Recently, Switronix announced a brand new TorchLED light. The new Bolt 220 is the successor to the latest version of the TorchLED that we found (and continue to still do so) to be quite good as an on-camera fill light. The new 220 has a knob for daylight, tungsten, and brightness. In previous versions, there were two knobs that controlled both daylight/brightness and tungsten/brightness. The company is claiming that the new product is 10% lighter and 40% more power efficient than the previous model.
The Bolt 220 runs on Sony L style batteries, has a 1/4 20 swivel shoe, and will set you back for $379. That’s a tad pricey, but we will have the final word in our upcoming full review.
