This bright Full Spectrum light is made specifically for use with Full Spectrum cameras. The illuminator's unique shape eliminates the spot light effect you see with many lights with a bright circle of light in the center and the rest of the areas darker. This design allows a better distribution of light and all the various lights of differing spectrums all blend together smoothly. It can be mounted on a tripod. You can also attach a hot shoe adapter for easy mounting on various camera brackets. It runs off one 9 volt battery and will last approximately 5 - 8 hours depending on the type of battery and the conditions at the location.
