Cameras may get smaller. But available light doesn't change. When light comes from above it creates unwanted shadows that are accentuated in a video picture - regardless of the camera's low-light efficiency. An on-camera light is an essential tool for professional interview video.Anton/Bauer's UltraLight is the choice for on-camera lighting on more cameras around the world than any other ENG light. But to use an Ultralight with a handheld camera it is necessary to either up-convert the voltage of a small consumer battery to 12 volts or to down-convert the standard 14 volt battery voltage to 6 volts for the camera. Or else you have to carry extra batteries just to run the light. And 6-volt consumer lights simply aren't designed for serious professional use.ElightZ is the first professional on-camera light designed specifically for handheld cameras. Operating at 6 volts, the same as the camera, ElightZ shares power with the ElipZ 10k battery through its exclusive Powerplug connector. Constructed of lightweight and durable high temperature polycarbonate, the two-stage hinged boom arms of the ElightZ offer a virtually unlimited range of adjustability. Fully extended, the head is over five inches high and can be extended forward to eliminate lens shadowing.ElightZ high-efficiency 10w halogen light packs photometric performance to blend almost any available light. The light head bezel removes easily for bulb changes. The bezel also features two mounting points for a wide variety of gels and spun (included) to effortlessly adapt to any lighting conditions. ElightZ mounts quickly and easily to any camera mounting type - shoe or stud - with a unique modular mounting mechanism. Best of all at the end of a shooting day, the light folds away neatly into a compact package and can remain on the camera without adding weight or interfering with camera operation.
