Comparison of Appearance Design

  1. The sophomore changes the OLED screen from the back to side, this will reduce the wear of the screen, and you can also read the battery capacity/color temperature/brightness intuitively. LAOFAS Rainbow light

  2. The sophomore changes the button to the wheel, the control wheel is quite ergonomic that makes the adjustment of the setting quite convenient and fast.

  3. The material of these two lights both feels smooth, but the sophomore has a better matte texture to the touch.

Overall, the LAOFAS Sophomore has some important advances from LAOFAS fresh. Also the price is increased. But considering the RGB light with the same functions on the market, the LAOFAS Sophomore light is indeed affordable and performs well.

Look some customer review on Amazon:

Esther: Excellent portable light 

The LAOFAS RGB LED light is an extremely powerful light. It has an excellent color range, and awesome lighting modes and effects. The wide range of color temperatures from 2500 to 8500K allows me to match this light in any setting. It comes with a great diffuser add on as well which is a great perk. Extremely lightweight, it's easy to carry and travel with. Overall, this light is a great buy. All of its features and extra add ons makes it a winner.

Josh Bingham: Crazy bright for the size 

Exceeded my expectations. The light comes with a carrying case that fits all auxiliary equipment. It comes with a silicone diffuser, two different horse-shoe attachments, a mini three-leg stand, and power cords. The light is crazy bright for the size. I haven't had a shoot long enough to test battery life. My only complaint is that it took a second for me to figure out how to change the led colors. But there are only a few buttons so you'll figure it out. Hint, the side control wheel/button/flicker thing. All in all, good diffusion. Compact. Solid. Simple. :)

J.T. Shaver: Unbelievable deal for a pocket light

There is more to this light than it seems that make it a great deal. Big color range, RGB, a case, diffuser, and accessories, phone App control, special effects, AND built in magnets. To get all that with similar lights, you will usually pay around $30-$50 more at minimum, so it's really a good value. This is just a super solid light at a good price, not much more to say!
