Lishuai 170DS Professional LED Video Light Panel Kit for DSLR
*This is a customised version of the popular Lishuai/Fotodiox 170DS 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 170DS 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 170DS includes 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 LED170DS a truly professional LED light.
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.
Distinguishing itself even further from its competition, the 170DS includes an LED display that indicates the current colour temperature and light intensity settings, as well as the current battery power. This means you can fine tune your settings without any guesswork. The 170DS also includes a detachable 8-leaf barndoor set that controls the light spill that you get from most LED light panels. While barndoors on other LED panels are often useless, doing nothing to limit the spill of the light, those on the 170DS are custom designed to wrap around the light and limit the width of the beam, creating a more clear distinction between light and shadow.
There are also little touches that make this light a superior product to use. The lock-in slidable filters are a highlight. Other lights tend to have finicky slide-in filters which are either too tight to slide in easily or so lose the filters slip out of the slot. The 170DS has a lock mechanism that keeps the filters in place once inserted. The ball mount is also a higher quality connection.
