Digital Camera World Verdict

If you’re lighting a subject from a distance then you don’t necessarily need a bendable LED, but you’ll still enjoy using the Dragon B25R’s collection of animated lighting presents and its ability to emit a full spectrum of creative colors (plus its ability to match a wide range of different color temperatures in degrees K.) However, if you need to photograph products or capture close-up portraits then you’ll find the B25R’s ability to curve the light source as a big bonus. It’s also reasonably priced compared to rigid light wands such as the ZHIYUN FIVERAY F100.

There are plenty of LED light wands and panels vying for your hard-earned cash. What makes the Sirui B25R Dragon stand out from the LED crowd is that it is can bend. It achieves this feat by being a hybrid between a light wand and an LED panel.

It consists of nine LED panels that are hinged together so that you can light a subject with a straight array or bend the panels to surround the subject (such as a face or a product) with a pool of light.  Some light panels require a gel to be added to change the color of their output. The Sirui B25R’s LEDs can be changed to any color in the spectrum which makes it a versatile light source for creative photography and videography.
