This might be a cheap alternative for those that need a flash for SLR camera, camcorder or via a tripod. It also features a battery test function that displays the remaining battery based on the current brightness setting.

Note that this LED light drains your batteries at full speed even when it is turned off!!

See the poor reviews.

*I do not have this issue. Battery sat in the light for weeks without being drained.

I got a canon T5. Can I sync with the camera flash and use this instead of internal flash? TIA

this is a constant light so it has nothing to do with the shutter so yes

So, I can't use it as a flash. Also, as I have T5, ISO max is 3200, no good photos in dark. Any recommendations on a good flash? Or using this cheap light?

It's not a flash, it's a light. So it's either on or not, the LED light isn't remotely fast enough to sync with a camera shutter.

I have something similar and it works fairly well. It doesn't have the reach of a flash but works well out to say 5-10 ft. Shadows are more harsh than a flash with a good diffuser. If you're doing video then it's a good option, especially if you stick these on the end of booms for indirect lighting.

Any reason why not to buy this from monoprice? They seem to have bad rep on here from what I've read on the comments. I'm currently debating this as a portal light for my G7

Looks exactly like the Young Nuo SYD-1509 I piad $45 for a year ago on ebay. It runs either on AA or NB-3L, which are Canon Li-ion batteries if they are the same. You can get them on ebay. I got it to use it for video, but I ended up using it more as a general flashlight around the house. The light is more even and natural vs the usual flashlights. I'll pick up another. I'd get more than 1 if I knew if they're the same as the Young Nuo.

I got this last time. It needs a rechargeable battery like those camcorders because it eats up the batteries fast

Does anyone know what kind of battery packs this uses? Description seems pretty lacking

I have something almost exactly like this for my Canon. It does work well, as one person said, for close range. I did want to point out that mine has the modern (read: artificial) bluish LED tint to the light, but that is easy enough to fix in any editing software.

Also, someone was wondering about Monoprice in the thread; I never had any issues with them.

I have one that's similar and looked into the proprietary battery pack. I ended up buying extra Eneloops instead. Works great.
