The flashlight progresses fast in recent years. Especially the large flashlight section, the operating system with original small flashlights has been continuously introduced and the wireless receiver is equipped, so that the remote control can be achieved. There are many choices in choosing flashlight. People can choose the lights they need according to their individual needs. As to the ways of choosing, you can refer to weblogunderstanding and choice of flashlights.(Figure/ Words: Kay)

The author has used many different flashlights. In recent photography, the outdoor photography light of VISICO5 (hereinafter abbreviated as V5) was used. VISICO5 is a portable large outdoor photography light, and many subjects were shot during the testing period, such as outdoor portrait, pet, baby or jumping action etc., at the same time, tests were carried out with different machine bodies, and how does it perform? Keep it in suspense, and the characteristics of V5 outdoor photography light will be introduced as follows:

 

High-speed freezing capability

The light sources for photography usage can be divided into sustained light source and instant light source according to the properties of the light. There are many kinds of sustained light sources, such as sunlight and bulb. Lightning and flashlight are instant light source. As the characteristics of the lights are different, so their performances in photography are also different. For simple still life photography, sustained light or instant light can be used, so as long as controlling properly, it is possible to take good photos. If you understand camera imaging principle and the characteristics of instant light source, it's easier to create good works in specific photography themes.

 

Long press MODE button, F1page will be displayed, and then choose ONorOFFby +or-button: choosing "ON" is constant color temperature mode and the color temperature will be fixed on 5500k; choosing OFFis high-speed mode, and the flashlight duration is extremely fast.

 

-Jumping-

During the period of using V5, it is found that, in addition to its complete function, the flashlight duration is extremely fast. As every photographer knows, in addition to high-speed shutter, the flashlight of instant light can be used to make people in mid-air coagulate. And the photography effect of V5 is excellent.

Local amplify the above figure 100%. Although the shutter is only 1/80s, it can be found that the sustained time of the flashlight is fast enough to coagulate the action in the jump after magnification review. 


The above figure is the shooting situation photo.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo; V5 is a large flashlight that can be used anywhere, and of course, we can go outside to jump.

-Baby & Pet

In addition to shoot jump, freezing rate can also be applied to shoot the uncontrolled themes, such as babies and pets.

As baby is not mature yet, so flashlight should not directly irradiate. Turn the flashlight to the ceiling and make the flashlight diffuse to illuminate the whole living room. At this time, family members only need to tease the baby and pay attention to the emotion and action of the baby, and there is not need to worry about the shake produced by light shortage.

Using coagulation rate can also shoot night scene portrait; slow shutter has shock proof effect.

Abundant exposure modes

Besides the manual M mode like other large flashlights, V5 has TTL mode that can be selected. Both TTL and M are flashlight exposure modes. M mode manually controls the output of the flashlight by photography, while TTL gives output power after calculation by combining camera photometric system and matching with the camera exposure value, which is a flash exposure system similar to Autofunction. V5 TIL Mode is compatible with Canon and Nikon systems. In actual use, different light control lampshades can be loaded; if standard reflector is used, it will be fairly accurate in most environments; as long as positive and negative flash exposure compensation can be taken, it is possible to get enough irradiation distance.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo. If you are not familiar with the flash light, you can first use TTL mode, with light control tool and proper compensation, the light can be compensated to be perfect.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo. Under V5 mode, light ratio can be used to control flashlight output. The light ration of the two lights is 8:1.

When shooting the static delicious food, the irradiation distance is fixed, and M mode is of course the good choice.

In addition to TTL and M modes, V5 also provides Multi strobe mode. This mode is more restricted to use, but it can take a continuous action in the same picture in one shutter.

 

Ratio control

The function of ratio-controlled flashlight is almost the basic equipment of new flashlights. Former old flashlight should be operated in lamp holder, which is relatively inconvenient to use outdoor. In terms of V5, wireless receiver is equipped in. As long as using VC-818TX remote control, you can operate V5and trigger flash directly.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo. It is very convenient to take photos on coast with V5. In a terrain that is difficult to move back and forth, you can directly remote control the flashlight mode or the output size of V5 after setting up the flashlight.

Group function

With group remote control function, you can separately control different flashlights in the same channel without mutual interference. V5 provides three groups of A, B and C. Set the lights with different output controls into any group of A, B or C, then it is possible to trigger different groups of flashlights and control them separately. The advantage is that, as long as the lights are set up, you can use VC-818TX to achieve remote control.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo. Turn on two sets of lights separately in the inside and outside of the curtain. One group is creating effect on transparent curtain and the backside, and another group is illuminating the people.

The above figure is the shooting situation photo. Obviously it is night, but the atmosphere must be changed into daytime by flashlight. Set up a light outside the window, and try to crate sunlight during the daytime; and another light is set indoors to supplement light for the shadow produced by outdoor light.

 

High-speed synchronization

The flashlight is synchronized with the shutter curtain. In normal conditions, there is limitation of the maximum flashlight synchronization speed, which varies according to the types of machine(1/1601/250s).

Figure A: Backlighting, without the use of flashlight, normal background, people is too dark.

In the above photography situation photo, the background can be effectively softened through relatively larger aperture. At the same time, matching with the different speed flashlights, the faster shutter speed can be used to control background exposure value and avoid excessive exposure.

Use experience

After using V5 for a period, it is found that the flashlight of V5 has extremely good coagulation effect. It is very convenient for shooting themes requiring speed. And it is compatible with the original system. The TTL model is pretty accurate. Even with different light-control lampshades, accurate light supplement can be achieved as long as with timely flash compensation. In addition, V5 also supports flashlight high-speed synchronization and group functions. During photography, free creation can be enjoyed without limitation. After the battery full charged, the maximum output is about 500 times, which is able to load most of the single outdoor photography work. Summarizing the above characteristics, V5 is worth recommending to photography fans.
