    I haven't even used this light for shooting a video yet, and I love it already. This little light along with a Joby Gorilla has been great for table top shooting of small items. I used my iPad for a quick photo upload, and lit the camera I wanted to sell, with this little light using the warming filter. Quick and fun!

    Light has decent enough power to be a key light from about 5-6 feet f2.8 iso 800....maybe could work at 3-4 ft iso 500

    this is a cheap spectrum LED and needs 3/4 minus green....just finished testing it for about an hour.

    1/4 minus is not enough....full minus green is a little too much

    I am using 2 stacked sheets of 1/4 minus since i only have 1/4 and full....and it is still slightly on the green side....a tint of about -4

    Full minus green leaves you with a tint of about +7...this is visibly purple
    my kinos come in at about +4 tint...but don't appear as purple to the eye as the numbers would suggest

    with no minus green you are looking at over -20 tint correction...pretty well unusable

    with the tungsten filter it comes in at about 4200k and only needs about 1/2 minus green as the amber of the filter helps a bit.

    For the price this is not a bad light....I am using it for an undercover doc in some dangerous places so i cant bring any Pro looking camera gear to keep a low profile...and it works great for that.

    If you want a real good quality light...with nice spectrum LED color...look elsewhere.

    The litepanels micro for example gets away with 1/4 minus green...but is 1/2 to 1/3 the intensity of this one and would need at least 1000 iso at 3ft to be enough for a key

    Remember even though you can correct the green...a lot of cheap LED will be lacking a lot of the visible spectrum(LOW CRI)...which can lead to odd looking skin tones ect (oranges can look really bad)

      Comments about Vidpro K-120 On-Camera LED Video Light Kit:

      Good light for DSLRS, not overly big and bulkly, and with DSLRs you don't need very much light so gives plenty. Nice and slim, like the way the battery sides in from top to bottom, so battery doesn't pop out like the other lights where battery lays sideways.

      This light is great as long as you never ever let it touch anything while mounted to your camera. The plastic shoe mount will crack very easily.

              Comments about Vidpro K-120 On-Camera LED Video Light Kit:

              i'll start this off by saying, yes there are better LCD lighting solutions out there... but none for the value. my girlfriend and i both work on various video projects and we love using the two we have from a broad range of uses. we like their and living in NYC traveling via subway for a shoot isn't fun with bulky lighting set ups.

              it has it's downsides...
              it's mostly plastic, and my concern is with the shoe mount. my solution is to use the tripod threading as much as possible when mounting it places (i like to mount them on magic arms).

              It works best with a fully charged batter or using the provided AC adapter. We have noticed a steady drop in light intensity and a shift in color temp as the battery gets lower.

                  Comments about Vidpro K-120 On-Camera LED Video Light Kit:

                  I use this light primarily for event videography, especially in darker locations. It uses the same giant battery pack that my old light used, but the battery that came with it, although smaller, was enough to power the light for a 6 hour event! The diffusion filters don't really diffuse much light, but at least they stay in place during use. I'd like to experiment with adding a bit of diffusion paper to see how it affects the throw.Apart from the plastic enclosure that feels like it's going to snap off its base an any moment, the only complaint I have about this light is the intensity control. Its advertised as having 0-100% dimming control, but its not smooth (rather jumpy). So in effect you have 2 or 3 settings, mostly around 100%.

                    This is a very useful lights just to have in your kit. Not only is it great for an on-camera light but is also great as a throw-down accent light to lighten dark areas in the shot. The dimmer, warming filter and diffuser add to the versatility of this bright little light.

                        This is as-advertised, and it's what you would expected for the money. The case is convenient, it has a battery with a wall charger, and what looks like an adapter mount for cameras without the expected mounting plate on top.

                          I use the item for my Canon T4i in video mode. It does a great job for lighting items close by, especially people.

                          It's clearly a consumer product, in that it's made out of medium-duty plastic, but in the week I've had it, it is durable. The case it comes in doesn't compare to the Pelican cases I use for other equipment, but it's great that it came with a case.

                          The other suggestion is to include a manual with the product. While simple enough to operate, having a manual to describe the use of the filers, dimmer and the mystery button on the bottom (it releases the color filters) would be welcome.

                          I do weddings and interviews, It's ok overall...but not great, you need two in order to light up your subject in a low light (wedding scenario) situation.

                          I use this light for run and gun shooting. It is very bright and easy to use. The filters are an additional plus.the case is of good quality and useful. My only gripe is the dimmer. It goes for %0 to %80 instantly and then gradually goes to %100. There is no %1 to %79 so it is very bright or nothing..for more quick and dirty run and guns this isn't a problem.just always use diffuser.

                                this little monster is sooo bright thank god for the dimmer and the defuser.
                                works so well with my canon 60d and the fact that it has a battery charger very similar to the canon 60d charger makes it a big plus so no need to keep buying 3th party batteries. my rate is without a doubt 10+++.

                                  Well the dimmer on mine seems to skip from 0-10% in a click and then reaches 100% halfway up the dial. The "warming filter" isn't all the way tungsten.. but that's about all the flaws I can think of. Good battery life, powerful output. Easy to have up and running quick. I bought it looking for a solution to light exterior night scenes as well as augment interiors and it works perfectly. I just wanna get more of them now. I love that it comes with an adapter for Panasonic batteries too.
