    Pros:

    Cheap
    Batteries last a long time
    Good power for LEDs
    A breeze to pop on and off
    Good build quality

    Cons:

    Not strong enough for macro key lighting
    Diffusion is not great so you see lots of little dots

    OtherThoughts:

    I take lots of bug macros and I Bought this thinking I would be able to light up macro subjects, but LEDs are no where near the power of flash. It does work great for giving a little extra light in an unusual fashion. If you want to use this hand held on a camera as a key light, you better get ready to crank that iso button up.

    Bottomline:

    It creates some cool lighting and is nice and cheap. Worth the money, but not going to freeze subjects like a flash.
