If you’re not up to speed, there’s a set of 96 LED lights on the market that didn’t please many users.

24Jul 96 LED Video Lights + Flash


Tweet

Well, it appears that the ‘Z96 Upgrade’ LED video light might not be an actual upgrade. It’s just another variation of the product. It also seems that the Z96 form factor is such a popular light, there’s even another version that doubles as an external flash called Z-Flash. The flash feature is something Litepanels tried [...]

18Jul A Z96 Clone or Z96 Upgrade? W96 LED Light


Tweet

Thanks to a tip from Dave here’s something of interest. Still all new to me, but apparently it’s advertising as an ‘upgrade’ to the uber popular Z96 LED Video light.

12Jul 12V DC Battery with 5V USB Port


Tweet

A while back I posted about some available 12V DC batteries you can use from Ryobi. They’ve been working great and many people have adapted them on Timelapse rigs and motion controlled sliders. Here’s another option. Now I’m fairly weary about posting no name battery packs, so i’ve been testing these for a few weeks [...]

F&V. Heard the name before? Probably something you don’t think about, but this is the same company that makes the very popular Z96 LED Video light. Looks like they now have a 7″ 800 x 480 LCD monitor to add to their lineup of DSLR related gear, and calling it the ‘F1′. The 800×480 resolution [...]

23Feb Z96 Powered from RC Batteries


Tweet

Remember the batteries I threw together for my Flying Ring Light? Turns out the Z96 uses the same connector as my 352 LED Ring Light. I think i’ll stop by Radio Shack to get an exact part number and size on the fitting that’s being used so that other people can make a DIY battery [...]

06Feb Z96 LED Flicker Test with Sony Battery


Tweet

Some people have commented about flickering from a Z96 LED video light. This has to do with battery voltage, especially when the batteries run low. I’ve had plenty of success with my Eneloops and haven’t noticed any flickering until they drain out. This time YouTube member Luca throws together a battery and flicker test with [...]

Well i’m sold on the Transcend 400x cards I just received last week. I purchased (4) 32GB cards with next day air because I knew I would need the space. I was only supposed to test these out, but this was a lifesaver, as I ran super low on available [...]
