    Mini led lights?

    I've found both of these products very cool and with a lot of potential for creativity at a very low price, but none of them are available right now.

    Does anyone know if there's something similar on the market?

    I may pick up the Manfrotto LED soon (available here). I will let you know how that goes.

    (I will avoid the other one. Key is the high CRI.)

    Rafa, I have the Manfrotto Muse in hand. Will post more after a test spin. Initial impression is quite positive.

    Right off the bat, it lacks juice.. You may want to consider larger units.

    The one switch operation is a PIA. It is the on/off switch as well as the dimmer with no indicators.

    That said, the CRI is good, no flickers (EVF) =>high frequency driver circuit (an issue to consider with LED lights), with the diffuser, the light is of very high quality- no contrasty shadows and such. Generally a wonderful fill light.

    The specular highlights show as soft discs(almost like a ring light). For close ups and macros, this is really nice.

    Next month, I am going to do a wedding and depending on the venue, I could use this as a fill light. Will know more about after that.
