Ikan Piatto Accent Lights: Hands-On Review


In the following video, Mia McCormick, of KelbyOne media, uses the iKan Piatto lights to illustrate a variety of lighting techniques. She explains accent lighting, and goes on to demonstrate with an appropriate Piatto light fixture. McCormick takes the time to illustrate how to bring three-dimensionality to your footage by careful use of Piatto lights, to add accents and shape. During the review, she goes over the technical specs and useful features of the light units, including their size, mounting options, and dimming function. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com




I have the PL90, and absolutely love the light output for rim and accent modes.  But can't use it in the field yet because I can't figure out the battery power configuration.  The instructions are vague, to say the least, and I'm not sure I have the right battery for it anyway.  Using a Canon D5MkIII battery, I could not get it to fit any of the included adaptors.  Help!  Thanks.

The BP2-C Canon 900 DV Battery Plate that came included with the PL-90 is not compatible with the Canon LP-E6 battery used in the 5D Mark III. You would need a Canon 900 type battery, you can find compatible options here: http://bhpho.to/1WeCDPd
