GREAT LIGHT FOR ARTISTIC IMAGES

Slickrick, B&H Photo
26 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought the GL-1 light to use at weddings for some of my portraits. A bit heavy but when you get that shot you could not create with another light it is well worth it. I have my assistant carry it while it's attached to a Black Rapid Sport Strap. I bought an extra battery just in case the first one drains during a wedding.
  • Pros: Long-Lasting, Powerful

Quality Light but Poor Build Quality

  • Excerpt: We use a set of strobes for most of our lighting work, but there are times when timelines don't afford that luxury, which is why we looked at video lights. The market is flooded with LED panels... which can't really zoom or adjust like we need them too. Upon reading reviews on the GL-1, we decided to give it a try. Upon arrival, our first impression was that its big... and cheap feeling. Reviews had mentioned this same thing, but it really doesn't hit until you hold one.
  • Pros: Quality of light
  • Cons: Flimsy, Weak

Holy ... I love this thing!!!

  • Excerpt: I tried to avoid purchasing a $700 flashlight and literally tried a bunch of other products! The white balance is spot on tungsten and the zoom is essential if you want a good throw! We started using these more than our studio lights for Wedding formals! This light with a d4 and a great assistant can do wonders! We bought two more after the first week! Can't believe I'm saying this but totally worth the money!
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable, Friggin Awesome, Good Color Value, Lightweight, Long-Lasting, Powerful

Nice portable light for the event photog

  • Excerpt: Bought this in preparation for wedding photography season. Since I come from a filmmaking background I like to see the light while I photograph and this light works wonders. I was very surprised by the amount of throw that this light has. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this. Would have given this product 5 stars if it were made with less plastic. Also it is a little difficult to disconnect the battery from the light.
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Good Color Value, Long-Lasting, Powerful

Great Idea but really poor construction

BB, B&H Photo
19 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The idea is truly innovative and the light is nice. However, when you hold this item it feels cheap. The plastic structure does not feel sturdy and the plastic controls feel loose and sloppy instead of responsive. You can buy a $[$]"homeowner" grade cordless drill or a $[$] "construction professional" grade cordless drill. I was hoping for the later and in my opinion it is more the former. I hope it stands up to travel and day to day use.
  • Cons: Flimsy

Led lighting that is hand held.

Photo Guy, B&H Photo
18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I will use it for events and weddings. I find the protability and brightness of the light to be very convenient. It is not for constant lighting but to be used in short shooting sessions turning the unit on and off. You have to pay attention to over heating and auto shut off. Mine shut off during my shoot I was not noticing the overheat warning my attention was in shooting.
  • Pros: Durable, Powerful
  • Cons: Runs Hot
