Paul Kench, Kenro’s Managing Director, told PhotoBite: “Lights are a fundamental accessory for both the photographer and filmmaker, and as more and more photographers start to look at the potential of video or are perhaps finding themselves asked by their clients to shoot video alongside their stills, there’s an increasing need for products that are powerful and versatile enough to meet the needs of those working in both areas. The new line-up of NanGuang Mixpad lights shows just how much LED technology has progressed in recent years. Features such as brightness and colour control now enable all kinds of mixed lighting situations to be tackled easily, while having the facility to switch from hard to soft lighting demonstrates their versatility, making them a complete solution for a variety of needs.”
All three of the new NanGuang Mixpads share a line-up of notable features. Brightness is adjustable from 0-100% and colour temperature can be set [steplessly] between 5600-3200K by the easily accessible controls on the rear of each unit. All three units in the range also offer an impressive Colour Rendering Index [CRI] of 95, meaning that they will consistently represent the colour of your subject. Additionally, they can be switched between hard and soft light, thanks to a built-in diffuser that can be enabled or disabled with ease.
The new models in the Mixpad range have been produced to be as beneficial on location as they are in a studio. They can be battery operated [using Sony NP-F/FM type batteries – not included]. An optional power adapter, [priced at £23.94] is available for the NanGuang Mixpad 32 and 41 models, and comes included with the Mixpad 106.
