Our take on the Canon VFL-2 Video Light by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Use Canon's VFL-2 video light to shoot clearer videos with your compatible Canon camcorder. It brightens dimly lit settings and fills in unwanted shadows caused by direct sunlight. It also has a flash for taking brighter still pictures. This handy light can be used manually, or you can set it to automatically turn on or off depending on the surrounding brightness. It's powered by your camcorder through its Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe, so it doesn't require its own batteries.
