Those are fantastic results! I'm sold!!! Should get a check in Tuesday, I'll be in touch Taky!

I'm mortified by the performance of my LitePanels in comparison:( Dang!!!

Thanks for the shootout, much appreciated...especially the medium room performance. I may be able to leave some weight at home with these guys...

I checked your is the weight on an HVX200 or EX-1? Are these comparable to the LitePanels? I'm going to pick up one of your Light/Video sound brackets as well...interested in mounting the 900 or 1800 and a small 5-7" monitor OR a Zoom H4n. Is this too much weight? Are these lights enough on their own on the smaller cameras or with a decent set of sticks, can I get away with this?

Sorry...somehow missed the weight specs on the light, but I'm sold! I'll be in touch Tuesday or Wednesday:)

Happy New Year, Thanks for the head's up!

Hi Jeremy, I just measured the lights without battery. Comer 1800 weighted 15.4oz and Comer 900 is 9.5oz. Hope that helps.

The CM-LBPS1800 came in and I was frankly blown away by the output of this light. Using my HD200 which is not great in low light anyway the images were fine either with the diffuser on or without for indoor use and with tungsten. I am able to power it via the included power tap cable from the AB mount and cormer 160watt battery, I should also be able to power a DTE hard drive and have ordered the Ab splitter. Overall this is a great light to have for run and gun shooting for use with a mix of studio lights.

Here is the link to the light:
