Last month, DIGITALFOTO has announced the introduction of a new, small RGB LED light: the DIGITALFOTO tree frog. This pocket-sized device can range from 2500K to 8500K and has a full 360 ° HSI mode so you can reproduce almost any color you want. The case is waterproof to IP67 and the back of the case is magnetic, which is very useful for an accent light. Let's take a closer look!
DIGITAL PHOTO Tree Frog – Similarities
Let's start with the fact that the DIGITALFOTO tree frog looks very similar to other lights on the market like the SANDMARC ProLight, the Boling P1, the GODOX M1 and so on. There is nothing wrong with the similarities between the DIGITALFOTO version and others.

I have the GODOX M1 in my camera bag and it's a nice little accent light that can add a little last minute pop of color in the background of your scene.
The tree frog shares many similarities with other pocket-sized RGB lights, including:
- CCT mode: A color temperature range of 2500 to 8500 K with a CRI and TLCI of 97.
- In RGB / HSI mode you can adjust the hue from 0 to 360 ° and the saturation from 0 to 100%.
- A similar output of about 2000Lux at 0.5 m.
- Built-in lighting effects: 20 on the tree frog.15 on the competitors.
- There is a small screen on the back of the device that shows the remaining battery life and all settings.
- A USB Type-C port charges the built-in battery (4,000mAh on the tree frog 2410mAh on the GODOX M1) and also serves as a power bank to charge your smartphone.
- All lights are made of aluminum.
However, the tree frog has some differences from its competitors.
DIGITAL PHOTO Tree Frog – Properties
The tree frog is slightly larger and heavier than, for example, the GODOX M1 with dimensions of 156 x 83 x 16 mm and a weight of 320 g (240 g for the M1). The larger battery takes up more space and is heavier, but it gives you around 3 hours of extended run time at full power, the company said.
The Boling P1 and GODOX M1 only use a few buttons and a dial to adjust your settings. On the other hand, the DIGITALFOTO tree frog only uses buttons, which can be a little slower but more precise.
In addition, the tree frog is rated IP67, which means that it is dustproof and you can place it at 1 m underwater for 30 minutes.
And as with the Nanlite PavoTube II 6C that we tested, the back of the tree frog has integrated magnets that you can use to hang it on metal surfaces. Speaking of mounting options: There are three 1/4 "-20 mounting points – two at the bottom and one on the left – to put it on a tripod / cold shoe adapter.
