HIVE LIGHTING 100-C overview

  • 1Description

The Wasp 100-C Studio PAR Spot LED Light from Hive is a lightweight, versatile LED source with a small form factor and superior performance features. The light has a 22-degree, highly polished reflector and 4-way barndoors, making it a great choice for selective lighting or long throw work. Among the available optional accessories includes a 180-degree flood reflector for wider coverage. The 100-C has a standard yoke with a 5/8" receiver for stand mounting.

Control is the key word in the construction of the 100-C. Hive uses what they call Perfect S.H.O.T controls which is an umbrella term for complete control and adjustment of every aspect of light output. Part of the success of the system is due to the use of 5-chip LED blending. Instead of the traditional 3 colors, Hive uses Red, Amber, Lime, Cyan, and Sapphire for nearly infinite color combinations with a high CRI/TLCI rating of 98 and 97. Color can be adjusted from a very warm amber 1650K to an icy blue 8000K. But control doesn't stop there. There's 360-degree hue adjustment around the color wheel as well as 0-100% saturation control. The 100-C can also be dimmed from 0-100%. Once you've grown accustomed to the 100-C's features, you'll want to take it everywhere, and thanks to its 100-240 VAC power supply, you can. The 100-C comes with the previously mentioned 22-degree reflector, a power supply mounting bracket, a set of 4-leaf barndoors, and a studio yoke with pipe clamp.

Perfect S.H.O.T. Controls
The 100-C has 0-100% saturation adjustment, 360° hue control, output regulation from 0-100%, and color temperature control from 1650 to 8000K for near infinite combinations to get you your precise balance.
5-Chip Color Blending
The 100-C uses red, amber, lime, cyan and sapphire LEDs instead of the traditional 3 color system to achieve a high CRI (98) and TLCI (97) to render colors faithfully with no output loss or color degradation.
Small and Light
The 100-C is 7.5" long and weighs just 5 lb.

    HIVE LIGHTING 100-C reviews

    Wasp 100-C Omni-Color LED Light Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Profoto but for motion! I picked up this light (6 of them) because I'm a photographer that wanted to get into shooting video. This light worked with all my Profoto light modifiers so my workflow could match how I shoot stills (and most importantly I didn't have to buy all new accessories). It works great! Surprisingly bright and sturdy. The body is made out of aluminum and the whole thing seems pretty bombproof. My primary concern with shooting with an LED was color quality but what sold me was the color science that went into it explained on their website. Feels like a future! Also, I can control all the lights from my iphone which is really nice. Also it changes colors if you're into that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next Gen LED at a reasonable price (dollars and size/weight) I shoot corporate videos for a living and purchased 3 of these for lighting interviews, etc. There a number of huge advantages these have over the many other lights I have tried (tungsten, panel LED, Kinos, fresnel LEDs, etc.): 1.) Single point source - One of these lights will cast one shadow, which looks much more natural than the many shadows from a LED panel or Digital Sputnick. 2.) No heat - These are super safe and easy to operate without worrying about heat. It is also nice to be able to pack up much quicker than with tungsten lights. 3.) Weight/Size - These are WAY smaller than most similar light sources out there and are great for travel. They have about the same output as a Litepanels Astra but are much more compact. 4.) Easy to customize - I use Profoto Softboxes with these and they are very quick and easy to setup and it is nice to know I can customize my setup with standard Profoto accessories as needed. 5.) Beautiful light quality and options - The white light is very natural and you can customize the output to literally any color in the rainbow. 6.) Wireless control built in - You can control the lights with an iPhone without purchasing any additional accessories. 7.) Plug in anywhere - you can power a ton of these off of standard outlets. Very convenient when traveling and shooting on location. 8.) Price - These are insanely affordable for the quality you get. Under half the cost of the DS1 and much more travel friendly. If they were the same price, I'd still be leaning toward the Wasp 100-C. There are only a few cons: 1.) The app (for wireless control) needs some work. It is not very user friendly and I find connecting and reconnecting to lights to be a little spotty. That being said, I emailed Hive and they say they are working on improving it. The Digital Sputnick App looks amazing by comparison. 2.) Yoke design - I find the yoke is annoying to tighten/loosen because the rubber flares out more than I would expect and gets a little stuck. It still tightens securely, but making adjustments is a little bothersome. 3.) Output - This isn't actually a con of THIS light. This light has incredible output for it's wattage and size. But I'm looking forward to Hive releasing a 200w or 300w version that is compatible with the same wireless system. I'll pick up at least one for my kit when that happens. Overall, I'm super happy with these lights. They are really versatile, well thought out, and can't be beat for travel/location corporate work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from With this light, No more Gels... So far so good on this light..A true 650w equivalent ..I like that I do not have to use gels anymore. I just ordered the 10 degree spot reflector to increase output and throw. One thing that could be improved is the bracket..sometimes when barn doors are on the light starts to pivot down and I have to adjust it..Over all pleased with it and may get another down the road..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a second one I shoot wedding videos and decided to invest into a second one of these. Hive has upgraded the power supply to a smaller and longer cord for this light which was a great surprise. The barn doors were missing and I contacted Jon & Robert from Hive. They took care of me of course and my barn doors are arriving soon..Nothing like buying a product made in the USA with great customer service..Highly recommend..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creative light with a couple of minor issues Issues: 1) Yoke clamp does not tighten well, will be an issue with heavier modifiers. 2) With saturation set to 000, the color temperature is not accurate, and �worse, the CRI is well below 90. I found a video review online. The guy had a color meter and figured out that if you set saturation to 28 (adding red) the CRI improves to 97+, but for 5600 k the temperature must be set to 7600 and for 3200 the temperature must be set at 3600. Tis worked for my light and it matched other lights that I know to be accurate. This may have been addressed in a firmware release but I did not check as I am returning the light - not because this is a deal killer but because I feel that a different light I was evaluating fits my current needs better. It's the old ROI rule. Positives:� Very high CRI when set correctly. Ability to set to strong colors - Red, Green, Voilet, blue will be very useful. With the 22� reflector the light puts out a lot of light. Without it the 180� spread is useful for soft key, wish it was a tad brighter. The mini Source Four available as an extra is killer. Great versatile and creative light.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good light quality, bad mounting clamp Light quality is great, although not as powerful as I'd like... but that's why I also have an aputure 300d. The wireless phone control works okay, although with a Space Light attached to my Wasp, I had to stand about 2 feet away from the light to get it to connect to the iPhone App. My biggest gripe with my two Wasp 100c's is the clamp that attaches the lights to your light stand. The TILT adjustment clamp does NOT hold firmly enough. Tightening the lever down as hard as I could, I would notice the light slowly pointing towards the ground over time. Such a stupid thing not to design properly on a light of this quality. As a result, the lights are very annoying to use if I can't even point them where I want to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use par kit with high quality color and white output This light is amazing!! Easy controls with fine adjustments to CCT, Hue, Saturation and dimming make it so I can match any environment. Also the strong colors are fun. Super light weight, so it's easy to travel with. Looking forward to trying the fresnel accessory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun! Great lamp, fantastic quality. For some reason no spot lens is included, and the yoke design isn't great (it needs to be really tight to remain secure).
