The Manfrotto LYKOS Bi-Color On-Camera LED Light is a modern-style, highly user-oriented on-camera light with a lot of punch.
The 48 SMT LEDs (Surface Mount Technology), designed for improved
optical efficiency, feature a >93 CRI high color accuracy and provide
1500 lux max brightness at 3.3 ft. The color-temperature is adjustable
by a dial on the side from 3000K tungsten to 5600K daylight, and this
will allow for use in different environments. Brightness is adjustable
flicker-free by a 100-0% dimmer next to the color dial.
The dials are positioned next to the handle on the side of the light, so
you'll have them right at your fingertips when you adjust the light
into position using the handle. The color and brightness adjustments can
also be made remotely via an iPhone app by incorporating an optional
LYKOS Bluetooth Dongle. This can be very useful when you have the light
mounted on a tripod and especially when you're using multiple units.
There's also an LCD display on the rear that shows all the dialed in
settings, and its background color is light blue, which will make
reading it easier in darker environments, and which generally has a
richer, more modern look. The LCD provides info on the color
temperature, brightness, battery status, and more.
The light features a recessed L Series battery mount on the rear
supporting all Sony and third-party L-Series batteries. It also comes
with an AC adapter that will get you started right away and that can be
used for continuous studio power. A diffusion gel is also supplied, and
you can also attach an optional LYKOS LED Softbox to achieve more
effective diffusion. Two 1/4"-20 mounting threads are available: one on
top, one on the bottom.
