Great for Event Videographers

MVP, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I really like this light despite the minus star. I'm not sure why but the people who made this light intended it for wedding photographers.. which is fine but its really not. This light should be marketed to wedding and event Cinematographers.
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable, Good Color Value, Powerful
  • Cons: Battery, Heavy, Not Color Changeable

Bulky and needs an assistant

  • Excerpt: I saw this product at the WPPI and found it to be really interesting and portable for constant lighting so I decided to buy it. The main use would be for side or backlight setup. The LED K value is accurate and it accepts 82mm filters with some other attachments you can buy (i.e. barn doors).
  • Pros: Good Color Value, Powerful
  • Cons: Flimsy

The GL-1 Rocks

17 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I have had SOOO many video lights over the years and this one far above all the rest. It's powerful and it's spread can light a huge scene. I photograph a lot of weddings, and most of my video lights could only light a bride and groom properly. The GL - 1 can light and entire wedding party.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Color Value, Lightweight, Long-Lasting, Powerful

Good, but can be better.

  • Excerpt: I had bought this for use at weddings. Flash is great, but sometimes, seeing the light right away and adjusting the power to match the ambient light is definitely quicker. This is when the GL-1 comes in.

STILL NOT SURE

  • Excerpt: Bought this reallllly expensive flash light for weddings. Firstly, if it's not dawn or dusk, don't bother using out doors, just not strong enough. The daylight balance filter steals quite a bit of output power as well.
  • Pros: Great Idea Versatile, Versatile
  • Cons: Flimsy, Weak

  • Excerpt: The battery will not come out and it cannot be charged inside the unit. My husband has been a welder for over 20yr but he couldn't remove it even after using clamps, pliers and unscrewing half of it. I tried it once before it went dead and became useless.
  • Cons: Weak

GREAT LIGHT FOR ARTISTIC IMAGES

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.
  • Pros: Long-Lasting, Powerful

Quality Light but Poor Build Quality

12 June 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Quality of light
  • Cons: Flimsy, Weak
