F&V manufacturers some great led lights and they are among the few companies that I know actually manufacture their stuff themselves and they have their own US and EU store.Read more

Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com Here’s another new LED light from a company that has some great products and evolves every year. I have tested these and appreciate the quality vs price ratio here. It’s just right. I reported about their medium sized Z180 LED two weeks ago. Here are their small combinable on camera lights. They just received their first batch of these lights in the European store (see below): American F&V store: K160 – $39 K320 – $59 K480 – $89 European F&V store: LINKRead more

We thank our sponsor B&H who has made cinema5D’s news coverage of NAB 2012 possible. Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com You’ve seen lights from F&V before. Dedotec presented their 1×1 panel series last year. F&V’s products have been rebranded numerous times, but they now established their own brand name and online shop. The Z180 LED series is an in-between size to the smaller on-camera style LED’s and the larger 1×1 panels. Light output and quality is quite good. They have increased the CRI value over last year’s generation of lights and added some more features as you can see in the video. The Z180S (bi-color version) is $390. It has 1380lx at 1 meter. Correct me if I’m wrong: A conventional 1×1 panel seems to have 1400-1700lx at 1.2 meters. You can soon get these at B&H and also at the F&V store in Germany. Here’s the link to F&V USA:Read more
