I had a shoot in New York shooting interviews for 4 days. I knew I was going to buy a new LED light. I have a really nice Litepanels light, but it weighs so much that it would put me over the weight limit on baggage.

They actually didn't have the light I've been researching, so I asked for a LED light that wasn't the cheapest and not the most expensive. Sales rep gave me 3 choices and I picked this one.

I am thrilled with it!!! I bought an extra battery, but I didn't need it. Being able to change the color temperature without throwing filters on it, was so nice. Especially since I had no idea what existing lighting conditions I would have. The case is very nice too.

My only con is that it only throws about 6 feet. But for the price, it is perfect!

I may buy another one to use as a backlight!

I am generally happy with this light, using it for night video, low-light video, and as a fill light for photos. My biggest complaint is the fact that the battery monitor doesn't work, making battery levels a guessing game. I am traveling which makes mailing a replacement difficult, or I would have sent it back for a replacement...

Does it all!

Comments about Genaray LED-6200T 144 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

For the size, the power output and versatility is amazing especially for live events like weddings and red carpets. The bicolor knob is great for indor/outdoor transitions. The only room for improvement I would see is on the dimmer as the lowest setting is pretty bright - lower varying degrees of brightness would improve this product. I would definitely recommend this light!

    Comments about Genaray LED-6200T 144 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

    I use this Genaray product because it meets my cost point and provides exactly what I need for the projects I work on. The 6200T throws a very nice even pattern of light (flood) 10-15 feet. It's bi-color ability allows me to blend light in uncontrolled production situations without missing a beat.
    The only thing I am not sure about is it's durability. Over the next few months I will learn quickly. Glad I bought it and will probably buy another soon.

        Not a terribly pretty light, but the form factor makes it useful to keep in your bag. There appears to be a strong magenta cast throughout the color temp range.

          Handy little light to brighten faces. Need to add more powerful diffusion panels but the magnets are so strong on the one provided you can put cloth and/or baking sheet paper underneath to soften it.

                  This is. My first LED light, does exactly what I expected. Well made, nice carrying case with pockets and straps for all the included pieces. Plastic housing seems durable enough, definitely a great buy for the price range. Light weight, easy controls. Shooting up close, I'm very happy.

                          I was looking for a reasonably priced on-camera light. I stumbled upon this one as part of B&H's flash sale and ended up picking one up for around $. Overall, very satisfied with the product. It's also great that they include a soft travel case along with the standard charging cables as well as a car charger.

                                  Not much to say, as I got what I expected. I ordered two when they were on lightning sale. Love that it comes with everything you will need in a zippered case.

                                  Comments about Genaray LED-6200T 144 LED Variable-Color On-Camera Light:

                                  I purchased this item thru B&H's Deal Zone and expected a spare light to be added to my lighting arsenal. When I received the package, I was pleasantly surprised about all the value that I had gotten in the package. I gave it a four-star since it is a bit less bright than a similar on-camera LED light that I had previously purchased. But overall, this is a value that you cannot beat.
