I'm willing to get one or two of these lights and I just saw, they updated the specs of the MicroBeam 128.

The light is now supposed to be brighter as the lux value improved from 686 to 746 lux at 3 feet distance (and so on...).

I couldn't find any information regarding that upgrade. So I'm either blind or they didn't bother filling us in on it. Any clues?

Cheers from Germany
