To create a larger light source, up to nine AL-H198 panels can be attached together using extension slots on all four sides of the light. The slim and frameless design of the light means that when multiple lights are connected, there are no gaps or light leaks. One extension attachment piece comes included, which also serves as a 1/4"-20 adapter. Also included are a swivel shoe mount adapter for camera mounting, a diffusion filter, and an orange warming filter.
