Flashmate F-160 LED Video Light from GiSTEQ is a lightweight, powerful on-camera continuous LED source that uses special Matrix Lighting technology to light your subject evenly, edge-to-edge without hot spots. Perfect for camcorders or use with your DSLR, the F-160 dims from 100 - 0% and has enough battery options to ensure that you'll never run out of juice. You can use readily available AA batteries in the body of the unit without an adapter and switch at will to your Sony-type NP-F50, NP-FM55H or NP-FH60 camcorder batteries. Another unique feature is the ability to gang up to nine F-160s together to form a large panel.

The F-160 comes with a white diffuser to expand its 60 degree beam angle to 25 degrees and a CTO conversion filter to change your output to 3,200K.

          Comments about GiSTEQ Flashmate F-160 LED Video Light:

          This light has a very nice and soft spread of light with the included diffusion panels. The only downfall is the mount, the light has fallen out of the included cold shoe adapter multiple times when my camera was being hand held. I have dropped this light from waist height three times now, onto a carpeted floor and there has been no actual damage.

                Just received this last week and the weather hasn't cooperated yet, so I don't have field experience to pass along. Nice construction and controls, filters snap on and off with no worries of breaking the plastic tabs. Depending on how often I find my self using it I may purchase rechargeable NiMH or Lithium batteries.After using it for awhile I may return and increase the rating to 5 stars.

                Comments about GiSTEQ Flashmate F-160 LED Video Light:

                Quality is good, normal for the price. The light is strong and because of it it consumes batteries very fast. i would suggest to buy the rechargeable battery.

                    Great light this is adjustable. Works great for Super 8 and 16mm home-movie style filmmaking.

                    I'm not positive that the color or intensity is quite right. Once I have more results I may update my review. But, initial reaction is that it's well built for the price and with the included diffusion filter it covers with a fairly soft light that's not TOO intrusive.

                          I use Video Light to record social events, I think that is excelent because the ilumination is better that others and use less power batery.

                                    Our young daughter Sophia is "The Ghost Host" on live paranormal. She does live broadcasts and we really needed a light for night time interviews so we purchased the Flashmate F 160, and we love it. The filter it comes with really softens the lighting. I recommend this light for anyone looking for one the price was right also.

                                        This has been a great addition to the media equipment at South Side High School. Several students were shooting dark interviews in the hallways. We like this light because you can control the level of brightness and it works well with rechargeable batteries.

                                          Good sturdy light for low price. I say "sturdy" because it fell off twice. The hot shoe connector that came with the light does not work with my Sony Z1U and I had to use another. I tightened the light on as much as possible, but it works it's way loose in about 10 minutes.
