A small LED panel for the accessory shoe,
emitting top-quality full-spectrum light
The light is equipped with two sets of diodes: warm 3200 K and cold 5600 K.
A1 features innovative white LEDs called NATURAL LIGHT, based on multi chip technique and ensuring an unsurpassed spectrum of light. CRI Ra of the emitted light is up to 98, and TLCI =99-100. R9, which is usually the lowest CRI factor of LED lights, exceeds 96.
The device allows to adjust brightness as well as colour temperature over the entire 3200–5600 K range.
The light features state-of-the-art integrated circuits whose energy efficiency exceeds 95%. This ensures low energy consumption during battery operation.
A highly robust on-camera LED device for reporting work, emitting light of unsurpassed quality and of a spectrum close to that of natural light, which results in capturing vivid, lifelike colours. Precise microprocessor-controlled adjustment of brightness and colour temperature allows to adapt the tone for the given lighting. A wide assortment of camera battery seats enables to use a single type of battery for both the camera and the light, and a high energy efficiency ensures long-lasting operation without the need to change the battery. An integrated visual low-battery state indicator is also provided.
The housing is a body made from blacked anodised aluminium, acting also as a radiator transferring the heat away from diodes. In the back there is a pro switch as well as excellent and dependable cermet potentiometers for brightness and colour temperature adjustment. Both the switch and the potentiometers are professional components supplied by leading Japanese and European manufacturers, made to IP67 and – as such – resistant to water, humidity or dust ingress. All these features make A1 suitable for use in such harsh conditions as high humidity, very low temperature or dusty environment. An Akurat 10mm mounting adapter makes possible to choose between 10 mm – photo shoe or 10mm- 1/4 thread camera mounting adapters, proper to used camera ( mounting adapters are sold separately ). There are many different elements of Akurat 10mm system available. A magnetically fixed barndoors with the diffuser are available too.
The unique functionality of A1 comes from the ability to power the device with any voltage from 6 up to 16 V. That allows to use both the typical D-Tap sockets found in professional film cameras (14.4 V) and batteries commonly used for powering cameras (7.4 V), gel batteries (6 and 12 V), electrical systems of cars and motorcycles, mains power supplies etc. A wide assortment of camera battery adapters allows to use a single type of battery for both the camera and the light.
In the Accessories tab you will find suitable cables and adapters for different supply options.
