About Switronix TorchLED

The Switronix TorchLED Bolt On-Camera LED Light is a 200W-equivalent light for attaching to the top of your camera - or (likely via an adapter) to a light stand for use as a "sun gun" on a set or on location. The 16-LED light is powerful enough to use as a fill light outdoors. The TorchLED features a brightness and throw (40-50') that put it in the range of halogen lights.

If it has a free Powertap output, you can use your existing 14.4V DC brick-style battery for powering this light - a Powertap cable is included. Alternatively, the TorchLED Bolt accepts a Sony L-Series-style battery to supply the needed power. Though it puts out the equivalent of 200W incandescent light, it draws just 22W at maximum light output. At 4100K, which is a blend of full 3000K and 6000K light, the illumination is 3800 lux at 3.3' (1 m).

Switronix TorchLED Features

  • TorchLED Bolt features two knobs for controlling the 5-100% dimming of 3000K light and 6000K light. Once optimal color temperature is set, the on/off switch can be used to preserve the mixture of the two color-temperature sources
  • Comes with a carrying case, a snap-on filter holder and one diffusion gel

High intensity & focused throw = winner


from Seattle  -  Filmmaker

Owning this light won't make you a better filmmaker. Or will it? It's made me a better one, because now it's so easy to do the right thing – add that rim light, dial in that fill, tweak that color temp – that I'm actually doing it, instead of thinking about it. Having a Bolt in your bag arms you with a powerful light that delivers on the promise that LED lighting has been whispering for years: cool light when you need it, where you need it, no cords attached.
