The light features built-in barndoors, a flip-down diffuser, and a condenser lens. It has an L-series battery plate and includes a BP-series battery plate adapter. Batteries are sold separately. An NP-F970 L-series battery provides approximately three hours of runtime. The runtime can be prolonged in Standby mode, which has a power consumption of only 0.1W or less.

This light features the proprietary Sony Multi-Interface shoe. When it's mounted directly on Multi-Interface shoe mounts available on cameras such as the Sony NXCAM and XDCAM camcorders, it can be set up to power on/off when the camera is powered on/off or when recording is set to start/stop. Either option can be assigned in the camera settings. A standard shoe mount adapter is also included for attaching the light to standard camera shoe mounts. A mini desktop stand is also supplied for off-camera use.

Sony HVL-LBPC Reviews

Terrible. Shoddy Build. Frustrating OEM parts. AVOID

This light is so frustrating. The Adapters are shoddy, the build quality stinks, if you are mounting on a sony camera you might be fine, but for all other purposese buy elsewhere. Very dissapointed.

Great light

So with owning the Sony z190, other video lights would not fit properly. You couldn’t tighten them down enough and they always fell off. This light not only fits, but what a powerful light! Bright and its throws light a good distance. Turns on and off when attached to the cameras setting.

Battery Drain!

I left a fully charged battery on, overnight, and it was drained by 1/4. Same results occurred a second test. Ask B@H and Sony to test.  Great light for FS5M2!
