Based off of the same body that can be powered off a single Sony NP-F style camcorder battery, the 312 / 508 / 876 LED Video Lights can offer truly ‘off-the-grid’ shooting using some of the cheapest rechargeable batteries available.

14Nov 1000w Fresnel LED Product Overview


Tweet

Mike Peterson writes in and shares his opinion on those new LED video lights that are being sold online as 1000w LED Fresnels. So far there really hasn’t been much complaint over the actual build quality, as they are using the same aluminum housings as the ‘As Arri’ light kits (seen here) with a high [...]

15Oct Trending Gear: LED Fresnel Lighting


Tweet
Jesse writes in and shares some new LED Video lights in the form of Fresnels [Thanks Jesse]. One unit looks to be using the ‘As Arri’ style housing. To be more accurate, one of these units do not provide an actual fresnel lens, so it would be considered more of an LED spotlight. Both units [...]

25Jan Cineroid L2C-3K Daylight Tungsten On-Camera LED Video Light


Tweet

The good folks over at EVSOnline gives you a peek at Cineroid’s L2C-3K LED Video light. Instead of providing two different LEDs which normally cuts your output in half, they decided to provide options for swapping out ALL of the LEDs. Of course this means you can’t dial in mixed temperatures. It definitely looks like [...]

Tweet

The Z96 next to the latest W12. If you don’t know the story, the W12 is pretty much an exact form factor replica of the Z96 except they’ve replaced the LED lights with high power ones.

27Nov Latest 12 High Power LED Video Light

Interesting development on the makers of the W96 LED light. They’ve taken all the features of the popular Z96, and then replaced the bulbs with 12 high power LEDs. The bulbs are different, but it still accepts the same battery types from Sony to (5) AA. The housing has a rubberized coating, dimmable with snap [...]

12Sep Latest – 209AS Bi-Color LED Video Light


Tweet

This new 209 LED video light is the smaller version of the popular 312 LED video light, but slightly larger than the smallest 144 Bi-Color LED Video Light. It’s definitely a welcome size for those who feel the 144 too small and the 312 too big. In fact I ended up purchasing several of the [...]

Serge received an early version from [...]
