This is a super bright light for it's size which can throw light far and pretty wide. In my included image it lights up my backyard pretty easily. You can see my fence which is 50 feet away from my camera and farther into my neighbors yard. The only bad thing at this brightness is that the battery will go dead in 30 minutes. However, if you bring a powerbank the light will work with external power through it's USB-C port.It comes in nice packaging -- kinda Apple like quality. It's a heavy light and comes with a beefy instruction manual that honestly doesn't say much. Has a nice diffuser like lens and a mostly plastic white body with a metal bracket and a built in fan.The bracket can be used as a stand if you place the light on a table or to mount the camera on a tripod bolt either portrait or landscape positions.I don't like that there's no LED screen for feedback or LED indicators for power/brightness or color that you typically find on high quality lights.... you either gotta do it all by feel or use the markings on the dials. The only LED indicators are for the battery charge level.This is a handy powerful light that you should add to your kit.

You need a small portable light with power? This is it. End of story.It switches from white balance from warm to cold and has immense 40w light output in the palm of your hand.It doesn't come with a hotshoe because this is powerful enough to be expected tobe on a tripod off camera when shooting. This light is beautiful for still lifes AND portraits. I use it for small lights in cinematography and it works perfectly. The light is strong enough for a small amount fill light outside in the Miami sun. IE this light is more powerful then He-man. Zhiyun isn't playing with it's new continuous lights they are NO joke. This is the best pure light you can buy for $100. Unless you need a color gamut of additional colors or a light todo "special fx" like sirens, lightning & etc.A great buy, period keep it in your camera bag, for sure.

I was expecting to be impressed with this light based on the reviews I've read. The mention of "game changer" seems to be a common comment about this new FIVERAY M40 light. Upon testing out this light myself, I agree! Most small lights don't hold a candle(power) to this light in terms of sheer power and light output in such a small form factor.I wouldn't have guessed a manufacturer known for gimbals would hit it out of the park with their first portable light, but they did. There are some clever ideas baked into this light as well, such as the metal bar on the side which protects the dials during transport, and can also be used as a built-in, adjustable angle stand. There are also two 1/4"-20 threads for attaching adapters for cold shoes, light stands, etc.I do think they missed one design opportunity... they could have included a cold shoe mount into this bar. There's even an area where one of the threaded ports is located that actually looks like a cold shoe mount at first glance, but not in reality. If there was a cold shoe mount there, the light would be in a vertical orientation on top of a camera, but would still work. Or they could have included a simple 1/4" to cold shoe adapter. Fortunately, I have several mount adapters, so not a big deal for me, but it would be nice to have it already included in the design. A small protective padded bag/case also would have been a nice inclusion.The plastic orange dials have a bit of a cheap look to them, but they work and feel just fine. Overall, this light does have a high quality feel and works great. The build quality for the most part is first class. The internal battery is very convenient, as many of my portable LED lights use a Sony NP style battery for power. With this light, if you have the battery charged up, it's going to last quite a while and no extra battery is needed. If the internal fan came on during my tests, I didn't notice it.I think this light may inspire other manufacturers to up their game to stay competitive. For now, I think this FIVERAY M40 light is in a category all its own and despite my minor nitpickings, it really has no competition that I can think of in this portable lighting niche. Well done, Zhiyun!

Great light. Zhiyun is probably best known--at least in North America--as being a company that makes gimbals and other camera stabilization equipment. They're pretty good at making lights as well. I've got several of their handheld video light wands and they're great. This is a bit different form factor, but equally as impressive. It weighs less than a pound and while it isn't quite 'palm size' (unless you have huge hands) it is very portable. It fits well in camera bags and briefcases, so you can always have a first rate light available. It's battery life is only a half hour (at max power) but you can recharge it in less than two hours. The powerfully bright light it emits is almost hard to believe given the small size of the unit. Highly recommended!!
