Very steppy dimmer. Not RDM compatible.

thelxman, 13.10.2017
This is an "ok" but not "good" COB light.

It's not very bright by current standards. Compared to a Stairville Mini Stage PAR 4x8W RGBA on the same colour mix it is not as bright - maybe 75% the brightness. Compared to that unit the beam has better definition and there is very little colour fringing - a little red on one side, a little blue on the other but overall a very homogeneous beam with a flat distribution.

The dimmer curve with DMX however is disappointingly steppy across the range. Very steppy 50% and below. If you run a 10s up fade you can really see the steps during the first 5s phase, then in the second 5s there is not much more fading to do.

I was looking for a PAR16 "birdie" type LED to use for footlights. The fan is small (maybe 40mm or so) but it will be too noisy to be that close to the audience (2 metres or so). In the grid it wouldn't be so much an issue, but I'd say it's as noisy (if not more so) as the fan in some of my much larger (and older) 100W+ LEDs.

Also disappointing for a modern unit is it is not RDM compatible. With RDM enabled on my lighting desk, the unit flickers constantly on all tested colours. The flickering stops if I disable RDM. Note this unit does not have any RDM features, but it is not ignoring the RDM packets in the DMX stream as it should do. This is down to badly written firmware in the DMX decoder micro. Compare the Stairville unit cited above, which has no issue with the RDM and is flicker-free.

Mechanical build quality is nice enough at this price point. The unit comes with a colour frame which is fitted with a fine Fresnel type lens which is apparently to reduce the beam angle from 55 to 40 degrees. All of my comments are with the lens fitted.

So overall, even though this unit has the better colour mixing and beam, the noisy fan, very steppy dimming and RDM intolerance make this an inferior product. I'm disappointed as it's not one of the really cheap models. It's badly let down by the poor DMX and dimmer implementation.

Pros:
- Nice colour mix
- Homogeneous beam
- Clean/neat beam edge
- Cameo have good documentation and technical data on the product and a clear product page (other vendors should take note!)

Cons:
- Not that bright.
- Very steppy dimming - the worst unit I have by far.
- Not tolerant to RDM packets in the DMX data stream (flickers).
- Noisy fan.

Practical all-rounder with many functions.

Nicolas L, 09.06.2014
A very practical mini-PAR with great functions and neat light output. The color mixing is very pleasant and even. Especially the different DMX modes like me very well, the headlights can be perfectly integrated into different setups and adapt to different applications. All functions and standalone programs can be easily adjusted via the small display and are very useful for simple applications.
The headlight housing is pleasantly small, well processed and the double bracket is particularly practical, since floor plates can be omitted.
The built-in fans are quiet despite their small size and do not interfere. Only the enclosed plastic lens for the adjustment of the beam angle could be a little higher quality, but fulfills its purpose. I can highly recommend this product.
