Pros: Liked the design, magnetic backing and small arm.

Cons: I went to shoot at a clients house and needed a small light. Took out the light and couldn't get it to turn on. Checked batteries and they worked fine. When I did get it to turn on it only functioned as a strobe light. You get what you pay for I guess.

I understand these are in expensive products but it would be nice to get something from monoprice other than cables that have a quality feel and function.

Truly sorry to hear PID 9878 is not functioning properly. Did it work properly initially? Have you tried using new AA bateries to see if the issue improves? If the issue continues, we do offer a one year warranty on this item. If you would like I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement, which will be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if anything changes or if you would like to proceed with a replacement.

After deciding I needed a small LED light for shooting video, I shopped around and found that these things can get VERY expensive. I found a few affordable ones, but this one impressed me the most. The other ones all seemed to take at least 6 AA batteries, which is ridiculous. This one only takes 4. It is relatively heavy with them in place, but that really should be expected and not a surprise to anyone. It is very compact and easily fits in my equipment bag. The design also seems superior to the cheap, plastic-y other ones I looked at. This is all enclosed and made of sturdy plastic. I love the magnetic filters, they attach firmly and feel very secure. One critique is that if you're using this in close quarters for video (interviews in my case), the light can be rather blinding because neither filter diffuses the light enough, so I put a piece of tissue paper between the LEDs and the filter and voila! I'm awaiting camera flash filters that I'll use instead of the tissue. It can be used as an external flash, however with my camera it completely washes out the pictures. I have no need for an external flash, I was merely testing it out, but keep that in mind if that is what you're looking for. I also just have a Sony Cyber-shot, so it's not really the type of camera that is set up for an external flash. All in all, if you need a small LED panel for video do not pass this up.

Pros: The flash seems to be very well thought-out and constructed. And the price is really right!

Cons: It will only go about as wide as a 35mm lens (on full frame), around 50° or so.

I got this to have either a basic "wink-light" to add catch lights, or as an accessory video light for my Sony A7r. The Sony easily goes to high ISOs so that often a flash is not needed, but for the above purposes this little accessory is just right.

Pros: magnetic filters, continuous light, nice radiation pattern.

Cons: None

I do a lot of closeup work that just does not allow for a traditional flash. I have found this light to work very well as a continuous light source for my DSLR as an alternative to a bounce flash or larger lighting system when just doing closeup work. The adjustable brightness buttons are just in the right place to reach with your right index finger. I've noticed when editing the resulting photos that the light pattern is round and even. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase of this item.
