After falling in love with the 198 Bi-Color LED Camera Light I decided it was time to invest in a smaller, more travel-friendly LED light. I decided on the Godox LED 64 Dimmable Camera Light(View amazon detail page). I recently put this LED camera light to the test and found it super handy and easy to use for food shots.
- I have more control over light and shadows
- It fits in my hand comfortably, and I can hold the light and take a photo easily (1.5 x 4.7 x 5.5 inches)
- It fits inside a pocket, both loose pants, and jackets
- Like the 198 light, it has a brightness dial
- You can attach the light to your camera, but I prefer to hold it for more light control (If you do want to attach it, it fits a variety of different camera – Nikon, Fuji, Canon, Olympus, etc.
The only thing I wish it did come with was a case.
Now I find that I’m using the 198 Bi-Color LED Camera Light for larger areas, like dimly lit hotel rooms.

Here is that same photo, edited in PaintShop Pro. It has brightened up some but has potential to be a lot better.
Now here is that same photo with the Godox LED Camera light. All this requires is moving the light up and down until you like how the light is hitting your object, and then you shoot. Now, I rarely edit my food shots which saves me time on the back end of posting, and I have much better quality photos to submit to publications.
As you can see, my shadow is in this picture. So I needed to do some maneuvering.
Pretty big difference, right?
I want you to take amazing foodie shots too, so I am giving away a Godox LED 64 Dimmable Camera Light.
