The Mosaic Solo Interview Lighting Kit by Bowens is a lightweight and compact LED light source. It contains 72 daylight-balanced LEDs which create a soft light for accurate skin tones. It is designed to work well for interviews and video cameras as well as portrait and product photography with a DSLR. It has a hotshoe mount adapter but also be used mounted off-camera or hand-held. There are 2 screw mount sockets so the light may be mounted either horizontal or vertical. It has a wide format design giving a good spread of light for the typical 16:9 framing.
The light intensity can be adjusted from very soft to very bright, and the kit contains two filters – an Opal diffuser and a Tungsten filter – that slide into a side slot and across the light panel.
It is lightweight – just under 16 ounces with 8 AA batteries. Though for the ladies, I found the battery compartment difficult to open without breaking a nail – be sure to use a tool to open the cover. It can also be powered by an AC adapter or from the supplied D-Tap power cable.
