Full Review of the Switronix TorchLED Bolt LED Video Light (with Video)

November, 2012 -- When it comes to lighting nothing excites me more than LED - from light panels, to flashlights, bulbs for the home, and all the possibilities that LED technology make possible. Over the past couple of years LED light panels have become the defacto standard in the video industry and are now used on set on most major networks for news, interviews, on-location, and even television shows. Not only are LED lights being used by network television, they are also being used everyday by filmmakers, videographers, and photographers thanks to their compact & light footprint, ruggedness compared to halogens or fluorescents, low power consumption, and virtually zero heat output.

Most prosumer LED panels have rather weak light output. The small on-camera LED lights are blinding to look at head on, but because these lights don't offer much 'throw' they are only effective if positioned 2-3 ft from your subject.  Read my review to find out how the TorchLED performed.  The review also includes a video overview and review with some side-by-side comparisons at the end of the video.
