The main problem we have with on-camera lights is the same problem we have with on-camera microphones. By definition, they're almost always in the wrong place. In placing the light right over the lens, you end up with a straight-on, deer-in-the-headlights look that flatters no one. However, when shooting conditions are so dark that your choice is between bad picture and no picture, it's always best to go with the former.
