Can Hakutatz light be used in place of flash?

6 months 2 weeks ago #674168 by Photo Amigo
I want a light that I can use for both video and still photos.  I was reading an article about this Hakutatz light, but it speaks more on the video side.  What about for stills, would this still be able to be used for still work?

Light is light… no problem!

Two points worth noticing:
1, proper WB, better work with a reference card
2, the pupils will be smaller than with flash

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Yes, you can use continuous light for stills. However, the output of those types of light is quite a bit less than what a speedlight or strobe can produce. You may be disappointed when you have to turn up the ISO to get a decent exposure.

Would you recommend constant light for lighting macro?  

OP - excuse me jumping in on your thread.  If this isn't allowed feel free to remove my question.  Thank you

It's OK for static subjects but with mobile subjects, the short duration of the flash will freeze movement, be it your own or your subjects.

No these are LED lights only.  It's bright, but no where near enough to act like a flash.
