I haven't tried the light but the wording on the web page tells you that it's an 'interview' light designed for closeups, isn't very powerful and doesn't have much spread. It may be fine if you don't expect too much from it, but as with all these new LED lights, I always feel it's worth doing an A/B test alongside the long-standing Sony 20-DW2.

I'm pleased to see one of its bullet points is 'HD fortmat' What?
But a good point for me (being a Sony man) is that it takes NP-F batteries. If you're not Sony equipped, the AA battery is probably a better idea.

There's a huge amount of such panel lights about right now, but there's still no substitute for trying before buying.

Of course there is a substitute for trying before you buy. Other people buying the same thing and posting their experiences on youtube. j/k

But this one looks impressive. At $64 US doesn´t seem like a bank breaker.

YouTube - Pro 126-led videolight from Ebay

It takes 5 different battery types, and reading a couple reviews on the net, It seems like a good investment.

Cheers

Alex

Import HK/China LED light, like many other "quality" items available at the world's biggest flea market....

And there's a lot here in China that never seem to make it out beyond the border. We see more and more of these small LED camera lights all the time.

Interesting. How do they perform though? Are they LED or Bulb? It'll be very nice if we can line them up and test compare them one to another. Of course that's almost impossible.

I did some on-camera lights comparison videos before. It compares 2 Canon lights, LP Micro, SWIT S2010 and the Comer lights

I bought one Pro-126LED and it produces quite good lighting. For the price it's hard to beat them. There is a brightness adjustment as well on this unit.
