SmartCluster Vario 8 LED Camera Light

Code no: 3290

Flat smartphone sized bi-color camera light, for photo, video, social media, etc. With adjustable color temperature 3200 - 6500 Kelvin, five lighting effects and built-in lithium-ion battery for mobile, mains-independent use. Comes with removable mounting foot, diffusor screen, grid attachment, USB charging cable and protective bag.

Particularly suitable for portrait, interview, social media, vlogging, video conference, webinars, table top, macro shots and for the creative arrangement of photo and video shots in the studio, home office or on location.

104 SMD LEDs provide approx. 300 lux of illumination at 1 m (3.3 ft.) and 110° angle of radiation (half-value angle). The brightness can be adjusted in 5 % increments from 10 to 100 %, the color temperature is adjustable in 100-Kelvin steps from 3200 Kelvin (artificial light / warm white) via 5600 Kelvin (daylight / neutral white) to 6500 Kelvin (daylight / cold white). High color rendering index: CRI ≥ 96. Flicker-free light, free from infrared and UV parts.

For creative arrangements of video recordings the light offers five hard-coded lighting effects (fireworks, explosions, candle-light/fire, TV simulation and popping-up flashbulbs) with changing brightness, flashing frequency and color temperature. This can be used to simulate a running TV set or popping-up flashbulbs, for example.

The illuminated info screen shows brightness, color temperature, lighting effect and charge status of the lithium-ion battery. Charging and operating the light can be done by connecting the supplied USB cable to a suitable USB charging adapter, a live USB port or a power bank.

An electronically stabilized light output keeps the set brightness constant when supply voltage goes down. If the voltage is too low, the light switches to an energy-saving mode (brightness 10 %) and then automatically switches off after a few minutes to prevent deep discharge and battery defects. 

The light has a solid light metal housing, equipped with 1/4" tripod thread at each narrow side and can be mounted to a suitable tripod, stand, ball head, hinged bracket etc. or with the included mounting foot to the camera’s accessory shoe. The tripod threads are also suitable for attaching the light to a smartphone using threading adapter 6014 and smartphone mount 6015.

A slip-on diffusor screen ensures particularly soft light and a grid attachment (also included) can reduce the angle of radiation to 70°.
