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.

Light tent cube Photo Softbox Unboxing 20 inch 50 cm

In this video, I unbox a light tent I bought from a Chinese company on E-Bay. At the end I show examples of a product picture before and after using the light tent to diffuse my YN-560 II flash.

After I have more experience with it, I will do a demonstration and review of it. But basically you can use it to diffuse light coming from any light source: flash, continual light, sun, regular light bulbs, etc. I would be careful with work lights because of the heat though.

With the 4 coloured backgrounds, you can quickly change the background of your product photography, or you can quickly edit it out of your photo. I would have preferred a green screen colour to make it disappear, but you could easily buy or create one yourself.
