Good little light, but has some green in it...,
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)
This is a great light for the price. It's pretty darn bright. The only down sides are the lack of a DC plug for possible plug-in use and the fact that it has a some green in the light. They DO provide a minus green filter (plus red), but this cuts the light output. To keep the color temperature correct and not have a lot of light loss I just cut a small piece of 1/4 minus green gel and put that permanently in front of the LEDs.

I didn't consciously notice the green until you mentioned it, but I've been correcting it in post production. Thanks for the tip to correct that!

Do you mean that it needs an AC plug? If not - then how many volts DC does it need and where do you get the transformer to run it off household (AC) current?

If there is another color light in the scene (e.g., daylight from a window or tungsten light bulbs), you will only be able to correct for one light source in post. The other light sources will then be off. The only way to handle this situation is by changing the color of your camera light to match the ambient light. Of course, if you are filming in otherwise darkness, this is not an issue.
