Introducing the DaoLite from Fotodiox! DaoLite is a bi-color LED tube light that provides 360° of bright, soft light for your filmmaking or photography, whether you're in a studio or on-location. The unique 360° arc diffusion surface spreads powerful, diffused light in all directions; this slim form factor is great for edge lighting but is especially great for use as fill light in tight spaces or specialty situations such as elevators, cars and other spaces where standard lighting equipment is too bulky. Mount DaoLite on a stand, hand it to a crew member or hold it yourself for fast, adjustable light. Use multiple units to create specialty looks in camera such as rows, squares and triangles.
The DaoLite is a complete kit that includes everything you need to mount this versatile LED light on a stand, hang in a studio, hand off to an assistant or just hold yourself. And everything packs into the included premium custom bag to throw in the trunk of your car for your next shoot. All this power and versatility is packed into a wand that is roughly 3 feet long (with battery handle) and 2.2" in diameter! They're compact enough to mount behind your subject for rim light, and they create striking rod-shaped reflections for eye catchlight or product photography.
360° of bright, soft light is created using a unique 360° arc diffusion surface and composed of ultra-bright chip LEDs with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. These LEDs have a standardized color temperature with a CRI of 96 and TLCI of 96 or greater for a more accurate color reproduction in skin tones and subtle hues. The control section of the DaoLite has an LCD screen showing real-time information and soft touch operation buttons to give you easy access to control the power, brightness and color temperature. Match the light in your location or go cooler or warmer for a more creative look or use multiple lights and color temperatures to shape your subject.
The design includes an all-aluminum frame for better heat dissipation to help ensure long bulb life. The hardened anodized aluminum also provides rugged durability for when its being handled on shoots yet remaining lightweight so that it can be held by an assistant or mounted someone easily. The light can be powered by wall power with the included AC power adapter or with the included battery handle making it great for location work. The light is heat-free and provides stable, consistent output.
The DaoLite is equipped with 720 ultra-bright dual colored LED chips with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. Flicker-free and uniformly dimmable from 10%-100% due to the PWM integrated design. Beautifully soft light - ideal for location and studio productions for both photographers and filmmakers. The light level is fully dimmable from 10%-100% throughout the 2800k to 6500k color temperature range, giving you options beyond daylight and tungsten to match lighting wherever you may be.
