If you're interested in Godox, and happen to be a member of DVXUser, you can get a like new GODOX VL 150 for $310 after shipping.

The Aputure Amaran 100d & 200d look like great options for a YouTube setup, although the fan noise might be kind of high.


CRI gives you a ballpark idea of a light's quality, but it doesn't tell the whole story. TLCI is a better metric, and there are even other metrics that one could consider, see this article.

I bought a few Amaran 100d units because of the non-existing noise... they are unbelievable quiet. The 200d is a bit too noisy to use next to a microphone.
The Amaran 100 series is the best value for money light I own and I use all sorts of lights. So highly recommended from my side. Well, if you need Bowens adapter style lightning of course.
