Chromo 160 LED Video Light. -Dirt Cheap

Chromo 160 LED Video Light
This video light is the cheapest 160 LED light I've seen so far.
It runs between $21.00- $26.00.
I was looking at the YN-160 and CN-160 and the Neewer version of this style
light. The price on those run from $31.00 to $50.00.
This light appears to be just as good.
The main difference I've seen is the small on the Chromo appears to be slightly smaller
and it does not include a holder for the difusers.
I picked this light up primamrily to see if I want to use these for video lihgting.
The quality per price aspect is good. I like the Chromo so far.
I plan on buying 3 of these.
Plus, 3 reflector/ umbrellas for 3 point lighting set up.
Battery powered and portable is something I like about these lights.
The light output is nice and bright.
Heres some Specs:
*Works with Panasonic CGR-D16S, Sony NP-FH70, NP-FM55H, NP-F550 and AA batteries.
*Battery Capacity Check button with 4-LEDs. 4 LEDS means full battery, 1-LED means battery low.
*Three filters included- a white filter to soften or diffuse the light,one warm / orange filter to reduce the color temp.
and one pink filter.
*Dimmable Switch to be used for on/off and adjusting brightness.
*Hot shoe to attach to video camera or camera rig.
Overall, the price for this light is worth it.
It's bright, dimmable, portable, and cheap!
