Flat panel LED lighting has become the ‘standard’ in most photographers’ studio and portable set-ups, due to their cool, silent operation, excellent soft light pattern and continuous output. This makes them ideally suited to portrait and commercial photography, as well as video capture.
NanGuang’s lighting range covers most types of LED lighting, from Fresnel, to ring light, to flat panel, and from small camera-mounted lighting devices to large studio lighting.
The first of the new lights is the NanGuang CNT2240C LED ‘bi-colour’ studio light. The largest panel light in the range, this 200W slimline unit utilises high-efficiency SMT LEDs to give a soft, gentle, diffused light ideal for stills or video.
It features stepless dimmer controls for both brightness and colour temperature; the latter variable between 3200 and 5600K (CRI 95, illumination 13661 LM). It is manufactured in top-quality thermoplastic polymer ABS and is very robust.
The average life expectancy of the 2240 LEDs is 50,000 hours. Dimensions: 700 x 498 x 71mm.
Included in the kit is the light head, light stand clamp, diffuser cloth and 240V AC power adapter. SRP is £658.20 including VAT.
The second of the new lights is the NanGuang Professional Photo / Video CN900DSP LED Portable Lighting Head Kit. It is ideal for live video or general commercial photography. The stepless dimming feature can be controlled manually on the unit or via DMX.
The kit includes the head, barn doors, orange filter, diffuser, extra soft diffuser, power adapter, and a fitted carry case (total weight approximately 5kg). To add to its flexibility in the field, it is powered by 240V AC mains adapter (included), Sony V-lock battery, Panasonic 16.8V, or Anton mount battery (no batteries included).
Power output is 54W via 900 LEDs and illumination is 7680 Lux (1m). Colour temperature is 3200K (using included orange filter) / 5600K (no filter). Dimensions: 417 x 393 x 80mm. SRP is £639.96 including VAT.
Says Paul Kench, Kenro's managing director: "These two new additions to our NanGuang Lighting range are aimed at the professional or serious enthusiast that demands great build quality, professional features and reliability.
''Commercial use of any photo or video equipment can take its toll after a prolonged period of time, so you need to be confident that the equipment can stand up to this level of use in both the studio and on the road.
''Both lights are priced very competitively against like-for-like models of the other big-name brands, making them an attractive stock item for specialist photo / video retailers.''
All quoted prices are SRP guide, including VAT.
