      -I like this LED light. It's bright, set in an horizontal case which I like (to spread the light sideways), can be stacked on top of each other with a locking click.

      -What I don't like is that it is bit too blue-needs to be color corrected with gel for accurate color.
      -This does not have to be done if you set up and test white balance beforehand for mixed lighting.
      -I bought 2 when they were on sale before the holidays--I don't think the normal asking price is worth it.
      -The other complaints about the battery are not valid. You do have to push them in securely to make sure they snap in.
      -The construction is plastic and is just OK. DO NOT DROP.

          I using this LED Video light for the wedding photography. it's good for indoor or night time lighting. but it doesn't have enough light for using under the sun or during the day time at outdoor. also, it does't have any switch adjust the light beam between 5800-6000K. but it has two attach filter for change the color tem.

              I intended to use this for some outdoor portrait work. The light is too powerful...even at a low setting...to look at comfortably. Am currently searching for a soft box that I can fit to it to soften considerably. It fits nicely to a hot shoe and has a good range of motion.

              This is a great live event light! It really throws a lot of light and is very light weight. I also have the problem with the battery falling off serveral times. The battery still works, but is slighty loose now (first use!).

                    I use it for making videos and snapshots for posting with my promotional firm's press releases on the web.

                    The unit throws plenty of light for my needs, and when needed, it has a couple of filters. The construction is good, the battery lasts long enough for my needs, and it is light enough to use the hotshoe option.

                    I have not yet encountered any drawbacks.

                        I though a lot before I bought this light from B&H of ofcourse and I think i got the right one, it is a little bit big and the light is very bright but that is exactly what I was looking for most of my shoot are weddings and I did shot 2 weddings reception and it worked perfect I have to say it get a little extra heavy but it is totally worthy, I used also as fill light mounted in a light stand and it did the job so I would recommend it if you are in the market for one.
