Sunpak VL-LED-30 overview

  • 1Description

The Sunpak LED 30 Video Light mounts to your video DSLR or camcorder to cast even, 6500K daylight on your subjects. The 30-LED light features a dimmer knob so you can adjust the brightness to suit your exact needs. Supplying a 4300K color-correction filter and a diffuser and running on AA batteries, the LED 30 represents a simple yet versatile solution for on-camera lighting.

The LED 30 light attaches either to your camera's shoe mount or, via its 1/4"-20 thread, to a tripod or light stand (a 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 adapter may be necessary). Your captured video will exhibit better color, clarity, and contrast. For reduced glare or for softening highlights, just install the included diffuser. To produce more naturalistic skin tones, use the supplied 4300K color-correction filter.

LED technology offers even lighting without producing heat. Relative to other solutions, power consumption is extremely low. This model is extremely lightweight at just 5.9 oz (without batteries or filters).

Note: Requires 4x AA (alkaline or NiMH) batteries – not included.

    Sunpak VL-LED-30 reviews

    LED 30 Video Light is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Just as advertised. This is a great little camera light. It illuminates an area very nicely. I was turned on to this product by a friend. It won't flood out an entire room, but an Anton Bauer Ultralight won't either. Don't have unrealistic expectations, and you'll have realistic results. The only issue I had was being able to see the battery placement markings on the top. Yes, it's a series connection. Don't look at the springs in the bottom, and the contacts on the lid, then let that fool you. It did for me, but a quick call solved it all. Thanks, B&H. You guys always have those odds-and-ends that you tend to need in your camera bag, but not have.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok, for the price I used this led light not on a camcorder but on my DSLR eos Canon rebel camera. I like the fact that the light is continuous so I can see how the light looks on my subject matter. I can use this product on my camera or on my tripod or just position it with my free hand. I also like that it is a nice soft white natural looking light. However, I wish it was more powerful. It works best for small subjects that I can position the light about 6 away at full strength. I use it for filling in the shadows when the main light is coming in from a window. In bright sunlight it doesn't really make any difference. Considering that a typical flash can cost so much more and creates results that look less natural, This Led light will still be a usefull tool in the right setting (indoor still subjects.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Bright Light and the Price is Right! This light was bought on a whim. I needed some extra light for filming in low lit venues. For the price, I got everything I expected out of it. When I bought it, on sale I was surprised and enthralled on what a great light and value this is! Pros- Small enough to accompany any gig bag. The light is bright enough light an entire room and then some. The Dimmer is a huge help. Cons- 4AA batteries power this device. You can see where I am going with this... Also, this is my personal problem, I have to keep track of my power switch. I have found my light on in a while in my bag. But with a proper case or placement. Should not be an issue. I'd recommend buying 2 or 3.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Budget in Price and Build Quality I bought two and one of them was missing the battery cover and its dimmer switch did not work on unpacking. Very pleasing that B&H readily posted a replacement unit to Australia at no cost. The lights are very cheaply made hence the budget price. I bought them for macro SLR lighting. Even at close distances and full power they can only be a fill light at macro ie f16-22 apertures. They do help with auto focusing. The main light will still be my Canon 580 on camera flash with a diffuser.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very good product The main reason I like this light is it has a very narrow light pattern. I would say about a 30* spread with a nice soft edge pattern. It also has the jack for a 6 volt ac adapter. I plan on purchasing another one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed this years ago- I will be using this Sunpak light on my main camcorder as I track the brides and grooms through their wedding day. I like the compact size of this light that produces a prodigious amount of light. The dimmer knob rolls smoothly up and down as it smoothly, continuously alters the light output. You get 3 choices--raw light output, diffused output using the clear slide-in lens, or color-corrected output using the red-tinted lens. I love the fact that it uses inexpensive AA batteries for power and does not draw from my camcorder battery. I will insert it into my cold-shoe mount on top of the camera for use. The weight of it is substantial but not prohibitive. It feels solid. I can think of no cons about this light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for A Great Price (Now I know why you guys reviewed =P ) Anywho, I didn't expect this light to be as powerful as it is- Thumbs up! Only thing that worried me was one of my tiny circular bulbs being out in the top corner, but upon dropping it (nothing too harsh.. from my hands onto carpet), it was banged back on! (See why people always bang on things? It's the solution! - sometimes anyway.) I am careful with the battery cover as others have mentioned it could be better. All in all great product. Came with two filters.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent light but cheaply built Don't get me wrong, I grabbed two of these to use as miscellaneous kickers and they're great for that. The design is decent and it uses standard AA batteries which is nice... but the build quality is pretty low. Seems like it could break easily. Glad I bought 'em on sale ;)
