    This is a neat little light for the low price. I purchased three. The price tells you that it's not too sturdy and probably won't stand up under field use, including little children.

    Despite its' limitations, the best use (for me) is in the studio. It works as a small, hide-able accent light if it can be close enough to what it accents. (It's not too bright!) The main use, along with other small LED lights and an occasional strobe, is in the macro lab. These can be mounted very close to the subject without cooking it. One can be a main, the other two as various fills or backlight. Hint: put a ¼-20x1" or 2" screw in the shoe and clamp that in a three-finger (test tube) clamp. This provides a very versatile mount. It can also be mounted on a light-weight amateur pocket tripod or similar if you have the room.

    The kit includes a battery charger and a spare battery. Very thoughtful.

    On the down side, exposures can run over 1 second each. Since the set-up should be rigid, this won't be much of a problem.

    The LED-36 Video Light Kit by Vidpro works functionally as it should. However, the design of the connection between the shoe foot and the body of the light needs lots of improvement. When I first tried to install it on the mounting arm it broke the foot off of the light completely just trying to slide it on. A three dollar tube of epoxy reattached it to the light and it now works as intended so far. For a lite weight unit it puts out a fair amount of light. Just enough to fill the shadows on my videos.

    This small light is great for adding extra light while shooting video in a low light situation and add extra light to aide with flash on photos. The two hour battery life is good as long as you have access to electricity to recharge.

          Very bright LED on-camera light with cold shoe adapter. Comes with two long lasting batteries and convenient charger. Also comes with shoe extension adapter. Very good price! Great starter kit for up and comers.

                Very nice product. Compact, very bright, comes with a compact charger and two batteries with about 1 hour use time per battery. Has a decent bracket for semi-remote mounting on a camera or tripod. It is designed for a video camera but can be can be used as a area or back fill light for photographs. Hey, can also use it as a flashlight, works great.

                  I do not use this light for video, so I can not comment about that aspect but I am sure by the amount of the output it would be perfectly suitable for that.
                  I use this light for fill in photos and believe it for illuminating my art work on display. During opening reception at a charity art this light(I have 2) came in very handy. I mounted on a long painted stick attached from above.
                  Puts out even light, but was a little cool for my taste.
                  I like that 2 batteries are included and last a fair amount of time. Do not drop the light, looks like they would crack easy. For the money you can't beat it and these look suspiciously like the Bescor models on sale for more than double the price.

                    amazing what a difference this small unit can do for your video camera in lowlight situations. A dark closet becomes completely lit with this light. Dark hallways, odd basement lighting are no longer a problem with this light. Well worth the inexpensive price. I do wish it had detailed that the Canon HFM50 (and all canons) have a MINI advanced shoe, so I had to purchase an adaptor to get this light to fit it. Search around. Some of the adaptors add inches to the height which I did not prefer. Did find a lower profile one that will work well. Replaceable batteries won't drain your camcorder battery pack either.

                      It is compact, light and gives me enough light. I was looking to do some amateur video around my house with my cats, nothing fancy just for me and it work perfect. My camera is very cheap and it has problems indoors. The image turns very dark and fuzzy. With this light it came out perfect as if I were shooting with a more expensive one!
                      If you are looking for some home video to keep your memories without tons of equipment this light will do.

                            This is a very bright and essentially good little light but I was disappointed it doesn't attach to the shoe on top of the Canon Vixia HF M500 camera. It probably doesn't attach to any in this line either. Nevertheless, I bought 4 of these.

                                    I purchased this to use on my Nikon D90. I thought for the price it was worth the try. I am glad i did, well worth the money. I use indoors mainly to shoot video of family. It gives a good range of light for this without being too hard, as long as youre not too close to your subject, i get very good results in the 8-15 foot range. Bottom line, glad i bought it, good light for a good price.

                                          This is a really great low cost lighting solution. Provides ample light for a DSLR or small prosumer camera. Kit includes multiple batteries that have a fairly long run time.

                                            this flash light is nice 4 it's price' easy to use and works fine as long as u don't expect too much from it. there is no control over it's angle or amount of light. as for my intensions - i'll use it for simple documentary use but not for scenes or interviews that require planning and designing. bottom line - as i said - for it's price it is satisfying

                                            It provides better than adequate light for the faces nd subjects.
                                            Nothing. It does as advertized. If you need more light stack another on top or to the side
