The Metz LED-480 Mecalight LED Light is designed to slide onto the hot shoe of your camera or camcorder and illuminate your subject. The mecalight LED-480 LED video light has 72 High CRI LEDs (LEDs with a high colour rendering index) and provides illuminance of 480 Lux. The light output from the mecalight LED-480 can be individually and continuously regulated from 0-100% as required using a dimming wheel on the back of the device. The mecalight LED-480 can also be modularly adapted to the mecalight LED-160 in any combination desired. This allows illuminance to be increased correspondingly. The LED-480 takes four AA batteries or rechargeable batteries. Included is the operating instructions, diffuser filter and artificial light filter (3200K) which attach magnetically to the light. More
Flexibility in every scene
Creative lighting control is often required for video production. The mecalight Flex Arm FH-100 lends itself perfectly to such use. The FH-100 is bendable, which allows the mecalight LED video light to be optimally positioned. This is ideal for macro shots as it allows the subject to be particularly well lit from different angles. The Flex Arm FH-100 is sold as a separate accessory and joins two mecalight LED video lights together.
Diffuse light for every scene
The colour temperature of the mecalight LED video lights LED-480, LED-320 and LED-160 is 5600 Kelvin. In order to provide flexible illuminance for various types of shots, a 3200K artificial light filter and a diffuser filter are also available with the LED lights. These ensure particularly soft and harmonious lighting. The filters can be quickly and easily attached to the LED video lights using magnet holders.
More than enough light for every scene
The mecalight LED-480 LED video light has 72 High CRI LEDs (LEDs with a high colour rendering index) and provides illuminance of 480 Lux. The LED- 320, with its 48 High CRI LEDs, provides illuminance of 320 Lux and the small LED-160 has 24 High CRI LEDs and an illuminance value of 160 Lux. The light output from the mecalight LED-480 and LED-320 can be individually and continuously regulated from 0-100% as required using a dimming wheel on the back of the device. The mecalight LED-480 and LED-320 can be modularly adapted to the mecalight LED-160 in any combination desired. This allows illuminance to be increased correspondingly. The power supply is provided by four AA batteries or rechargeable batteries for the LED-480, four AAA batteries or rechargeable batteries for the LED-320 and two AAA batteries or rechargeable batteries for the LED-160.
A happy ending for every scene
Modern camcorders and the new DSLR and system cameras increasingly have a Full-HD video function, affording numerous new and exciting application possibilities for amateur film makers. However, it also means an increase in the demands placed on illumination. With Metz mecalight, the new LED video lighting range, you can light up every scene to perfection.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Metz LED-480 Mecalight LED Light:
I have found a pair of these useful for product photography when working with small objects. Fitting a couple of cheap table-top tripods allows you plenty of choice in a restricted space. Probably even more useful with a clamp and gooseneck support.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A simple solution to lighting
A good and cheap way of providing video lighting with both DSLR and Camcorder systems. Can be linked to other panels to create a three-panel source to put even more light in your scenes.The intensity is set with a really simple knob on the back which allows continuous variation of the light output.No obvious hotspot and the diffuser and filter (supplied) simply clip on and off with magnets. You can also use gels carefully attached to the plain diffuser to create your own effects.Range is good and when compared to the costs that some camcorder manufacturers charge for what is basically a torch, this is a much better option as well as being half the price.I use mine with both my DSLR cameras and Camcorders. great little gadget for your kit bag.
