The Paglight C6 light is a small on-camera light with a difference. Snapped onto the front of the lighting instrument is a ring that has two retractable barn doors to control spill, a frosted white diffuser and a glass dichroic filter that changes the color temperature of the light to match sunlight. The 20-watt tungsten halogen lamp produces a comfortable 3200K light and is powered by its own 6-volt Ni-Cd battery.

And what a battery it is. Weighing in at nearly 3 lbs, this bulky battery even comes with its own carrying strap. In our tests, it took three hours to fully charge the battery. A full charge powered the lamp for just over two hours of continuous use, which is quite a bit of time for a portable light this bright. The Paglight itself is remarkably lightweight and small (about 8 oz). It has a tripod mounting screw in the base that can be used with any standard tripod or an on-camera offset bracket so you don’t blind your talent. A small mounting plate is also included if you want to use the shoe on your camera.
