Price & Availability
While it is always good to have more options and competition in the marketplace, there doesn’t seem to be anything overly unique or special about the PavoBulb 10c when you compare it to the competition. It appears to have less output than the Astera NYX and around the exact same amount of output as the Aputure Aputure Accent B7c.
