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

Pros:
I bought the light as extra addition to my DV camcorder
- The lamp produces enough light in dark conditions to film.
- Light temperature is about 9000K so auto white balance works good on any cam.
- The case can hold up to 4 AA instead of 2.
- Overall build quality is good. No sharp edges
Cons:
- The on/off button could be triggered when stowed away. This could be replaced by a sunken switch instead of push button.
- The current 2 light levels could be expanded to 4 to have more control in any situation.
- Beside normal white led's infrared would be nice for night shots
Other:
Bottomline:
Even though its low budget the lamp is worth the money and is a good addition to your equipment.
