Great little light - Expensive


from Western CO  -  Casual Photographer

After I read so many reviews of this light I decided to try it. I've only had to use it twice and I've been please with it both times. It's light weight, and easy to use (after I upgraded the firmware on the camera). Although it integrates with the camera very well, I think that Canon overcharges for it's accessories. Maybe in a year or two someone will make some off-brand products but until then we're stuck paying "gun-in-the-ribs" prices. My next purchase will be the add-on microphone. I would recommend that others buy that accessory first, then consider this light.

DOUGLAS R  Suitable video camera light that was compact enough to fit in a small hip bag we carry the camera in. It worked well filming our kids Halloween night as they made the rounds.
