I have been a production technical director for 20+ years with extensive experience in industry standard lighting equipment and let me tell you, this little light is the real deal. From the built like a tank construction, to the 100% useful, real world accessories, this little light easily handles all of my mobile lighting needs. If you’re on the fence, pick one up, you will NOT be disappointed.
I was intrigued by these little powerhouses. Did my research. Listened to friends in the field. Bought one to try. LOVE IT. I now have two Torch 2.0, barn doors, filters, and mini-tripod. I honestly use these now when I need a quick lighting solution and I don't want to drag out the soft boxes. They provide more than enough lighting to fit almost all occasions: main light, fill light, whatever you need. And in the field they are outstanding. Extremely portable, and (so far) battery life has been better than expected, especially if you're using as fill light on the low setting. Provides really nice accents. I couldn't be happier. Oh, and also recommended, as your collection grows, get yourself the carrying case!!
My Litra Torch 2 has not yet been put to it’s intended use as a light source for closeup and macro photography. I am, however, impressed with its sturdy build, wide range of light intensity, and the field of view it covers with even illumination. I look forward to using it.
I'd been looking at a few lighting options for my DSLR setup, and one of the features I wanted was portability. After finally settling Litra, I can honestly say these little things are a beast. The amount of light they kick out is just wonderful, and coupled with the silicon diffusers, they are extremely capable of filling your scene in so many different ways. I'm currently quite small scale in terms of my photography skills, but as soon as I can, I'll be expanding my Litra range.
This little object is so powerful and versatile. The Litra Torch 2.0 I have only had for a few weeks but it has proved useful on many occasions it now lives full time in my camera bag and
