Brightens a pretty good area for close up lighting. compact. Batteries make it heavy but required for the brightness is provides. Awesome. Not really good when following along a subject unless it's short distance from camera. Great buy nonetheless. Perfect for photography... mobility and easy carry. Pack friendly.

Really love this light but.....

I do video production and youtube vids mainly, utilizing a green screen. This is a really great light if used on its own to fill the talent with light. It's very nice and love everything that comes with it. If you use the diffuser, lighting is good and soft within about 5' of the light. If you need it brighter, you must remove the magnetic diffuser. This will get you nice light from 10'-15', within 10' being the best. The only issue I had is that I am currently using high powered studio lights of 500 watts to light up a green screen behind me. This light is not bright enough to light the talent in front of the green screen properly, since the green screen lights are much brighter. So it's really not the light having an issue, it's just not bright enough to light the talent if you are using much brighter lights around. Just an fyi. I have to use the bright energy-consuming lights when using green screen, but other than that, this light is awesome! I have read it is wobbly while on the camera and this is true. It just doesn't tighten up that much and it's wobbly. I need to Mcuyver some rubber gasket or something between this and where it mounts to the camera. I recommend this! Very light and pro.

Bought this for my daughter who is into making youtube videos. We researched lighting techniques and especially single-lights, and settle on this light for the varying intensity and adjustable color balance. Reviews that say the on-camera mount is flimsy; we found it had a tight mount that is not flimsy at all. As my daughter continues with her videos, I believe I will get another of these, or perhaps too. I like that is operate using her camera batteries. The set is complete with everything you need. On full intensity, it is brighter that the sun.

I love this light!

I am a professional photographer/ videographer, shooting for the last 30 years. I have seen a lot of changes since my Canon F1. This light is remarkable. The quality of light is beautiful and the diffuser is stunning. I have used it for 2 video interviews and 1 stills session and was delighted with the result. I had no problem with the color temperature as some people have stated. I was so happy with it, I have just ordered a second one. It's a great tool to add to my lighting systems.

A lot of 'Bang' for the buck

This is one great, no so little, light. The Vidpro Varicolor 312-Bulb LED light is a variable intensity, variable color temperature camera mounted light. It is light-weight but packs heavy-duty performance with great battery life from the two Sony type L series batteries mounted on the back. Color temperature is adjustable from 3200K-5600K. The magnetically attached diffuser makes it a piece of cake to add a gel for your creative light scenes. This light also makes a great hand-held light by mounting it on a cold-shoe handle or bracket. I like it so much I bought a second one!

Very good product

This light is more powerful than I expected. Excellent as a fiend on camera light. And powerful enough to consider buying 2 more to use a 3 point lighting or for small interviews. Extremely portable and easy to use.

How would this be attached to a sony a6500?
Asked by: Sandra C.
In the items picture, you can see the hot-shoe to ball-mount the light is sitting on. Put the mounts foot into the camera's hot-shoe. The hot shoe is located on top of the camera, to the right of the eyepiece. You may have to remove the hot-shoe cap. You might also consider using a bracket like this: Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket with Silicon Rubber Grip B&H # VECB510.
