Digital Camera World Verdict

Inexpensive and lightweight but with fancy features and supplied complete with a remote controller, the Godox CL10 LED makes it quick and easy to add pretty much any color of ambient lighting to a webcast. It’s equally adept at adding mood accents in stills photography. Not just a ‘constant light’, it also features 39 videocentric special lighting effects. Power is supplied from a bundled USB mains adapter, but any 5V/2A USB charger will suffice. There’s no built-in or optional battery but, if mains electricity isn’t readily available, you can run the CL10 from a commonly available USB power bank.

Whether you’re chatting with friends on Zoom, trying to impress clients in a videoconference, or webcasting to your adoring public, one thing’s for sure. After so long relying on video link-ups for keeping in touch when we haven’t been able to meet face-to-face, everybody’s sick and tired of bland and boring background lighting, based on rudimentary overhead room illumination or daylight creeping in through a window. The Godox CL10 aims to jazz things up with a plethora of lighting colors and special effects, adding some pizzazz to your video presence.
