The Sony HVL-LBPC LED Battery Video Light is a high-brightness bicolour on-camera light designed to provide widespread for wide-angle shooting. It provides an even intensity across the entire spread. It offers up to an 1800 lux brightness at 1 m with low power consumption. You can further increase the brightness to 2100 lux at 1 m by setting the Booster switch to "on", but this will be at higher power consumption. Colour temperature is adjustable between 3200 and 5600K via a dial on the side.
The light features built-in barndoors, a flip-down diffuser, and a condenser lens. It has an L-series battery plate and includes a BP-series battery plate adapter. Batteries are sold separately. An NP-F970 L-series battery provides approximately three hours of runtime. The runtime can be prolonged in Standby mode, which has a power consumption of only 0.1W or less.
This light features the proprietary Sony Multi-Interface shoe. When it's mounted directly on Multi-Interface shoe mounts available on cameras such as the Sony NXCAM and XDCAM camcorders, it can be set up to power on/off when the camera is powered on/off or when recording is set to start/stop. Either option can be assigned in the camera settings. A standard shoe mount adapter is also included for attaching the light to standard camera shoe mounts. A mini desktop stand is also supplied for off-camera use.
Note: Battery is not included. Supports L Series or BP-U via the included plate.
