Brite-Strike is now making a flashlight camera for duty use. The “Duty Light Camera” (aka DLC-200-4-MIL-RC) is a handheld LED flashlight that can record standard definition video in addition to throwing up to 200 lumens of light.
The flashlight is relatively small at 7.5″ long. This puts it into the same general size category as the Streamlight Stinger flashlight (7.4″ long). The Brite-Strike weighs about 12.3 ounces. By comparison, it is slightly heavier than the 10 ounces of the Stinger.
The Duty Light Camera has three flashlight modes: high, low and strobe. High mode puts out 200 lumens, while the low output mode gives 80 lumens. I could not find any peak beam candella measurements for this flashlight, which would give you a better sense of the brightness of the center portion of the light instead of just the total output.
The light control switch is located on the body of the light, near the flashlight camera head. There is not a tailcap switch.
“Rechargeable, this flashlight is,” said Yoda. A rechargeable lithium battery is included along with a 120 volt and 12 volt charger (for both home and the “office”). Run time for the flashlight on “high” is about 2.5 hours. I’m not sure how long a single charge will run the light and the video recorder.
