COMER Torch 300 Variable Color LED On-Camera Light (2500 to 9900K) – Newsshooter
The COMER Torch 300 Variable Color LED On-Camera Light has a Kelvin color temperature range of 2500K to 9900K.
It is being touted as a high output on-camera light and it has a claimed output of 7540lx when used at 5500K at a distance of 3.3′ / 1m. For a light that only draws 14W, this output sounds too high to me, but that is what is being claimed.
This light has a very tight 24° beam angle which means it won’t be suitable for a lot of lighting applications. This fixture is going to have to be used as a hard source in most situations, however, it does ship with a magnetic diffuser.
