The light body itself is manufactured from aircraft grade aluminum with a hard anodized finish which reads like every other "tactical" light made today. It's a solid unit that feels good in the hand, especially if it unexpectedly becomes an impact-tool-of-opportunity.
If, for some reason, you wanted to not include audio recording in your evidence, there is an internal switch you can easily access that turns the audio recording on or off. Let's be honest: unless you're saying things you don't want heard by your command staff or juries, there's no reason to turn that audio recording off.
All in all I was pleased with the unit. With the caveat I documented earlier - this isn't something you're going to be able to turn on "instinctively" when you find yourself suddenly under attack, so you'd be better off activating the video recording each time you get out of your vehicle - it's a good tool. Given the price of some multi-function rechargeable LED lights these days, I expected to find a $500+ price tag on this one which included the camera. A Google search revealed several dealers pricing them at $385 or less (plus shipping). That price is more than reasonable and the multiple functions (in my mind) make the light/camera more than worth it.
