” I have been calling this the James Bond of lights. Not only is it sexy-looking and made in the United Kingdom, it is highly intelligent, powerful and efficient at its job.
“Many lights, especially LEDs, produce a spiky spectrum or have large chunks of spectrum missing, but the Anova showed a nice smooth gradation through the whole visible light spectrum, which in turn means rich, beautiful and natural colour rendition in the subjects you are shooting.
“The app can be used with iPad or iPhone, and provides accurate control of brightness, colour temperature, and system settings. It is amazing;
“It’s bulletproof. The face plate is actually made from bulletproof polycarbonate material so it won’t shatter if dropped, and the housing is aluminum, light but very strong.”
It is a brilliant soft light, as one lamp covered a 10 by 10-foot wall evenly, from a distance of approximately 7 to 10 feet. A subject walking through that space was evenly lit almost perfectly from end to end with no hotspots. Running off a full battery for nearly three hours, allowed me to James Bond this light into all kinds of odd places, hence it proves to be strong and light enough for toss-and-tumble travel gigs, and efficient enough to want to take all that way. It’s also smart and sexy enough to light a car in studio
