Capture extreme close-ups or portraits with the VM-160 LED Macro Ring Light from Bolt, which features eighteen high-output LEDs with a guide number of 21' / 6.4m at ISO 100. The light features six levels of brightness adjustment from -1.5 EV to +1.5 EV and the continuous light source helps you easily see the effects of the lighting as well as enable use during video. Four clip-on diffusers are included to further adjust the quality of light from the ring light: clear, frosted, amber, and blue. Users can set the light to illuminate from only the left or right side for added dimensionality when shooting. Additionally, to help conserve battery power, the light can be set to work in flash mode, which will turn on the light for approximately a half second each time the shutter is released.
The power unit features a 1.6" backlit LCD monitor for displaying battery power and ring light settings. It attaches to your camera via an accessory shoe and requires four AA batteries. A stand is also included to hold the power unit on its own, or on a light stand or tripod via the integrated 1/4"-20 thread. For mounting the ring light to your lens, eight different adapter rings are included to fit a range of lens diameters: 49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm. Controller unit uses a universal type hot shoe, and is not compatible with cameras that use the older Sony/Minolta shoe.
Not compatible with Fuji X-T2 and X-Pro 2.
Light Mode will keep the light on continuously.
Flash Mode will activate the light for approximately one half second at a time when the shutter is depressed; this will help conserve battery power.
Left and Right Flash Modes will set only the left or right half of the light to turn on in order to give more dimensionality to your subject matter.
