    Anyone use a Ice Light or one of the other LED light sticks

    I do so little artificial light photography outside that flashes and the various other lighting solutions used today have passed this old guy by. (where's my Strobonar and bulbs ). Anyway I saw these Ice Lights and the lesser priced Sunpaks and the like in daylight balanced light wands used as fill or catch lighting. Anyone use these? Are they worth a hoot for anything? Seem very portable and small enough to use for various purposes. Wish I could find a daylight balanced variable power zoomable flashlight as that is all I really would ever need for those rare time's I may need a fill light afield.

    There's the Lowel GL-1. It's variable power, zoomable, handheld light. It's color is 3000K but you can add a filter to change to 5300K. I've never used one but could be what you are looking for? It does have a little bit of a bad reputation for the battery latch breaking and needing a tape repair job.

    Glen, thanks for the suggestion. That would be bigger than zi am looking for. Currently I carry a Tovatec TOIFLWAZOOMR
    IFL WA Zoom-R Video Light/Flashlight which is close to what I am looking for except the light isn't variable in strength. Zoom lighting is even and temp is 5000-6000k

    Guess no one wants to look like Darth Vader with a light saber in one hand and a a7 in the other I thought it would be a easy carry fill light source for hike in work and could strap to the opposite side of the tripod on a backpack. Seems to get some great reviews from the wedding photog's. I stopped doing weddings/events back in early 70's.

    I believe Frank Doorhof uses Icelights and has some write ups on his site. He likes them specifically for fill lights or to alter the looks of images for his portraiture. His results seem really good but I can say that about his pics before the ice lights came about. In either case it's worth a read for another opinion from first hand usage.

    FWIW he's a Sony (and Team Phase One) shooter so some of his impressions are geared towards use with Sony cameras.
