ikan Onyx 240 overview

  • 1Description

The Onyx 240 Bi-Color On-Camera LED Light from ikan has an output of roughly 250W at full power, yet draws only 30W. It is a bi-color light that enables you to adjust the color temperature of the fixture's output from 3200 to 5600K and features a CRI of 95 and TLCI of 96 in both Tungsten and Daylight. Power on/off, dimming, and color temperature are controlled from the back of the fixture via four buttons. A two-digit LED screen is shared for dimming and color temp, with an indicator light informing you of which characteristic you are controlling.

The fixture requires two L-series batteries, and ships with two batteries that are the equivalent of a 550 L-series battery and a dual battery charger. You can also power the fixture from an optional AC power supply that outputs 13 to 17 VDC. The built-in diffusion helps prevent the effect of multiple cast shadows that afflict some LED array-type lights. A built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole, and the included cold shoe adapter enable mounting the fixture on your camera. Also included are a removable handle and removable light stand adapter, which mount via the 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole.

On the back of the fixture are four buttons:
  • Power on/off
  • Plus
  • Minus
  • M - select

  • The M button enables switching between dimming and color temperature. An LED indicator lights up to indicate which characteristic of the fixture you are controlling. A two digit display screen indicates dimming from 10 to 99% and color temperature from 32 to 56.
    The fixture has two slots for L-Series type batteries, as well as a coaxial port for power from an optional AC adapter. When powering from batteries, you must use two batteries to power the fixture, it does not work with only one battery.

    ikan Onyx 240 reviews

    Onyx 240 Bi-Color On-Camera LED Light is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more than I expected! This slim, bright light put out much more light than I was expecting for such a compact and thin package. Whether I mounted it on a stand on the camera shoe- this light looked much better on the subject and on the job that I could have possibly expected at this price point. Just like its little brother I also ordered from B&H, this light has a shoe mount, light stand adapter and handle (for hollywooding) with a smart design that prevents rotation while attached. I will definitely be adding more of these lights to my kit. I would prefer knobs to buttons but controlling dimming or color temperature is still relatively simple.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good light I had been using the Switronix TorchLED Bolt for that last few years. The Bolt was good but this Onyx is much better in regards to its color accuracy and the soft, even lighting it produces. The Bolt was spotty and the whites were always a little off with it. The only issue I have with the light so far is that it does not have dials to adjust brightness and color temp, when shooting an event like a wedding where you might be running from one area to the next and encountering different lighting situations the dials work better than tiny buttons, the buttons also make a clicking noise so your mic may pick them up if you try to adjust settings on the light while the camera is recording. In closing this light is very much worth the money and I highly recommend it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective unit The light is great, looks solid, very bright, and color is accurate. However, I got a defective unit, and sending it back is not worth. The problem is that sometimes the orange LEDs simply dont turn on. I have to turn the unit off, remove the battery, and restart, and suddenly like magic the orange LEDs come alive. In a situation of professional shooting, this can be very annoying, so I keep it in 5600K all the time (cause the white leds always work). This shows lack of quality control from IKan , which will prevent me to go with them again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright, Rugged, professional LED at affordable price I picked up a few of the Ikan Onyx lights as its always good to have small compact, battery operated LED lights in ones kit as you never know when you will need them. �Needless to say, these are some great lights. �I got two of the smaller Onyx 120's and one of the Onyx 240 The Onyx lights are rugged, built out of metal (aluminum) they can take a beating. �The light output is amazing for a a small compact fixture that is bi-color. �The run time on a pair of �NP battery is also very impressive, about 3 to 4 hours or more on the larger NP 970 battery. I used the smaller Onyx 120s �on my Discovery Science Channel special as the only light while exploring the Chernobyl Nuclear Complex and the city of Pripyat.� In the attached photos you can see how bright one single 120 unit is. �The only thing lighting the scenes in both photos is the Ikan Onyx bouncing off the walls. � (I have a small headlamp so I can see the controls on the camera and geiger counter) I can't recommend this product enough, tough, bright, and compact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build quality B&H had this light on sale, so I bought a couple to try.� I'm glad I made the purchase.� The build quality is very good and the CRI / TLCI color accuracy is about the best I have seen.� This LED is light weight and compact, with amazing output.� I got two Impact light stands to go along with these.� Now� I need to find a case just the right size to carry two lights with batteries and chargers, and another case for the light stands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Well built, very bright! Brilliant idea to do away with knobs that can break off. Comes with every possible accessory one would need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I do a lot of weddings and corporate interviews. I have been using some 12" led panels, but lately I have been flying a bit for jobs and the 12" panels are just a little too big to put in a compact case. These ikan Onyx 240 lights are light weight, but bright. They are very nicely diffused, so simulating a window or natural light is easily done, but you can also light up a wedding reception or event with a pair of these. Battery life is decent with the included batteries.� One note, you have to use a pair of batteries to get the unit to turn on. It won't turn on with only one battery. This is kind of annoying since my other lights will run on one battery if needed. The unit doesn't have a power supply to run of AC power, the included 12v plug is only for charging the batteries and not powerful enough to run the light off a wall outlet.� If you want light weight compact lights that have great color and power for small rooms or interviews, these are great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Panasonic DX200 Camera The control this unit provides in intensity and color temperature is perfect for the fill I need both inside and outside. �It site nicely on the mounting shoe of the camera as well as a regular light stand. �The batteries never went down and charging time is within reasonable limits. �Great unit for our needs.
