I feel the need to give you a tour of my garage. I have a 'friend' that gifts us random sets of lights, sink fixtures, paint, appliances, etc every month. I can't keep up.
How are the Neewer lights? I've been eyeing up the Viltrox panels along with cheap locline (or possible an Aliexpress Special mag base + friction arm) to make Adam Savage's flexi workshop light thing.
Sounds like an excuse for the Iron Pumpkin next
I really like them, been using mine for about a year and a half now and they're really solid. I was very surprised by the build quality actually, they have strong metal frames and all the clamping handles are metal too, they're nice and bright and easy to adjust in terms of colour temperature and intensity. I haven't tried the batteries out yet but a friend of mine got a set also and he says they last for quite a while. I'm actually struggling to find any real downsides to them, I guess if I were to be super picky the plastic diffuser on the front slides out a bit inconsistently, which can be annoying if moving them around as sometimes it'll just fall out. They have a more expensive set that also has barn doors, not sure if those can fit these or not, never really tried.
