LED illumination is becoming the lighting source of choice, and this latest Metz lamp is designed to be compact and powerful.
Measuring in at much the same size as a standard mobile phone; 130 x 65 x 9.3mm and weighing in at just 135g the lightweight flat design means that the S500 is ultraportable.
117 high-powered SMD LED’s produce the 1000 lumen illumination and these are bi-coloured with 60 white and 57 warm. This mix of LED’s enables colour temperatures from 3000-5500 kelvin.
At 1000 Lumen output with dimmer and temperature control the S500 is the perfect travel partner and features a standard 1/4-inch thread so it can be mounted on a standard tripod.
In the box alongside the lamp is a small hotshoe adapter, ensuring maximum flexibility.
Light quality is as ever important, and the lamp has high-quality CRI 96 LED lights. On the back of the lamp is a small OLED which displays the temperature, illumination, percentage and battery runtime.
There’s also a diffuser that can be easily mounted with the included silicon bands to create a softer lighting effect.
The Metz Mecalight S500 will go on sale for a SRP of £119.99 for more details check out intro2020.co.uk
