Today I used my new LED 312AS Bi-colour light from H Preston Media. I was interviewing a father of a child who has type one diabetes and I used the new light to great effect.

I had been looking for a smaller Bi-colour LED light for my highlights and the LED 312AS fits the bill.

The light comes with a magnetic diffuser, a bag, 2 NP-F570 type Lion batteries, double battery charger, mains adapter, car adapter and hot shoe adapter for camcorder mounting.

This compact flicker free LED light is now part of my lighting kit, the addition of a DC input is very welcome as most lights of this size use battery only which can be a pain if the light is being used for products shots.

This is version two and the build quality is very good indeed and comes with it’s own zip protective case, the LED 312AS costs £169 from H Preston Media.

You will get a fiver off the light if you mention you saw this review up until the end of October 2012.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. I’ve been using these since March. They make great fill and a reasonable rim light if close enough.
    The variable colour temp is essential too.
    I’ve found that the daylight bulbs are way above 5600k. That means that general daylight fill matching sunlight lets you use both sets of LEDs. This results in more output and probably a higher CRI.
    There’s a 508 LED version now as well, but it’s more than double the price. I’m using a £5 1/4” threaded mounting bar to put two units on one stand. I angle the light by using it on a really strong metal flash umbrella adaptor.
    Fab kit!
