At last month’s Band Pro Open House, we stopped to talk with our old friends at Ikan. Ikan’s Barry Garcia was on hand to give us a rundown of their wide variety of lights they had on display at the show.
Ikan’s main display were their Piatto line of lights, accent lighting that works great for creating eyelight. They come in several sizes, including 6″ diameter (PL60), 9″ diameter (PL90), 7″ x 4″ (PL74), and a 10″ x 3″ (PL103), with different battery plate options for Canon, Panasonic and Sony batteries.
The cool thing about the Piatto Lights are the readout on the back, where you can see the color temperature and brightness level, which can be adjusted anywhere from 10% to 100%. The lights come with standard 1/4-20 mounts, and gel clips around the edge.
The lights are all available now, and prices range from $249 to $379, with $249 for the PL74, $279 for the PL103, $279 for the PL60, and $379 for the PL90.
