    I found in the USA, this brand:
    Intellytech
    https://www.intellytechusa.com/colle...nel-led-lights

    It seems to be the same models of the Falcon Eyes.
    Any info on this? Anyone tried them?
    Is it a division of Falcon Eyes or is Falcon Eyes that sells/rebrands the Intellytech products?

    I found what he meant in the last comments of this topic:
    https://nofilmschool.com/2017/11/apu...k-and-thats-ok

    It seems he refers to V-mount battery when used more than 90% power. Not a hardware light failure, but a "save the lamp for too much heat".

    Btw, I shoot 45 deg almost all the time with this light, haven't noticed anything unusual.

They are completely aware of the issue and offer no fix other than a vague promise about a fix someday...

    Good to know! Thank you

    Has anyone used the 150, looks like it could be the sweet spot in punch vs potential over heating. Also a good amount cheaper than the 200.

    Exactly. Me too hope this.

    Anyway, at this point I'm more oriented toward the FalconEyes, it seems more quality light and lot of functions. Pity there's no Bowen-s. The Aputure 300 costs too much at this point.

    The 100w clearly does NOT FLICKER anymore - excellent!

    My 200w matches my old early model 100w much better than the two lights in this video do.

    Interesting that there is a 150w model now. I will probably look into that one as well.

    That's a bummer about the newer 200w models being greenish. Although if you've been following the monolithic LED light technology you'd know that these higher outputs have been VERY hard to get working very well without spending a TON of money. When the GODOX 200w first came out I was not only surprised but also fairly skeptical of it.

    Why that PixaPro light is not sold in the USA is a mystery to me. I saw them in use several times on SONS OF ANARCHY.

    The flicker of the 100 model below 50% has never been a problem for me because I'm always using it at at least that brightness because I'm nearly always diffusing it, or bouncing it.
    The Umbrella mount on the bottom of these lights is a real charm. It takes 10-seconds to power it up and throw a $15 diffusion umbrella on the front with no extra stands or mounts or anything.
    Good to know, I was thinking the 200 anyway for max punch, dial back if needed. Is fan noise an issue at all?

    Hey DPStewart, thanks for the heads up on the GODOX brand. The Pixapro looks cool but only links to UK sellers. Need North American option.

    Anyway, now I'm looking at another brand that seems more complete and slightly more pricey but bicolor...!
    The Falcon eyes DLL-1600TDX
    These exist also with V-mount battery plate, even if with slightly less power:
    DLL-1600TW

    https://www.ebay.it/sch/i.html?_odkw...+1600&_sacat=0

    I don't know if they also have multiple shadows... I'm still waiting on a promised review by Curtis Judd!
    I have used the GODOX monolithic LED light head with shadow kits and I never noticed multiple shadows. It comes through like any other single point light source.
    As for that portion of that video put up in the OP - it's not clear how that was generated.
