The Ikan PRO LED Makeup Light Kit - Standard has some cool features, not to mention that the light itself is always cool to the touch when in operation, and with no cool down period before packing it up to put away! This economical light alone weighs a mere 0.6 pounds, with total outside dimensions of 5.25" wide by 1.25" deep, by 3.25" high. Film, Print, TV and Video productions in the industry have transitioned to LED lighting, especially for ultra high resolution video/TV cameras, so makeup artists now have the capability to be on par with this lighting technology. They can count on the fact that they can see and match true to color with their makeup products.
This Ikan light kit has unparalleled accuracy and control in delivering spot on accuracy in full spectrum white light needs for precise makeup application. It has been instantly embraced by makeup artists because of its small size, weight, portability, ease and safety in use. Side by side technical comparisons were done with this light and other popular LED makeup industry lights being marketed to makeup artists. Those other models have a fixed 5600K output which makes the light spill a colder (bluish tinted) daylight, which can obscure true tonal color to the eye, especially when dimmed.
Ikan delivers customized daylight needs with the twist of a dial, from 3200k through the full spectrum white light range (4800-5200K which is ideal for makeup) and all the way up to 5600K! You can incrementally custom dial the light temperature you want and set it there. It can't be any easier than that, and you can also dim the light intensity (strength) without affecting the light temperature too!
The kit features the following:
• Bright wide angle beam pattern, which gives a great broad throw light spill.
• Battery life indicator.
• 144 bulb dual color LED with custom adjustable Kelvin temperature dial in incremental steps from 3200K to 5600K.
• Intensity dimmer dial.
• Removable diffusion gel filter for light softening capability.
• Convenient horizontal / vertical interlock options should you wish to stack additional lights together.
The kit also contains 1 Sony “L” Series DV Battery, along with a battery charger and a 12V Car Accessory Adapter (Cigarette Lighter). It also has an A/C adaptor plug in, so you can use the light as battery operated on remote locations or plugged in where it’s convenient. Included is an ultra-heavy duty shoe mount should you wish to mount the light on a light stand or on top of a video camera. Best of all, the light and accessories above come to you completely contained and protected in a soft sided rugged carrying case! A Mini Tripod, PPS-0397, and Compact Light Stand, PPS-0398, for this light are available and sold separately.
Makeup begins with the right light, and variable daylight/full spectrum lighting is simply the most important tool in your kit for applying makeup, whether you are a makeup artist hired to do the job or on-camera talent applying your own makeup. Video Bloggers will find this light a perfect dual duty 2-in one solution for their own camera ready makeup needs AND lighting for their video recording! Total weight of all components included in carrying case: 2 lbs.
NOTE: This light kit is also dual voltage rated, so it is perfect to travel with and use in other countries! All you would need to have with you is an international outlet adaptor plug (not sold with this kit) that is configured for the country you are using it in. Simply plug it into the outlet adaptor and then plug that into the wall socket, and you are ready to use it!
