This PL160 Dedicated Dual Flash (For Nikon) from Polaroid has full TTL dedication, plus a continuous LED light, making this a terrific light if you're shooting still photos and video, since you don't need to switch back and forth between flash and continuous light. The flash has a guide number of 148' (45 m) at 85mm/ISO 100, vari-power settings of 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16, and built-in "self-storing" diffuser and reflective panels. The flash head tilts and swivels and features an auto zoom function that sets the flash zoom for the focal length of the lens (24-85 mm). Recycling time is between 0.5 and 9.0 seconds, depending on the power setting. An auto sleep mode means less charging time and more shooting time. The Dual Flash operates on 4x easy-to-find AA batteries.

          Comments about Polaroid PL160 Dedicated Dual Flash (For Nikon):

          I notice that the results are really variable and the photos are often overexposed,especially when the subject is against a dark background. I have not yet tried the LED light for video. The contruction quality is fairly mediocre, so longevity might be an issue. All-in-all I am not too happy with the product. However, I might grow to like it if I can figure out how to tweak the settings to give decent results.
