Only wishful thinking here: it would be nice to have finer light level control, beyond the 7 pre-set levels.
Humorous English translation manual is a comic book-style bonus. Luckily it couldn't be easier to learn how to use just by working with it for a few minutes.
I had low expectations ordering this macro light for just ~$40, but after working with it for several days along with my Canon 60D and (primarily) Canon EF 17-40L lens, I have to admit I am really impressed. Using manual exposure and white balance (both easy to setup on the 60D with a few prep shots), I have taken some outstanding close-up and even near distance portrait shots. I also connected it to my video camera and used the continuous light mode with success up to 5-feet in distance.
Again, much to my surprise this is going to go on my Top 10 list of items I've bought on DX, and I am going to order a second one - I mean it's only $40 - just as a backup.
