Good product for home use – SYD-0808 64-LED 480LM Continuous Lighting for Camera and Camcorder (4*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
It's a solid good looking device. Compact formfactor, does not require much space to carry or to store. Convenient to attach to camcoder. Could be attached both directly to a hot shoe or through incuded rail mount. Fairly good lighting for the price.
Cons:
The rail mount is not enough strong .
Other:
I tested its current consumption. In full (High) mode it's 960 mA. In dim (Low) mode it's 550 mA. That means that the item will work continiously at full power for at least two hours when loaded with say 2500mAh accus (like SKU 00487). As for my opinion the item produces good light from the distance 2-3 meters which is enough for home video.
Bottomline:
I am completely satisfied with this purchase. Definitely recommended for home videos.
