Step 1: Mounting

Specifically intended to mimic large, soft overhead light sources, these lights are simple to hang or stick thanks to hanging rings and hook-and-loop fasteners. Because these lights are designed to be foldable and flexible, it also can bend around surfaces. To meet your needs, you’re able to connect several lights to create a custom lighting configuration, which offers excellent convenience.

Otherwise, the F series is released with the best mounting bracket, which is called an X-bracket. It allows you to mount the LED Mat to C-stands, light stands, or other fixtures. When the light source is in use, the bracket also enables you to rotate the light between horizontal and vertical when it is supported by a stand. In this case, you can choose any option that works best for you.

The c-stand is rock solid and impressively capable. I've used it on location a few times now and whilst heavy it supports a good load. I recommend purchasing the optional wheels which make it very easy to position and refine positioning with heavy lights and ballast.


Step 2: Power Connection and Control 

These lights’ power is supplied by a V-Mount on the side of the power supply (sold separately). It is specially designed for using V-mount batteries with a voltage of 14.8V or 26V. In practice, while these lights have two V-lock battery plates, you’re able to use multiple batteries or a single battery. In this case, a single battery will only provide 40% of the light's output, and two batteries will provide 80% of the light's output. Therefore, you're able to use it for around 4 hours without the main power. This controller/power supply’s corresponding input has been colour-coded which is straightforward to use and intuitive. 

Godox KNOWLED F Power Controller

Besides, the Godox KNOWLED F series LED Panels can be controlled through a DMX or TimoLink system. You can fully control the light from a distance by using the Godox App. It not only allows you to switch between tungsten and daylight colour temperatures, adjusting brightness, but also sets up 6 channels and 16 groups. It is especially useful if you have one or more of these lights hanging from the ceiling.

Step 4: Light Modifications 

Because of its design, these LED Mats appear as several small light sources when placed close to the subject. Thus, the subject is covered in numerous hard-edged shadows. To reduce this, you can combine each panel with the softbox. It helps to create a slightly soften source. While utilising these LED Mats with a softbox and grid (available in the box). You can exert some control over the spill and the direction of the light that is emitting.
