The Bescor LED-70 is an on-camera, dimmable, daylight balanced (6500°K) LED light designed to combine bright output with a compact, highly flexible form factor. Powered by either 4 standard AA batteries or an optional AC power adapter, the unit's 96 LED bulbs produce an ultra bright, 70W-equivalent beam with a reach of up to 30 feet. Suitable for both video and DSLR cameras, the LED-70 includes a clear frosted filter for softening glare as well as an amber 4300°K correction filter for shooting indoors.

    Bescor LED-70 reviews

    LED-70 Dimmable 70W Video & DSLR Light is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 355.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't Fit Sony Camcorders I bought this to replace a 3-watt Sony light that drained my Sony HDR-HC7's battery. The illumination is an incredible step up, while using far less power (and none from my camcorder, thanks to the built-in battery compartment on the light.) However, I did not realize that this light will not fit my camcorder's accessory shoe without an adapter. I haven't bought the adapter yet, because I'm not exactly sure which one I need. It would have been helpful for the product description to point this out. Bescor could make some money if it would offer the adapters. Construction is a bit on the cheap side, but so is the price -- so not a bad compromise, in my eyes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I got it!! I had to shoot a wedding and reception last weekend. It's been a while since I've covered a reception, but I know how reception caterers love to dim the lights for a romantic atmosphere. My older video lights ate batteries for lunch, and in the past LED lights were very pricey. Now these 70 watt equivalent lights are available for just under $$.00. I ordered 2 (2 cameras). They worked perfectly adding enough light in the darkest dancing environment to enable good clean video capturing with my Canon HF-G10. Surprisingly, they did not seem obtrusive, no one seemed to notice we were using lights. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LITTLE LIGHT! I've given it 5 stars, despite the comments about flimsy design from other reviewers. That's because I feel you can't expect to get top quality on all levels at this price range. The light is bright (though, it does fall off quickly; best for close up interviews, etc.). It's lightweight, so is a great on-camera light (plus has 1/4 screw-moount for tripod use). True, you can only dim to 50%, but trust me, you won't want to dim it any more than that (if at all). All in all, I think it's an impressive little light, and nice to have on hand for low light situations that arise. Oh, and the color seems a bit bluish, even with the yellow filter. But, I still like the product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great price but a little flimsy I am a professional News gathering Camera man for a National TV Station in Canada. I bought this to try out for myself and then decided to give it a try in the field. Overall the little light is good. Projects well and even in cloudy days can add a little fill to your subject in a scrum situation. For everyday use in the field is a little too flimsy and will probably not last long. It is made of plastic and I had to buy a shoe adpter to use it with My Sony PMW-500. Overall if you're gonna use it like myself in the field gathering news everyday, maybe think of investing in something a little more durable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent light for the price I'm an event / wedding videographer. I use this light to fill during receptions in low light situations. The light is bright and does well to give an even wash. As bright as it is, I don't seem to get the squinting reactions I used to get when I used my old incandescent camera lights. I added some diffuser paper to calm it down a little. Would be nice if the dimmer went down to 0% instead of just 50%. Also, bad placement of A/C power jack on the bottom. It prevents the light from being mounted on the camera when optional power cord is used. Must be an engineering oops. Cheap plastic construction. Be gentle with it. Over all, good light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little light This thing is bright. If you're up very close with someone, the lowest setting might still be a little too much. Can't comment much on the colour the light gives; most of what I've shot so far has been in black-and-white. Another comment complained the brightness control was hard to use. It's true, most of the change in output occurs in the first quarter of control or so, but within that quarter I've found it easy to get exactly the output I'm looking for. I like using this as an eye light. Set it on the lowest setting, use other lighting to set up the scene, and watch your subjects eyes light up. Very light, even with batteries, and small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you always do what you always done... I don't understand when people try to conduct interviews with light, even in the day time hours. I don't care what type of camera you have you need light, no light no picture...lost client. This is a inexpensive camera light that works. If you take care of it, it will take care of you. It work so well that I went back and purchased another one and two of my friends purchased one each, also. I quest its my background of commercial photographer where you realize the value of a light, or you better know how to use reflectors, or you better get use to tunafish sandwichs, if you don't believe me!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brite Light The Led light works just fine for my purposes, about 30', but other incondecent minor side lighting equaling about 75 watts, in use. Best if you stay in the 20' distance area.. The Lights, dimmer works fine, if still to brite just add 1 of the included diffusers (or Amber for warming skin tones), to soften the light.. Durability, time will tell.. The only directions are on the box,especially on diffuser removal.. The attactchment mount is solid, even tho it doesn't look it.. The trouble with LED's is, as the battery power drops, so does the light (Lumins) output(Dimmer). So keep a good supply of Alkaline batteries..
