I ended up returning this because it wasn't going to serve my purposes, but it's really well built and very versatile.

This light has many different features that make it versatile for different kinds of photo or video shoots. The app makes changing settings very easy and quick. Only wish was the light was a tad bigger. Would recommend to any photographer or videographer looking for a on board camera light!

Amazing little light

By James

This has got to be one of the niftiest photo accessories I have purchased in years. This light does everything; color temperature adjustment, RGB, power settings, special effects. And it has a terrific little display on the side that tells you everything you need to know. The physical power switch is great so that it doesn't get accidentally turned on in my bag. The only negative is that is comes with a pouch that is intended to hold the light and a silicon diffuser. The pouch is literally 4x the size of the light. I don't really think that the diffuser needs protection. The pouch turns a really sleek little package into a bulky blob that detracts from the package overall.

For such a price, they could put at least a Hot Shue adapter in the kit

Perfect little light for low budget production

love the magnetic feature, it sticks to a lot of places and adds fill or brings up the exposure tiny bit which is super convenient. Especially useful in low-budget production.
