      Keenes in a UK eletronic/photographic company that supply cables, DJ equpment, camera equipment and decent photographic lighting. I bought the Keenes 200w studio light for £53 last year from amazon.co.uk

      I was wanting something powerful and compact and the light seemed to output around about the right throw and brightness I was looking for. It's hotshoe mounted so it would seem it was made to mount on a professional camcorder. This was quite frustrating at first as it doesn't come with the option to change to a pin so it may be attached separately to a light stand. I eventually got a adaptor from amazon which sorted that problem out.

      This light generates a lot of heat so if your in quite close courters then have good air conditioning and be sure to switch it off 5 mintues to handling when you pack it away as the metal will be scorching hot.
      The light bulbs seem to blow quite frequently unfortunately and are nearly £20 to replace including P+P. I'm not sure if this is a mains fault in the power supply maybe overloading or a flux. So this ins't necessarily fault of the light itself but I haven't got to the bottom of this yet.

      As I've mentioned this is powered by plugging into a main power supply. So a wall plug or power generator.

      There is a version of this light that comes with daylight balancing filter which is quite a handy accessory. I use diffussion paper and daylight gel which does the trick but annoying to assemble so I would be partial to buying the filter in the future.

      I'm pleased with this light ultimately. I don't think it's the best solution out there by far, but for the price I think it just meets my expectations. There are a few annoying blips but on the whole it's very useful.
