Info on Sony Video Light

Recommended Posts

I have a new Sony DCS-W-7 W/ houseing and I am considering getting the Sony HVL-ML20M Video Light to use with this system. Does anyone have any experince or thoughts on this light? I think this is a 20 watt light. Is this enough or would a slave flash be better, and if so which one?

Hi Jeff

 

I'm not sure why no one has replied ?

In general a video light won't have as much power as a strobe but is better than nothing. The Sony video light is usually more expensive than other brands. I used a Hartenberger Mini Compact video light years ago with a Sony P9, it works GREAT now as a torch for night dives and I occasionally use it to help my D70 focus in low light.

 

I'd say go for something other than the Sony and you'll be able to use it as a torch later.

 

As far as which strobe will work well with your W7 I'm not sure.

 

Someone care to comment ?

 

Regards

Brad
