Product Highlights
  • On-Camera Light for Camcorder or DSLR
  • 30 High-Powered LEDs
  • Dimmer Control Knob
  • 6500K Daylight
  • Soft Diffuser Reduces Glare
  • 4300K Filter for Natural Skin Tones
  • Weighs Just 6 oz

The Sunpak LED 30 Video Light mounts to your video DSLR or camcorder to cast even, 6500K daylight on your subjects. The 30-LED light features a dimmer knob so you can adjust the brightness to suit your exact needs. Supplying a 4300K color-correction filter and a diffuser and running on AA batteries, the LED 30 represents a simple yet versatile solution for on-camera lighting.

The LED 30 light attaches either to your camera's shoe mount or, via its 1/4"-20 thread, to a tripod or light stand (a 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 adapter may be necessary). Your captured video will exhibit better color, clarity, and contrast. For reduced glare or for softening highlights, just install the included diffuser. To produce more naturalistic skin tones, use the supplied 4300K color-correction filter.

LED technology offers even lighting without producing heat. Relative to other solutions, power consumption is extremely low. This model is extremely lightweight at just 5.9 oz (without batteries or filters).

Note! Requires 4x AA (alkaline or NiMH) batteries – not included.

    I will be using this Sunpak light on my main camcorder as I track the brides and grooms through their wedding day. I like the compact size of this light that produces a prodigious amount of light. The dimmer knob rolls smoothly up and down as it smoothly, continuously alters the light output. You get 3 choices--raw light output, diffused output using the clear slide-in lens, or color-corrected output using the red-tinted lens. I love the fact that it uses inexpensive AA batteries for power and does not draw from my camcorder battery. I will insert it into my cold-shoe mount on top of the camera for use. The weight of it is substantial but not prohibitive. It feels solid. I can think of no cons about this light.

    I used this led light not on a camcorder but on my DSLR eos Canon rebel camera. I like the fact that the light is continuous so I can see how the light looks on my subject matter. I can use this product on my camera or on my tripod or just position it with my free hand. I also like that it is a nice soft white natural looking light.

    However, I wish it was more powerful. It works best for small subjects that I can position the light about 6" away at full strength. I use it for filling in the shadows when the main light is coming in from a window. In bright sunlight it doesn't really make any difference.

    Considering that a typical flash can cost so much more and creates results that look less natural, This Led light will still be a usefull tool in the right setting (indoor still subjects.)

        Comments about Sunpak LED 30 Video Light:

        I bought two and one of them was missing the battery cover and its dimmer switch did not work on unpacking. Very pleasing that B&H readily posted a replacement unit to Australia at no cost. The lights are very cheaply made hence the budget price. I bought them for macro SLR lighting. Even at close distances and full power they can only be a fill light at macro ie f16-22 apertures. They do help with auto focusing. The main light will still be my Canon 580 on camera flash with a diffuser.

            The main reason I like this light is it has a very narrow light pattern. I would say about a 30* spread with a nice soft edge pattern. It also has the jack for a 6 volt ac adapter. I plan on purchasing another one.

                It improves the quality of the video in dark places, but it is not strong enough for a long distance. Anyway is has improved the video quality. Too big for the amount of the light it produces.

                I am using these lights for fill and for on camera. Crazy how bright they are. I pointed one of them at my wife and she started yelling at me. Can't wait to play around with them some more. Feel like I am going to break it eventually but I hope they last for awhile.

                A Bright Light and the Price is Right!

                By Cole'sVP

                from Akron, OH

                Comments about Sunpak LED 30 Video Light:

                This light was bought on a whim. I needed some extra light for filming in low lit venues. For the price, I got everything I expected out of it. When I bought it, on sale I was surprised and enthralled on what a great light and value this is!

                Pros- Small enough to accompany any gig bag. The light is bright enough light an entire room and then some. The Dimmer is a huge help.

                Cons- 4AA batteries power this device. You can see where I am going with this... Also, this is my personal problem, I have to keep track of my power switch. I have found my light on in a while in my bag. But with a proper case or placement. Should not be an issue. I'd recommend buying 2 or 3.

                    I bought this little guy as a whim. I'm beyond happy with it so far. It's a great off camera handheld light. It adds drama to a shot or is helpful with lighting rings. I love how lightweight it is and the option to dim and brighten the light.

                      Light is extremely bright despite being powered by 4 AA batteries, however don't expect it to last long at maximum intensity. Dimmer switch is useful and shoe mount is sturdy. Only change would be a more durable battery cover. All in all it's worth the price.

                          I have this light mounted to the top of my Nikon DSLR for when I'm shooting video. The dimmer knob is a great feature as well as the interchangeable slides to filter and change the light. It's perfect for the small projects that I shot. The only downside is that it uses 4 AA batteries. My advice, get a couple packs of rechargeable batteries so you don't have to worry about losing power at an inconvenient time.

                          Don't get me wrong, I grabbed two of these to use as miscellaneous kickers and they're great for that. The design is decent and it uses standard AA batteries which is nice... but the build quality is pretty low. Seems like it could break easily. Glad I bought 'em on sale ;)

                            I had a cheaper and slightly larger version of this light and was hoping it would be as powerful. But the range is not great so would only be helpful for few feet lighting.
                            Good construction otherwise.

                              A good light, was lucky to get it on sale so I purchased two to use along with a 126-LED light panel I already own. The 5Dmk3 doesn't need much light, and if I use my Rokinon f/1.4 the three lights give me enough to shoot at about ISO 1250 with very little noise. Nothing professional about 'em, kinda cheap feeling, made of plastic, but they're light and if you don't throw them around or drop them I think they'll last a while.

                                I'm using the LED 30 Video Light for fill. In low light situations, these puppies have made the difference between an okay shot and a wow shot. I keep 3 in the bag for location shoots and special conditions. I've used them as much for photography as for video - great performance for both. An optional power supply would be good - but the battery consumption is reasonable and acceptable. Great product! Affordable for all users - home movies or pro studio.

                                I got this light because I was in need of something quick and not too expensive. It just needed to get the simple job of lighting up my subject a little more and making the lighting seem a little more controlled. This light is extremely simple but does a good job and really does make a difference in the quality of your videos. It does feel a bit cheaply made, but it's also at a very cheap price. You get what you pay for in the end.

                                  I will be using this Sunpak light on my main camcorder as I track the brides and grooms through their wedding day. I like the compact size of this light that produces a prodigious amount of light. The dimmer knob rolls smoothly up and down as it smoothly, continuously alters the light output. You get 3 choices--raw light output, diffused output using the clear slide-in lens, or color-corrected output using the red-tinted lens. I love the fact that it uses inexpensive AA batteries for power and does not draw from my camcorder battery. I will insert it into my cold-shoe mount on top of the camera for use. The weight of it is substantial but not prohibitive. It feels solid. I can think of no cons about this light.

                                  Great improvement over my old SIMA SL-10L. Had a little trouble with batteries. Took several tries to load them right. No marking to indicate + or -.
