How to use them in video studios?

In general, you can adopt a one-, two-, or three-point lighting setup to arrange lighting for video studio. But before that, you need to mount them on stands, power them properly, go to setting to adjust them to the lighting you want and use modifiers or other accessories to assist in setup. Here are some tips you can follow when you use COLBOR studio lights to carry on the aforementioned steps.

Mount the light on a light stand, tripod, etc. and position it in a right place

Mount COLBOR CL60 best studio light for video on a tripod

If you choose the CL60 or CL100X, you can follow the steps below:

  • Slide the supplied light base into the chute
  • Adjust it to the proper place you want
  • Fix the base by tightening the knob
  • Mount it on a stand and tighten the knob to secure it in place
  • Loosen the angle grip to adjust the CL60 or CL100X to any angle you want

If you purchase the CL220, the mounting steps are a bit different:

  • Completely loosen the screw on the bracket
  • Mount it on a stand
  • Tighten the screw to fix it
  • Loosen the angle grip to adjust it to any angle you want

Choose between DC power and external battery to power lights for video studio

The three studio lights mentioned above can be powered by DC power with the supplied power adapter or receive power from V mount battery. You can choose either power supply that is suitable for your shooting.

If you choose DC power

Use power adapter and power cord to connect the light to the socket. You can hang the CL220 power adapter on the stand to avoid pulling the cord. Ensure that you use the power adapter supplied in the package, or it is likely to damage the fixture.

If you choose external battery

CL60: Fix COLBOR VM2 on it, install a V mount battery on the VM2, and then connect the battery to power the CL60 via Type-C port. If you want to use NP-F batteries, a VM2 and a VAP1 are needed for this setup.

CL100X: Use VM2 as mentioned above to power it with a V mount battery.

CL220: Slide the supplied NATO extension bar into CL220’s BATO groove. Install the VM3 on it for mounting a V mount battery. Connect it to power the CL220 with D-tap to XLR power cable. Pay attention that a V mount battery supporting 14.4-16.8V discharge allows the CL220 to work at half of the maximum output.

Use onboard buttons or App to set studio lighting for YouTube videos

All three lights for video studio can be adjusted by using the buttons, wheels/knobs on the body to adjust the brightness, color temperature, and light effect. A short press on the wheel/knob allows you to switch between the set brightness, color temperature. You can also control it through the app. Check the video below to learn how to use the COLBOR Studio App to make lighting adjustments.

Use modifiers to shape and direct lighting for video studio

Modifier adaptability is crucial for perfect video lighting. Follow the tips below to shape and direct your lighting.

CL60 & CL100X: Install the supplied Bowens-mount adapter to the light head, and it will be ready to accept most of the Bowens-mount modifiers. If you want to use an umbrella on it, the COLBOR UMBR is needed.

CL220: It is designed with a Bowens mount without the need for an adapter. You can directly use modifiers on it. In addition, there is an umbrella hole in the lamp base. Just loosen the screw, insert the umbrella handle, tighten the screw, and you can use the umbrella to create soft illumination.
