The CAME-TV Boltzen 150W Fresnel Focusable LED Bi-Color is an affordable, mid-sized LED Fresnel that looks to be very suitable for one-man bands and small crews.

Over the last few years, we have seen mid-sized LED Fresnel fixtures starting to become more prevalent in the market. Typically, Fresnel LED fixtures have either been small and compact or large and heavy. The CAME-TV 150W Fresnel Focusable LED Bi-Color has been designed to fill that gap where you need something more powerful than a small fixture, but you don’t want to have to carry around a large light.

CAME-TV has been making the Boltzen range of LED Fresnel fixtures for quite some time now, and the 150W Fresnel Focusable LED Bi-Color is essentially a bi-color version of the existing daylight only 150W Boltzen

A mid-sized LED Fresnel is well suited for use by traveling shooters and one man operators who want a light that has a fairly wide beam spread for lighting up larger areas, but also the versatility to have something that can be spotted up. It weighs in at 4.3kg (9.48 lb) with the yolk attached. While it is not super small, it isn’t going to take up too much space in a bag.

The beam angle is adjustable from 38 to 90 degrees. If you want to further control the spill you can use the included barn doors.

Quite a few LED lights on the market, including the CAME-TV Boltzen 150W Fresnel, are using COB technology. COB stands for “Chip On Board” where multiple LED chips are packaged together as one lighting module. The advantage of COB LEDs being multi-chip packaged is that the light-emitting area of a COB LED can contain many times more light sources in the same area that standard LEDs could occupy. This results in a greatly increased lumen output per square inch.

The biggest problem with COB LED lights is that unless you diffuse them they are very bright to look at and unsuitable for directly lighting talent.
