Product Highlights
  • For Camcorders & DSLRs
  • 4500K Illumination
  • Side Bracket
  • Shoe Mount
  • AA Battery Power (Up to 4 Hrs)

The Bescor LED-25 25W LED On-Camera Light is a vital addition to your lighting kit, providing that extra bit of fill or eye light when and where you need it. Attaching to your camera's hot shoe--or to a tripod or light stand via the included side bracket--the LED-25 is powered by two alkaline AA batteries that provide up to 4 hours of run time.

The unit's 20 LED bulbs are daylight balanced at 5600K, but are warmed up to 4500K with a fixed amber filter. And, like all LEDs, the LED-25 will never get hot to the touch. Weighing only 2.6 oz (without batteries) and only 4" high, this light can be packed just about anywhere--ready at a moment's notice.

    This light has a slightly flimsy plastic feel. The threaded collar that tightens the light onto you shoe mount is thin plastic and doesn't seem capable of exerting much force. That being said, if you use the supplied bracket, which has spring loaded clips that securely hold the light, or if you have an on-board shoe mount that has spring loaded clips, this light works great. For the price, I can get over the flimsy feel (the shoe is the only really objectionable part). Despite the above criticisms, I'm giving 5 stars. If you want a higher quality build, you can pay more for other lights. But overall this light is well worth the money. The light output is surprisingly even, although not very wide; exactly what you'd expect out of a light of this size. The light is corrected using a permanently mounted amber lens to 4500K. Keep this light on you when you don't think you'll need a fill, but want to be prepared just in case. Or maybe in a situation where you need a fill but factors might put more expensive lights at unwanted risk. When it does give out, toss it and buy another one.

    I used this light to interview a subject in a remote location. With light on the subject coming in from the side through a window, this light was too weak to fill in any of the dark places on the face even thougth the light was just 4-5' from the subject. And even though it is not very strong, the light is still uncomfortable if look at directly.

    My guess is that this light is best when used in low light situations (where it will make a difference) and when the subject will not be looking right at the camera/light. If I were to do it again, I would buy a more expensive light with 1) more power, 2) a variable control, and 3) one that could be plugged into a wall outlet. This light is battery-only and can really eat up the batteries. I also found out the on/off switch can easily be accidentally turned on with just a little bit of jostling inside a camera bag. If you buy this, always carry spare batteries.

      I actually lost the battery "door" on another light unit and was going to use this as a replacement light but it turned out that battery doors matched perfectly so I can use my other unit

      This is an OK unit though - just don't expect miraculous amounts of light

          Comments about Bescor LED-25 25W LED On-Camera Light:

          Very bright for its size, uses batteries++, decent for some filming and definitely for fill or light-shaping. Bracket is a nice bonus. But it has two major issues that I think make it less than suitable for recording humans. For one thing, its brightness is fairly stark and hard for a subject to withstand, and you have to be close to do a decent job on, for example, an interview. Second, duh, the shape of the light is VERTICAL. This occurred to me when I bought it, but I assumed it had some feature to spread the light horizontally; it really doesn't, especially up close. I haven't seen a camera yet that you would turn sideways to record a movie. So the basic shape of this thing makes zero sense. One way to mitigate both problems is to set the camera farther away from the subject, which eases the light strain and also allows the light to spread. But you can only go so far, especially recording speech in a noisy environment. So, overall, I'd say it's a handy second light, and a fine modeling light to put on a tripod for light-shaping a portrait, for example. But in general this won't be my main light. I'm keeping it because it does provide good strong light, but I've already ordered another, HORIZONTAL one (with filters) to use for interviews.

            I use it to record videos with my Cybershot Sony camera and my Canon T3. I place it a little bit higher to get a wider illumination and to avoid the concentration of light in the center. The product is not heavy and give a good range of light, of course do not pretend to illuminate a complete room, but for its size and price, it is a good purchase.

                        Used with DSLR. Great fill in light. Very even distribution with no hot or cold spots. Good battery life and low price. Buy a side mount so it can be positioned beside the camera. When placed on the hot shoe of a Cannon DSLR it interferes with the flash.

                          I gave this product five stars because I was really surprised at how strong the throw on this thing was. I bought this with the Bescor LED 70 dimmable light and found myself in love with this 25W LED. I shoot with DSLR so it is very light weight when mounted on my Canon 5D which is useful during run and gun event filming. During recent work on a short film, we used this light as a key light to light up the actor's eyes and it provided beautiful results. The lights are not dimmable, but in controlled situations, I would either attach something in front of the light to diffuse it or move the light back. For the $ price tag, it's one of the cheapest lighting surprises that I have ever worked with and the battery life lasted quite a bit on 2 AA batteries.

                          This battery-operated light gets the job done--providing a bit more light in a low-light situation. Mounting the light in a non-tripod situation can be a bit tricky (mounts underneath camera, which can make holding the camera awkward), and an adapter for my canon mini advanced shoe would cost as much as the light itself. All in all, though, a much better deal than buying a Canon proprietary light.

                            I am a professional paranormal investigator and have recently purchased the Bescor 25W LED On-Camera Light. This product is one of the best from our vast array of lighting needed for videographing on-camera interviews of historical researchers, town historians, etc. We will definitely be purchasing more in the near future.

                              These compact lights are perfect for our projects which include shooting in a small recording booth. We actually mount one one the camera and use two others on light stands for additional fill light. Their fact that they run on battery power is awesome because we can take them virtually anywhere. The quality of the light is perfect and very flattering to our subjects.

                                  Comments about Bescor LED-25 25W LED On-Camera Light:

                                  I bought six of these lights for an Amazing Race style event, part of which was filmed at night and part of which was filmed in a pitch-black cave. For the price I payed, they exceeded my expectations. Very easy for even novices to set up and use, and despite appearing flimsy none have broken yet.
                                  The lamps provided sufficient light while teams were in cars or doing stationary tasks, but when the competitors got more than about 2 metres from the camera they lost their effectiveness.
                                  The only drawbacks are that a) they are really only effective in pitch dark - they have no effect as fill-in light at dawn and dusk, and b) the light is not pure white, there's a yellow tint, so not good for filming cave formations. But they're minor complaints, and the lamps amply did the job I originally bought them for.

                                        I use this light on my TM900 for production purposes, when I need a light weight camera. It is low weight, bright, good battery life, and value.
                                        Now, my one issue is the high pitch noise that the light makes when it is running. I have a aftermarket mic that does pick it up. Can't really hear with stock mic, but definitely with the external mic. It is a bit of an issue when audio is needed, but I use my camera for more video.

                                        Purchased for shooting n-scale railroad videos. Had to buy a second unit and return the first, as the first's wheel nut wouldn't turn, so it couldn't be attached to anything.
                                        The second's wheel nut turns okay, but the crooked manner in which the unit was attached to the base makes the light shoot at an upwards angle from the lens' angle. But it will still work OK for my purposes.
                                        In addition, the second unit's batteries died after about a minute.
                                        Good 2nd use of the item: a household flashlight.
                                        It's very bright.
