Digital Camera World Verdict

Available as a standalone LED monolight that runs on AC mains or its own rechargeable battery pack, the Interfit Badger Beam is also available in twin-head kits that feature options of barndoors, pop-up softboxes or umbrellas, complete with lighting stands and carrying cases. Unlike most LED constant lamps, the heads enable the use of wide-ranging monolight modifiers, via standard a Bowens S-type mounting plate. It’s a useful, versatile and good-value lighting solution for use at home or on location.

The Interfit Badger Beam 60W AC/DC LED Monolight is Interfit’s new kid on the block, taking its styling cues from the popular battery-powered Honey Badger Unleashed 250Ws HSS TTL portable flash head. Unlike its sibling flash head, however, the LED monolight can be powered directly from the mains, instead of just from its battery pack, and features a cooling fan which runs constantly.
