LED lights have been on the photography scene for quite some time now. And videographers have been using constant LED lights as video lights for quite a while as well. Recently, companies have been developing LED flashes as an alternative to the traditional strobes that have dominated the market for years. To see if LED flashes are any good for the job, photographer Ike takes a Godox FV150 for a spin with some beauty photography:
One feature in this LED flash that you can’t find in the traditional strobes is how you can use it both as a constant light source and a flash as well. This means one less piece of gear to carry around if you plan to do both video and photo work. If portability is important to you, you’ll want to consider LED flash.
“If you want a little bit of both worlds, this might be the light for you.”
And Godox hasn’t compromised with the quality either. A CRI rating of 96 means that it’s highly color accurate. The quirks that Ike outlines are in regards to the weight of the unit, and how the output may not be suited for everyone. In his case, you can see that the flash takes a while to recycle while it’s at the maximum power setting.
Do you use LED flash for your work? If you want to share any experience with LED flash, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments. We’d love to hear what you think.
