The IDX X10-Lite Hi-Performance LED On-Camera Light mounts to a standard accessory shoe on your camera, and provides a powerful beam that can be dimmed from 100 to 0% without affecting the beam quality. The LEDs in the unit are rated to last up to 50,000 hours, and the unit powers from available IDX SSL-JVC50 type batteries (not included). You can also power the unit from a 6 to 17 volt DC source using the included D-Tap connector.
A sealed, scratch resistant lens protects the LEDs, and they deliver 1450 lux at 1m, with a 90° beam spread. This allows you to light a relatively large area from an on-camera light. For a tighter beam, you can flip up the bottom barndoor, which will adjust the beam spread to 45°, giving you more control, and less spill. The LEDs produce light with a color temperature of 4500K, which is roughly halfway between daylight and tungsten values. The barndoors incorporate a color correction filter that you can fold in front of the light to convert the color temperature from 4500K to 3200K.
The X10-Lite is an on-camera light that features dimming from 100 to 0%, without affecting the quality of the beam.
The standard beam angle is 90°, however, by flipping up the bottom barndoor in front of the light, you convert the beam angle to 45° for a more spotty beam.
The light has a color temperature of 4500K, which puts it approximately halfway between daylight and tungsten. Using this light with daylight (5600K) balanced units will result in the light causing a slight warming on the subjects you illuminate it with, when the camera is set to daylight balanced.
The barndoors feature a color correction filter, that you can flip down to cover the LEDs, and this will convert the lights output from 4500K to 3200K, so you can mix it with traditional tungsten lighting with color temperature issues.
