Lishuai 98A PRO Continuous LED Video Light Panel KIT Battery, Charger, DC Plug
Please refer to product description.
*This is a customised version of the popular Lishuai/Fotodiox 98A LED for Gorilla Film Gear. It includes a high CRI rating of 94 and an Australia certified AC DC adapter for the light and battery charger. The CRI of the standard product provided by others sellers is around 85 and the AC DC adapter is not Australia compliant.
The 98A LED from manufacturer Lishuai (Fotodiox) is a popular professional LED light. It outputs continuous flicker-free light at a 5600K daylight colour temperature with high colour accuracy and includes diffusion and tungsten (3200K) filters. 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. It includes a battery level indicator and a metal ball-head head mount with a hot shoe compatible base for mounting on-camera or a light standard. While these features are available with other lights, there are numerous qualities that make the LED98A 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 knob for light intensity adjustment is 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: a 2200mah NP-F550 7.4V 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 98A'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.
