            Comments about Sima SL-10HD Universal HD Video Light with Dimmer Control:

            I use a 100 watt dimmable Lowel ID-light on my JVC HM790 at work. For close in SOT's, dimming down produces a very orange cast, which requires a dedicated 2500k white balance setting. I bought this little Sima specifically for it's size and native color temperature. Bone stock it provides a 3600k light source, which allows enough illumination for my f10@2000 JVC to be at 0db gain with 1/60th second shutter. I popped open the case (simple) and cut a piece of gel to place under the front lens to bring the color temperature to an exact 3200k, which brought the brightness down slightly. At 1/60 I must kick up the gain to 9db, but 1/30 shutter still allows 0db. All things considered, in an ENG environment when you want to run up to someones face and get them to start spilling the beans on the burning building in the background, the minimal illumination provided makes the light less distracting and intimidating to the witness. At 3600k stock, it really isn't too far off to really be apparent, and setting 3400k preset would allow a pretty good average for your incadecent and this LED. One benefit to the low setting is that you can bump up the gain at night, and your interviewee will not be blown out and you will be able to see the background as well. The included bracket is nice and light. I actually have it bolted to the 1/4-20 hole on the bottom of my ID-Light and jutting forward, hanging under the bar. Stays on the camera all the time, doesn't get in the way of the big light. Couldn't be happier with this tiny cheap product. Way to go Sima for not giving us another 6000k LED!

                  Bought two of these with included bracket. "Dimmable" is not quite accurate as there only two settings, low and high, but for the price it cannot be beaten.

                    Ecelent light to use as a near ilumination device when you record a person. You can use it as a fill light for photos or video also.

                      Not enough light does not work for me and it may not be the condition you need either. This light just is not that powerful. Videos will not be high-enough-quality if you did not have sufficient light for the sensors to pick it up, yet, I cannot say that this product will cast light for a great distance. It is most likely best for very close up recording like a few feet, and you will likely need another source of light, perhaps, a couple low-watt fluorescent lights on a two different stands to really light up the subject? Maybe consider something else, a different product if you need it to be the main source of light.

                      Comments about Sima SL-10HD Universal HD Video Light with Dimmer Control:

                      The light has a description that made it seem like a lot more than it actually is. The description has since been corrected. Since it wasn't what I expected I haven't really used the light but have done a few quick tests to see if it would be at all useful.
                      It generates a rather narrow been of light and will illuminate about a 2 foot diameter circle from about 6 feet away. Farther out brightness drastically drops off and farther away than 6 feet the illumination provided becomes almost useless. I'd say it's bright enough to illuminate a small area up to about 6 feet away but for anything larger or farther away it won't do the job. (I have a 5 LED bicycle light that's easily twice as bright and shines much farther though it is of course also much more focused)
                      It also seems to drain the battery fairly quickly. After just a few minutes of testing the brightness dropped to the point where there was no notable difference between the middle and 100% settings. I used rechargeable batteries so this might be due to the batteries used, but I experienced this twice with different sets of batteries. Overall I wouldn't recommend this light - it's very cheap but it's better to spend a few bucks more and get something that's actually useful.
