      Comments about Frezzi Dimmer Mini-Fill On-Camera Light with Cigarette Plug Connector:

      Note that I bought this light with the 100 watt bulb. This product page is for the 75-watt version. This light is amazing. It is incredibly powerful. I use it for overnight news video of car crashes and such. I am able to light up a scene from as far as 20-25 feet back and get decent video even in pitch black environments with my Canon XL-2 or Canon XH-A1s. My only problem with this light is that it is too bright for interviews at about 2-3 feet away, even when dimmed to about 10%. Dimming past 10% results in an orangish color that Frezzolini claims doesn't exist due to their circuitry, but it does. If you're looking mostly for close-up interview-type shots, do NOT get the 100-watt bulb. Perhaps the 75 or 50 watt would be better. I use this nearly every night and it has never failed me. I've never blown a bulb, the entire unit has never came loose or fallen apart in any way. It is very well built. This thing bounces around in my trunk with my camera gear 24/7 no matter where I go, and I'm shocked I've never blown the bulb. I've used this in the worst pouring rain you can imagine (only the camera had a cover, not the light) and even falling snow that built-up on top and it still runs strong. It does get hot to the touch but cools off within a minute or two. It doubles as a great hand warmer during the winter nights. Most of the news crews out here in San Diego use this light with the Anton Bauer power tap. I use two large Bescor battery packs and even with every-night use, can last a month on just the 2 packs. I think this light is pretty good at it's power usage. I will be getting the Lowel ID-Light soon as it is not only dimmable (like this light), but also focusable! But if you don't need the focus feature, I recommend this light 100%.

      Comments about Frezzi Dimmer Mini-Fill On-Camera Light with Cigarette Plug Connector:

      This little light is build like a truck and will last you 10 years+, it's no surprise it's the industry standard for the news guys.

      I've been shooting with Frezzi forever and they never let me down. The output on this is like no other and BLOWS AWAY any LED product I've seen. The color from the lamp is warm and natural. I use it for still photography as well.

      When you need a lot of light, go for the Frezzi!

        Comments about Frezzi Dimmer Mini-Fill On-Camera Light with Cigarette Plug Connector:

        I intended to use this light with a DSLR for video recording. The light output from this unit was less than I expected from a 100 watt light source. The light pattern is not as even and smooth as I wanted and the build quility is below what I would expect for this price. The dimmer switch works well with a smooth transition, but does not compensate for other issues. I'm returning the unit.

          So small and light but so big in power. The light itself can light up a dark
          If you wish. And my favorite thing is the adjustable knob for quickly dimming. I use at receptions for extra light on details, dramatic looks for dancing andgreat backlit couple shots during bridal session. Bescor battery lasts as long as I need it. Soooo glad I finally bit the bullet and bought one. It's a great price for it's quality.

            To diffuse the light for HD or windscreen format, the Frezzi accessory item 96212 model MFBD-S is a must, this has a special flip up diffuser that provides a smooth wide beam spread for all Frezzi Mini-Fills.

            Comments about Frezzi Dimmer Mini-Fill On-Camera Light with Cigarette Plug Connector:

            I'm a professional videographer who does weddings and freelance videos. This light is perfect for me and my constantly moving, set up on the fly job requirements.

            The light is very bright so the dimmer is a must! But even with the light dimmed all the way down, hot spots can still occur so I definitely recommend adding the soft box attachment.

            Overall the compact size and light weight make it convenient for my smallish camera and provides more than enough to get the job done no matter how dark the location.

              Every great thing you've ever heard about this tiny light is true. It might be small but it's a Goliath. What a punch this thing wallops. And build quality is excellent. If you need an awesome on-camera light, you must consider this. On a light stand, as part of a larger accompaniment, it's pretty decent too. Having to have a battery belt or shoulder battery is the only downside. But that goes with the territory with something this powerful.
