The main drawbacks are many and substantial however. First off, this thing is prone to breakage. When mounted, a simple bounce off a carpeted floor will snap the housing of the display from the hot shoe. This is not a robust piece of equipment in any sense. Also the battery meter is more or less useless as it will read that the battery is near dead when the light is activated. It doesn't really eat batteries as you'd expect (I got probably 30 or so hours with high cap AA's) so longevity isn't much of an issue if you have a back up set on standby as you'll never really know how much power is left.
The light also has a tendency to bleed into the frame on wide angle and zoom lenses, when zoomed all the way out the actual light itself will be in frame on some lenses. People looking for clean frames will not find this light very useful, but those looking for odd looks might find this to be a great light.
That being said, this is a neat little novelty item for DSLR users who have a little extra cash to burn and are looking for a different look than overhead mounted LED banks. I'd recommend picking one up and trying it out, then purchasing a second one because it will most certainly at some point break on you.
Don't buy it if your lens has a 72mm or larger filter thread, as it causes severe vignetting when zoomed wide. I tested it with my old 28-70mm f2.8 lens which has a 77mm lens, and at 28mm about a 1/2 of the image is gone, and the flash encroaches on the lens. If you have the 24-70 it will be even worse at 24mm. I'm afraid to even try it on my 17-40mm zoom. Also the power of the flash is very low, even at its maximum power, so using it with a telephoto doesn't work. See my photo.
For pro or more advanced lenses, it's a joke.
