So it has come to this, another item in the world of photography and video has become automated. This new 300 LED light from Yongnuo has a “built-in photometric system” which can match ambient light levels automatically. As of right now everyone who has seen this or posted news is unsure about how good of a job or the overall usefulness of this feature. I only know one thing for sure about this LED and that it that it does not come with the ability to read your mind, so you most likely need to manually set the light for most situations. Although this product is shown on top of cameras the LED doesn’t actually use TTL, it has a built in light meter. The LED comes with ship with a remote which can either control the brightness of the light or control your IR on your camera. In case you find yourself lost the camera also has a build in SOS distress signal (no joke) that can help if you are left in the woods with only this LED. It’s funny to see theses manufacturers try to one up the other by adding the silliest features.
