Portable, with an extremely bright color output, this SmallRig RC 220B Bi-Color LED Monolight is suitable for both still and video work. Filmmakers and photographers with all levels of experience are sure to appreciate its build quality and flexibility. It features a variable color output from 2700 to 6500K for interior, exterior, and mixed light situations. The fixture is more powerful than SmallRig's RC120, easily powerful enough to be used as a key light for narrative productions or for interviews. Using the included hyper reflector creates a beam with an intense center and smooth falloff to the edges. You can steplessly adjust the brightness of the fixture to get exactly the right brightness level.

Power the fixture using the included AC/DC power supply or a user-supplied 14.4V/26V battery with an optional D-Tap to 3-pin XLR power cord. The integrated cooling fan turns on automatically to prevent the light from overheating, and at 30db the fan is quieter than a refrigerator or most whispers. Featuring nine modes for creative lighting, the fixture can be used for a variety of dramatic effects. For adding softboxes and other light diffusing/shaping tools, the fixture is compatible with Bowens light-control accessories. An integrated display screen allows you to see the light's settings at a glance, while for adjustments you can control the light locally or via the SmallGoGo app, which provides wireless control over your fixture from up to 330' away.

Output
The light features a variable color temperature of 2700 to 6500K and has an output of 8670 lux at 3.3'. Utilizing the included hyper reflector will brighten the fixture's output to 84,500 lux.
9 Light Effects
Paparazzi, fireworks, lightning, faulty bulb, TV, breath, flash, party, flame.
Control
Local and SmallGoGo APP control, which can simultaneously control multiple SmallRig lights and achieve extended signal coverage and control distance thanks to the built-in Mesh Bluetooth networking module.
Cooling
The heat dissipation system turns on when the temperature of the lamp body exceeds 140°F, and is quiet at only 30dB (±2dB) at 3.3'.
Standard Bowens Mount
The fixture features a Bowens mount, so it is fully compatible with a variety of accessories. The yoke has a built-in receiver for an optional umbrella.
Power
The fixture features an XLR power input connecter, so you can power it from a user-supplied 14.4V battery via an optional D-Tap to 3-pin XLR cable from a professional battery (either 14.4 or 26 volts) with a capacity above 150Wh, or from the included 12 to 30 VDC wide-range power supply.
Additional Features
  • Easy to attach or remove lighting accessories with a built-in umbrella hole
  • Barrier-free 270° tilt adjustment
  • A built-in display screen on the fixture shows brightness, power remaining, AC power supply connected, wireless frequency, and FX mode
  • Compact and portable, the fixture comes with a durable storage bag that has a precision-molded insert to hold the light, a standard cover, and a power cable for easy storage and protection during transport

Are there any issues using this with a fresnel? The Amaran 200x has rows of cool and warm LEDs, so using a fresnel with that light is problematic. The SmallRig 220b seems to have similar rows of LEDs.
Asked by: Erik
No. The following system does not adapt to any fresnel system.
