    Yongnuo YN-216 reviews

    YN-216 LED On-Camera Light (5500K) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light for great price! This was a good buy! Very bright for its size. The color is daylight and may have a slight magenta shift to my eye. The bottom angle adjustment attachment is a little flimsy. I try to carefully adjust it when I need to so it lasts awhile. The filters took some time figuring out but once you learn how they fit it's pretty simple to put them on. This does not ship with a power source! You'll need to by your own. I got some heavy duty NP-F batteries and this sucker lasts several hours! It seemed that the light started to dim when the battery got low. Sorry, no official tests or numbers. I will likely buy another one in the near future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning When You Turn It On! This light stunned me when I turned it on. Should have turned it more away from my face. Lots of light output from a tiny package. The metal construction is stouter than the plastic unit it replaced. Or, the body of the light is metal, but the adjustable fitting for the cam cold shoe is plastic and doesn't give a feeling of confidence. This is another one of those pieces of lightweight gear coming on the market that do the job well and at low cost. It will probably need to be replaced more ofthen than a more expensive unit, but even buying two will be cheaper than some on-cam lights I've owned. Being a new unit, I've not had any problems with LED or control. Time will tell on that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel light I bought this light for use during mobile photography classes and general travel. While not as compact as a panel style, I am really impressed with the optimization of size, weight, brightness, and cost. The color filters are a little tricky to apply, and I see almost no benefit to the frosted one unless you're looking for catchlights up close. Still, they're nice to have. The cold shoe mount is reasonable, but made of plastic with a 1/4-20 metal female thread. So far, I'm using that with a stud adapter on small tripods, but it should work fine on a flash mount as well. The knob is also plastic - I'd recommend not using it too much as it feels like it may strip easily if you forget to loosen it first. Power selection is fantastic, if a little wonky now and then. The dial is digital rather than indexed which means if you spin too quickly you can get jitter when dialing the brightness up and down. When you switch to fine control, you get FINE CONTROL. It takes maybe three full revolutions to drop 1/3 EV. Perhaps this is too fine, but I'd rather have that than too coarse. I feel like the barn doors should have been made removable, and I'm concerned that they'll eventually break because the hinges are plastic. Take care when using them. But the fact that is has doors is awesome. It makes flagging and gelling much easier with a little gaff tape. I haven't run it from batteries, yet, but I'm very impressed that it can take three different power sources - from Sony style NF batteries to a DC wall supply to AAs. This alone puts it above most panel lights in its class that only take the Sony or wall power. Even adding the weight of batteries, this thing is light enough to tape to a broom handle if you need some reach, and at a street price of about $60, you aren't going to be too upset if you damage or lose it. I can imagine a small army of these things for painting night scenes. The things I would like to see improved are: Weatherproofing Easier filter attachment Removable doors with better hinges Metal mounting hardware (or glass-reinforced nylon instead of injection molded plastic)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic affordable light I've been using this light a few weeks now and this is just a fantastic versatile light with good color. I use it as a handy hair or background light. I've even attached it straight to my camera with reasonable results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bright light for a small price This is a very nice light; small, two types of batteries can be used or AC adapter sold separately, fine & course light output control and four filters. You could do a portrait shoot with two or three of these lights.
