Sunshine on a cloudy day


from Conroe, TX  -  Professional Artist

This is a ridiculously bright light. Can take a room from pitch dark to lit up like the New York Christmas tree in seconds. The dimmer switch provides a nice low end in case you don't always need the sun in your back pocket. Easily able to use at ISO400 with no huge need to go over ISO800 unless for a desired grain. Great light for the money, with ease of portability.


Nice LED camera light


from Michigan  -  Film Professional

This LED camera light has a very handy dimmer on it. I replaced a conventional hot light with this, which was not dim-able and very hot. Be sure to white balance if you adjust the dimmer. I have not used it extensively as of yet and I'm a little concerned about the plastic housing when used in day to location shooting. I purchased the AC adapter as well because the light takes 8 AA batteries and I try to preserve them for shots where AC power is not available.


Bright light good value in todays market


from Padova Italia  -  Film Professional

In the marketplace of 2013, these dimable lights are handy for budget production. Yes, there are many choices under $200, but we are pleased with the amount of light, included filter, and dimmer. We purchased 3 for a speed filming comptetion, realizing the lights will likely be broken or stolen. At this price point, no tears! Adorama is ALWAYS a reliable source for our budget.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Lee F  It's better than nothing and great in a pinch. It was the best value at the time. However, the brightness dial feels really cheap and does not increase brightness smoothly. Most of the time, it feels like it only has two brightness settings, rather than transitioning nicely as the wheel-shaped dial implies it will.
Robert M  Is this light compatible with a Canon XH A1 professional video camera? Does it come with a battery or what type of battery does it use?
EMILIO P  Is very good for weddings , battery last forever
