CameraBright CBX1 overview

  • 1Description

CameraBright's X1-R Digital Video Camera Light is for today's digital still cameras that have the ability to take excellent videos and movies. The problem is that the unit is only provided with a flash unit at best, which only works for a split-second. When taking videos, you need a light to come on and stay on. CameraBright lights are designed to turn on and stay on while you take your video. The advanced technology built into every CameraBright light ensures continuous, simple, single button operation; push the button once to turn the unit on, and push the button again to turn the unit off. If you forget to turn the unit off, it will turn itself off in a matter of minutes, thereby ensuring a great video next time.

Up to 3 units can be stacked for increased lighting for a wide variety of subjects, and X1-R's can be mounted on tripods. Battery life for these video lights is approx. 4 hours.

Take better pictures or videos at night
CameraBright light's advanced white light LED technology allows a fuller spectrum of light to illuminate your exciting moments in low or no-light conditions.
Connects to virtually any camera or camcorder
If your camera or camcorder can connect to a tripod, then it can connect to a CameraBright light and still connect to your tripod.
Reduces Redeye
Some of today's modern cameras have a small intermittent light that comes on just before taking a picture, which is intended to reduce redeye. This current solution is typically inadequate and less effective with larger groups or longer distances. CameraBright lights work with your camera's existing technology and almost entirely eliminate redeye in most cases. Say good bye to retouching your pictures after they have been developed.
Improved picture quality with your existing flash
If you are using your camera in a low or no-light situation with a CameraBright light, you can "see" what you are taking a picture of, therefore eliminating the need to take many pictures hoping to get everybody in the shot or hoping they were all looking at the camera. Use the CameraBright light to set your picture up, and when you snap the perfect picture, the flash will go off just as normal.
Easy on, Easy off
With a simple thumbwheel mounted on the back of the unit, simply rotate one way to connect to your camera or camcorder, and then rotate the other way to disconnect. But with CameraBright light's compact design and huge benefits, you will never want to take it off again.

    X1-R Digital/Video Camera Light (Silver) is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I like to take low-light pictures using ambient and run into a problem when it's too dark to clearly focus. This little unit is easy to turn on, give enough light to focus, and easy to turn off. For that much, it does the job well enough, although the price is a bit high if you intend to use it just for focusing. I recommend this unit for fill-lighting only for small point-and-shoot cameras. Since the unit attaches to the underside of the camera, my hands kept blocking the light while I focused when it was attached to my D-SLR. Also, the screw is all plastic on the basic model, and I recommend against using it only with small and light cameras on tripod.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware...NOT a strong screw! Just got the CameraBright light today in the mail. Put it on my Nikon P5100 turned the screw nice and snug and...broke that little thing right off! Now I have to go and try to get the remaining piece out of my camera!This is a good idea, the LEDs are bright but not a very high quality product overall. Expertise: Amateur Photographer- intermediate Problems Encountered: Not a quality screw- broke that little thing right off while screwing it into my camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for any camcorder I bought this for no light video recording. It does good and am thinking of adding another to really lighting up any subject. This is for adding lighting to low light or no light. The ease of adding this to my camcorder is impressive, as I screwed it on and have left it on as it's size is relative to my Sony DCRXX-44 I have not used it enough to tell you about the battery life, but it uses 3 cr-2032 which is pretty standard with small flat watch like batteries.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from X1-R Digital video light This product only barely finds a good use. It's beam is pretty narrow and bright, or off color. Perhaps best used to light objects, or areas further away because close up it makes itself very noticable. It's like a bright bike flashlight. Clever mounting mechanism works well. The on/off switch is easy to trigger which could be a problem when packed away and gets a slight bump and turns on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Design/Lacks Durability I purchased this light as an accessory to be used with flip style camera, Samsung E-10, for low light shooting. Illumination not bad at all, but two complaints. After a week of use the plastic nipple broke off and for some reason the light often turns itself off after only a few minutes. I do like that it can be mounted to a tripod. Needs better build if you are going to take it on and off mounts. Nice idea, didn't hold up in the field.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from read reviews closely CONS: Not much light output or range. 2-5 ft. max. OK for closeup only. Unit will turn left/right. PROS: light weight, small easy use, low price. I would not buy another and wish I had'nt bought this one....
