Discovery 10-watt HID Video Light (VLDL0010)

Ultra Compact Video Arc light with adjustable ball joint extension arm, 10 watt HID Metal Halide Bulb and O-ring kit. To be used with 2 NP-F550 or 2 NP-F570 SONY® Batteries. (Batteries and charger not included)

Points of Interest

  • High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamp compared to a Quartz-Halogen bulb.
  • The output light of an HID lamp has a color temperature of 6000º- 7500º Kelvin which is daylight condition temperature. This is significantly higher and much whiter than that of a typical quartz-halogen light which it’s color temperature is 3000º Kelvin. As a result the HID light is a preferred source for underwater video.
  • Due to the large difference in Color Temperature between the 10-Watt HID Lamp which is 7000º K and a 30-Watt Halogen bulb which is 3000º K, the perceived output and penetration of the 10-Watt HID light is greatly noticeable.
  • Quartz halogen bulbs, which are normally yellow in color, have the tendency of decreasing in brightness as the battery voltage drops. HID light combined with it’s electronic ballast will keep the output light temperature constant even though the batteries voltage drops. The ballast is capable of drawing less current and keeping lamp at it highest brightness.
