Westcott Ice Light 2 Giveaway

By Hanssie on March 1st 2015

The Westcott Icelight made waves when it first entered the market. With its versatility to wield light with ease and panache, in the form of a light saber-ish device, how could it not? Now, Westcott has now announced the Ice Light 2. This second-generation light source still has the ultra-portable and lightweight design that photographers everywhere love, but now with an array of improvements, including a more powerful output and easier-to-use features.

We are giving one away…read on to enter.


Icelight 2 Specs

  • 1740 Lumen daylight-balanced output (50% power increase from version 1)
  • 5500 Kelvin output will also have an increased CRI of 96 (which will produce even more true-to-life still and motion images)
  • More effortless controls, including a digital display, power on/off button, and output slider
  • Light are dimmable in increments of 10, from 5% to 100% output
  • Built-in bluetooth technology (This new feature came along with Westcott’s new plan to develop an app for their products, which will allow photographers and filmmakers to control their light source’s remotely from their smartphones and tablets).

Another huge improvement in this version of the Ice Light is its lithium ion battery technology. This battery will now be removable, giving photographers the ability to charge this power source outside of the unit and purchase multiple batteries for prolonged use. This battery features the same 60+ minute run-time with a charging time of 2 hours.

    P. S. How do I get the 10 bonus entries for sharing on social media? I tweeted using the link, and shared on Facebook but the email icon led me to a broken link and the entry page still says “don’t lose your chance to earn up to 10 bonus entries!” What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    Just ordered 2 Icelight V2s. Improvements made it a worthwhile investment. Hope to do a review when it arrives from back order in 14 days.

    The idea that the new Light gives 50% light is quite amazing and now really makes the investment worth while.

    I feel like the Jedi Council would take mine away. Or would they train me in the ways of the Force? Okay, I’m in.

    God I want two of these, I was waiting to save up for the Gen 1 Ice Lights, and I’m glad I waited.

    I like the original however I hope the build quality on the V2 is better. The handle feels like it is going to separate down the seam. There are other similar lights with the ability to control color temperature for half the cost out there right now (Genaray SpectroLED SP-LR Light). Not sure how they compare head to head since I don’t own one of those, but for half the cost may be worth looking into.
