Light enough to go anywhere.
Enough light to go everywhere!
Flashpoint 's BiColor 198B on-camera portable LED light provides action videographers and still photographers who use DSLR's and HD camcorders with a bi-color wash of illumination from a standard 60° spread. The precision color temperature dial regulates between 3200-5600K to provide lightening fast solutions for the 'run and gun' shooters, moving from one lighting situation to the next ambient environmental challenge. Our LED lights provide visually accurate color temperatures, flicker-free output, and no color shift when dimming. When used outdoors, the small, self-contained LED light produces copious fill light to alleviate deep shadows, while blending ambient available light to add modeling to subjects.
Super lightweight, this 'go anywhere' device fits comfortably atop the hot shoe of your camera or off-camera via the convenient stand thread. The power options uses almost any capacity industry standard Sony or Panasonic type lithium battery cells and can be run off universally available AA's as well. This 198B model offers a clear digital battery power level verification for the ever vigilant. Brightness levels are controlled by stepless control dials on the rear, assure flicker free shooting.
The light can be linked by means of hotshoe type tracks to dovetail on vertical and horizontal configurations with sister units to create a multi-panel power array.
The latest LED technology.
Uncompromised light quality.
Unheard of value.
One of the brightest advances in technology is the advent of the light-emitting diode (LED), a two-lead semiconductor light source. When an appropriate voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron 'holes' within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the color of the light is determined by the specific energy band gap of the semiconductor.
Impressed yet? No?
LEDs are small, durable and need little power, so they are used in LED strobe lights or continuous camera lights without detrimental heat output, and operate at a safe, low voltage, instead of the 250+ volts commonly found in xenon strobe tube-based lighting. This is especially useful in lighting for videographers, where space is at a premium and bulky voltage-raising circuitry is undesirable.
Each LED gem glows with exceptional brilliance of light and human genius that old Thomas Edison would have surely appreciated.
