    FP-180 Bi-Color Dimmable On-Camera Light is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works great thus far 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light - lots of batteries 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).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good output for a small light My first impressions after getting the Bescor FP-180 out of the box was that it was cheaply made. I feel that I need to be extra careful when I handle and use this light. Also find that it takes me more time to mount the light. Poor design on the foot. When shooting an event and the lights are low, I also find that I fumble around trying to turn this light on or adjusting the light intensity.On the positive side it does seem to have some decent output of light for a small compact unit. It does take 8 AA batteries to operate which make the light a little heavy but, I like the idea of using AA instead of the Sony type battery.I purchased the light during a B&H daily deal for $ so, although the construction could be better, not bad for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good at macro photography I am photographing up close transparent objects and this works great. Having both daylight and tungsten really is a plus for something this inexpensive.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for price I bought this for $ during a promotional sale. For the price, it is very decent for news/documentary run-&-gun style shoots. The filters actually give nice diffusion and it's nice to have variable temperature colors. The build is plasticky, but the biggest drawback is that it requires 8 AA batteries..which means you need to pack a ton of batteries if you need spares for a long shoot. The cold shoe is also very cumbersome. Best use is if you need to travel light and work fast.
