The Yongnuo Pro LED YN900C Video Light is brilliantly made, and for its price and features, unbeatable. Unfortunately, it also digs its own grave by having a fan that does three cardinal sins:
- Raises the decibel level by 2-3 dB.
- Is most loud at 1200 Hz, and also has other frequencies that interfere entirely with speech, so is difficult to remove.
- Worst of all, it starts and stops at will, and is unpredictable. Due to this, there’s no constant ‘hum’ (it’s more like a whine) that can be easily removed in post.
For productions that involve recording audio, I cannot recommend this unit. For everything else, there are few others that are better at this price point.Make no mistake. This unit offers value for money so many are likely to ignore the audio issue hoping for the best. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Personal take: I don’t prefer LEDs, mainly due to the color cast even after white balancing them; and also the fact that they’re hard to control. The newer fresnel LED units are way too heavy and large with their massive heat sinks. But things are changing fast!
Well, that’s the end of my review. I hope you have found it beneficial for the kind of productions you’re doing.
