The Akurat MIX3 On-Camera LED Light is a compact, yet powerful color-mixable LED light source. Key features include:
- Color Mixing. With positions for both daylight (5600ºK) and tungsten (3200ºK), as well as mixing knob for anything in between, the MIX3 is ideal for shooting video or stills in mixed lighting on the go.
- High Output LED. The MIX3’s 40 surface-mounted LEDs offer an output of up to 1200 lumens at 2ft with a beam angle of 120º. While the light falloff is fairly abrupt with over a 50% decrease in output at 3.25ft, the MIX3 is designed for on-camera use at close distances as a fill.
- Battery Powered. Our MIX3 has the Sony L-series battery plate installed, with (1) Sony NP-F970 battery and charger included with the rental. You’ll see roughly 2.5 hours of use per battery, so plan ahead.
- Build. The durable, anodized aluminum body is well-equipped to withstand harsh conditions such as high humidity and extreme temperatures (both cold and hot). Being an LED light source, the unit itself produces much less heat than typical on-camera lights. There’s an attached articulating hotshoe mount that enables aiming the light, with a 1/4-20" thread on the bottom if a free hotshoe isn’t available.
