Product Description

The Foodie LED-312DS is a powerful and professional LED light panel, that lets you change the light"s color output anywhere between 5600K daylight and 3200K tungsten color temperatures. The 312DS is compact and versatile enough for countless shooting scenarios, all while remaining lightweight enough to bring along on every project. The 312DS is a complete kit that includes everything you need to mount this versatile wireless LED light on a camera or on a stand, and it all packs into the included premium custom case. The LED-312DS is equipped with 156 ultra-bright 5600k LEDs and 156 ultra-bright 3200k LEDs. The powerful LEDs offer full spectrum, beautifully soft light - ideal for location and studio productions for both photographers and filmmakers. The light level is fully dimmable from 10%-100% to adjust the light output. A second control adjusts the color temperature of the 312DS, choose any value between 5600K daylight to 3200K tungsten. The rear-mounted backlit LCD status display shows the remaining battery level, the current brightness level, and the current color temperature. Control and shape the light with the included all-metal barn doors. The barn doors lock securely into place for a secure fit, no matter how the light is mounted. Two included diffusion panels lock into place - one for softening the light, the other to convert the light output to match tungsten light sources. Dovetail mounting channels on all sides of the light lock together multiple 312DS light panels into a much larger light source. The 312DS can operate wirelessly using the included pair of Sony NP style batteries, and dual intelligent charger. Kit includes 312DS LED light, all-metal barn doors, a pair of Sony NP style rechargeable li-ion batteries, dual intelligent charger, premium ball head mount, AC adapter, car accessory port adapter, and a custom-fitted molded case with handle.

I spent a little more money on this kit and it was totally worth it!
Barb
Shooting natural light boudoir, as I do, I can set this up opposite of the window light and illuminate my subject, or a bed setting, with great results.
Michael E Cassidy
The case is a nice plus too, its small and holds the light and accessories well.

IMHO, this is hands-down the best single lighting system you can buy. The quality of the light is excellent, and you can adjust between a brighter 5000k light (basically outdoor sunlight or daylight exterior) and a warmer 3000k light (typical interior light, not fluorescent). This works well as a fill light in the daytime, although you might have to move it within 2 feet or so of the subject. But what is really great is that the light is dimmable, so you can adjust the intensity to your exact tastes. In addition, because you can switch/mix between the cooler and clinical 5k lights and the much warmer 3k lights, you can warm up or cool down your subject as you like. The battery life is very good and I have used these lights all day long. You can buy cheaper lights with plastic filters, but they just don't cast as nice of a light as these. I use a swivel to mount this on the end of a tripod and that way you can adjust the angle of the light as well. I have seen other LED systems that are $500 and they don't come close to this unit. You can use these lights for still photography as well and can really fine tune the lighting versus trying to use a flash and use gel filters. You can't beat the combination of being able to adjust the intensity and color with the two dials. I haven't seen anything close to this unit. And except for needing a tripod, the unit is very portable and versatile. If you get two of these units, I would venture to say you could shoot in almost any situation, even with a slow lens. I see a lot of sunset photos where the background is golden or warmer, but then the subject is lit with a white flash, and to me, that always makes it look, well, lit with a flash. With a unit like this, you can warm up the light to better match the fill light hitting your subject with the background, and create a much more natural looking portrait or image.

The big problem with using LED lights for photo and video work is color fidelity. Almost all of them have some sort of nasty color cast that remains on the image after it has been color corrected. This is due to the non-linearity in which it emits its color spectrum. This "quality" of light is reflected in the CRI - or "color rendering index". Sunlight is a perfect 100, and most other forms of light are lower than this. Any LED light which does not advertise a CRI is probably a pretty bad light, so buyer beware. This light claims a CRI of over 92, which is impressively good.

A few years back I bought a $40 LED light here off Amazon and it was just terrible. It left a nasty green cast to the images which made them only good for black and white. I literally used it once, then sold it - swearing off LED lights for serious photo work for nearly three years. Since then I've been using incandescent video lights for low-light photo work and have generally been happy. The issue with these, however, is that they are limited in output, have a fixed color temperature, and are power hungry. They were relatively inexpensive, very portable, and had decent (but not perfect) color - so they were good enough.

With the impressive specs of this light, I decided to venture back into LED lighting. After a couple wedding shoots with this, I am impressed with the light. They get fairly bright, use very little power, and have lots of great features such as a dimmer, color temperature variability (3200k to 5600k), and battery meter (YES! Finally).

I am also happy to report that unlike cheap LED lights of yesteryear, these have decent color. After some investigation, I suspect the >92 CRI rating is for the 5600k setting, not the 3200k setting, though.

The Fotodiox FDX-LED earns five stars because it is a very flexible, unique, approach to image lighting that encourages the user to be creative and to try a variety of options to get the lighting just right. It is small, compact, and light yet it provides a lot of power for any situation I have encountered from portraits, to boudoir, to macro, to pets. One can dial in the power and the color that help to make the image pop. The small size and versatility help to make it inconspicuous to the client/subject. I think, regardless of your photography level of expertise, this is a great and useful tool to throw in your pack as you go out the door to an assignment.

I love this little set. I just used this on a commercial shoot, outdoors at night, in a cave, and for lighting part of an interview. Versatile little champ of a light. The custom foam core packaging is amazing for the price of this little set. Would love to see a metal frame in the future, but not a bad light at all for the money. Way to go FOTODIOX!

This is a very nice little light. The Dimmable and Bi-color features were selling points for me. The accessories are a plus. You get TWO rechargeable Sony lithium batteries AND a charger which can charge both, but the light only runs off of one battery at a time. So you can also switch them out without the light even stopping, or have both attached and auto switch from one to the other. Unfortunately there is no dual-battery meter so you dont know which battery the light is running on, or the metering for each seperate battery.
The case is a nice plus too, its small and holds the light and accessories well. The barndoors are made of a heavy metal and seem a little junky and very heavy for the rest of the kit. In this case, I would have rather had them just be plastic to match the light. They or the bag also stink. I've actually removed mine from the bag, and found that my Lumiquest LTP softbox fits perfectly in the lid cover (where the barndoor was). I have velcro and can use this softbox on the LED light as well as my flashes.
The warming/cooling color feature is very nice, and you can dial it in to just about what you want. I usually dont want it completely warm, but around the middle, which adds a little warmth for skin tones without looking too yellow and fake. Have also noticed that the middle point of the color pot is also is the brightest output, as both sets of LEDs (white and yellow) are working to full capacity.
It has reasonable output and light throw for most indoor shooting, but don't expect to overpower the sun outdoors. With subdued sun/shade you can use it for a bit of fill however.
Overall, a very nice LED kit at a reasonable price. Great for fast shoots and nicely compact.
