Multiblitz, the German lighting manufacturer, has introduced its first LED light to the North American market. The Multiblitz V6 is a multi-voltage continuous lamp that puts out 6000lm and accepts P-type light modifiers including softboxes and beauty dishes.
â€œWith the ongoing fusion of photography and videography we decided it was time for an extremely lightweight and portable LED product that utilizes a variety of light modifiers. The V6 weighs just 3 lbs, at least one pound less than comparable products,â€ said Falk Wulms, managing director of Multiblitz. â€œIt creates a very soft light and guarantees a flattering color rendition at a slightly warmer color temperature. Itâ€™s a really easy to use light, straightforward plugand-play. The twist is that you can use all Multiblitz P-type light modifiers on the V6.â€
You can control the brightness of the V6 LED over 2.5 stops in 1/2-stop increments. The colour temperature is 4000K and there is a “silencer fan” built-in to keep the unit cool while staying quiet enough for use in video production.
The Multiblitz V6 is available on its own for $699 or as part of a studioÂ kit (including softbox, stand and carrying case) for $1049. Visit the Multiblitz USA web site for more information.
