Broncolor have announce the LED F160, an AC powered LED light with Broncolor modifier mount, aimed at both video and still photography applications.
The 160 watt LED providing approx 12000 Lumens, with bi-color temperature control from 2800K to 6800K, and even including a Green / Magenta color tint adjustment.
Broncolor have stopped short of enabling any form of LED flash mode (that illusive title still remains up for grabs), though the LED F160 are a continuous light aimed at photographers wanting to do stills and / or video, using the same existing range of Broncolor light shaping modifiers.
With the F160’s diffusion dome designed to provide the same light characteristics as Broncolor flash tubes, the LED light can be used with modifiers in the same way as regular flashes.
A manual focusing adjustment is also provided, so unlike LED panels for example, the F160’s point light source can be focused into a narrow beam with more intensity, or used as a wide flood light etc, depending on the focus setting and reflector or modifiers used.
With bi-color temperature control from 2800K to 6800K (in 50K Increments), the F160 can be easily adjusted to blend in with the lighting environment without the need for color correction gels.
For added convenience, light output also remains constant across the color range.
Again to match the light quality of Broncolor flashes, the LED F160 also feature high CRI values above 97, and even 98.6 at 5500K.
The LED F160 feature built-in WiFi, so remote control will be available via the Broncolor APP.
And DMX and RDM control is also available via an optional adapter.
The LED F160 are AC powered only at this stage, as there is currently no mention of a DC power pack option.
