ikan PL60 overview

  • 1Description

The 6" diameter Piatto PL60 LED Accent Light from ikan is a daylight-balanced beauty or wash light that employs edge light technology for extra soft output. Three-hundred tiny LEDs point inward towards the light's frame where prisms reroute it through diffusion material that remains completely free of LED hot spots.

The PL60's slim 1/2" profile, 1 lb weight and aluminum housing make it an ideal location light for a wide variety of shooting environments. For that reason the AC/DC light comes with Panasonic, Sony, and Canon battery plates, as well as a 120 VAC adapter. The 5,600K daylight-balanced head dims from 10-100% and has a high CRI of 94 for accurate rendering of colors and subtle hues. Four 1/4"-20 taps are located on the unit's frame to accept accessories like the included 5/8" stand mount.

ikan PL60 reviews

Piatto PL60 Accent Light (6") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I've only had them for a few days and have tested them, but not had a chance to use them on an actual shoot. From my tests, the light seems very soft and even but still ample light for an interview setting. Build quality appears solid, mounting options are good and gel clips are a nice touch. The power options are also great. The fit for the Sony batteries is a little snug and difficult to get on and off, but it does work and is a solid mount. They are lightweight and small enough to fit into an existing camera bag, so it adds no additional gear to travel with. We'll see how they hold up under real life working conditions, but I'm encouraged so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Additional Power Options Love this light. Soft quality is such an improvement over older models. The fact that it is constantly soft and not dependent on a diffusion filter makes sure you never have a harsh source. Ikan makes a power plate adapter designed for it's monitors that will mount to this light and take a canon lpe6 style batter which i know is a common battery for former SLR shooters and canon users. From my test seems like the light will run at full power for about 45 minutes on one lpe6 and then start to dim. B&H # IKBP2E6

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the edge light technology These are advertised as accent lights which I'm sure they'll do fine. We haven't had a chance to use it as an accent but did use it as an on-cam light. Worked beautifully! The talent wasn't squinting and it threw off just enough soft even light at 5600k to fill the face without those pesky multiple shadows. Would have preferred the 4X7 on top but it wasn't on sale that day. Ikan's edge light technology (Three-hundred tiny LEDs point inward towards the light's frame where prisms reroute it through diffusion material that remains completely free of LED hot spots) works incredibly well. Built like a brick shiite house with four 1/4-20 females to mount it anywhere. Four gel clips and an easy-to-read battery meter and brightness gauge from a distance. No flicker like the cheap LED's out there or that ugly green they emit. The box ikan house them in is customizable. Once you've installed the right battery plate, you can remove the bottom rubber pad from the 3 pockets and store extra batteries. Once you remove the rubber pad at bottom where the light sits in you can place and store the fixture in there with the right plate, and a small battery attached so it's ready to go. Nice light ikan! I can see other light manufacturers looking real close at their technology. Bought 2 of these from BH's daily special so thanks for the deal guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, high quality light I purchased two for use as fill lights and as a close proximity key light for webcam shots while at my desk. Quality is very solid. The high color rendering index is highly appealing. The flexible power adapter and battery adapters make it very versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect highlight light for stills or video I bought this light as a way to make my still shots and video have better shadows and dimension when shooting with my Nikon D810. This light is extremely well made and with the three different battery backs supplied, it really offers fabulous flexibility if you don't want to be tethered to an AC cord. Also appreciate being able to work with a dimmer. Although the light is small in size, it throws off ample light for most uses. Excellent addition to my arsenal of photographic/video equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed Very well made light. Great for backlight in interviews. My only complaint is that the stand adapter doesn't fit snugly over a common light stand. When you tighten the screw it comes to rest at a slight angle. However the adapter is adjustable to angles all on its own. Just wish it would rest straight up...but the complaint is not enough to not want to make me buy more of these lights. The softness of the light is very nice. The option of feeding off a battery is also a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Wash- great form factor I use this product for product images, portraits and for a talent friendly eye light. The 1/4-20 sockets all around make it easy to mount and the gel clips are there when I need to add a CTO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice light It is a very nice compact light. I do a lot of traveling and interviews and this light would be a nice addition to my package.
