    ID-Light 100W Focus Flood Light, 4-Pin XLR (12-30VDC) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy for On Camera Use! As professional wedding videographers, we have gone through FOUR (4) of the Cam-Links (the adapter that attaches the light to the hot shoe on the camcorder). The fins on the Cam-Link that slide into the hot shoe are PLASTIC and easily break. This is a REAL BIG PROBLEM that Lowel is unwilling to address. Their answer? They will replace the Cam-Link each time it breaks. So now we have an on-camera light that we cannot use on our camera because it will eventually break and fall off of the camera. PLUS, the Universal Mounting Bracket (UMB) comes loose and cannot be tightened in the field, as the housing must be disassembled to re-tighten it. ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am loving it. I purchased this light after seening entries on the net that a couple other photographers use it for wedding Photography, and I quite like it, so I purchased it from B&H. I like the fact that it allow you to dimm and focus. The light is spread quite evently, I have only used it once in a real wedding and I am loving it. My battery (small) only last 1/2 hour with full power (100W) and 1/2 power will last an hour and that is enough for me for now as I don't use it in every shot, only the occasional shot that I use it. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wish to purchase a Video Light for Photography purpose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Change the way you shoot I purchased this light professionally for weddings portraits and it has changed the way I shoot. Used with the Nikon D3 the continuous light is the best thing I can recommend. Until now I couldn't understand the benefits of continuous light Vs flash. The big issue is not waiting for a flash to recharge and you can shoot for expression and emotion. Simply dial in the best light balance and start shooting it's that simple. You do need to brush up on your skills of placing the light. Not a big deal really. So I can highly recommend this light to anyone who wants to open the door to new ways of shooting that result in better images. I would also recommend the NiMh battery. Its very light and packs a punch of power. JUST BUY IT and USE IT

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't buy again without a design change We bought this light for use on both a stand and on our video camera to illuminate dance floors at wedding receptions. Seemed like a nice kit - dimmer, different mounting solutions. But, #1. the Cam-Link adapter that comes with the kit is made out of plastic. (This is the male part that slides into the female hot shoe on the camcorder.) The plastic fins on the Cam-Link broke twice within three months. ... #2. The Universal Mounting Bracket (UMB) that is attached to the housing of the light, is attached with a rivet. I can't speak for other units, but ours became loose after a short time, and there is no way to tighten it (it's a rivet). So now we have a wobbly light, that can't be used on our camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great warm light source Product is used for portrait photography when a warm light source is needed. The adjustable strength and focus/width of the beam is great though the focus is slightly finnicky (i.e. goes from wide to narrow to slightly wider when it should be getting narrower). Definitely recommended esp with the lighter battery pack for mobility and versatility. I had a fault with the charger, which B&H immediately sent out a replacement for!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but useful I bought this video light for occasional use at weddings. It's great for lighting detail shots in low light situations, and even better for bride/groom portraits in low light. Allows you to create some really moody and dramatic portraits. Definitely go for the smaller, lighter, NiMH battery pack. Admittedly the light is a little expensive (considering a heavy duty ... flashlight can serve almost the same purpose), but it's the best option for being able to control the light intensity and beam diameter (flood - spot).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lighting made easy...so easy Buy this now, don't even think it over. Its a great light. Learn to use it, teach your assistant to hold it and you just added some game!!! Ive had two of these for over a year now and they are the perfect accessory for cool lighting ( technically warm) Buy the stud link and handle, then a random bag strap and you or your asst can wear this battery around your waist. Its a tiny battery and ive gotten an hour max from it at night ( all ive needed)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to your lighting kit. We are wedding photographers and wanted a fast and easy light source for bridal portraits and for adding light when needed for winter weddings when the sun is down at 5pm. I'm also a fan of the soft old-Hollywood look you can achieve with this kind of lighting.We tested the light out at our last wedding and were pleased with the quick set up and portability of the Lowel. This video light tends to be the choice of photographers because it allows you to adjust the intensity of the light and accepts modifiers. We used the diffusion glass and the barndoors (purchased separately) and were happy with both. The light can be mounted to a tripod, monopod, or a handle-type accessory. I suggest attaching it to something, because it will get hot and a handle/monopod allows for easier handling. While I suppose you could use this light with a tripod, it's really best handheld by an assistant who can move it. Battery life is limited, so this isn't ideal for long shoots, but for quick portrait sessions where you just need some extra light to add drama. This light isn't bright enough to let you shoot at 100 ISO in a dark room, but it will make the difference between a noisy, underexposed photo and a properly exposed one at an acceptable ISO. We typically shoot at ISO 640-800 with this light, for example. If you are new to off camera lighting, you may find this to be an accessible, and less intimidating way to get started, instead of more complicated alternatives like off-camera flashes or monolights. The continuous light source basically means what you see is what you get, so you can experiment and make changes on the fly, and you can meter off the light, rather than tinkering with manual flash exposures. There is obviously no need for complications like wireless triggers, etc., which again makes it a good alternative to someone new to lighting. Just find someone willing to help hold the light and get creative!
