$15 LED Backlight

It's been a while since I've posted something here, but I was looking for a simple reading light when I found a great little LED backlight for $15. I played around with it and decided to make a video.


I hope you enjoy it.

Re: $15 LED Backlight

Thanks Scott. Always looking for lightweight and portable lighting solutions. What is the approximate color temp. of this light? Is it dim-able?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: $15 LED Backlight

I'd guess that it 5600K Daylight or very close to it.

I don't think it's dimmable. It's very basic. I usually just use it for interviews with a single subject. I have used it as an accent light too.

I wish it were battery powered, but for $15 what do expect.
