Backscatter MW-4300 Video Light
Film your next underwater adventure using this Backscatter MW-4300 Video Light together with your camera or video setup!
The 4300-lumen wide beam is great for compact camera shooters looking for a small compact light that has a bright output for wide angle video.
The 1400-lumen macro beam has been tailor-made for macro video shooters for all levels, from GoPro and compact all the way to full-frame SLR and cinema.
Photographers looking for a focus light have plenty of power, plus a red mode for night time to avoid spooking critters. Thus, avoiding “the swarmies” from congregating all over your light and ruining the shot.
Divemasters and guides will love the Alert and Beacon modes to get a diver’s attention and to mark off locations on a night dive.
1400-Lumen Spot Beam Tailored Specifically for Macro Shooting
The spot beam on the Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light was made specifically with macro shooters in mind. The tight, narrow beam with a hard edge has a beam pattern that will light up the subject without light spilling over into other unwanted areas of the shot. To get even tighter beam patterns, pair the Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light with the Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1. Because macro mode is so bright, it has 5 power level settings to provide more granular control of the light output.
For compact camera users, the light is bright enough to be used in place of a strobe for stills photography. For a pro-level macro shooter, this is all the light you’ll ever need for macro video.
A Video Light Built For Snooting
Snooting has been very popular for photography in the past few years. It’s a great way to isolate a macro subject that usually blends into its environment and make it stand out and add more dramatic lighting. Snooting used to be limited to still photography. No more. The Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light has a spot beam designed specifically for the macro video shooter. This has been hard for video applications as most lights don’t have snooting capability, aren’t bright enough with a snoot, or if it is bright enough, are way too large to be practical for macro shooting.
The macro capability is second to none with a tightly focused beam made for macro with a warmer colour temperature to make macro subjects pop. When the macro beam isn’t tight enough, add on the Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1 for even more flexibility. The light is bright enough to shoot stopped down apertures for more depth of field and dark backgrounds to isolate subjects.
Use the Backscatter Colour Filter System to get more creative with video. If you already own a Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1, all of the accessories will fit with the Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light.
