    I bought this to replace a 3-watt Sony light that drained my Sony HDR-HC7's battery. The illumination is an incredible step up, while using far less power (and none from my camcorder, thanks to the built-in battery compartment on the light.) However, I did not realize that this light will not fit my camcorder's accessory shoe without an adapter. I haven't bought the adapter yet, because I'm not exactly sure which one I need. It would have been helpful for the product description to point this out. Bescor could make some money if it would offer the adapters. Construction is a bit on the cheap side, but so is the price -- so not a bad compromise, in my eyes.

      Yeah, so the construction is a bit cheap. The light, however, performs great! Way more light than I thought I would get out of such an inexpensive unit. When it's time for me to get a second light, I will probably get the exact same thing again.

      i'm a ameture-pro photographer that sometimes does video and i found this light to be bright the batteries lasted the two hours I was shooting with the light on 80% of the time. the dimming works well, but the construction tells me it's not for full time use.

              Battery compartment door failed so I paid for a replacement. The replacement door is now bent (from the pressure of the batteries) and the battery connection metal parts popped off. Low price but I will likely have to spend more to get a srurdier product.

                  It feels flimsy but it is inexpensive so I can't really complain. It gets quite bright but I I'm not sure if the 70W rating is precise or not. The dimmer works well and the adjustment is smooth. The plastic filter that you can put on the light works well but on mine, it's hard to put on and remove so that it stays locked.I like the fact that one can have a bright light in a very portable design. It's not great as a main light but for fill or just as a makeshift wide beam flashlight for urban exploration, it's great. Let's see if it will hold up with use.

                    i wasnt sure about purchasing this but it had a lot of great reviews so i tried it out.

                    it feels cheap and light but it does an amazing job lighting the subject (with a great camera that already has great lighting) but what it adds is amazing light to the face to replace unwanted shadows, and the dial is great for adjusting the amount of light.

                    it does feel unstable in the mount but there may be an option to tighten it that im not aware of. i didnt read any manuals or instructions. i dont plan on running with it so im not worried about it falling off.

                    i think it is amazing for the price!

                    I bought this product as a gift and wish I would have been looking to purchase one earlier. Super pleased with its performance and quality. Throws enough light to overcome harsh shadowing without blowing out your image. Battery life is equally impressive. Recommend.

                        I have had this light for quite some time and as far as illumination is quite good. But the battery compartment cover is so thin and unset that the pressure of the batteries inside will make it pop open. It needs to have an sturdier case.

                          We use this product on an L-bracket, as our video camera does not have a shoe on it. It provides strong light, and we enjoy that we can dim it, as the full-strength can be quite bright. I also enjoy the different filters, and use the yellow one to make the light softer.

                            I use this for lighting with film. The dimming capability makes blending the light on the subject very easy will still making them pop-out from the background. The only thing you need to be careful with is that it is made out of very light/simple plastic, so it can easily break.

                              Used this for 2 events and the dimming dial ceased to operate, so I had to tape a diffuser on it to tone down the lighting!

                              Works great as a fill light when it works correctly, but when the dial cease to operate, it really put a hamper on me. Had to have an assistant hold at a distance to give me the lighting I was after.

                              I bought this LED light recently to replace an expensive light and battery belt. I was amazed at the quality and brightness of this light...plus, it's dimmable...something my previous light wasn't.

                              No heat, lite in weight, quality LED light...what more can you ask!

                              Buy it...you won't regret it.

                              Previously I had a 20W Sony on camera light. I was feeling annoying by guests walking around with my bright light on my camera, especially for interviews with parents guests. I felt I needed to go dimmable. While the dimmable is great for interviews, and possibly with close ups of dance floor, it ultimately gives a bit of the same bright, narrow source, although the LEDs are spread out appeallingly. Comes with an indoor & outdoor plastic screen, tbh I like the daylight balance blueish hue as I find that's a nicer color than tungsten/peachy. Cool to have the choice tho.

                              I had to shoot a wedding and reception last weekend. It's been a while since I've covered a reception, but I know how reception caterers love to dim the lights for a romantic atmosphere. My older video lights ate batteries for lunch, and in the past LED lights were very pricey. Now these 70 watt equivalent lights are available for just under $[$].00. I ordered 2 (2 cameras). They worked perfectly adding enough light in the darkest dancing environment to enable good clean video capturing with my Canon HF-G10. Surprisingly, they did not seem obtrusive, no one seemed to notice we were using lights. I was pleasantly surprised.

                                Running camera for an outdoor show you always need light for night recoveries and pre/post hunt footage. This LED-70 by Bescor is fabulous! Runs on 4 AA batteries so no extra power is consumed by your camera, plus the dimmer switch is AWESOME! Mounts easily to your camera or an additional bracket (sold separately) and includes 2 filters. LOVE this product!
