FotodioX C-300RS overview

  • 1Description

The 10" diameter C-300RS FlapJack LED Bi-Color Edge Light from Fotodiox is a light source that uses Edgelight technology that entails pointing LEDs toward the outer edge of the fixture and reflecting them back toward the middle for ultra soft results. This versatile light also has color that's variable from 3200 to 5600K while maintaining a CRI of 91 to 92 for faithful rendition of colors and even the subtlest hues. It's dimmable as well from 10-100%. A back-lit LCD indicator shows light level, color temperature and battery life status. At only 1/2 inch thick the C-300RS fits where other lights just can't go. And you can work close-up too, without fear of causing the talent discomfort since running the light all day at full power barely makes it warm to the touch.

The FlapJack can be used anywhere in the world thanks to its 110-240 VAC multi-voltage power adapter. The fixture also comes with two NP-F74 type batteries for total wireless freedom. The battery gets about 3 hours 36 minutes run time at full power. Besides battery and AC power options the FlapJack comes with a mounting yoke for a 5/8" light stand stud and a custom fitted case for storage and transport.

    FotodioX C-300RS reviews

    C-300RS FlapJack LED Bi-Color Edge Light (10") is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Happy I've only used these indoors, and they throw out a decent amount of light for that. These would probably be ideal to use for interview-type setups, but I'm using it to film a promo for a circus performer. I'm still able to place the lights within ten feet, you might need something stronger if you have to cover more distance. Only caveat is make sure you double check that your lights are all functioning properly. I ordered two of these and one of the larger 18 (which is great!) and one of these C-300R's had a defective dimmer switch. I'll get an exchange and I'll be all set. The other two lights have worked perfectly so far and I'm very happy with them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from well made but not much power! Although the soft diffused projection is very nice, but there is not enough punch to be used as a key light. It comes in a very nice case (but a bit too large) with all accessories including two batteries and a double charger. The other issue with it is that because of the design and being round with highs on each side, you can not easily add any snoot or any flags to control the light spill. It just good for an overall soft ambient lighting situation. It takes more room to pack this for traveling than other LED lights I have which give me more punch with added heavy diffusion to match the softness to this light. It can work well with cameras with high ISO and lower lighting levels.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It could be the tool you're looking for I've been using this as an eye light, a rim light and even as a main source some times. I like having it as an eye light because it is round, and I prefer that look over a square or rectangular eye light. This light is very versatile. I'm using this for interviews and short narratives mostly. It is not a do everything light by any means, but creates a great wash that is relatively soft. If you need incredibly soft light, like very cloudy day soft, you will need more diffusion for this light. The bi-color feature is really truly amazing. I really only use it at the 5600K or 3200K because anywhere in the middle gets a little magenta. The dimming is really fantastic too. While I do think anyone who is pushing their filmmaking can get a lot from this light, I would say that to get the most out of it the light pairs well with a camera that does well in low light. I use a Canon C100 MKII with mine. I do wish it had some type of barn door accessory you could get, and that's the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I think it would be difficult to put doors on something round though. Flagging it is fine too. This can be a great tool in your kit if you have the vision to use it. In the attached image the FlapJack is the only light source.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good lighting solution for travel I've owned the daylight only versions of the 10" Flapjack for a few years and recently ordered three of the bi-color for more flexibility. I find these lights are great for travelling with a small kit for lighting interviews. They're compact and light, and because of their design, there's no need to bring additional soft boxes or diffusion. Just as they are, they produce a very pleasing and soft light that wraps around a face quite nicely. They can also be placed close to the subject without being too distracting or difficult on their eyes. I haven't done any technical measurement or critical testing, but the color and overall quality of light it produces appears to be very good. They're really meant for small interview setups so don't expect them to light up a room or anything, however, I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much light they did put out. All in all, a very good product that I use a lot.
