Pros:
- Lightweight. - Uses AA batteries with a great durability. - Can be inserted to any shoe. - Small and can fit in any bag pocket.
Cons:
- Blueish tone of the LEDs. - Doesn't allow color corretion filters. - The extension support is made of plastic and must be carefully stored.
Other:
Bottomline:
A great item to have in the camera bag. I've been using it for a professional documentary with a flawless execution. The only problem is to use it with amateur cameras that don't allow manual white balance, the camera may auto ajust to a wrong color tone.
