The Neewer CN-160 can mount to any standard hot shoe on most DSLR or digital video cameras as well as tripods and light stands equipped with a hot shoe mount or 1/4" thread. It is also equipped with a pivoting head, allowing you to raise or lower the light's angle. The light is battery powered and requires 6x AA Lithium Ion batteries (not included).

Battery life can easily be monitored using the battery power indicator located under the battery compartment. The Neewer CN-160 LED Video Light is easy to install and use and will make a great addition to your photography or video studio.
