  • Great flashlite

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    The case is steel, with glass, and feels strong. Front with glass is screwed on top of the case, en contains a watertight O-ring. Cable hole is properly glued on the inside.

    The webcam where I bought this thing for, is very sensitive for 850nm light, so I can illuminate my subjects. The case contains a hole for a standard camera mount. Soldering inside looks ok.

    Cons:

    I tried with several camera's. All camera's see the IR light, but not very good. My sony DCR-SR55 see only a little of the light. Not enough to illuminate something. My Canon Powershot A80 can hardly see the light.

    But: the ovislink WL5400CAM is working well with it.

    OtherThoughts:

    The leds are switched off if there is normal sunlight. This works well. The flaslight takes about 125mA. (Not as much as 500mA)

    It would be nice if a power adapter was included.

    Bottomline:

    Overall, this flashlight is great value for money, but you should really check if your camera can see the 850nm light.
