Product review chapters
According to Malcolm, this light can emit highly bright lights, kicking out just over 20 000 lux, being impressive for a handheld device. With a total weight of 920g, the Fiveray FR100c is not a bad light for run and gun shoots and has a silent cooling system to battle the temperatures from the power of the lights.
Malcolm says that for the first Zhiyun light (Fiveray FR100c) and the price of less than 200£, you are getting a lot of bang for your buck. With some improvements needed, such as the scroll wheel and the button for the functions being a bit too fragile and the handling could be uncomfortable sometimes but yet you are getting a good product for the price stated.
If you are after a 200£ product light that kicks out a lot of power, and you need something on the go for a run and gun style like a portrait shoot or video shoot with CCT and HSI modes, then this is the product for you. You must deal with some uncomfortable handling and work with those fragile buttons. But what you get for the price is fair for new upcoming photographers or filmmakers.
