ikan Onyx 240 Overview

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.

Control

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.

    I'm hesitant only because there's no option to use a power supply. Anyone find this is a problem or is performance good enough via batteries only?
    Asked by: Justin
    Your info is incorrect. You can buy a power supply, or use batteries. Sony L series work, get larger ones as the ikan batteries dont last long. I have one onyx and might get two more as they are great for run and gun, travel shoots, as its easy to pack in my camera backpack.

    question

    Is there any kind of diffuser that this light comes with or is available for it?
    Asked by: Bill
    This light does not include diffusion, nor are we aware of a specific diffusion product for it. However it is a dimmable light, you will be able to control the amount of light it is outputting with the dimmer.

    question

    Is this light suitable for use as studio lighting for digital portrait photography?
    Asked by: Nigel
    I suppose it could be used in a low budget setup, but the output is not very bright and the surface area of the source is pretty small, so the light is not that diffuse. It is easy to work with and versatile in both color and output controls, so if you're working with multiple light sources in a totally controlled environment (where you can control ambient light) and you're good with cranking up your ISO, this would be an OK option.

    I used two lights. Nice flood spread and color WB preset. I used the two small batt at full power I got 20 minutes then I changed batteries to two 970 at fulll power Approximately one hour and 10 minutes is there a better battery solution
    Asked by: Binyamin
    That's the largest battery you can get for this, that I know of, but it may also depend on the manufacturers of your batteries. As you know, some manufacturers may build better quality and longer lasting batteries.
