LED lit close-up
4 months ago
A while ago we had a discussion about lighting of close ups of figurines.
The idea of using LED video-lights came up but no recommendation for a good one.
I had for a while also looked for small LED-lights but was either unsure about the quality or the price was just too high.
Well, I discovered a small light at our local photo-store and tried it out.
It has a clip-on clear diffuser and an orange diffuser, hold by magnets. And a very smooth dimmer knob, which really allows finetuning the light output. Tripod threads on three sides and a connector for hotshoe and again tripod mount. Runs on 4 AAA batteries.
I liked the light output and the feel of quality.
Went home to check it on the web. It’s new, very little info and no reviews yet.
I bought it yesterday and really like it. It will get a lot of use to “pimp” the available light.
It’s a Metz mecalight LED 320
Lit with a mixture of dim daylight and the LED-light.
