ZHIYUN, the world’s leading gimbal brand for filmmakers with cameras and smartphones, has launched its first portable lighting accessory, the powerful FIVERAY FR100C. I have been testing this guy out a few days and with having checked out many other lights for my home set ups this changes the game, I have have those circular lights you may see the only fans crew using lol. plus other LED strips and so on, they all suffer from the same thing though which is brightness and the ability to change colour and other settings you tend to see with lighting tools.
In the video below you will see what I mean by how bright this new kit is and the difference between them, the light intensity and how to use the FIVERAY FR100C. Not only that this portable with no wires required, you can charge whilst in use or use it on the go, it is well built too and robust but one thing is for sure you do not look straight into this when it is on top notch settings unlike other lights this will blind you it is that powerful and that is exactly what one needs, not only is this an ideal tool for creators but this can be used at home too if the power goes or you can use it in your garden at night if you have no lights, you can also have it set a piece in a corner and set the mood to with the colour options.
Lighting is an essential part of filmmaking process, and ZHIYUN intends to provide users with a comprehensive photography and filmmaking product range, encompassing everything a scene needs, from imaging, lighting to audio. The FR100C is the result of ZHIYUN’s own R&D efforts and technologies, resulting in a portable LED light stick that’s five times brighter than alternatives.
Powerful, Portable & Convenient
The FR100C is a powerful, portable LED light stick that’s slimmer and weighs less than competitor alternatives, and yet still achieves 5X more luminosity. The FR100C can produce up to 21195 lux (at 0.3m) and provides 100 dimming steps to precisely meet the requirements of the scene. An ergonomic control wheel and inbuilt status display is easy to see, and convenient for one-handed control. The standard ¼ mounting screw hole in the base allows the FR100C to be mounted on a gimbal, tripod, stand or other equipment as required for each scene.
Full Range Color/Temperature Adjustment
Supporting a full temperature range from 2700K-6300K, plus RGB hue, saturation and brightness using the HIS full color mode allows more freedom to fit the lighting to any scene, whether it’s a natural environment or when something more creative is required.
Cool Operation & Fast Charging Support
Built in fans ensure effective cooling, ensuring it can be used even in high ambient temperatures. A large 6-cell internal battery provides hours of illumination, while extremely fast 120W PD charging via USB-C ensures the FR100C can be back in use exceptionally quickly, minimizing downtime.
The ZHIYUN FIVERAY FR100C is available in white and black color options for USD$199, or with a combo that includes a 120W power adapter for USD$249.
