At this year’s NAB Show in Vegas, Ikan introduced its newest addition to their on camera LED lights lineup – the ikan Onyx. With the Onyx, ikan are aiming to provide professional photographers, videographers, and cinematographers with high quality LED lighting at an affordable price. The Onyx lights are also quite affordable starting at just $100. Built out of aluminium, the ikan Onyx is both durable and lightweight.
