The Bescor FP-312 On-Camera Bi-Color LED Light with Digital Display is a compact battery powered daylight/tungsten balanced on-camera light. It outputs a continuously variable color temperature light between 3200 and 5600K, and it features a built-in dimmer that can adjust the light's output from 100 to 10%. Built into the light is an LCD display panel that shows a digital readout of the brightness level, color temperature of the light and features a battery gauge so you know how much power you have left.
The light includes removable four-leaf barndoors, diffusion filter, two L-Series batteries, two car charger power cords, and an AC adapter. A 1/4″-20 threaded hole allows you to mount the light to your camera's accessory shoe via the included ball adapter. You can also stack multiple FP-312 lights together using the interlocking rail system. An included soft carry case allows you to easily pack and carry your light unit, barndoors, and included accessories to and from shoots.
Variable Color Temperature & Dimming
The FP-312 features a total of 312 LEDs, and a single knob that allows you to vary the color temperature of the unit from 3200 to 5600K. A separate knob controls the dimming of the unit, with a brightness range of 100 to 10%.
Digital Display Screen
The dimmer and color temperature settings are controlled by analog knobs, but the digital readout on the built-in display screen allows you to match the output of other units or repeat setups. The display also incorporates a four-step battery gauge so you know how much battery power you have remaining.
The included four-sided removable barndoors are constructed so the doors can interlock together, limiting light leak from the edges, controlling light spill, and providing directionality to your light. The side doors feature articulating leafs that provide you a fairly wide range of adjustment while still controlling light leaks from the edges of the doors.
Although you can attach diffusion gel to the barn doors, the FP-312 incorporates a slot for the included precut diffusion sheet that can be used with or without the barn doors. The diffusion is notched, and a safety tab engages the notch to prevent it from accidentally falling out.
The light unit features slots for two L-series batteries of any capacity, and includes two L-series batteries. The light can run on one or two batteries, or you can use the AC adapter to power the light via the power connector on the back of the unit.
The light incorporates a 1/4″-20 threaded mounting hole in the bottom of the unit, and an interlocking rail system that allows you to stack units vertically or horizontally.
