Sunpak VL-LED-160 Overview

  • 1Description

The LED-160 Video Light from Sunpak is a camera-mountable light suitable for video and photo applications that require a continuous source of illumination. The light comprises 160 individual, dimmable, LEDs, that together render a brightness of up to 900 lux at a distance of 3.3'. A slot in front of the LEDs accommodates filters; two color conversion filters as well as a diffuser are included. The color filters include one pink filter to help cut any greenish cast originating from the light, and one amber filter to help the light better match tungsten sources. A standard cold shoe mount with tilt allows the LED-160 to attach directly to many cameras and camcorders, and a 1/4"-20 thread allows it to be attached to light stands, tripods, monopods, ball heads, and other alternative or off-camera mounting options.

Flexible Powering: Powers from AA batteries, Panasonic D series batteries, or Sony FM, F, FV, FH or FP series batteries
Battery test button with six indicator lights for power status
Up to 90 minutes battery life, depending on battery type used

    Sunpak VL-LED-160 Reviews

    LED-160 Video Light is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mount SUCKS! Light works great, the hotshoe mount absouletly is a disgrace. I can't believe B & H would carry this item. Had the light in my camera bag for a month, I now have three screws that have fallen out of the hotshoe mount. Now I could put the screws back in and attach, but there is no possible way to secure the screws because you can't access the inside of the light to attach the washers.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bright LED but housing is not perfect The LED is great very bright. I had issues with 3 things. The swivel mount design is poor and I had to use pliers to tighten it so the light would not flop over. One side of the clamp moves in a groove rather than the simple pinch type tensioner. 2nd - the filter holder molding is not perfect so you really have to jam the filters in. I had to use pliers to remove the filter - no way to pull it out with fingers. Lastly no Canon EP battery mount. It has AA mounts, so I will use those. Not sure which DSLR battery the mount goes with, but should include one for the Canon EOS DSLR style as well since they are so popular. But if you just need a light - not the shoe mount and without the need to remove filters often, it's great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light I ordered this light this morning,and I picked it up at the B&H facility in Brooklyn. I have a Canin XC10 4k vidieo. When I unpacked the light I thought, oh wow this light maybe overkill for a camera of this size. But after I put the light on my camera, I have no regrets. It balances on my camera very nice, not adding really too much weight either. The light itself is very nicely made, and the dimmer switch is a major plus. For the price you really can't go wrong. I use aa rechargeable batteries to power the light and so far so good. And as usual, the service at B&H photo was impeccable as always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product for the price This lamp accepts almost any kind of battery in the market I love it. Durable and easy to operate. It needs some adjustments anyone can do with some Gel screens because the factory comes too blue but in General awesome product

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 4.5 star light, 0 star for mount Light part is really nice, Great for product and closeups. I don't think the shoe mount is possible to be made any cheaper. I think bubble gum would be even better. Mine broke there in first 20 seconds. Dropped and crash.. but light still worked.. :) 4 star for the light (maybe even 5) zero star for the mount..Over all feels like light from dollar store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best LED light for it price range! Would buy 2 This light is AFFORDABLE and best bang for the buck.. only $36 and you get a very light and mobile (LED) battery powered/ no cords, light that can last to 2 hours. I already shot my first event using it which was a banquet with dim lighting.. this light is so bright I had to dim it to 75% power when subjects are within 3 feet. Only cons are the adaptor built in for Panasonic D Batteries don't work for mine.. the filters that come with are not really usable or serve a purpose.. the diffuse filter barely soften the light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatr Product! I would defintely buy it again! I'm a photographer and videographer/ I needed a light source to video indoor, dark areas. I found this item on B & H. Great price! Ordered it and had it within a week or so! Used it later that week at an event; it worked like a charm! I'm glad B & H had this product at such a good price!

    Does a lithium battery or battery pack come with this product?

    Batteries are required but not included. They are an optional purchase.

    Does this work with a Nikon D5500 ?
    Asked by: Louis C.
    Yes it works with a Nikon D5500, it is a constant light source, not a flash.
