          Good light for the money - can't expect every bell and whistle at this price point. But, it's a pain to keep 8 AA's around whenever you want to use it. (Rechargeable or not...) Wish it had an internal rechargeable pack. Would have paid $30-40 more if it did. Next step up would be to have color temperature dial instead of switching filter (no in-between blended daylight-tungsten color options).

                Comments about Bescor FP-180 Bi-Color Dimmable On-Camera Light:

                As compared with the previous on camera light we purchased from b&h, this is a much better buy. mainly because of the battery type used. the aa battery set up is a lot more logical from this type of light than the Sony NP series batteries. They are enclosed and much less weight on top of an already heavy filming apparatus. The brightness of the light as works just as good if not better than the previous light and its smaller size ,aces it a win win situation as compared with before. I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy an on camera light that only allows the Sony series big bulky batteries. the prongs that the battery plugs into are much too fragile. As well with the aa batteries you can just have an extra set with you instead of waiting for the Sony battery to charge. So far so good!
