Summary: I chose this rating because the value of this video light isn't worth the price. At 20 watts, the light is pretty bright but for a over $60 you might as well buy an adjustable LED video light that is much brighter. This light is not much better than the Sony HVL 10NH 10W video light.
Summary: I recently bought a couple cheap LED panels for low light still photography. The long and short of it is that they are unusable. The light without a filter is cooler than day light (5600k or higher) and the light with a filter is GREEN. The color just does NOT work at all for my application.
Summary: I've only had the light for a day and I quickly snapped on the battery and it looks like a great light. BUT my review is for the bundle... don't do it!! a) The recommended NPF970 is gigantic!! As big as the light. It works and probably lasts a long time but it's really heavy and seems like overkill.
Compatible to all Sony Camcorder Models with Hotshoe.

Summary: This is the best video light ever, that Sony made on the market since the first one was released in 2001 I use it in the darkness & it's works really great when going on night sceans in the dark but, you have to use the toggle switch to use the 10-Watt or 20-Watt bulb selectior.
Summary: This isn't a bad little semi-pro camera light for the price. It works pretty well for up close interviews, but not so well beyond 8 or 10 feet or so. It would be nice to have it on a swivel and have a dimmer knob, but then it would be a lot more than $75, now wouldn't it!
Summary: light has alot of power in 20 watt mode, but is very hard on subject, a diffuser is needed. Also, it only lasts bout 3 hours max, so ur gonna need an extra battery, which r pretty expensive for it....
