Great value for price! – SYD-0808 64-LED 480LM Continuous Lighting for Camera and Camcorder (4*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
The light is really strong (even stronger than I thought when I was ordering it :-)
You can see my video once it's approved.
The plastic rail mount is good if you don't have a better way to mount the light. It's plastic, so it can break, but it doesn't seem to be easily breakable.
It has a low/high switch which might be usable if you don't need full power.
It works fine with my rechargable Varta AA batteries (I've read that some lights do not like the 1.2V rechargable batteries and work just with regular nonrechargable 1.5V batteries)
It's quite small, which is great.
It allows you to couple several lights together (you can attach the second light to the first one directly with the shoe and you might be able to do it with several lights I think)
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.
Other:
I didn't have enough time to test the battery life so I can't comment on that.
Bottomline:
Definitelly recommended product. If you want some good lighting for great price, go for it.
