The Verata 1080 is an on-camera light with 160 powerful LEDs. The unit comes in both a daylight and bi-color model. Daylight units have 160 daylight LEDs, while bi-color units have 80 daylight LEDs and 80 tungsten LEDs. The unit runs off of a Sony NP-F battery. A Sony NP-F770 can power the light for more than 4 hours at full power.
This light can be dimmed from 0-100%, via a dimmer knob on the back of the light, without any noticeable shift in color quality. Bi-color units have an additional knob which allows you to smoothly blend between the daylight and tungsten LEDs. The bi-color lights are perfect for interviews when you may need to warm or cool the light based on your talent's skin tone.
Both units come with a Diffusion Filter which softens the light. The daylight unit also comes with a Tungsten filter that calibrates the light's color temperature from 5600K to 3200K. All filters have magnets on them which makes it easy to swap out filters quickly and securely. The Verata 1080 has four barn doors that allow you to eliminate spill coming off the side of the light. The barn doors fold down flush with the face of the light, protecting the light's LEDs during travel. The unit has a 1/4"-20 tap-in on its underside. This allows you to mount the light on a ball head for use on top of a camera. With a clamp and articulating arm, this unit can also be mounted in a variety of locations.
