    Extra Light

    Posted
    hllywd310

    I needed extra light for when I do my indoor pictures that the flash on my dslr cannot provide. I hadn't planned on buying extra lighting when I went to best buy today. I saw this product and thought this might do the trick. It was 29.99 but when they rang it up it was only 20.99 because it was on sale. Hmmmm even better for a product that I hadn't researched. Worst case I could bring it back if I wasn't satisfied. Low and behold it looks like it is exactly what I needed. I took some shots in very low light with this on and the results look great so far. Looking forward to testing it out some more. Only complaint is that the battery compartment isn't marked how the 4 aa batteries are supposed to go in. I figured it out and everything works to include the dimmer dial on the side. So far great buy.

    This is an excellent video and photography light because it does the job.It removes the shadows of other objects to just be the outlien and it works properly.One concern is that you can't plug it into an outlet but besides that THIS IS AN AMAZING PHOTO/VIDEO LIGHT!!!Will be using it for a long time--Also get is the Insignia Light stand so then it can be on a stand while you are filming this is also great for films and interviews and all these very low light conditions;;If the battery compartment doesn't work then try flipping the other batteries in a pattern and try it again it should light up and work.

    Bright but harsh

    I use this for YouTube but it's a little on the harsh side. the defusers that come with it don't really defuse that much light. I wear glasses so it can be really hard but even without it. it can cast a heavy shadow on my green screen. I would use this for videography for parties, not static shots for YouTube.

    Surprisingly Bright Light

    This small light lacks quite a punch in terms of brightness. It also comes with dimmer/color inserts to help you diffuse the light, as well and change the color temp. Only downfall is it runs on regular batteries, so be sure to use rechargeable ones so you aren’t burning through them.

    I have more costly led lights but this one works just as well. It has a dimmer and separate on/off switch. The color temp/kelvin is not a function but you can use filters. The cold shoe/tripod mount is very handy. This is a good buy.

    For the price at less then $40 it's a great photo and video light the construction could be better but used gently it should last a good long time It's adjustable lightning let's you get good exposure on videos and photos

    I was doubtful when I purchased this that the output would be adequate. But much to my surprise, the 96 Led output worked fine in taking stills and video with my Samsung S9. For the price, I couldn't have done better.

    We had a little difficulty inserting the batteries correctly since the direction were a bit difficult to make out. Once the batteries went in the proper way, the light works really well.

    Very Amateur Grade

    Purchased and returned. Two major issues. 1) Battery holder was not identified with battery polarity and would not stay closed. 2) Very flimsy mounting shoe. Still looking for a higher grade light.

    I gave this product 4 stars only because it’s kinda bulky. I was desperate for a light and bestbuy was out of the smaller ones. The quality is great, I just wanted something smaller

    It is a battery eater! It get the job done on making solid fill light for ny videos but it eats batteries quickly, so I suggest gettimg some rechargeable AA batteries.

    I ordered 2 lights. Neither one worked for me. I had to return both of them. I tried 2 packs of batteries. Forget the price and stay away.
