Overall, the concept on which the CononMark DD400S is based looks like it could be the future for compact portable lighting. This particular iteration leaves a bit to be desired, however. The reflector and bayonet mount are probably the biggest dealbreakers. If the manufacturer produce a similar design but with a Bowens S mount and bare flash tube, they are surely on to a winner.
