question

There appear to be 4-5 buttons on the back but I can't see what the legends are for these. What do these buttons do?
Asked by: Mark
On the rear of the lamp, the large button/dial on the left is the on/off and brightness control. The M button toggles between Manual brightness and Auto brightness. The Bat button shows the amount of battery strength. The SOS button starts a SOS signal cycle. (You never know when you will get marooned in the middle of the ocean on a movie shoot) The C button toggles between coarse and fine control of the brightness dial.

question

curious if this would be good for subjects 20 feet away recording video?
Asked by: donald
Depends on your project and what camera you are using. If you need a lot of diffused light I would not suggest this light. If your camera does well in low light and you're looking to add some highlights or backlights it's great.
