Summary: There are several lights on Amazon and those listed as 3W can be found cheaper. I suspected that a 3W light would be too weak so I found one that did not have 3W in the title.

Summary: I would give a 5 star rating but the connection of the light with the camera sometimes goes off! This is not happening during the recording but when you open the view window to start the camera, after the camera had stopped for more than 10-15 minutes.
Summary: I bought a Sony HDR-SR11 10.2-MP 60GB High Definition Hard Drive Handycam! I bought the Sony HVL-HIRL IR NightShot and Video Light to use with my camera! It gave the camera night vision capability, as far as the IR light would shine out into the darkness! I am very happy with it!
Summary: Didn't fit my camera. Didn't work. Contacted seller and was told to try again because it should work fine. I had multiple people look at, including local camera store. Light was dim...didn't help at all. Bought it for my SONY MiniDV. Been in the box every since.
This is great for night and dark recording; especially in total darkness!

Summary: This little device can easily extend your night time range (in total darkness) to at least 60 feet! The intensity can also be modified so your don't have to worry about glare when recording up close. Well worth it!
