question

What is the wattage power at full power on individual unit?
Asked by: Edwin A.
Ikan rates these units in LUX rather than watts. At 100% power and 5600 K, the light puts out 2186 LUX at 3 feet from the subject.

question

I'm looking to replace my old 1000 watt tungsten lights. I use them to produce videos for doctors , physical therapists..typically a physical exam video with 2 or 3 people in an area probably 10ft x 10 ftWould these lights be comparable for this application?..
Asked by: Mike
Mike,Yes these are great lights for locations and espically locations that may have limited space and or power. They do a great job and have a good quality of light and the fact you can easliy balance 3200k to 5600k is fantastic. they will not give you the same amount of light output as your current 1k fixtures but get the job done in most shooting situations. I have used them a bunch for on location interviews and Doc style shooting.Shaun

When these lights are plugged into power, will they automatically turn back on? I'm looking for lights that when I turn on the switch they are plugged into, they will AUTOMATICALLY TURN ON without having to press a button on the light fixtures themselves. Also, does the fixture maintain it's last settings? Thank you!
Asked by: Christopher
Yes they can be used with a inline switch.

question

what is the actual wattage of one of these lights?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you want to know how much power they CONSUME, it's 15W per fixture. If you want to know how much LIGHT OUTPUT they generate, it's 1776 lux at 3 feet (3200 K), and 1227 lux at 3 feet (5600 K). Wattage does not measure light output, but rather power consumption.

question

I bought these but can't get the adapters to work on stands so they can be angled. The gold screw in top of adapter is 3/8 and doesn't fit in bottom of led panels
Asked by: Bret
These should include a ball mount for adjustments like this.

question

Does anyone have any experience using these lights in the studio or on location for STILL photography...not video? If so, can you tell me your opinion re light intensity and fall-off as the lights move farther from the subject. I admit that I can't really picture a lux or a footcandle so if you have examples of, say, 10 feet from your subject you're shooting at f5.6 at a shutter speed of x in a location with minimal ambient light? Thank you:)
Asked by: Sayre
I would like to answer the question but we need a bit more information. The IB508-v2 at 10 feet is 197Lux/18FC. We get a 6.3 EV when we convert from 197LUX. For more in depth answer, stop by our website and leave a message about this, I can connect you directly with our product manager over lights, who will be able to provide you with many more details and information! Hope to hear from you soon!
