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!

The light itself is fine, does the job. Variable intensity and color temperature and the addition of a diffuser are good features. Unfortunately the included battery charger is very poorly made. It is difficult to insert/remove the battery and it is made of very cheap, thin plastic. I can't imagine it will last very long. Fortunately the light can be powered by the included wall wart. I bought a small adapter that allows me to mount the light on a microphone stand. This allows a lot of flexibility in positioning of the light off camera.

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

    I bought this product to use as a constant light source instead of a flash on my Sony A7ii. I thought if I could just get a little bit more light without flash, I could get really good in-camera HDR with it. It did not do what I had hoped. It really is easy to use and very light weight. It tilts in any direction also.

        For the price point I don't think you can do better than this. Used at a wedding to light wishes to the bride and groom. Also used for an interview in an office where the color control came in handy.

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

                    I wanted a small, portable, variable power light to provide some fill and augment available light for video. The LED-6200T does that nicely. It will not illuminate an entire room (look at Genaray's larger units for that), but provides a subtle fill at reasonably close distances without being overpowering. It comes with a nice case, will be good for travel (one of my primary concerns). Battery life is good, but I wanted a light that would also run on AC power, both 110 and 240V. Nice to have this flexibility. As other reviewers have stated, the hot shoe/ball mount is not of industrial strength, but should hold up fine for average use. Four stars instead of five because the battery charger could be a little less bulky and a bit more robust, but that is a minor complaint. All in all, an excellent, highly flexible little light for specific applications.

                        I use this light on camera for videoing weddings. Can be very bright, but with dimmer works well. Color temp adjustment is spot on. With included battery, I can use for several hours at reception.

                            I use this light for macro shots in very humid and dark environment (rain forest), mostly as a fill-light. The reviews are by far positive and I can't add much to already written stuff: compact and light, relatively non expensive; the dimmer and light temperature adjustment are perfect features for what I need. The problem with the humid environment was solved with simple zip-lock plastic bag :) and the light is still alive after the first hike in rainy, muddy day. My real scores are 4.5 – due to the lack of weather sealing and comparatively narrow range of color adjustment (the lights with broader color adjustment are in different price category).
                            Very good on-camera light!

                              I use it mounted over the DSRL camera and function correctly

                              Is very lightweight. beautiful stetic design, compact design, resistant is perfect. Resistent

                              The things i don't like about this lamp is the high cost of it. And maybe the lenght of the light is short when you use it for video. Minimum 10ft is perfect, but when you use for 10ft or more the light becomes soft.

                                I use this for my wedding videography. I like being able to change the color temperature as well as use the dimmer on this. Before I had bought a cheap light that didn't change color temperatures, it is definitely worth it.

                                  Comes with a battery that will get you through a couple hours. Works as an edge/fill light for higher-ISO DSLR shooting (I use with A7S shooting in SLOG which is native 3200 ISO). Sturdier than I thought it'd be (but, it's a "prosumer" build) Nice little light.

                                  Serious Bang for the buck, for the price this light works exceptionally well, its no super bright, but paired with my a7s, brings some crazy nice cinema images to life, the color temperature shift is an absolute must, came in very handy when I was filming my latest short film.

                                    This is a very compact light with a very decent output. The battery seems to be pretty compatible with those of various monitors or cameras. The Variable-Color is a great feature to have although the lights do seem to flicker a bit while twisting the knobs on the back.

                                    This product is not suited for a DSLR application
                                    and should only be used for video. I was very disappointed in the product and I returned it a week after purchase. On a more important note, B+H
                                    showed A GREAT DEAL OF INTEGRITY AND CONCERN CONCERNING MY ISSUES, Kudos to B+H.
