      Great video light

      ONLY 4 STARS DUE TO PLASTIC SHOE MOUNT. The light is great!! Arrived partially pre charged and is included with a wall charger and a charger plugs directly to the light in the back for direct power. The controls are easy to operate and allows for easy use for beginners. The shoe mount for the camera is plastic and the light can be top heavy causing a lot of strain on the plastic mount. Would be an incredible light if the mount was metal. Not sure why a light of this value is mounted with a plastic mount. Overall a good investment for low light video shooting. Also works good for taking pictures in low light. The power button can also be accidentally turned on when stored in your bag as it is not a switch, but a single press button. This issue is avoided by storing it with the battery disconnected. The light was noticed to be extremely painful on peoples eyes during shooting, and a diffuser would be solve this, but is not included. Would be 5 stars if it had a metal shoe mount, power switch over a button, and overall less cheap plastic. Overall, unit is over valued by Best Buy, but is a good investment for the consumer for moderate usage.

      Light works fine but the battery is horrible

      I needed something small and I needed it right away for a shoot so after doing a little bit of research to see what my options in-store might be, this was the product that I found. I bought it a few months ago and right out of the box brand-new the battery did not work and would not charge. I called up to customer service and they told me to just return the device and get a new one. I did that, this time the battery did work but not for long... The same thing that afflicted the battery from the first purchase just happened to this battery, it will not charge. I shoot professionally and I understand what's needed for proper care to maintain battery life and overall longevity, this is just a faulty product. Now I have to call in to see if I can get the battery exchanged before the warranty is up. Honestly the light itself is very useful if you need something on the go but the faulty battery pretty much cancels out anything positive about this device. I'd say don't waste your money, I should've just gone to B&H like I normally do.

      There is many features of this light that I have not used but I find that it works for getting necessary amount of light from 10 to15 feet. The ability to change the K output of the light for doing close ups is a bonus, and at first having the remote was kind of a bother and then I started using it and now I know why it comes with that remote, IT IS HANDY. I use this light in a bar setting with minimal light and it works well. The only down side is the lack of wide angle light vs an almost spot light from the LED's which are getting better. This light is not perfect but it is hands down better than the bar lighting that I was using. This has become a handy light for a number of situations, from the videos that I take to working on my desktop computer. The feature that I really like is the fact that it will fit on my flash mount and also mount is on a tripod which is my favorite way to mount and use it.

      Wonderful little light for photography and video

      I needed a constant light source for indoor photography and occasional video shooting. After reading the reviews, I decided to go with this light and I couldn't be happier. The light is just right for my purposes - not too much or not too little. I like the fact that you can either plug it using included power adapter or use battery to power it if no power source is nearby. Comes included with all the right accessories to help mount it on the stand, on the camera hotshoe or handheld. Many reviewers have stated that the battery dies quite quickly so I will post an update if this happens to me. For now, I have only had the light for a few weeks and no issues so far.

      BEST LAST MINUTE DECISION

      Ok so if you read the title of my review, it's exactly what it states "BEST LAST MINUTE DECISION". Basically I was last minute shopping for extra accessories for an event I was filming and decided to quickly pick this light up in the event that I needed an extra light source. It turned out to be one of the best last minute pick-ups that I've made. The light works great and greatly improved my shots. Also the controller and features that it comes with came extremely handy. The light is very well built and I actually plan on picking up a second one. Highly recommended for anyone filming or shooting videos in low-light conditions. A Must Have!

      Cheap and unreliable

      I've purchased two of these units in the past year and both are useless to me now. The housing is constructed of cheap plastic, particularly the shoe mount, which has broken on both of my units as a result of light (i.e., less than once/week, on average) use. A metal contact pin on one of the chargers fell out, rendering it useless. And, as many others have mentioned, one of the batteries has completely failed after just a few months of light use (once a week, on average). I would not recommend this model to anybody.

      Great while it lasts (so not long)

      I've purchased FOUR of these lights. All four of the lights are no longer useful to me as the batteries have died within a month of purchasing them. The light works if the AC/Converter line in is plugged in to the outlet, however, operating on battery only worked the first couple uses. I would not recommend this product - buy something better - even the smaller $49 tiny LED panel lights have been better for me because at least I can count on those. Very disappointed.

      I’ve purchased this item twice and both times I’ve had issues charging it. With my first purchase it never charged and luckily Best Buy allowed me to exchange. With my second purchase it charged once for about 20 mins and then stopped again. I’ve tried multiple outlets and I own multiple products which I use without any problem so I know the outlets aren’t the issue. If I plug it in it works fine but defeats my purpose of buying it. If not for the charging issues and the fact that it’s happened on two occasions it would be a great light.
