This kit enables you to produce high-quality photos or videos for use on websites, or for use on social media platforms to show off your own, or your client’s culinary skills, whilst on a shoe-string budget. This kit consists of a Daylite60D daylight-balanced LED COB light with a CRI of 95+, with a large 130cm Parabolic umbrella with removable diffusion, ideal for replicating natural window lighting at any time of the day, regardless of whether it is in the daytime, or in the middle of the night.
Brightness: Its 60W COB LED chip, has an absolute brightness of 5,400 lumens, which is equivalent to a traditional 600W tungsten light.
Colour Temperature: Daylight-Balanced to 5600K, with a CRI of ≥95, for impeccable colour reproduction.
Flicker-Free: can shoot at virtually any framerate, or any shutter angle without fear of introducing flicker.
User-Friendly Interface: features a single dimmer dial that enables you to control the brightness of the unit between 100-10% brightness.
Bowens S-Type Bayonet Mount: enables it to be used with a wide range of lighting modifiers, including Softboxes, reflectors, snoots, Beauty Dishes and Fresnel lenses etc.
Built-in Cooling Fan and Heat Sink: this allows for Heat dispersion and prevents the unit from overheating.
Power Supply: The DAYLiTE60D is mains-powered and great for use.
Parabolic Shape: This umbrella, features a deep, parabolic design, which focuses the light more efficiently, enabling the light to travel further than it can with traditional umbrellas.
Soft, Diffused Lighting: Thanks to its large size and white interior, this umbrella produces super-soft, diffused lighting, ideal for general fill, or for more natural-looking lighting.
Durable Fibreglass Frame: The 59" Translucent White Umbrella’s frame is made from 16 fibreglass, which makes this umbrella lightweight yet durable. Since the fibreglass frame is flexible, it is less susceptible to getting bent out of shape.
Detachable Diffuser: The umbrella comes with a removable diffuser, for lighting that is softer and more even. It is also great for reducing any unwanted specular highlights.
Five Looks with one reflector: The 5-in-1 reflector comes with covers that simply go over the reflector to give more options, these come in black, gold, silver, white and translucent white. Each of which has different effects, to help modify your lighting how you see fit:
BLACK - Absorbs light to prevent any stray bounced light from falling onto the subject. Perfect for increasing contrast when shooting dramatic black and white portraits.
GOLD - Golden coating for fine, warm light characteristic with a light colour like the setting sun.
SILVER - Increases specular highlights and pro. Silver is great for accentuating detail and gives off the brightest reflection.
TRANSLUCENT - Can be used either as a reflector to bounce light back at your subject or can be used as a diffuser to soften the effects of harsh light. Ideal for when you are shooting out in the midday sun.
WHITE - Produces subtle, more natural diffused light. Ideal for when you need to keep the colour temperature of the reflected light consistent with that of your ambient/main light.
3 Tier Extension: making it collapsible to a height of 75cm and fully extend to 240cm.
Air Cushioned Dampening System: this helps to prevent any sudden drops to minimise the risk of damage to your equipment or causing injury to yourself.
Thick Sturdy Central column: can be lowered down to be used as a fourth leg, offering extra stability.
Detachable Spigot: Comes with the most popular universal 1/4" and 3/8” thread which makes it easy to use with other units up to 5kg.
Regular Light Stand and Boom Stand in One: The 2in1 Boom stand features a special hinged joint, which allows the top two sections of the stand to come out from the main central column and be converted into a boom stand. This enables you to position your lights from above your subject, without the central column of the stand getting in the way. Perfect for Butterfly or clamshell lighting. When the boom is not required, simply insert the boom back into the central column to use it as a regular light stand.
4-Sectioned Telescopic Design: 2in1 Boom stand features a three-tiered, three-sectioned design, which enables it to have a maximum height of 400cm (Approx. 13’) when used as a regular stand, and a minimum height of 120cm (Approx. 47”).
Wide Footprint Diameter: The 2in1 Boom stand has a footprint diameter of 120cm, giving it a good amount of stability, great for use with studio lighting, and with medium-sized modifiers.
Max. Load Capacity: The stand has a maximum load capacity of approximately 5kg, making it more than capable of holding medium-sized to large studio lights with large modifiers.
Aluminium Construction: The 2in1 Boom stand is made from aluminium, making it strong, yet lightweight. Perfect for photographers or cinematographers who are always on the move.
Sandbag: this stand comes with a sandbag, which can be clipped to the boom section of the stand, to counterbalance the weight on the opposite side, and to prevent the stand from tipping over. When you are not using the stand as a boom, you can also add it to the base of the stand, for added stability.
Simple Attachment: Designed to attach to any studio stand, clamp or arm with a 5/8" (16mm) fitting.
Tightening Mechanism: This camera platform bracket has a 1/4"-20 screw with a large knob to secure a camera in place.
