    I've been looking for a decent video light and after reading Videomaker magazines impressions of the new line of Sunpak LED lights decided to look into them at B&H. I selected two of the VL-LED-96 models to test out and found them to be just what I needed for fill light inside when just a bit more of light was needed to avoid video grain in the shadow areas. I've used them outside in the evening to photograph some spectacular plants. They are also useful for macro shooting. Being able to control the intensity of the light lets me add just the right amount of fill light to the dark areas of subjects being photographed with a macro attachment. Light weight they use easy to find triple A batteries and the unit itself seems to be well constructed.

    This light works awesome for night videos as long as your subject(s) is no further than 15 feet away. I taped Nestor Torres playing a private garden party at night and the video came out "acceptable". However, the light was useless when locked into the hot shoe on my Canon 20D. I was better off using the on-camera pop-up flash for the still photography.

    Comments about Sunpak VL-LED-96 Compact Video Light:

    I bought this to use as a side fill for still shots. It works as advertised. Being able to dim the LEDs is an essential feature. The build quality is about what you'd expect from a light that only costs $. The battery door would be probably the weakest part of the whole thing, But it works fairly well & is a handy, low-cost addition to my kit.

        Comments about Sunpak VL-LED-96 Compact Video Light:

        I just got two of these lights as I want to use them for doing some copy stand work and figured I could use them for general photography and video work as a bonus. They are bright, but remember to recharge your batteries before using them. I put in some Eneloop batteries that had been sitting in my bag for a while and the light was dim and at first thought something was wrong. Put in alkalizes and it was bright, so remember to recharge your batteries before using the light.

        Also, there is what looks like an external power plug on the bottom of the unit. Does anybody know if I can use an external AC to 6 volt DC power supply to run these lights? That would work well for the copy stand project as light intensity would not fall off as the batteries get used up.

            I use these to eliminate shadows and punch up details in my portraits and macro's. They work very well. They're very bright for the size and completely portable.

            The SUNPAK VL-LED-96 is a true bargain. At this price point, you really can't go wrong. It does the job and does it quite well. Although the build quality can be improved upon (a bit flimsy and perhaps even a bit too bulky), on a technical level it puts out enough light to satisfy both the amateur and mid-level photographer. The adjustable dimming knob is a great feature and comes in very handy for mood lighting.Overall, I'm happy.

It uses standard AA batteries which I use in all my flash units, so I always have an ample supply charged. The light is good and has good coverage. Sunpak has along standing place in the photo community.

                By Stefan

                from Washington D.C.

                Comments about Sunpak VL-LED-96 Compact Video Light:

                This compact on-camera LED light is an amazing deal: its cheaper than the identical Bescor, offers fantastic light, and even includes a diffusor and color-correction filter at this amazingly low price. The light is very bright and even, although a bit more focused than I anticipated (a plus for me). The dimmer is a great feature.

                Don't expect high quality, though, it's just a flimsy plastic enclosure and that's about it. However, at this price you can buy one every year and still save money.

                    Comments about Sunpak VL-LED-96 Compact Video Light:

                    I'm using this as back up lighting at weddings (think dark cake cutting, ring shots, etc). I also use it outside after dark with the couple instead of an off camera flash to do cool back lighting. It's lightweight, easy to transport and gives off a good amount of light. Not as much as my last compact video light but that one broke after one use and this one didn't.
