This PL160 Dedicated Dual Flash (For Sony) 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 Sony):

    I use this flash as my main light when I shoot nightlife or general outdoors photography as a fill light. The Video light is bright and perfect, but I'd suggest a bracket because the lens gets in the way at low focal lengths. Also the cover pops of the video light easily, making it simple to add light filters and diffusers.

    On a side note though, The product brief says "Built-In Optical Slave" and "A built-in optical slave function allows you to use this flash off-camera." but the product I received (Polaroid PL160DS) does not have that function. Really this was the reason I bought the product, and while its a great flash, its kind of annoying that I can't slave it. :/ that's why I gave it 3 stars. otherwise it would be 5.
