We at B&H are happy to announce the new Knowled M600D Daylight LED Light and accessories from Godox. Designed for use in video productions, the M600D is extremely bright, kicking out 15,700 lux at 9.8', for a powerful beam of daylight that you can dim in increments as small as 0.1%, and choose from a variety of dimming curves using the included controller or the available Godox Light App. Providing a high CRI and TLCI rating, the light’s output provides for luxurious and accurate color rendition. While some lighting setups will benefit from the brute force of the Knowled M600D, especially when working in daylight exteriors, a more refined touch is often the key to creating a moving light setup. Available accessories include a 10" Fresnel lens that amplifies the fixture’s output, creating a crisp beam with a sharp well-defined edge suitable for casting deep shadows and creating dramatic lighting.
The 10" Fresnel allows you to take advantage of the light’s smooth spot/flood adjustment mechanism, so you can adjust the sharpness of the beam from sharp to soft and gentle, that wraps your subject’s face for a soft, beautiful, and natural-looking image. Barndoors allow you to cut and shape the beam, helping to control spill for good contrast on your set, or for creating dramatic slashes of light. This powerful fixture is a useful addition to your video lighting kit, and it can be powered by AC or DV power sources, allowing you to take it on locations where AC power is scant. An integrated cooling fan, silent to the ear so you can keep the fan on during your sync sound takes, keeps your light running without overheating, avoiding down time.
The M600D and its accessories offer a groundbreaking combination of brightness, efficiency, and usefulness, and are poised to become a workhorse in your stable of video production tools.
