This image shows the accurate color temperature and spread of the light and how it works beautifully to drop light in when you need it and don't want a silhouette or the instant pop of a flash. I haven't tried it on my drone yet, but wanted to show the extra capability and versatility. It's a staple in my camera bag now. The light can be used to scan the scene and illuminate a pretty broad area so you can find your subject and grab a shot. This was a handheld shot using my iPhone while I was rolling video on a tripod. I glanced around behind me and was able to multitask quickly. This is fellow fire photographer, Kent Porter, on the Kincade Fire, Nov.'19. The other footage I have is 4K video where I mounted the RUGO on the camera and removed the lens hood to eliminate the half-moon shadow. It could be mounted higher on the hot shoe to get around that and I am tinkering with it. The nice thing is that you can hand hold and move the light around while rolling and give some detail in very dark areas. You see it in the viewfinder and if you roll long enough you can get it where you want it and then cut out what doesn't work. That footage is going into a film and so I can't share it here, but it worked quite well.
Prompt service and a great product.
Lights are nice, mounting system could be improved.
We just got two lights and took them for a first run on our recent shoot inside a Fulfillment Center. Some locations within the facility have poor lighting and these two Foxfury worked great in these instances. Light weight, long battery life and the fact that you can put them in your pocket and move on to the next makes these an excellent investment. Great job!
Have not tried them on UAV yet. Very well made, but I am concerned about the weight for use on Phantom 4 Pro UAV. They are heavier than I expected.
Will have to wait until afew missions are flown for a full assessment.
