Looking for a light to attach to your camera to illuminate your shots? The Drawing Board has just released a new episode covering the latest on-camera lighting solutions from ikan—the iLED6 and the iLED312-v2.
The iLED6 is a powerful and versatile on-camera light with a color temperature of 5600K. It has a high 93 CRI rating, and is a great LED solution for live events such as red carpets, weddings, concerts, BTS live shows, and interviews. It has inclusive and adjustable barn doors, along with a built-in tungsten gel and diffuser gel. The iLED6 features an easy-to-access rotary knob for 0-100% luminance adjustments and it’s spread can easily be adjusted from spot to flood. The iLED6 includes a Sony “L” series battery and battery charger, a shoe mount and AC power supply.
The second version of our popular 312-series LEDs, the iLED312-v2 is loaded with accessory options and upgrades. A digital readout display and LCD battery life indicator now supplement Dimming and Color Temperature analog controls located on the rear of the fixture. Luminance adjustment settings from 0-100% and color temperatures between 3200K and 5600K are clearly displayed and easily repeatable. The iLED312-v2’s wide-angle beam pattern has a high 82 CRI rating, and it can be diffused and shaped by the detachable Diffusion Filter and Barn Doors. In addition, the iLED312-v2 includes 2 Sony “L” Series DV Batteries, a Dual Battery Charger, Soft Carrying Case, and Ultra-Heavy Duty Shoe Mount.
Need more light? The iLED312-v2 also has horizontal and vertical interlock options that allow you to attach multiple 312 lights to one another in an array configuration. As an optional accessory, the PS-312 mini insert slate slides right into the gel frame of the iLED312. This small yet strong LED light illuminates the entire PS-312, making your shot labels more visible and clear, especially during shots in areas or times of lowlight. Warm and Vivid pre-cut Gel Kits are also available for the iLED312-v2.
Alternatively, both the iLED6 and iLED312-v2 can be mounted to a light stand to assist with 3-point lighting. Many filmmakers today are utilizing smaller, lightweight LED light kits that are powerful, yet easy to transport, especially for smaller productions, documentaries and interview setups.
ikan strives to continue to bring more affordable innovations and solutions, like the iLED6 and the iLED312-v2, to today’s filmmakers. Be sure to check out future episodes of The Drawing Board for the latest filmmaking solutions from ikan.
