Just like thousands of other YouTube video producers, I started looking for an introductory lighting solution for my studio recordings. I saw how popular Neewer LED lights were with the CN-160 getting particularly favorable reviews so i picked up the Neewer CN AC to DC power converter to avoid buying batteries by the dozen. The Neewer combination of lights and battery pack solution was a good choice. Paired together, you have consistent, quality, powerful lighting. I paid $32 for the LED light, and $16 for the battery power. I felt the battery pack was a bit expensive, considering that was 50% of the cost of the light rig, but I really dislike buying batteries for high-drain electronic devices. The light powered on instantly when plugged in and runs consistently with no light fluctuation.
The NEEWER 160 LED CN-160 is bright!! I mean, you’re not going to look down the eyeline directly of this guy. I use at about 10% of capacity and its plenty bright for eliminating shadows on my face opposite the other light source. The threading device works great for my desktop stand I borrowed from a microphone.
Neewer CN-AC2 DC 7.5V 2A Switching Power will save you a lot of battery money and stress over the life of your light. It works easily, and immediately. Installation takes twenty seconds and you’re ready to go.
I use this light weekly.
HOWEVER, putting 8 AA batteries in this does not work in the long run. Since this light is constantly eating battery power even when it's turned off, it drains within a few days unless you take the batteries out. In my non-air-conditioned apartment, the brand new duracell batteries were leaking and corroding after 3 days of being left in. I finally gave in and purchased the battery packs for this light, along with charger, which is another $20. It sucks, but I have no regrets since buying the battery packs except feeling cheated on this light.
The pros are that the battery packs last a long time and are easy to snap in and out of place. There are many accessories available such as as softbox (pictured) which you'll need for video as this light, even with the diffuser and dimmed, is pretty harsh. I also bought some colored gel sheets and cut them in the shape of this light to snap into place any time. Overall it's very useful in so many situations, but I just wish they'd include batteries.
The first still is from a night shoot that we had zero ambient light for. I setup a 300W softbox in the back, and lit mostly with about 4-5 of these LED lights. The dimmers are a must, because sometimes you just need to bring out a little texture in the background, but not the whole deal.
The second still shows how the light performs as an edge/back light, I also used a second light to bring out the ambulance, and that's where the dimmer comes in handy. His key was two 300w soft boxes. (I'm not saying this is an amazing lighting setup, but, just wanted to show how they can work in a professional environment - they are so quick and simple.)
The 3rd and 4th stills highlight a cool effect that I just recently started doing, which is pointing these lights right into the camera just off frame to give flares when you're just shooting fairly static and inactive B-roll. With a heavy tungsten light, this would be an arduous ordeal, but, because the lights are so light, portable, and dimmable, it takes a few minutes to get a really cool effect.
If I had to do it over again, I would have sprung for the F970 batts for just a little more peace of mind. I have about six of the F550s, which, are good for about an hour, but, if you're doing any sort of serious shooting and you're trying to move quickly, and then you have to hold up the interview because you need to change out a batt on your lights, that's pretty bad.
Excellent overall though, when used correctly. I have three in my light kit at all times.
After using the light a little longer, I'm still a huge fan for the price. However, I should mention a couple of cons (all of which are minor imo).
1. The tungsten filter is too orange for my tastes. So, if you are relying on this light because of the tungsten filter, you may want to reconsider or make your own filter. There's a nice little slot where the filters slide into.
2. The construction is plastic, however, I wouldn't go so far as to say it's cheap plastic. I feel comfortable with the construction, but don't expect it to be indestructible.
All in all, this light still gets 5 stars.

So, in my quest for decent portable lighting, I've bought the CN160 LED light array and it's absolutely perfect for my needs. With the diffuser filter in place it can evenly illuminate a sufficient area of wall from a distance of perhaps 4-5m to allow me to get decent shots with my 16mm wide-angle lens. Previously my exposures were typically around 1/10th sec at ISO2500 (challenging for hand-held photography, even with an image-stabilised lens); with the light I'm now typically shooting at 1/60th sec at ISO400, which is giving me enormously sharper and less grainy pictures. The light easily mounts on the hotshoe on top of my DSLR (it's a purely mechanical fit - there's no electrical connection between the camera and light), and the light is sufficiently lightweight not to make holding the camera awkward. Most of the time, though, I prefer to have someone hold the light for me rather than mounting it on the camera.
For power, I bought the matching Neewer® (2 Pack) 2600mAh NP-F550/570/530 Replacement Battery+Dual Charger for Sony HandyCams, Neewer Nanguang CN-160, CN-216, CN-126 and other LED On-Camera Video Lights Which Using NP-F550 which works very well. Each battery will power the light at full intensity for around 90 minutes before the brightness starts to fall off. Given that I turn the light off when I'm not actually shooting, the two batteries will easily last me through a whole day of photography. Using the alternative power source of 6 AA batteries should last considerably longer than the NP-F550 does, but I find the NP-F550 more convenient to use.
Highly recommended, and perfect for my requirements.
Pour revenir à son utilité d'origine, les 160 leds sont assez puissantes pour tourner des vidéos.
Je bute sur l'alimentation et j'ai opté pour des batteries rechargeables de grande qualité. Je ne tourne pas des vidéos tous les jours mais j'utilise souvent mes batteries. C'est un choix personnel qui n'est pas définitif.
Ce kit d'éclairage, je le recommanderai même à un ami ;)
There were no instructions in the box bar the little bumpf that explains which batteries can be used on this device.
It comes with two diffusers, one was installed on the lamp already, that was the opaque one, and the other one is a warm filter which I haven't tried out yet as I have other filters and gels that I use for studio photography.
It is a piece of kit I'd take out when I am out and about with my camera and rucksack perhaps to throw some light with a reflector to brighten up an area to avoid using a higher ISO than I would ordinarily want. I haven't been able to try this out and about as I am not able to go out at the moment.
I'll be honest, it feels far from premium in terms of the material it is made out of, a bit too plastic, but I can assure you it is a very well-thought out piece of kit and for the price compared to other video lights I'd say it's worth it if even just to try it out.
The dimmer is on the side of the light and is easy to use, not stiff or too lose.
When you go to put the batteries in, the AA batteries do fit, you have to carefully remove the plastic fascia in order to insert the batteries. You can use a number of different batteries with this model. If I find that I use this as a go-to gad about auxillary then I will get the rechargeable lithium-ion battery for it as it has the adaptor case for it. All in all I think this is a value for money piece of lighting.
Also being LED means it never gets hot!
Attaches to the camera shoe easily, and doesn't move no matter how much you swing it about
The only downside is that its made of plastic and therefore doesn't feel like the best of quality
Die Lichtleistung ist hervorragend, oder besser gesagt: unglaublich hell! Die mitgelieferten Diffusorscheiben sind hilfreich. Die Lampe erbringt eine sehr gute Ausleuchtung, sie taucht Räume von 50qm in helles Licht. Somit ist sie sehr gut für Videoaufnahmen verwendbar. Aber auch als Blitzersatz praktisch, das Licht wirkt viel weicher als mit dem eingebauten Blitz.
Praktisch wäre noch ein Eingang für eine externe Stromversorung durch ein Netzteil. Bei Verwendung im Studio ist ein Steckernetzteil zu verwenden, den Anschluss im Batteriefach muss man durch anlöten oder einhaken der Kontakte selbst realisieren. Ich habe das mit einem 2A-Steckernetzteil gemacht. Ich betreibe die Lampe mit 7V, der Plus-Anschluss ist von hinten auf das Batteriefach gesehen unten rechts, der Minus-Anschluss unten links.
Die Lichtleistung ist allerdings so hoch, dass ich beim Videofilmen inzwischen dazu übergegangen bin, mit 800 ASA und 1/25 Verschlusszeit zu filmen. Dadurch kann die Leistung der Lampe stark abgedimmt werden. Das spart Akkustrom und die Gefilmten werden nicht so stark geblendet.
Übrigens kann man diese Lampe auch als Flutlichtstrahler / Bauleuchte verwenden. Auf ein Stativ oder hohe Stange montiert, leuchtet sie bei voller Leistung ein ganzes Gartenareal aus - taghell. Ob Baustelle, Party, Wege beleuchten, all das ist möglich. Das nur, um eine Vorstellung dafür zu bekommen, wie hell diese Lampe ist. Für moderne Foto / Videokameras mit rauschfreier, hoher ASA - Einstellmöglichkeit ist diese Lampe eigentlich viel zu stark. Durch den Einsatz der 6 AA-Akkus ist sie auf der Kamera auch recht schwer, ein Videodreh aus der Hand geht nach wenigen Minuten definitiv nur mit zwei Händen.
Ich werde sie auf jeden Fall behalten, durch ihre Helligkeit ist sie universell einsetzbar. Sie macht die stockfinstere Nacht auch auf größere Entfernungen zum Tag.

I'm new to lighting my video clips so rather than splashing out on expensive gear I thought I'd dip my toes in the water and give this a shot to see if I liked it. I'm often finding myself in difficult lighting situations and my m43 camera is only so-so at low-light videography, often going yellow under fluro lights etc.
This gear throws out quite a bit of light, but the skin tones stay true and don't wash out, surprisingly. I took a video clip in a darkened room and slowly dimmed the light from off to full and off again. At full the subject was lit perfectly from two metres away.
The dimmer is essential IMO. At full whack this is almost blinding and I can see myself instructing my gf to hold the light from behind the camera, rather than mounted on top of it (the light, not my gf).
The filters slot into position tightly, no rattling.
I opted to buy a Sony NP-FH70 battery and charger, rather than going for the AAs. I'd read that this will last hours and it seemed to make sense. There is no plate to hold the battery in place, however, it just slots in and protrudes out the back by about 7mm. This is no big deal currently. There's a 'test' switch on the back with four red LEDs to indicate battery charge, which is useful.
I've yet to try it out in the real-world so if my view changes on this I will edit my review of this gear. I'm no professional but for someone getting into videography I couldn't recommend this enough. For the price, you can't go wrong.
There are a few options when it comes to powering this light. There is a link below to the re chargeable batteries I bought, and I am yet to be disappointed! Definitely an important piece of kit when in low light conditions, and the dimmer dial on the side comes in super handy. There are also lights to tell you how much battery the light has left to avoid leaving you quite literally in the dark.

It doesn't feel too sturdy, it's definitely cheap plastic, but overall as a quick-fix it holds up well
They used to be good cheap lights but now are just rubbish & best avoided.
Build-quality is good, considering the price. The case is sturdy plastic but I won't expect it to withstand being dropped onto a hard surface, so will handle with sensible care. It takes either 6xAA batteries (alkaline or rechargeable), or a variety of Panasonic or Sony batteries via a supplied adaptor. Light output at max is near-daylight at 5400K colour temperature. Output is via a simple on/off roller-switch on the side - just roll it to the brightness required.
The supplied clear diffuser and 2 filters (orange & magenta) give some variety, but I suspect a collection of gels would really enhance the versatility of this unit. It can be camera-mounted (manual settings only), which is a bit clunky & top-heavy, but I intend using it as a separate unit for lighting big areas etc. And here's my one beef - I like Neewer kit, I have several items, one of which is a flashgun which comes with a separate mount to either stand alone on a flat surface or attach to a separate tripod. If only Neewer had the same accessory for this flood! As it is, I've got to get hold of a mount of some sort to make best use of this off-camera. Would've been 5 stars but for this.
I've not used this a lot since purchasing a few months back, but I have a big choir to photograph coming up, Will keep you posted!
