Simpex 320 Dual LED video light -Review
From quite some time more makers have started making reasonable price LED lights for video preparations. With regards to LED lights, everything beneath 5000 is viewed as “Cheap” for one light. One of the initially LED lights we purchased was from Digipro/Digitek 6 LED or 10 LED. However the cost of the light was not precisely low. 3500-5000 for a little on-camera video light is too much particularly when you don’t use it regularly.
The Simpex LED Video Light is a decent item however the construct quality isn’t the best. At the point when at full power the LEDs illuminate a subject extremely well, But if you have more then one subject more quantity of light is recommended. The cost is modest as they are supplied with low power battery in the container. My suggestion would be to buy a extra rechargeable battery or high power like 6600Mah.
Above shown Simpex 320 LED light contain 320 Daylight adjusted LED lights. As the LEDs are all sunshine adjusted you won’t need to stress over a distinction in skin colouration or whatever other subject.All LEDs are evenly spaced on the front of the video light and a reflective silver surface lies at the base of the lights to help further project stray and reflected light.
Like any other Digitek LED or Simpex LED This 320 LED also has two Dimmer dial that works as the on/off switch. The dial is a smooth operation and at its lowest point the light projected is still quite bright.
Two major highlight of this Simpex 320 LED is it comes with barn door which gives you more control over light fall off and dual color LED White/Orange.
Why two color tone ? Because with other LED light like digitek or neewer or digipro when you need warm light you put a orange filter which give you very hard orange but with this simpex 320 and simpex 216 dual color LED light you can mix it with white light and achieve desired color tone.
The battery compartment is at the back of the Simpex 320 LED you can either use a lithium battery or direct AC adopter for continuos no interruption light.
Battery indicator is also situated on the back left of the light . Just hold down the button to TEST the LED, lights will indicate the battery life, somewhat or completely charged.
In conclusion the Simpex LED 320 also has lockable hot shoe connector and tripod mount. You can either mount it on DSLR or on tripod and light stand.
By and large the Simpex 320 LED video light is a decent item one of the main down size is it do not comes with remote which most of the LED lights are providing now a days.
The cost is cheap compare to other brand like digitek or neewer and YN Simpex also importing there LED from China but I must say they have good quality control and after sales support.The only drawback I find with this LED is they comes with 2200MAh batteries only which last for 45n to 1Hr on mid power, My suggestion would be to buy a second high power rechargeable battery. In summing up I would suggest this item for professional use as the nature of light created is ideal for all shooting conditions including vlogs, Google+ Hangouts, generation recordings and podcasts or youtube video making,interview.
