The Flaspoint 500C LED dimmable light is a rather compact and affordable LED solution from Adorama. The light features 500 individual LED bulbs – 250 of which are daylight balanced and 250 of which are tungsten balanced.
The two sets of LED bulbs are controlled by two independent dimmer knobs. As a result, you have a fully dimmable light and a variable color temperature light. Both are pretty cool features for a $200 video light. [click to continue…]
The Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid is a new flash and continuous output light source that is geared toward DSLR shooters who crossover between stills and video. The MicroPro Hybrid is an LED light source that draws 9 watts and operates on 6 AA batteries. Because it uses LED bulbs, almost no heat is generated from the device.
The continuous light mode is fully dimmable from 0% to 100%, while the “flash” feature produces a 400% brighter burst. To enable the flash feature, you just need to plug the MicroPro into your camera’s PC port.
The MicroPro Hybrid includes a ball head shoe mount with a 1/4-20 thread. Of course, it can also be mounted off-camera for other lighting situations.
The MicroPro Hybrid delivers 5600° K daylight balanced output and includes three filters – a 3200° K filter, a 1/4 warming filter and a diffusion filter.
