We bought this for the power outtages we get far too often. We got tired of searching for the flashlights and holding them for illumination. I can't speak for camping but for our purposes these lanterns work great.You can set it down and It will light up a room enough to see where you're going.
Good soft light for small lantern...i like that it has low and high settings and that it never blinds you like some LED lights. I purchased two; tent use and emergency home stash. I would highly recommend this product.
