It might look like a Lightsaber (not really), but it certainly is a great LED light with many uses for Still and Motion Photography. I take a look at PERGEAR MTL-900 PRO and its functions on the video below:
I like how the light uses LED bulbs only on one side, enabling one to feather and direct the output. I also think that being able to remotely control the output can be useful, although as this uses infrared I found it to be difficult to use, particularly if the light is obstructed or the environment is generally well lit (outdoors for example). The digital intensity control works well, and enables gradual enough adjustments, although it would have been even better if the LED bank could be controlled by rows or columns, which would obviously allow for even more gradual adjustments, and control of direction.
If you have ever used the Icelight before (especially the first version), you will appreciate the ability to use exchangeable batteries on the MTL-900 PRO. Not only can you charge one battery while using the other (two batteries and one charger are included), but you can also power the light with the included AC-adapter, giving you even more ways to continuously use it almost anywhere.
For less than $150, this is an amazingly versatile tool that will help you to fill-in shadows, add effects, mimic practical light, and even serve as a key light. You can order yours directly from www.linkdelight.com
