Manfrotto Croma2 overview

  • 1Description

The Croma2 LED Light from Manfrotto is an on-camera fixture that uses (SMT) Surface Mount Technology in its construction of the LED array for improved performance and a high color fidelity (CRI) rating of >93. Rather than using all tungsten or daylight balanced LEDs, Manfrotto uses both, allowing you to dial in 3100K or 5600K or anywhere in between to meet the demands of your surroundings without resorting to filters. Light intensity is equally flexible from 1-100% without flicker with the simple twist of a knob.

The Croma2 is flexible with power too. It runs on 6 AA batteries, a Sony L-type Li-ion battery or on its included multi-voltage AC adapter. Although the Croma2 is intended for camera mounting, its included ball head makes it easily adaptable to stand-mounting.

    Manfrotto Croma2 reviews

    CROMA2 LED Light is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from this has potential, but quality issues. In theory this is a good light... We did a lot of research before buying these but the quality was a total flop. We got this the day before a shoot, put batteries in it and tested it, then went to shoot and 5 minutes in it went dark! Totally stopped making light. Then we came home and a day later we put new batteries in it, turned it on, put it max brightness, and faced to towards the wall, then 1 minute later the light died again! It would be good if it worked, puts out lots of light, but it let us down on a night shoot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect portable continuous light source... Great light weight portable light. I use this on light stands for continuous lighting when backlighting is a must. 6AA last about 8 hrs at full power. I don’t need to change the batteries often which is nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice lighting solution First, let me say that the CROMA2 is not an inexpensive LED light. I looked at many units that cost far less before purchasing this light. Why did I decide on CROMA2 after all the research? Manfrotto designed a very flexible light source. It employs 12 LED's at 3100k and 12 at 5600k. You can adjust color balance anywhere in-between. Overall LUX output is adjustable from 1% to 100%; which maximum at 1m is 900...this being midpoint color at full brightness. That's a pretty good output. The beam angle is 50 degrees...so balance between flood and spot. Diffuser is included. It's CRI is >93, and that's very nice. In terms of color temperature, you could measure with a spectrophotometer and make your own marks around the dials for future reference. But I would suggest simply using your eyes and dialing in color temperature with the illuminance at 50% or more to make a good judgement; less than 20% or minimal the potentiometer will be a bit coarse. The construction is excellent, and power options are well considered. Choice of AA size batteries; alkaline, Lithium-Ion, nickle metal hydride rechargeable, etc., plus supplied adapter for Sony type cells and support for D-Tap port. Includes universal AC adapter. This unit mounts via 1/4x20 thread to supplied hot shoe/ball mount for your camera. Or as I have mostly employed it; Manfrotto Variable Friction Magic Arm affixed to MT055CXPRO4 tripod. Very nice for portraits in studio, nature photography under challenging conditions, copy stand exposures and beyond. It is designed to be used on-camera, or remotely with flash units...a very nice fill option on battery wherever you need it. With the variable color temperature/LUX output, flexibility, and quality construction...hard to ask for more.
