The Fotodiox LED 508A is a large panel Dimmable Photo/Video Light that ships with a full kit and carrying case. The Fotodiox Pro LED-508A is a powerful, lightweight light that uses 508 ultra bright 5600k LEDs. The daylight balanced LEDs offer full spectrum soft light for both studio photo and studio video production. The rear battery mounts allow for the option to do location shooting anywhere, even if there is no power available since this LED light accepts standard Sony batteries.
It can be powered by one or both batteries. Sony batteries are much cheaper than the V Mount batteries that other LED lights require. The rear dimmer dial allows the light to be adjusted as needed and the removable diffusion panel allows the light to be diffused as needed for most shooting scenarios. This option also allows a number of additional gels and/or diffusion cloths to be added to help control and create the perfect lighting for your situation.
In the video above, I show how the 508A can be used in broad daylight outside as a nice fill light. We then bring the light into the studio and show the light spread compared to the popular LED 312. Since this is the Dual Color LED 312, at full brightness 5600K, only half of the LEDs are powered. To have a fair comparison, we only powered the 508A at 50%. The Fotodiox 508A also comes in a Dual Color option, the LED 508AS. This light has both 5600K and 3200K LEDs. At full brightness for each temperature, only half of the LEDs are used.508, fill light, Fotodiox, Fotodiox Pro LED - 508A Professional 508 LED Dimmable Photo/Video Light Kit, LED 508, LED 508A, LED 508AS, LED light, lighting, oliviatech, outdoor lighting
