    Well i'm about 98% sure it's the same light as these other generic branded ones. I can't see one physical difference or change in them and would imagine the internals to be identical as well since i would only think it was designed together as a whole and are all built in the same china factory. Even the carry bag has idenctical piping in other versions, Just Axrtec has part of the back panel painted blue, and their brand sewn into the bag. This light can be purchased under the Andoer brand for under $200. Wish i had checked it out sooner. I'll be purchasing the Andoer Light so maybe a comparison would be in order. I'll most likley go by my gut and send the two B&H models back, that extra $200 dollars could by me a third light, or some nice light stands plus some.

      If you get both, a comparison would be greatly appreciated.

      The reviews of the other brands frequently state that they were "underwhelmed" by the brightness...which is listed in ALL of these lights as 32W.

      But Vic H. and Fuego both say they are very bright, and Fuego measured it as a 64W draw.
      So perhaps Dracast is simply buying these lights in bulk and hot-rodding them for the doubled output...?

        I've done a lot of testing with the Aputure 120t. When a fresnel lens is attached it is nearly identical to the Arri 650w but a little bit brighter.

                  Hey FUEGO -
                  What piece of hardware did you use you mount the umbrella to the light?

                  Thanks.

                    Originally I ordered this one by Arri, but b&h fucked up and sent me the Frotto instead. They're usually on point, so I'm not mad, just need to get a proper stud. The Frotto is solid and holds the weight of the Axrtec + 150wh battery without worries.

                    I'll take a wild guess that the bi-color is 32 watts, but don't hold me to it.

                    Edit: I use these to counter balance tripods and light stands, but I'm also going to experiment with lead fishing weights and drop them into the legs 'cause I don't like sandbags. The On Stage weights fit in the palm of your hand which makes them easier to haul around.

                      If it's the same light for $200, that's just going to be plain silly.

                            Ordered 3 Andoer versions for $470 shipped. I'm getting a little crazy here, if these prove to be identical, of course the bh rebrand is going back, and maybe I might pee pee on the box.

                              How did you pay $470 for three lights if each cost $200?

                                Yeah I was wondering the same. Did they give you a discount? If so I'll prob do the same.
