Yong Nuo YN 160 LED Video Light

In this video, I do a review of the Yongnuo YN 160 Pro LED Video Light. I got the model with the reflective barndoors, which allow to sculpt the light better.

I will be posting another video shortly to demonstrate the intensity of the light, but so far I am quite amazed. Just as any other light, though, it would probably work better if I had some sort of diffuser.

In this video, I do a demonstration of the Yongnuo YN 160 Pro LED Video Light.

With the T2i at 720p60, I usually set my camera at ISO 800 and 1/60sec shutter speed. With a 500W work light reflecting off the wall, I can use an aperture of around f/2.0 to f/2.4.

Using the YN 160 directly gives much more brightness, but it does blow off the highlights on some spots of the skin, so I would probably need some sort of diffuser.
