LedGo 4 x 150 LED photo and Video Lighting Kit review

A post by: SimePPIt’s been a long time since I used LED lights for photography! It was in fact, April 6, 2010. Read about that review, I can confirm that STRONGled technology/STRONG has come a long way! I have a great bit of kit on STRONGProTog/STRONG loan here in Melbourne consisting of four LED panels, 150 LEDs each, lithium batteries, charger, AA battery adapters, four gel packs to colors of your lighting and mounting hardware, too./PPIMG class=” wp-image-65026 alignright” alt=”LGB1504KB” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-LGB1504KB.jpg” width=”350″/PPSTRONGLedGo 4 x 150 LED Photo/Video lighting kit/STRONG/PPI first saw this small kit (which comes in different shapes with different size panels) when working with Jeff and the team of ProTog on the recent digital Show here in Melbourne, I had a few chances to play with it as I worked the booth at the show. I have noticed a huge difference compared to the LED panels that I tried before (and I sound like a Laundry detergent commercial, but …) brighter colors and whiter whites range (5600 k daylight balanced Output)! I could immediately see that these little panels had the ability to put out a decent amount of good stuff! And at the same time it can be controlled. A photo below of something I’m playing with right now, but more on that later, the Sony QX100 …/PPIMG class=”aligncenter size-large wp-image-59832″ alt=”gtvone_sony_qx100_ledgo” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-GTV9991-600×395.jpg” width=”600″ height=”395″/PPSo, I have the kit used for three weeks now, I have used it for macro, portraits, lighting of the padding (in a boardroom on a tree) mixed with natural light and to say I am very impressed with is a little bit massive understatement! It’s not that I the I am getting from the LedGo kit with a conventional flash lighting can’t reach, it is that I can light a scene really fast or even a light hand to a seven year old and say “here, point to the side of your head” without them burning itself or having to use two hands to keep the lights off./PPThe individual panels with battery connected weigh in on 334 grams (0.75 lbs) according to my kitchen scales, so easily within the realm of what can keep a model if you want to take a portrait. You can very quickly and easily gang two of the 150 panels together to give you lots of light for a standard portrait, but remember that you have four panels in the kit, so that you can have two as your main light and two as a hair light or … well, the options are many./PPIMG class=”aligncenter size-large wp-image-64374″ alt=”LedGo_LED_LIGHT_LG1504-KIT-bag_REVIEW” src=”http://www.photo-natural.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/wpid-LG1504-KIT-bag-473×600.jpg” width=”473″ height=”600″/PPIf you are not confident with your ‘ mastering light ‘ is something that can make you attractive the “forgiveness factor”. It is very easy to grabbing a STRONGLedGo/STRONG -panel, pop on a stand, or as I have so often, a STRONGNastyClamp/STRONG, and turn it on and flick my camera in the mode “live View”-What You See is What You Get
