Product Highlights
  • Daylight Balanced LED Light
  • For Camcorders & DSLRs
  • 3W White Bulb w/Internal Reflector
  • 2 AAA Batteries

The Polaroid Studio Series Camcorder Video Light is a 3-watt on-camera LED light that mounts easily to any camcorder or DSLR using a standard shoe mount. The light is balanced for daylight (5600K), which means it's a bright white light that reproduces the look of indirect sunlight. This makes it ideal for filling in shadows during outdoor scenes or delivering extra punch to dimly lit areas indoors or at night. The battery-powered light comes with an AC adapter and, for off-center placement, a mounting bracket that attaches beneath the camera. This allows for more indirect--and more pleasing--lighting of your subjects.

Eliminates dim, grainy videos caused by insufficient lighting.
3W white bulb and reflector produce evenly balanced lighting.
Use during daytime shoots for enhanced color and detail.
Can also be used with digital still cameras that feature video mode.

      Comments about Polaroid Studio Series Camcorder Video Light:

      A low-cost light that works well, but its build quality and design could be better. The light temperature does appear to match daylight. The width and throw of the beam work well for macro photography, which was my intended use of this light.

      As for build quality, it feels cheap. Two no-name NiMH AAA rechargeables are included, as well as a mounting bracket and AC adapter. I thought the light would be able to run off the AC adapter, which would eliminate reliance on batteries. Unfortunately, the light runs off batteries only. The AC adapter is only for charging the batteries, not powering the light. In fact, the light won't turn on when plugged in, even if you have charged batteries installed. Regular AAAs can be used in lieu of rechargeables, but make sure not to connect to AC power with regular AAAs installed. Another negative about this light is the plastic tripod mount.

      The Genaray LED-2100 light is better-built and has a metal tripod mount, but it does rely on a Li-ion battery pack. That light includes a spare pack, but that is still not as convenient as AAAs.

        Comments about Polaroid Studio Series Camcorder Video Light:

        To give adequate light, so as to illuminate subject in order to capture image under better lighting conditions other than, low-light indoor lighting. It is better than no-extra light. Videos will not be high-enough-quality if you did not have sufficient light for the sensors to pick it up, yet, I cannot say that this product will cast light for a great distance. It is most likely best for closer up recording. If you don't have a light for a camcorder and you're concerned about spending too much, then I would recommend this one, it is good/ok for the price.

        Comments about Polaroid Studio Series Camcorder Video Light:

        The light doesn't clamp down on the hot shoe very easily. Gaffer tape might help this if it's required. This works great off camera, it's small and hand holdable. It's not bright enough to act as fill lighting in bright sunlight, but is great for closer and macro work at night.
