Not been impressed by this unit. No angle adjustment on the light and a pretty unusable light source, no matter which filter is put in front of it, IMO.

ok, maybe don't buy it then.

I hardly do any night stuff, but wanted something and not too pricey.

I put together a comparison video of 6 video lights

I would say, go with VL-10 if you are with really tight budget (as you can use the same battery).

SWIT 2010 is good too. But with that price, you can get the Comer 900 light which is in the $200 to $300 range. But you will have to get different type of batteries.

XH-A1 On camera light! question.

Hey There, i'll be shooting a wedding soon and i guess i'll need a light on the top of the camera, could you recommend a decent inexpensive light about 100-200 $.

Thank you.

Arthur.

Hi Arthur, I've just now merged together some 14 or 15 discussions we already had going on this topic, so it's like you've just received 100+ replies, but they all appear *before* your question instead of after. Hope this helps,
