Most Liked Positive Review

 

Nice tool for shooting in the dark.

I really hate using the flash light in events at night time which seems to disturb most peopel attending. However, I found this light to be both helpful with shooting and somewhat less distracting for the spectators. It definitely helps with the pictures/videos, and fits better in my pocket than any of the shoe mount flash lights. Handy tool to keep in the bag.

Good light, but can't get one fixed

The lights are small and portable and last about 1.5 hours on a good set of 3 AAA batteries. I bought five and one did when they arrived. They were drop shipped from the vendor, I have still not been able to get a replacement, so beware that if they need repair you may be out of luck.

On-Off Light

Amazing Bright light. Easy to hand hold off camera as probably the best use of it. Reflectors, bounce, and whatever, it lasts a reasonably long time on the batteries.

I like it

By

from Reno, NV  -  Tech Savvy

I own a Panasonic GH2 with 14/140 lens, which isn't great in low light. I use the led for situations where a little extra light is needed. On auto white balance the colors and overall exposure come out just fine.

Really great, high quality, low cost!

By

from Connecticut  -  Tech Savvy

I use this product with both my DSLR camera and my Sony Camcorder and it works really great. This is so much better than the infrared that comes with the camera and the brightness is amazing. You can pretty much light up an entire room with this light. The light comes with a little extender so that it can be further away from the camera shoe which is really useful. I've used it outdoors and indoors. Outdoors it is useful to have the subject you are taking a picture of look into the light so that their eye pupils become smaller and reveal more of their natural eye color. Overall, I've had some great experience with this.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What is the color of the lights in this Bescor LED-40?
ANTHONY L  White.
Shopper  How do you adjust exposure and shutter speed when using this?
MARY T  Turn the light on, take a meter reading. Adjust as you want the image to look. I usually set my aperture(I like to control depth of field) and let the camera choose the shutter speed. If I don't like what the camera does, I put it on manual. Set my aperture, and adjust the shutter speed up or down depending on the effect I want.
