I know some guys (including myself) have asked the question before, "how can I add video lighting or photo lighting to my point and shoot set up?" I just finished setting mine up so I figured I would give the curious a look.

I started with the D-2000 strobe as I needed a strobe and that appears to be the best. It also has a built in 3w modelling light. Not a lot of power but pretty bright for its size. On to that I found that Equinox makes an arm which connects to the light canon 100. Basically they make the adapter and the rest of the arm is the loc line stuff. Pretty cool. I've yet to do an in water test but it seems pretty cool on land.



So I took a picture of the light on a white wall in my bathroom to see how bad it would burn in the center of the image. I was about 3-5 ft from the wall.


Next I put a single diffuser on the light (2 come with it I believe) and this was the result. (Same settings)


I haven't put the second diffuser on (can't seem to find it) but the first one works pretty well. All in all not a bad cheap video and photo light.
