I tried to take several photos of my daughter's 3DS case from no flash to using the filters and you can see the difference about the brightness of the photos above.
NO FLASH - I tried the camera with no flash to see the difference.
CAMERA'S FLASH - I used the flash of our camera for this one.
W/ WHITE FILTER - I used the Chromo's LED light and white filter instead of our camera's flash. The photo was brighter and clearer and the Mario image was glare-free.
W/ PINK FILTER - I used the Chromo's LED light and pink filter instead of our camera's flash. It doesn't have that much difference with the white filter but it might have a difference on a different setting.
W/ YELLOW FILTER - I used the Chromo's LED light and yellow filter instead of our camera's flash. The photo became yellowish and is perfect if I wanted to have that old photo/sepia effect.
After using the Chromo CI160 LED Video Lighting, I noticed how different the quality and brightness of photos are with and without it. The brightness of the Chromo LED lighting is also dimmable so I can adjust the brightness I want in my photos. In the above photos where I used the Chromo, I was at the maximum or brightest setting. As I've said, I'm not an expert when it comes to camera accessories so I can't say if these photos look different for those who are experts on cameras but for me, the Chromo CI160 made a difference on my photos and I love it since it's easy to use.
