Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Do you need the intensity of flash, or the lasting attraction of a constant light? Would you rather have the stamina of a mains-powered kit, or the go-anywhere portability of a battery-powered lamp?
