    Vidpro LED-230 reviews

    Ultra-Slim LED-230 On-Camera Video Lighting Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! Great little light. This is twice as powerful and smaller than most lights in it's price range/category. I'm using this indoors for video key, back and kicker and outdoors for fill on stills day and night. It will light a model outside at night from 15' away. The angle of light is a perfect fit indoors for my 17mm Oly on M43 (or 35mm in full frame terms). The light gently softens and falls off to the edges of the frame but everything is lit. It looks quite natural. The 3200 filter is fine, just what you'd expect. The 4500 diffuser doesn't really do much of anything. I may take a brillo pad or some sandpaper to it to rough it up a bit more so get some softness out of it. For a first LED light this is all anyone would need. For me it will be my only light on run and gun night photo shoots, and a fine kicker/hair light for indoor video/interview shoots. Considering what a charger and battery cost, it's like getting this light for $15. You can't go wrong. It has no weight and fits easily in my hoody pocket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good complication, design, but very intense at 10% As I mentioned in headline - complication is good, quality of plastic and design are nice. I returned it only because of one reason - too intense on the lower position of dimmer. I don't feel like it's 10% it more close to 30-50, as for me. Also I'd like to get a beg to care this stuff, it's not really easy to find pockets for caring it safe in my backpack. So finally I bought Aputure it comes more expensive, because there no battery, but good dimmer, and temperature control is a matter! If you need it for interviews and documentary style it still good, bright and convenient.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but Lumen rating is a lie These are okay if you buy then when they're on sale. Pros: light and thin.� There is a separate on/off switch and a dimmer. This way you can turn of the light to preserve battery between footage without needed to readjust your lighting.� Cons: No external DC power source so as your power declines your light intensity changes. CRI is okay not great. Does not dim below 10% (not an issue for most people). Their claimed lumen brightness is probably exaggerated.� Basically these are okay if you buy them on sale.� But their Lumen rating of "2000 lux at 3.3' (1 m)" exaggerated.� It's probably 30-50% less than what they're claiming.� Their claimed �CRI is >90. It's probably about that. But these days you can get higher CRI value that has even more "life" in color than these.� I would use them for hair light or something like that, but not for the main light if I wanted the best skin tones.� Buy it when it goes on sale for accent light or hair light, otherwise, spend your money on something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light I use it to add light for interviews. It works great for about 4 to 10 feet. It won't light tell whole room, but will add ambient light without burning out the center like the round lights do. It is an even light and fits the HD aspect ratio. The filterse for diffusion and 32K plus the dimmer allows you to adjust for any situation. I will however, be buying the one with barn doors for better directional control. You can add an adapter for using it on a light stand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very bright! This is one of the brightest for the price and size that I have ever bought. I used it mainly for events. It will brighten up whole dance floors if need be. I almost never use it to max setting. On the lower setting it can be too bright for some uses. I don't need dim shots, otherwise I would use another light less powerful. This is my second light I have bought. The only con to this light is that the mount where it bends doesn't hold very tight sometimes and can move if you jerk the camera down or up. So you will need to retighten or watch the jerkiness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice light for run and gun shooting Lightweight and nice information is the LED battery light indicator...No guessing when the battery will die. The lights tell you now...VERY NICE..

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as advertised The build quality is nice and it feels solid. Unfortunately this light does not live up to the specs. It's listed as 2,000 lux at 3'. Its actually more like 500 lux at 3' or 1/4 the rated power. It's also quite inconsistent in it's intensity even with fully charged batteries. If I keep it, it will be because it's a good value. The battery and charger included are worth 2/3 the price I guess.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intensely bright! Amazing price. I have been looking for a replacement to my old on-camera LED (old Thru-hole style) light which was not even half as bright at this amazing little light, and the Vidpro LED-230 is a perfect solution. I actually brought two of them when they were on special, and the two together light up a 15 x 40 room entirely. Amazing, truly amazing. At a size just a little larger than a Samsung Note 8, this is such a good size, and it's light. Comes with a re-chargeable battery and charger, this is a great value.
