Digital Camera World Verdict

If you thought that LED constant lighting kits were, well, a bit on the dark side, the brilliantly intense Godox S60 will make you think again. Based on a compact and lightweight head unit and separate control box, it adds a zoom facility that enables you to sweep from flood to spot lighting, while an included set of barndoors further enhance the control of light coverage. All in all, it’s a powerful lighting kit that’s great for video and also works well for stills photography.

LED lighting panels aren’t exactly ten a penny but they’ve become very affordable of late, with plentiful Chinese options flooding the market, manufactured by the likes of Neewer and GVM, to name but a couple. They’re mainly geared to video capture but can also be useful for shooting stills. Either way, the maximum output often leaves more than a little to be desired. The Godox S60 Focusing LED Light (also sold as the CLAR S60 in North America) aims to settle that score, with an ultra-bright maximum intensity and the addition of a zoom facility, along with a useful range of video-friendly special effects.
