    Small constant lighting

    I'm interested in a portable constant LED for tabletop work and extra light for portraits on the hoof.....I've seen the Manfrotto Lumimuse and Lumi Cube units.....but has anyone had any experience or have insights to this approach?

    I'm thinking this would be a better set up than using the pop up flash in certain circumstances as position can be varied and a constant light enables the modelling effects to be assessed better.

    Small constant lighting

    Sorry Brian I cant help. But I did notice an article in the latest issue of the EOS magazine where the photographer had used the Manfrotto LED light. Id not come across them before. It looks to be a nice little light though, with one version with Bluetooth connectivity that can be controlled via an iPhone App that allows a variable output rather than the 25-50-75-100% switchable output options on the device.
    Thanks for posting this as I was about to post a similar request

        I found a video review Brian which described the Manfrotto device very well:-

          You could always have a look at the Yongnuo versions too - like the YN300 Air panel (about 25), small enough to fit in the hot shoe. They are also more powerful than the manfrotto versions. I use 2 YN600 panels (older versions), but they do the job at a reasonable price.
