GVB Gear GVBPL12 overview

  • 1Description

The GVB Gear Compact Daylight On-Camera Light features a built-in battery that powers the light at full brightness for two hours when fully charged. The fixture outputs a light with a CRI rating between 95 and 97, and a 120° beam angle. The fixture produces an output with a brightness of 900 lux at a distance of 1.6', and 430 lux at 3.3' with the included diffusion filter.

The diffusion filter softens the beam and attaches to the fixture magnetically, helping to keep the weight down. The diffusion also holds the CTO gel in place when you want to convert the light's output from daylight to tungsten. A hinged cold shoe adapter allows you to mount the fixture onto a camera, and an included phone clamp enables mounting the light onto select Smartphones.

    GVB Gear GVBPL12 reviews

    Compact Daylight On-Camera Light with Built-In Battery is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed This is a Great light for shooting video and photography because of the size and adjustable range of brightness. The problem is with the size of the magnetic which are too small to keep the diffuser and gel attached. Upon my first time out the diffuser came off and was lost as I do event photography. You would have to tape it down to keep together. The diffusers are not sold separately and upon contacting GVB support there has been no reply after a week. I even tried contacting the number on their website which immediately picks up and hangs up. For these reasons I do not recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should Have Bought Two Outstanding light output from a small source.� Will provide enough light to read a book from 10 feet away in an otherwise unlit room.� Mounted on hot shoe, it should provide good lighting coverage for 100mm macro lens if your working distance is about 4 inches.� Sturdy enough for the price, so should last well if treated with ordinary care.� Only possible downside is that the spacing of the LEDs makes the light act as if it is four point sources close together, so you may see multiple shadows if you film close to a solid light-colored background.� Wide beam width makes it better than any flashlight, so should have gotten two for travel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just got it, but already proving it's value! Still a very new owner of this, didn't get a chance to use with phone or other video recordings yet.� �However, it's an excellent little all-purpose light.� �Had to do some behind-the-desk-crawling-on-the-floor work on some PCs where it's notoriously dark, very difficult to position a flashlight or other traditional light source while I worked (amidst all the tangle of cables and whatnot).� �With this, it was a cinch!� �Had it on a fairly low level, as it was plenty of light for me ... about 30 mins of total use later, still strong battery (3 LEDs)!� �Love this little thing.� �Can't see why it wouldn't be excellent for video, when I get to it :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little light I looked into this and the Aputure M9.� M9 I'm sure is also a great value, but I went with this cause I liked the accesories.� Bright little light, and although I don't think bright enough for use on camera, I've taken to keeping it in my pocket on shoots to do off camera lighting of details at events, which looks nicer.� Haven't tested how long it lasts at full power.� I will note that I don't like the filter situation which is just a gel that goes under the Diffuser.� It shifts around, and is tough to get in there perfectly, so that's annoying, but often I shoot with daylight balance (depends on situation), and anyway with the filter mounted it does the trick for tungsten too.� Good quality color light too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Little Light Great little light that can be used as needed for lighting cinematic scenes. Put it in an actor's hands and adjust brightness to mimic a well-lit cell phone. Stick it on a boom and get a great follow-shot through a dark hallway. Throw a small colored gel on it and add depth to the background and your cinematic image/stage.� Came charged. With a diffuser and additional orange gel - she fires up fast and is adjustable using the scrolling dimmer. Also has a great little pouch that you can take with you in your bag or stick in your car. Perfect for lighting small products when shooting at a client's place as well. One's enough but grab 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Impressions are good! I got this as a promotion with a Moza Air 3. I don't expect much out of these little lights, and I'm sure if I had 5 to test out, this may or might not be the favorite. But I do have this one and it exceed my expectations.� It was much brighter then I had imagined it would be.� And the front cover is magnetic so you can put in your filter between it and the lights. It even comes with a nice case to keep it all together.� No wire for charging but no big deal seeings how we all have lots of them. Would I recommend it?� If your not expecting something to light up a lot of space, then no.� But this might be a great small Vlog option. Either or, I'm happy to have it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overheats I was so excited about these lights due to their size and price. I was thinking about getting the aperture ones but when these went on sale, it was a no-brainer. These little lights are great. However they do get hot very quickly, hot enough to melt color gels. Once they get up to a certain temperature I guess, they just shut off. I am willing to try a different batch but I don’t think I can, in good conscience, recommend these lights.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a punch and incredibly packable I was just playing with this in my hotel room and realized how much I really like this thing.� It's so small, carrying it around in my to-go kit doesn't mean I have to sacrifice something else.� This light is surprisingly bright at full power, but fortunately there's a dimmer that gives you some level of flexibility.� Add to this it comes in a padded case that has a hot shoe mount and a clamp that attaches to your phone, it's a well thought out accessory.� I'm glad I bought two of these if I ever want to have some fill light or background light.� Not saying this will replace my other lighting sources, but if there's something that comes up that I haven't planned for, I have options.
