Godox VL200 Overview

The VL200 LED Video Light from Godox is a lightweight and compact LED monolite-style light source suitable for portrait, still life, and location photography, and also for video-based applications. The daylight-balanced COB LED features a CRI rating of 96 and TLCI rating of 95, producing highly accurate color renditions and rendering extremely realistic flesh tones. The VL200 light body is operated and powered from an external controller, keeping it compact and lightweight. It features a whisper-quiet fan and an integrated Bowens-style reflector mount, making it compatible with a wide array of light modifiers.

The controller box contains dual V-mount battery plates, and an LCD display with intuitive controls and command dial for making adjustments to the light body locally. Setting can also be adjusted wirelessly using the separately-available radio remote, or by using Bluetooth-enabled portable devices with the GodoxPhoto app, available as a free download for iOS and Android devices.

Controller Box

Moving the V-mount battery plates and light controls out of the light body and into the standalone control box allows easily placing the light wherever it needs to be without the added bulk and weight of large V-mount cells. The controller box comes complete with a 4-pin XLR type power cable for easy placement. It features an antenna for the separately-available wireless radio remote, and a Bluetooth antenna for using the GodoxPhoto app on iOS or Android portable devices.

Great light for recreating sunlight, shooting through thick Un-bleached Muslim, Huge 84 Softboxes. Etc...

I purchased this light for video and portraits with a soft box. It is powerful and evenly lit. I've kept it on for hours at a time with little to no noise or noticeable heating issues. You can also adjust via smartphone app which is convenient in certain situations.

Good Light

I caught this light at $465.00 with free shipping. I feel like that is a fair price. I could use one or two more but will monitor the used market unless they bring the price back down. No problems yet, seems well built.

So far...

First light I received was DOA. It looked like the power cable was packed with an extreme amount of strain on the connection point. Don’t know if it’s a manufacturer issue or a B&H thing. Either way, I will be making sure to focus more attention when packing the power supply. The carrying case is a really nice added bonus.

On shoot day two of a competitors brand new lights died and I had just received this the day before. This took the place of the dead key light for two full days of shooting. I only had it at 64% and it did a great job. Overall it felt solid and well built compared to sl60. The longevity has yet to be determined but so far I'm happy with it.

Well made, extremely bright, professional light

This is a powerhouse of a light, well built and extremely bright. B&H had a temporary deal for this light that brought it down to a similar price point as the VL150 so I pulled the trigger. So far I've used it to augment the sunlight coming in the clear windows of a church and it has enough power to make a difference. I cannot think of a downside to this light, especially considering the price point. I've paired it with the Good octagonal soft box which is very useful to soften the otherwise extremely powerful light source. I expect this to be an important part of my lighting kit for years to come.

Definitely better than the SLs

I have a SL150 and a couple of SL60s. I needed some thing much quieter than the SL150 as my key and the VL200 is orders of magnitude quieter. The fit and finish is better in every way. A really good update from the SLs. I always buy Godox around Xmas when there are lots of good deal so they aren't that much more expensive. I just wish they worked with the Godox Light app.

Great Light, somethings to consider

By Mitch

This is a fantastic light. I also have the VL150 and tend to use that one more because its is smaller. Not just the light head itself but the controller and the power block are much larger as well. The VL150 only requires one v-mount battery to power compared to two on this fixture. That being said the VL200 can be nice for a bit of extra brightness and balances nicely with larger modifiers. Would recommend but It's worth considering your use case whether it's the right light for you.
