The Cineroid FL400s is a new, high-CRI, bi-colour and flexible LED light panel, now available from Cineroid. Built with surface mounted LEDs, the FL400S is a new flexible panel light with additional features that make it widely usable for filming and photography. Promising flicker-free performance and a CRI of 94, this is a high-quality light whose output can be used with fast shutter speeds without flickering or scanning lines. At only 25x25cm, the light is small enough to fit in many kit bags. In addition, there is a control interface that adjusts the colour temperature between tungsten and daylight and brightness from 0-100%. It is DMX-compatible for larger, more complex and controlled lighting setups. The included X bracket looks to be much sturdier and easier to attach to the light than other brackets for panel lights that need screwing together. Cineroid FL400S Spec Sheet: Very flexible and waterproof build. In fact, check out the video of washing your LED light above! Please note that only the LED panel is waterproof. CRI=94 high quality light output. Brightness of 2100 Lux at 1m. Dimming from 0-100% Surface mount LEDs for higher power output and a wider beam angle. Bi-colour between 2700K – 6500K. Power output 64W. Only 25x25cm, weighing 150g without X bracket. 2m cable length (extendable to 20m). Flicker-free. Control lock – yes. DMX optional via DMX400 box. DC input: 10 ~ 17V Soft diffuser included. 1/4” Mount on back side. Optional V-mount adapter. Cineroid FL400S: What’s in the Box? FL400S LED panel light. Main control box. AC power adapter. Soft diffuser. X-bracket with spigot mount. There is quite a long lead time at the moment from the European dealer. Coming in at €659.90 (inc. VAT), it is considerably cheaper than other branded bi-colour flex lights. Also, B&H will be stocking the product next month. Will you be ordering one? Let us know your thoughts!Read more

Kinotehnik started as a start-up company that manufactured loupes for video DSLR cameras. Their product was a hit and they went on to make electronic viewfinders. With the Kinotehnik PRACTILITE 602 they’re now entering the lighting market and this smartphone controlled LED looks both powerful and affordable. The Kinotehnik Fresnel LED caught our eye, not only because the brand has a history among DSLR filmmakers, but also because it looks very interesting with its small size and powerful output. The fresnel LED is bi-color to produce daylight and tungsten light temperatures and outputs an equivalent to a 600W tungsten lamp. What is also interesting is that it can create a very parallel beam that can be flooded with an internal motor to accommodate soft boxes of different sizes. It is compatible to a number of softbox brands and there will be different speedring options. Also Tonis said they plan on making a bigger model light with 4 times the output that would still be under $1000. The lights can be controlled with a smartphone via a bluetooth connection. Several units can also be controlled in parallel. The Kinotehnik PRACTILITE 602 will be available in July and run for $690 at the Kinotehnik website.Read more
