The Vidpro Varicolor 312-Bulb Video and Photo LED Light Kit comes with everything you'll need to shoot on-the-go with your camcorder or DSLR.

The kit centers around an on-camera LED light that's 7.5 x 4.5" in size and that features 312 warm-to-the-touch LED bulbs. For mounting the light onto your camera, a ball mount is included and is adjustable to rotate in various directions. A rotary dial on the back panel of the light lets you select between different color temperatures from 5600K daylight to 3200K tungsten, and another dial lets you dim brightness from 100 - 10%. And for smoothing out contrast and reducing shadows, the kit contains a white diffuser that snaps onto the light magnetically and serves to soften and spread out the light output.

The light runs on two included lithium ion batteries and alternatively by a likewise included AC/DC power supply, and it is additionally compatible with separately sold Sony L Series F550, F760, and F960 batteries. The kit is complete with a wall charger and car charger for the batteries and with a rugged nylon carrying case to hold everything.

      I'm very pleased, not too shabby.

      Ok, so I only got to use these twice so far, but, I just love them. I bought 2, and I will probably end up buying 2 more.

      Ok, so I only got to use these twice so far, but, I just love them. I bought 2, and I will probably end up buying 2 more.

      The Good:
      - lightweight
      - pretty decent construction
      - great complete kit (2 batteries, double charger, ball mount, AC power, diffusion)
      - ball mount works decent, but not the best

      The only CON that I think is really worth mentioning is that the Color Temperature is not very accurate. It works fine as "daylight" but the warmer "tungsten" side could use a bit of extra CTO. I wish it came with a Magnetic snap on CTO filter as well, but only comes with Diffusion.

      ** NOTE, I have found that this light is built in china, and SEVERAL companies sell this same model and pass it off as their own.. Including IKAN, POLAROID, and more.. with that said, this kit by VIDPRO seems to be the best value, based on what it's packaged with & price.

      You would think that being able to vary the temp. would mean you no longer need to carry magnetic filters, but not so: the diffusion is a filter. The thing is heavy, the ball attachment it comes with is worthless, when attached to the hotshoe the light bounces around and the ball attachment loosens out easily. The low intensity flickers. It is nice to have the option for 2 batteries.

      Comments about Vidpro Varicolor 312-Bulb Video and Photo LED Light Kit:

      I do video production and youtube vids mainly, utilizing a green screen. This is a really great light if used on its own to fill the talent with light. It's very nice and love everything that comes with it. If you use the diffuser, lighting is good and soft within about 5' of the light. If you need it brighter, you must remove the magnetic diffuser. This will get you nice light from 10'-15', within 10' being the best. The only issue I had is that I am currently using high powered studio lights of 500 watts to light up a green screen behind me. This light is not bright enough to light the talent in front of the green screen properly, since the green screen lights are much brighter. So it's really not the light having an issue, it's just not bright enough to light the talent if you are using much brighter lights around. Just an fyi. I have to use the bright energy-consuming lights when using green screen, but other than that, this light is awesome! I have read it is wobbly while on the camera and this is true. It just doesn't tighten up that much and it's wobbly. I need to Mcuyver some rubber gasket or something between this and where it mounts to the camera. I recommend this! Very light and pro.

        Comments about Vidpro Varicolor 312-Bulb Video and Photo LED Light Kit:

        Bought this for my daughter who is into making youtube videos. We researched lighting techniques and especially single-lights, and settle on this light for the varying intensity and adjustable color balance. Reviews that say the on-camera mount is flimsy; we found it had a tight mount that is not flimsy at all. As my daughter continues with her videos, I believe I will get another of these, or perhaps too. I like that is operate using her camera batteries. The set is complete with everything you need. On full intensity, it is brighter that the sun.

          I am a professional photographer/ videographer, shooting for the last 30 years. I have seen a lot of changes since my Canon F1. This light is remarkable. The quality of light is beautiful and the diffuser is stunning.
          I have used it for 2 video interviews and 1 stills session and was delighted with the result. I had no problem with the color temperature as some people have stated. I was so happy with it, I have just ordered a second one.
          It's a great tool to add to my lighting systems.

              This is one great, no so little, light. The Vidpro Varicolor 312-Bulb LED light is a variable intensity, variable color temperature camera mounted light. It is light-weight but packs heavy-duty performance with great battery life from the two Sony type L series batteries mounted on the back. Color temperature is adjustable from 3200K-5600K. The magnetically attached diffuser makes it a piece of cake to add a gel for your creative light scenes. This light also makes a great hand-held light by mounting it on a cold-shoe handle or bracket. I like it so much I bought a second one!

                  I use the product for weddings. The African-American skin tone can be a challenge for flash photography. I put the light on a tripod to illuminate a scene. I feel, so far, I have a better chance at getting consistent quality and effortless results in pictures with this light than with a flash.

                      I use the Varicolor 312 connected to a DSLR (Canon 5D MK3).The connecting piece is rather flimsy, and hard to fasten. No matter what I do, the Varicolor doesn't sit stable and firm in the hot-shoe and that goes to the ball head as well.the lighting is very satisfactory as well as the color temperature control.

                        It gives you control over both the color and the brightness. It also runs on it's own battery source so not to drain the camera battery.
                        It is very well built and it doesn't get HOT.
                        I really think this is the way to go.

                            it's rather large, but puts off a good light.changing the tempature with a dial is wonderful, and of course the dimmer is nice as well. it runs on 2 sony p batteries which is wonderful. i ran the light off and on over a day shoot twice so far and have not gone to my back up batteries yet. it seems to draw power from both batteries at the same time, but if only one is plugged in than it runs on just one. No idea how long it will go on one battery.the color temp on warm is not quiet 3200k and cool is not quiet 5600k but looks nice. I use leds lights for my main lighting and this compliments that kit very well.the shoe mount is nice but is a little shaky from the weight.

                                Ok, so I only got to use these twice so far, but, I just love them. I bought 2, and I will probably end up buying 2 more.

                                The Good:
                                - lightweight
                                - pretty decent construction
                                - great complete kit (2 batteries, double charger, ball mount, AC power, diffusion)
                                - ball mount works decent, but not the best

                                The only CON that I think is really worth mentioning is that the Color Temperature is not very accurate. It works fine as "daylight" but the warmer "tungsten" side could use a bit of extra CTO. I wish it came with a Magnetic snap on CTO filter as well, but only comes with Diffusion.

                                ** NOTE, I have found that this light is built in china, and SEVERAL companies sell this same model and pass it off as their own.. Including IKAN, POLAROID, and more.. with that said, this kit by VIDPRO seems to be the best value, based on what it's packaged with & price.

                                  You would think that being able to vary the temp. would mean you no longer need to carry magnetic filters, but not so: the diffusion is a filter. The thing is heavy, the ball attachment it comes with is worthless, when attached to the hotshoe the light bounces around and the ball attachment loosens out easily. The low intensity flickers. It is nice to have the option for 2 batteries.

                                    I use this light mostly as a fill up light for interviews. It can also be used as key light and is grate as such. I live in Iceland and over the wintertime we do not have much of natural light and under such conditions I have used it as a fill up light in medium wide shots. The option that you can change the Color Temperature and the Dimmer make this light the best option as compact portible LED lights.
