FotodioX C-318RLS overview

  • 1Description

Made of durable lightweight metal, the 9.9" diameter C-318RLS Flapjack Bi-Color LED Ring Light Kit from FotodioX is built around a light source that uses Edgelight technology, which 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 85 for faithful rendition of colors down to 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. The C-318RLS's central opening will fit up to 130mm-diameter lenses and a rod-mountable bracket is provided for your camera. At only 1/2-inch thick, the C-318RLS 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-F960 type batteries for total wireless freedom. The batteries get up to 3 hours run time at full power and 6.5 hours at half power. Besides battery and AC power options, the FlapJack comes with a custom-fitted case for storage and transport.

    FotodioX C-318RLS reviews

    C-318RLS Flapjack Bi-Color LED Ring Light Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Choice This is a solid piece of gear if you're looking for a ring light. The solution that I was looking for was a ring light for specialized portraits. A secondary consideration was that I wanted it to be portable. I initially purchased one of those $100+/- ring lights. They may be great for macro work but they were rubbish for doing portraits. They threw a lot of light but it was largely bad light. The build quality on the Fotodiox ring is outstanding. Totally solid! The variable and stepless control of the amount and temp. of the light is a huge plus for portrait work. The batteries are good and the accessories that are included in the kit are good as well. The carrying case is well made. I thought it curious that there were no instructions included in the box. Maybe a ring light doesn't require a lot of explanation but I was curious about charging the batteries. I have no problem recommending this product to anyone. That said there are a few considerations that you need to keep in mind. One is specific to this light and the other is just a general observation about using this type of ring light. You can mount the light on a light stand and shoot through it. That's really not a problem unless you're like me and like to move around a lot while you're shooting. If you're not going to mount the light on a stand then you need to attached it to your camera. MOST of the hardware is included but that rails that you'll need are not. I had some long rails (24) around but they're not good for this application. I ordered a set of 6 rails and they work perfectly. The second observation is that you need to work REALLY close to your model and I'm talking inches not feet. If you back away the ring catch lights in the model's eyes just turn into a solid circle. Careful of your model's eyes. If this is going to be your only light it's probably not a smart first light choice. But if you're just trying to change things up a bit it's a fun tool.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome for lighting donuts and such! I actually do like this light.� Nicely adjustable with temperature and intensity. The ONLY drawback so far, and this might be because of my Zacuto base plate, is when I mount this on the rods, the holes need to be raised up quite a bit. So when I do that it limits the distance I can push the rods thru the mount. Which also means that I can't go super wide with my lens because I will see the light in the frame. I can probably correct that with some sort of rod offset from the Zacuto.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect for the hero donut When your job is filming donuts, FotodioX Ring Light has you covered. This ring light covers all 360 degrees of your pastry. The adjustable color control will match your mood to your location. Warning...do not use on bear claws. I have also heard rumors of the "K" version coming soon for use on bagels, just in time for the holidays.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lighting gear Works great in low light situations with handheld or stand. Just make sure the lens in high enough on the handheld setup so the edge of the ring light does not block the lens.
