Godox Review: What is the AT200Bi Bi-Colour LED Air Tube Light?

Are you looking for portable and lightweight softlight solutions for outdoor video recording? Are you seeking an alternative to traditional softboxes? The recently introduced Godox AT200Bi Bi-Colour LED Air Tube light is the perfect solution. Keep reading to find out why!

What is the AT200Bi? 

A common issue with many LED lights is that they produce harsh and direct light. So, softboxes have been introduced as a remedy to scatter and soften the light. However, traditional softboxes can be expensive and lack portability. To solve this issue, the appearance of the AirTube light is a unique solution for those who demand soft lighting with a super lightweight and compact design for on-the-go outdoor video recording.

Take the AT200Bi Air Tube light, for example, it is the perfect combination of an LED mat with an inflatable softbox. It is not only specially designed to increase the beam spread produced by the mat light but also to create a very soft, flattering source. Moreover, this distinctive design allows for quick inflation when in use and convenient deflation for storage. It makes the AT200Bi Air Tube Light stand out as a practical and effective tool for enhancing the overall quality of your lighting setup. Let's dive into it. 

Compact and Lightweight Design 

As mentioned above, the AT200Bi has a compact design with a weight of 2.15kg and dimensions of 280mm*267mm*1226mm. The AT200Bi AirTube light features ultra-bounce materials, creating soft and cylindrical lighting sources. In the light body, it is equipped with a pump for inflating the tube and a valve with a bleeder, ensuring the air won’t whistle while you’re inflating the AT200Bi. This feature enhances the overall user experience, avoiding any distracting whistling during setup. Additionally, the softbox can be removed from the LED mat, ensuring hassle-free maintenance. In case of softbox damage, it can be repaired or replaced independently, minimising expenses and prolonging the lifespan of the lighting.

This versatility feature makes it adaptable to a range of shooting scenarios, whether you choose to handle, suspend, or stand-mount it. It empowers you to achieve your desired lighting result effectively, offering flexibility and ease of use for both amateur and professional videographers.

As its name implies, the Godox AT200Bi LED Air Tube Light offers a bi-colour temperature range from 2700K to 8500K. This flexibility allows you to adapt the lighting to different scenarios, no matter whether you want to capture the warmth of a sunset or the cool tones of moonlight. Plus, with a Colour Rendering Index rating (CRI) of over 96, the AT200 ensures accurate and vibrant colour reproduction. Its high CRI allows the light source to faithfully represent the colour of the subjects being illuminated, contributing to the overall quality of the visuals.

Outdoor Shooting and Easy Transport 

The Godox AT200Bi is not only designed for studio setup but also for on-the-go shootings. Its 210W maximum power ensures ample brightness to illuminate outdoor scenes effectively. Whether you’re capturing dynamic landscapes, conducting on-location interviews, or shooting action-packed scenes, the AT200Bi ensures professional-grade results in various outdoor scenarios. 

Additionally, it takes the next step in dealing with unpredictable weather conditions with its impressive water resistance at IP65, certifying that it is protected against dust but can also withstand water jets, making it a reliable companion in the rain. You can now focus on capturing the perfect shot without worrying about the impact of the weather on your light tube.

Even more, when shooting outdoors, it can be a challenge to access a reliable power source. The AT200Bi addresses this concern by featuring compatibility with V-mount batteries which are sold separately from the main unit. This ensures uninterrupted operation and provides flexibility in choosing shooting locations, making the AT200Bi LED Tube Light an ideal choice for outdoor shoots where mobility is important.

Last but not least, its inflatable airtight design not only ensures the weight is minimal and the illumination is incredibly soft, but also enhances mobility, seamlessly adapting to various environments and scenes and unlocking limitless creative possibilities. It allows photographers and videographers to carry and set up their lighting equipment with ease. 

Accessories and Creativity 

Among its incredible features, the Godox AT200Bi Bi-Colour LED Light also expands a wide range of accessories for enabling various lighting results, including skirts and grids. If you’re working in a narrow space or aiming to restrict light spills, skirts are a perfect option because of its ability to block and shape the light. Conversely, grids are commonly used to create a spotlight effect or to control the spill of light in specific directions. This is particularly valuable in portrait photography, interviews, or any scenario where you want to isolate specific areas with precision.

These choices not only broaden your creativity but also transform your concepts into realities. You can also control these effects by utilising multiple control options: DMX512, app control, wireless remote and CRMX control to improve on-set efficiency. Likewise, this ensures seamless integration into various production setups, offering adaptability to different creative workflows and environments.
