The Dedolight DLOBML2-BI-SH Ledzilla Mini LED Daylight On-Camera Light packs a lot of punch into a small package. It is a bi-color small on-board camera light that features Dedolight double aspheric optics for an smooth/consistent beam spread. The bi-color designation means that you can vary the color temperature of the light from 3200 to 5600K so you don’t need to use gel or dichroic filters to change the lights color temperature. It is worth nothing that the lights brightness does not change as you vary the color temp from 3200 to 5600K and back again, which happens with many other bi-color lights. The unit focuses from 4 to 56° with a flip-up diffuser that spreads the beam more horizontally than vertically making it more consistent with the wider aspect ratio of current productions. The light also features built-in barndoors for a sharp shadow or a gentle light-shadow transition.
The Light is flicker free from 100 to 1%, with no color shifts. The unit mounts to your camera, and features an adjustable support arm allows you to position the light above and forward of the camera. Plus very low power consumption (8W) considering the output, the ability to power from any 6 to 18V source using an optional power cable (including any Anton Bauer or PAG system, car cigarette lighter output or battery belt), or using the included battery shoe that allows you to power the light from an optional Sony NP-F type battery. The light incorporates a front-end bayonet for future accessories.
This bi-color light features a color temperature range of 3200 to 5600K, allowing you to use it with tungsten or daylight balanced lighting set ups without needing a gel or dichroic filter to match the color temperature of your other lights.
The light is continuously variable between 3200 and 5600K.
The brightness level of the light remains constant as you change the color temperature, which is notable as many other bi-color LED lights will change brightness as you adjust the color temperature of the unit.
Unlike most LED lights, this light unit focuses from -4° to 56°
Wide-angle flip-up diffuser for 70° angle spreads the beam more horizontally than vertically (1:1.66), which is consistent with the wide angle aspect ratio of current productions.
Converts from daylight to tungsten via a dichroic flip-down filter
Adjustable support arm allows it to be positioned above and forward of the camera
