Lishuai 144AS Professional LED Video Light Panel Kit for DSLR
*This is a customised version of the popular Lishuai/Fotodiox 144AS LED for Gorilla Film Gear. It includes a high CRI rating of 92+ and an Australia certified AC DC adapter for the light and battery charger. The CRI of the standard product offered by other sellers is around 85 and the AC DC adapter is not Australia compliant.
The 144AS LED is a professional LED light that outputs continuous flicker-free light at a fully variable colour temperature (3200K-5600K) with high colour accuracy. It is fully dimmable from 10-100% and has a beam angle of 60 degrees which provides even illumination suitable for most basic lighting applications. The 144AS includes a battery level indicator, a metal ball-head head mount for mounting on-camera or a light stand, and a diffusion filter. While these features are available with other lights, there are numerous qualities that make the LED144AS a truly professional tool compared to its competition.
Firstly, the construction and components are of a superior quality: the hard plastic frame can endure regular use, the buttons, locks and connections are strong and tight, and the knobs for light intensity and colour temperature adjustment are more tactile, allowing for finer control. Secondly, the unit can be powered by Sony L (NP-F) series batteries and by direct wall power (AC) using its DC input, AC power a feature which many smaller lights do not offer. Thirdly, the product comes packaged with everything that you need to use it: an NP-F550 battery, a battery charger and an Australia compliant AC DC power adapter for use with the light and with the battery charger.
There are also little touches that make this light a superior product to use. The magnetic 'snap-on' filters are a highlight. Other lights tend to have finicky click-on or slide-in filters; click-on filters can be difficult to remove and the connections to the light can break ever time, while slide-in filters are often similarly difficult, either too tight to slide in easily or so lose the filters slip out of the slot. The 144AS's magnetic panels grip the light instantly and come off just as fast, a real advantage for someone having to swap filters regularly. The ball mount is also a higher quality connection.
The only limitation of the 144AS is that it does not include the colour temperature indicator of its siblings, the 170DS and 312DS. While these lights have an LED display that dynamically shows the colour temperature and light intensity at any dial position, the 144AS does not. The 3200K and 5600K settings are easily achieved by simply turning the dial to either end but, if you wish to use a colour temperature somewhere in between, you will need to approximate the dial position.
