      This lamp delivers a very bright light with minimal power. I really like the fact that it uses an NP type Sony rechargeable battery that I already had for my camcorder. I've used the light in some very dark situations with great results, and I really like the barn doors and diffusion options. The dimmer feature also makes it extremely versatile. Typical Sony product . . . packed with features!

        Comments about Sony HVLLBPB High Power LED Video Light:

        This is the best investment I've made for my camera. Great quality, great mounting option and fantastic range of use. The light gels you have to insert to transition from 3200-5600 are probably a little easy to use, but buy yourself an extra battery to power this light externally and you're good to go!

        I've used this light for outside environments and it covers everything. Have not ran into problems. Also I love the fact that it runs off of Sony L batteries. It's a fantastic little light with a lot of range. Have not used it inside yet, but I'm sure it will not disappoint.

            Comments about Sony HVLLBPB High Power LED Video Light:

            We bought this for our Sony EX1 and EX3's becasue the Bescor lights we had just weren't durable at all.We love this light. Sports has taken it to Husker across country to away games and needed just a light source to see our gear. The light stayed powered for nearly two hours on the middle brightness knob. The flood light filter is perfect for interviews. I've noticed with a lot of LED lights that interviews under 5 feet can be spotty becuase the LED lights are so concentrated. The flood filter on this takes that spottyness away. Most of the time we don't even have to turn the dimmer up for interviews, it just stays on the lowest level. It attaches to the camera's built in shoe mounts with ease, and we've had zero issues with coming loose. Lastly the spot light doesn't throw much farther than 7 feet. However for shooting news we don't usually need to throw a spotlight that far.

                    I had been seeking for this video light for a long time!There were not a place where I have asked for the product but unfortunately I got a negative answers. When I found it in your shop I was so happy because I knew that I was going to buy from the respectable company like yours, new with guarantee and high class shipping! Thank you very much! I use it shooting my little daughter and my 4 years old son. I like it very much! I use it with the Canon XF305 and Sony PMW-EX1. This light helps my cams to achieve the best quality and result in low light! It has very useful combinations to use it in the various situations. In the back side of the light it is written that this item is an amateur. But I am not agree with it, it is professional light!
                    You know I write this not for winning US 1000! I just want to take this opportunity and express my gratitude to Sony and to you for your high class service!
                    Thank you

                      I use the SONY HVLLBPB for mostly weddings.
                      Love the filters and ability to scale down the light to a close-up romantic glow of the bride.
                      Weddings are all about the bride you know.
                      The MOB as well.

                          Use this light for interviews and so far it has been great. Using with Canon XF305. It's a little pricy but the picture quality is worth it when you have to interview someone in dark areas.

                                This product will be used for wedding videography. I am very happy with the amount of light, the filters and the ability to dim the light. A fantastic product which, I believe, will make my reception "message for the couple" interviews much better.

                                I love this ligth... is so versatile, many functions... it has a long distance reach..awesome.. the problem is the price... it is too expensive.. also another down is the battery it has to be the one Sony made... I have two type of sony batteries but only one type fits.. and is the most expensive one.. so if you want to buy this light you have to budget a battery. It makes your load a bit more heavy..

                                    This lamp delivers a very bright light with minimal power. I really like the fact that it uses an NP type Sony rechargeable battery that I already had for my camcorder. I've used the light in some very dark situations with great results, and I really like the barn doors and diffusion options. The dimmer feature also makes it extremely versatile. Typical Sony product . . . packed with features!
