              Comments about Bigblue VL1300 LED Video Light:

              What amazed me was how much light this item produces. It doesn't take long to charge and the 3 different light settings help. I primarily use this light in the pool and at first it didn't appear to work that well until a subject crossed in front. I can't provide lighting length, but it works well for underwater photography and video. The only thing I would have liked is if the focus of the light was adjustable.
