What is the Pixel Liber RGB Video Light?
The Pixel Liber pocket video light is a small LED light that’s about the size of an average palm of a hand. The build quality is fantastic and coupled with a practical design it far surpasses what you would usually expect from an imaging light source at this price point.
The main difference the Pixel Liber offers compared to other LED lights of this size is that it features full RGB LEDs. These color-changing LEDs allow the light to emit reds, greens, and blues, as well as the more normal range of color temperatures.
This is perfect for when you are shooting a video or pictures and want to add a green, yellow, or even pink hue to your images without any interference.
The light is straightforward with a 1/4-inch thread on the base and side allowing a bunch of mounting options. The power, charging port, and dual-use control dials are all conveniently positioned on the other side of the light.
Plus, the direct controls of the lamp can also be handled through a Bluetooth connection to the iOS or Android App.
Another feature of the Pixel Liber RGB Video Light is a rubberized diffuser that neatly slots over the lamp to help soften the LED brightness.
Lastly, this small pocket light includes two small magnets which make it easier to stick to metal surfaces like fridge doors, radiators, and railings.
My Pixel Liber RGB Video Light Review
This is the smallest of the “shirt pocket” sized lights I have, but it is easily the brightest and has the most features. First, it has a sturdy aluminum case with 1/4-20 threaded holes on the bottom and side, even the on-off switch is metal. The case also has a built-in magnet to hold the light to any metal surface. It is just a little bigger than a credit card and probably smaller than your wallet.
You control the light from a clickable wheel on the side and can set all the options including color temperature, RGB color, brightness from VERY dim up to full blast, and some color special effects such as police lights.
You can ALSO control the light by Bluetooth using an iOS or Android phone. The app connects quickly and makes setting up the light much faster, if you want you can also capture a color using the phone camera and the light will match it. The app makes this a very quick light to set up and easy to change the settings if you have used the magnet to stick it to something up high.
The 3000mah battery will run this at full power for about 90 minutes, this may seem shorter than similar lights, but this light is MUCH brighter. I have another light that is slightly larger with the same size battery, this Pixel Lieber light can match its output even when dialed back to 75%, at full power, it’s clearly brighter.
Included with the light is a USB-A to USB-C charge cable, a metal ball head for mounting to a camera shoe, and a silicone diffuser that softens the light. The silicone diffuser can also protect the front of the light if you want to throw it in a purse or carry bag. You need to use your own USB wall charger or plug it into a computer to charge it.
This light may seem a bit more expensive than some of the similar models you can find on the internet, but I think the app control, great build quality, and high brightness for the size make it worth the extra money.
