Look at this lamp. It’s amazing. The MDF construction is brilliant and the paint job is superb – then there’s the electronics: approximately 200 LEDs powered by a 56 Wh Sony battery (hidden in the porthole hinge!) controlled via a dimmer switch disguised as a decorative rivet (!), with fan and heatsink cooling, and then some. This thing…I’m salivating at the pictures alone.
Translated from German-Swiss via Google Translate:
A porthole should be freely placeable and give off a dim light. Milled and painted MDF.
Color temperature stable 5600 ° K
From integrated Sony BP-U60 battery
With automatic shutdown electronics as deep discharge protection of the battery
Dimming from 0% – 100%
Absolutely flicker-free for filming
Active cooling with miniature fan (speed is based on dimming level)
On / off switch and dimmer laminated with decorative rivets
