Great go to device when on a remote location as the battery pack is small and light weight. As a light weight concentrated diffused light source I attach a cheep shower cap over the front of the reflector bowl. The included umbrella and a translucent dome-shaped tube protector I feel scatters the light to much is my main reason for using the shower cap.

If you’re wanting an inexpensive monolight to take with you everywhere, this’ll do nicely. If you’re looking to use in a studio with heavy modifiers, look to a AC powered monolights.
