While looking for a lighting solution for use with my Seatool video housing, I came across some people who had used the Fix Light HG20DX as video lighting, and they were pleased. For a purchase price of $419.00, it was quite expensive for a single "flashlight" style of light, but I went with it because it was less expensive then a full video lighting system. I also purchased the Fisheye rotary shoe base for $60 to connect it to my video camera.
The light shipped to me and was missing several parts. I was told by the distributor that this happened with several orders, and was shipped the missing battery, charger, rubber battery cap remover, etc. Once I got everything, I was able to crank this thing up.
The battery charger has a wierd quirk. I fully charged the battery. I had 4 green LED's that indicated it was fully charged. I left it on the charger for a couple more hours and came back to it and it only had 2 LED's lit - indicating a half charge. Strange. This also happened one other time when we were charging it on a trip. In addition, on 2 occassions, the battery claimed a full charge - but would not power up the light. Taking the battery out and placing it back on the charger for a couple of seconds, then back into the light made it work again.
