As a professional photographer my gear list keeps growing and growing, so when I find tools that help lighten the load I get pretty excited. In 2013 I began teaching advanced night-sky time-lapse photography workshops under the dark skies of Moab, UT. One of the challenges I faced was how to light our foregrounds so that each workshop participant would be positioned properly to benefit from the effects of the light. While I brought three video lights of varying sizes to the workshop I soon discovered that everyone would benefit from having access to their own light. Plus, the video lights I already owned were large and way too bright, and each one needed a Sony NPF-550 style battery, which increased the weight even further. I did have a few that were dimmable, but at their lowest settings they tended to flicker which made them unreliable for timelapse work.
After weeks of searching google and Amazon I came across the OxyLED Q6 Rechargeable LED Light. With a price under $20, 4 intensity modes (2%, 50%, 75%, 100%) , and a built-in rechargeable battery that is claimed to last 72 hours at the lowest setting I had to give this light a try. When the light arrived a few days later I quickly began testing it. The first test I did was to see how long the light would last at its lowest brightness setting. After 20 hours I finally turned it off. All I really wanted to be sure of was that the light would last a complete night of shooting. At 20 hours I was thrilled.
Read more about my experience with these inexpensive lights.
