I first review LP Micro first impression here http://lacolorPros.com/blog/view.asp?id=48
Now I have been using LP Micro for a few months. Here's a more accurate review.
The light is weak. Not powerful enough. Have to use the 1/4 color temperature filter. Makes the light even weaker.
Overall built is flimsy. The dimmer switch is already broken.
The battery compartment always has a tendency to push the batteries out causing disconnect.
I am using high rate AA rechargable batteries. Even so, I can get about 40-50 minutes of usage per charge. Then I found out I have to carry a lot of spare AA batteries (and recharge them the night before) and keep replacing them at the 3 to 4 hours reception. It's very unusable. Worst is, while I change the batteries, I was holding 4 new batteries in one hand, try to replace 4 used batteries, with holding the light in other hand while having to press the battery compartment so they batteries won't pop out. Imagine what it's like doing all that while the reception is still going on.
During the end of battery life, the lights start to flicker. It got so bad the flickering will be recorded to video. It makes the footage unusable because of the flickering on the object.
The LP Micro isn't very bright. It casts a circular spot light with a 5600 K color temperature. So after adding the color correction gel and the diffusion gel, it is not bright at all. It is comparable to the Canon VL-3 light with the 3-watt output.
IT DOESN'T WORTH IT FOR THE PRICE.
