I have been super impressed with this LED panel. Here are some of my thoughts:

  • Daylight Balanced – If you have Tungsten (3200K) lights you will need to convert them to daylight or visa-versa.
  • Small – These will be awesome for traveling.
  • Dimmer – Great feature for getting the luminance perfect.
  • Battery – If you can get the battery version I would.
  • Light Power – I have the 600 version, seems a wee bit weak for anything other than 1 person interviews etc. You might want to consider getting a 900 or 1200.
Here is the breakdown of the different Models:

The ePhoto 600 is the Smallest size panel in the series. I found it makes for a great 1 subject light or background light to support larger lights.

  • 5400K LED color temperature, with 3 gels
  • Size: 12″ x 12″ x 2″ Weights: 5lbs

The ePhoto 900 is the second highest powered LED in the light series. I found this to be the best model to by first if you are getting started with LED lights.
  • 1200 LED, 24V DC power, Voltage: 110V-230V
  • 5400K LED color temperature, with 3 gels

The ePhoto 1200 is the most powerful of the LED series and makes for a great indoor key light or outdoor fill.
  • 1200 LED, 24V DC power, Voltage: 110V-230V

  • Light intensity: 1m :9500 lux, 2m :3300 lux 3m :1600 lux
