Flicker-free LEDs are used in the design of this device to keep the Key Light Mini cool while the edge-lit architecture and multiple layers of diffusion provide ultra-soft indirect illumination. You won’t be blinded by light as The Weeknd or Bruce Springsteen might say, but your subject will certainly be well lit.
The Key Light Mini’s bright 800 lumen (total visible light emitted) LED output is fully adjustable using its unique app and on-board controls. The light guide plate diffuses light evenly across the panel, with a color range of 2900-7000k changing tones from sunset amber to arctic blue.
The Key Light Mini has multiple intricate layers and design features, a translucent grid panel splits the light into millions of beams, while the double-layered diffuser and opal glass blends these beams together, resulting in transparent photon transmission light that is indirect and easy on the eyes.
The Elgato Workshop video below explains all the key details you need to know about its new product, the Key Light Mini, from Wifi settings to how to adjust brightness and color settings. The video also explains how the control center works with the Key Light Mini to allow users to wirelessly control light output and other adjustable features such as remote power saving.
The Key Light Mini is multi-device compatible and can be controlled with the Elgato Stream Deck device and other app interfaces. Controlling your lighting setup remotely and discreetly can be very handy in situations where you can’t get up and move, mid-game streamers for example. However, the video does not clarify whether multiple Key Light Minis can be controlled by the app at the same time, when using a multi-Key-light setup or the larger Elgato Key Light predecessor.
With a standard mounting thread and a rechargeable mains battery, the Key Light Mini is intended for rural and middle of nowhere filming and photography locations. The Key Light Mini can also be a great desktop companion and mount to your monitor so you can shine and look your best on those office zoom meetings (monitor stand not included).
It seems like this handy little device has limitless potential and uses in our daily lives and you’d be suspicious not to have one! Whether you’re streaming, working on a remote shoot, or just need a reading light to help you study, the Key Light Mini is handy for any profession. You can pick one up for $99.99 / £89.99 / AU$140.
