Good light for work at home.

Good light, only 2 downsides - 1. No brightness control 2. Need to add diffusion. Simple and easy, for zoom meetings, podcasts, small product photography.

So incredible for travel!

This little light packs a punch and is great for travel...nothing like a backpack lighting kit with 2 or 3 of these!!!

I spoke to a rep about this product before I ordered it and he ASSURED me that they were adjustable for their brightness. I received them and it’s either on or off. They are great lights but I would have rather Ed so Etching with adjustable brightness. I did t return them because I needed them right away. This was also the fIRST time I ever called B&H and felt rushed to end the conversation.

I got this for super cheap on special - an impulse buy. The stand is difficult to work with, and the light doesn't have any dimmer (and of course must be plugged in). But it's a nice bright light and I expect I'll find some good use for it. I might mount it on the wall above my desk and use it as a desk lamp.

Like it for what I use it for

I bought this on a flash deal at a very heavy discount. At the price it makes a very nice tabletop work like. Very bright and diffuse. Have not tried it for photography so cannot comment on that use.

As much as you can expect for the low cost

Let's face it, what can you expect for a low cost light. Its what I expected-cheap, good enough, light weight, even though it is a bit flimsy. Just a nice little toy when you don't need professional gear. Made a great stocking stuffer for friends who like to dabble in photography.

Great kit

I got this light for environmental portraits. It works great and the light is large and soft. I also appreciate the large catch light it gives to the subjects eyes.

Is the height dimension given for this item (8.1" H) just for the panel, alone, or does it include the additional height of the stand? If the measurement is just for the panel, how much higher does the stand raise it? If all the dimensions given are for both the panel and the stand, together, what are the measurements of just the panel, alone? Thank you.
