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
