Ultralight 2 or equivalent. Use a video light powered
by 12 V with maximum power consumption of 30 W.
• If you connect the video light to the video light
connector on the DSR-300/300P (page 22) and set
the LIGHT switch to AUTO (page 12), you can turn
the light on and off automatically as you start and
stop VCR operation.
• The output of the video light connector on the DSR-
300/300P is controlled to 12 V even when the
camcorder is supplied with 12 V or more power
(through the DC IN connector or battery pack). The
brightness or color temperature of the light will not
change according to voltage increase.
• Do not use the video light with power consumption of
over 30 W.
• The brightness or color temperature of the light will
change when the supplied voltage is under 12 V.
To fit the video light

accessory shoe on the viewfinder and connect the
video light cable to the video light connector.
