    Nice product for the price

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheap product, easy to carry and you can install in "point and shoot" cameras with the bracket. Has two levels of lightning and uses 4 x AA batteries, that makes easy to change batteries when needed.
    Cons:
    The inside bulding construction is not too good. There is a small piece that can easily drop with a small bump and does not wor...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good full illumination with the option to dim the light through a switch. It was made with good materials and it was well assembled. With the extension support you can use and adjust it on your camcorder or camera without any difficulty. You can also attach...
    Cons:
    4 AA battery could be a problem, but I have been using rechargeable batteries. No other cons founded so far.

    Lighting very efficient

    posted by catraka on 05/27/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very light and energy saver, the charged batteries last much longer than expected and the diference between the recording with this light and without it is noticeable, the colors from footage from my handycam are much brighter end defined.
    Cons:
    I don't see any cons at the moment. The rail mount is plastic, but hey - even then it's great for the price.

    Bright Enough for Most Video

    posted by ExtremeFlyer on 02/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Used mainly for video work. Four NiMH AA cells fully charged lasts about 5 hours of shooting. Very lightweight. Mounting harness can fit most camcorders.
    Cons:
    Limited brightness - better than no added light at all. Will end up using auto or low-light setting on Camcorder anyways if yo...

    Good light

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is a great light! I was looking for a continuous light to use in a softbox for photography. My criterias were that it needed to be small and not to get too hot as some lights tend to do. I'm very please with this light!
    Cons:
    The door to put the batteries in on the back of the light is a bit hard to open, but considering that I won't have to do it oft...

    Light weight and very practical/variable device

    posted by shady88 on 02/07/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a great device. The diffusion is nicely applied, but mainly the way of handeling and changing the device to apply on your camera. You can spin the flash to sides where you want to place it. you have the ability to actually create a bright light or less...
    Cons:
    It works on battaries (not included) and not on a chargable accu.
