The Vidpro 4-Piece Interlocking Professional Photo & Video LED Light Kit is a case set of four individual 96-LED lights and an assortment of accessories that provide power and different mounting and color options. The lights interlock into a variety of vertical and horizontal configurations, and in a 2x2 configuration total to only 10x6 inches. Each light produces a 50W-equivalent light-beam and the combined set produces a total of 200W.

The included accessories are:

Four tungsten filters and four soft diffusers
An L-series 7.4V Li-ion battery with a charger
A battery cradle with a four-plug power cable
An adjustable stand bracket with an umbrella receptacle
An adjustable tripod and shoe ball mount
A horizontal mount with an adapter stud
A foam-grip handle

An L-series battery provides all four lights with approximately 2.5 hours of power. The L-series attaches into a battery cradle, the cradle attaches onto the back of the lights, and a four-plug cable extends from the cradle into each light. AC power or five AA batteries per light can alternatively be used.

The color temperature of the lights is 5600K. It can be lowered to 4200K with the soft diffusers, and to 3200K with the tungsten filters. And brightness can be controlled from 0-100% with an adjustable stepless dimmer.

The filters and diffusers are uniquely designed to magnetically snap on to the lights. The foam-grip handle can be used to hold the lights off-camera. The adjustable shoe-mount allows on-camera use. And the adjustable stand bracket allows for stand mounting.

The accessories and lights fit perfectly into inserts made for them in the carrying case. The case itself is hard, rugged, foam padded, and fully loaded totals to approximately 4 lbs.

      Nice lighting kit - nice packaging

      I used all four lights together (on a stand) for an interview. The VidPro battery (comes with kit) lasted about two hours (with all four lights being used at one time). Once the provided battery had run out, I had to switch to my Sony F970 battery. This is where I ran into a problem.

      WARNING > When you switch to the Sony battery, MAKE SURE that you dim the lights. At 100% power on all four lights, I blew two of my Sony batteries instantly. Sony batteries (apparently) don't have a fuse that trips it back to the norm when you place it back on the charger. When Sony batteries blow a fuse, they are dead. The provided VidPro does! I had to use AA batteries for all four lights (which is a nice option!)

      When I contacted VideoPro, they were very understanding, and they had not had an incident like mine before. They sent me two new VidPro batteries and a new charger. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE BY VidPro!!

      The magnetic filters are absolutely ingenious and easy to take on & off, and the quality of the light is great. Despite my battery problem, I was very happy with the product and delighted to speak with a VidPro engineer (one that speaks English and knows the product) immediately after my shoot. The customer service is worth the price alone!

      The concept of these lights is great and the lights themselves are bright, portable and the flexible configuration makes them great for all sorts of applications. But my first experience was a disaster. The batteries, which had been charging for at least 12 hours, failed after 20 minutes of use. Not just one batter but ALL of the batteries. I'm not sure if there is an alternative way to power the lights with batteries, but obviously without a reliable, portable power source they are next to useless. I will be contacting B&H photo for more information about resolving this, but unfortunately, at this time, there is no way I could recommend them.

      Comments about Vidpro 4-Piece Interlocking Professional Photo & Video LED Light Kit:

      I know that there are bigger, more expensive lighting systems, fancier designs but not better. Vidpro nailed it with this baby. You get three power sources in one system. 1 AC, and 2 types of Battery power options. Truth is, you never have to use the optional AC plug if you don't want to. The sony Type lithium battery is plenty, but what I like is the AA option. I have plenty of Enveloop's, the great battery from Saanyo. These rechargeables run forever. With the long charge and this great portability of this Vidpro kit, you're set. These lights output is 5200k, daylight. The beauty of all this in one package, these lights are adjustable individually, and they work as a group or as singles. If you don't have one "get one" Oh you can buy in a smaller kit too!!

          Comments about Vidpro 4-Piece Interlocking Professional Photo & Video LED Light Kit:

          The lights are nice to use, the pieces to clip them together are a pain, but we are shooting a food show, I can put one on a gorilla stand, clamp two on a maffer over the grill or plunk them on a light stand and it's really handy. Light quality is OK, wouldn't use for faces unless there's no option. But the cables to use more than one from a battery are the worst. The lights go on and off, you have to jiggle them to get the lights to work, it cheapens the whole package. and I had a battery DOA, but it was replaced but it took a few weeks

            The four light design makes the camera very front heavy. Use a 6" stud to get the light up higher so you can use the rear hot shoe mount.

            Comments about Vidpro 4-Piece Interlocking Professional Photo & Video LED Light Kit:

            The VidPro 4-piece interlocking LEDs give you a wide range of options for the amount and tone of light. Each light is adjustable and you can use one, two, three, or all four together. They are individually bright enough to separate and light a scene or setup a three-point lighting for an interview. My only complaints, and they're significant, is that the lights are hard to soften because of their shape and size, and they flicker horribly on AA batteries. The set comes with a Sony rechargeable battery, and I would recommend getting another one or two of these. I have installed brand new AA batteries and within 15-20 minutes the lights started flickering. This does not happen with the battery pack. Only with AA batteries. Twice the flickering was so fast and imperceptible that I wasn't aware of it until I was reviewing footage.

            I use these lights on camcorder, and standalone.

            I like the battery options, where the same batteries I use for my camcorder work with it. And then, I can use the AC adapter from my camcorder, and AA batteries.

            Also, the dimming functionality, combined with being able to connect them, make this very flexible, indeed.

            I like the magnetic feature, to help keep the lenses in place and together, as needed.

            I am concerned about durability. The plastic seems robust enough, but it is plastic and when joined together, it seems like it might be vulnerable to twists and torgues that would break the plastic latches.

            I use this mostly indoors and it's great. The lighting here is not very good for photography or creating videos but with this kit lighting is never a problem for me.

            This is really a great kit to have with you all the time because you never know what the lighting conditions will be and this kit is very portable.

            I also like that it comes with two filters per light.

            The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts is that I wish it came with a AC adapter so I could plug it into an outlett. I use it a lot indoors and I often drain the battery. The battery lasts a long time but still I'd don't like having to worry about it.

            So, get the kit and an extra battery or two and you'll love it.

                      Comments about Vidpro 4-Piece Interlocking Professional Photo & Video LED Light Kit:

                      I used all four lights together (on a stand) for an interview. The VidPro battery (comes with kit) lasted about two hours (with all four lights being used at one time). Once the provided battery had run out, I had to switch to my Sony F970 battery. This is where I ran into a problem.

                      WARNING > When you switch to the Sony battery, MAKE SURE that you dim the lights. At 100% power on all four lights, I blew two of my Sony batteries instantly. Sony batteries (apparently) don't have a fuse that trips it back to the norm when you place it back on the charger. When Sony batteries blow a fuse, they are dead. The provided VidPro does! I had to use AA batteries for all four lights (which is a nice option!)

                      When I contacted VideoPro, they were very understanding, and they had not had an incident like mine before. They sent me two new VidPro batteries and a new charger. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE BY VidPro!!

                      The magnetic filters are absolutely ingenious and easy to take on & off, and the quality of the light is great. Despite my battery problem, I was very happy with the product and delighted to speak with a VidPro engineer (one that speaks English and knows the product) immediately after my shoot. The customer service is worth the price alone!

                        I reviewed this product using blogs and many YouTube demos and I must say I am thoroughly impressed.

                        The light is wide and bright and the filter attachments are magnetic (A huge Plus).
