Litepanel Micro?

Has anyone out there used a Litepanel Micro attached to their camera for added light? I know that they are traditionally used on video cameras, but I thought that they might be good for portrait photographers.

  I was in Baltimore a few months ago on assignment for one of my publishers and ran into a photojournalist from Dallas also on the same assignment. He was using the Litepanel and when asked about the results, he was less than enthusiastic. According to him, it works well if you're shooting close and have plenty of ambient light, but the Litepro is better suited for video and not stills.
