Sturdier than I expected.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NEEWER® 160 LED CN-160 Dimmable Ultra High Power Panel Digital Camera / Camcorder Video Light, LED Light for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Panasonic,SONY, Samsung and Olympus Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
I recently got this light to take with me while shooting candid portraits at events where lighting is less than optimal. The throw is great for the price, the filters are decent, and the dimmer is really convenient. The build is very cheap plastic that feels like it would break if you dropped it. However, that's pretty much what I was expecting at this price.
The hotshoe mount is a little worrisome. It feels like it could crack and become useless if you weren't careful. I took out the joint-tightening screw that came with it and replaced it with an extra GoPro mount tightener I had laying around. It is extremely sturdy now and will NOT flop around like other people have said theirs will. Sure, it would be better to get this tightness right out of the box, but I spent under $40 on it so I'll take what I can get.
