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.
“With 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,” said Falk Wulms, managing director of Multiblitz. “It creates a very soft light and guarantees a flattering color rendition at a slightly warmer color temperature. It’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.”
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 studio kit (including softbox, stand and carrying case) for $1049. Visit the Multiblitz USA web site for more information.
