I am sure I have written a review in regards to this product, but they have sent me a notice about rating this Item so I will give you my two pence worth. Firstly let me state I am a freelance videographer that needed an adjustable light source for recording whilst in dimly lit locations i.e. night clubs, hotel conference rooms and wedding venues etc. Anyway here are the Cons & Pros, as opposed the Pros & Cons.
Cons: This is not a terribly well build product, over robust handling could snap a few parts on it if you're not careful. The hinge that positions the light never seems quite tight enough, the shoe mount for fastening it onto the video camera or camera suffers from a similar ailment but it suffices. It can be a little difficult placing the lithium battery on as I never received instructions in the box, but after a few tries you will get the gist of it, it may be different for normal pencil type batteries I have not tried.
Pros: I found it very affordable as I am on a budget and need equipment that is within my limited money supplies, the dimmer switch on the side I found to be invaluable as I have a light that I bought for more than three times the amount with no dimmer and it was too bright when recording at work locations hence half blinding some of the clubbers. I find with the smallest of lithium batteries the light would last for more than an adequate period of time. The fact that it can be used with 5 different battery types was a really good purchasing point also. The three diffuses for me sealed the deal and to date I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone on a budget or even looking to be a little more frugal with their budget.

Thanks for this imformative review its been very helpful, I was just wondering what colour the light is and what sort of kelvin you would describe the light as?

Light is rated at 5400 K - white to blue but there are filters to alter the colour.

Does this fit any camera? I have a canon xm2 DV video camera and need a light to use in a club setting. Thanks
