Stunning light quality in an ultra-portable form. The original and patented Ice Light is one of the industry’s most popular tools for on-location lighting.
For effective use in film and photography, Ice Light 2 is engineered with a patented LED technology offering 50% brighter output than the original. Ice Light 2 offers 1,740 lumens of beautiful daylight-balanced output while maintaining a compact housing.
The Ice Light 2 features a removable, replaceable lithium ion battery. This battery provides over an hour of runtime at full power and can be charged inside and outside of the unit.
Nikon Ambassador Jerry Ghionis is widely regarded as one of the top wedding photographers in the world. Based in both Melbourne and Beverly Hills, Jerry has developed a successful career based around his unique ability to capture the magic of individuals. His creative vision led him to design both the Ice Light and the Omega Reflector, two completely unique and game-changing lighting tools for photographers.
Ice Light 2's LEDs are highly efficient and pure in color with low energy consumption and a long lifespan. These impressive LEDs are daylight-balanced at 5500K and are rated for over 50,000 hours use.
On a scale of 100, the Color Rendering Index (CRI) measures a light’s ability to reveal accurate colors, skin tones and hues. The Ice Light 2 sports a stunning 97 CRI, meaning your subject will be presented in near perfect light.
Weighing a mere 20 ounces, the Ice Light 2 can be easily operated with one hand, giving photographers and filmmakers the ability to simultaneously shoot and light their subjects.
The Ice Light 2's high-end internal ballast ensures a flicker-free output and stable light consistency.
Unlike traditional LED panels, the Ice Light has a built-in diffuser that is custom-designed to protect the LEDs and create a 73-degree beam angle. This casts a wide spread of incredibly soft light over a large area.
Ice Light 2 is multi-voltage from 100 to 240-volts, allowing for worldwide use. It’s also is CE certified for safety for use internationally, giving you the ability to travel abroad without worry.
Granted, the Ice Light 2 stands on it's own as a light but I found another important use. Before I setup my strobes in the studio, I use the Ice Light 2 to explore lighting angles and shadows. The form factor makes this process real easy and fast. Using it to quickly pre light the scene, it reduces the setup time for my strobes and allows me to workout new lighting scenarios in no time.
I thought I'd try the Ice Light 2 as it's reduced price seemed to hit a sweet spot for me. I also have been looking for a good, dimmable, self-contained light source that I could use as a key, eye-light or accent light and it's been very useful and a lot of fun to play with. It's charge lasts a good few hours of use, it's nice and bright with good colour, and most of all it's so self-contained with no batteries hanging off or cables at all, so terrific for hiding in the back of set behind a chair or under a bed to throw a small fill area into a shadowy set. I should have bought two.
My wife and I own both the Ice Light I and Ice Light 2 and we have just been thrilled with the quality of the light both Ice Lights put out. The Ice light 2 is definitely brighter and worth the investment. There is also something to be said regarding the "WOW" factor when you use the Ice Light. It says to all our clients that we are professionals and that we will invest in the absolute best to capture great photographs. Another added bonus is Jerry is happy to sign them if you train with him or meet him at any of the photographer shows.
