Cineo Matchbox: Bought a Pair of them for my Mercedes Sprinter Photography Adventure Van

Get Cineo Matchbox LED at B&H Photo.

See updated 2017-11-22 post...

The light quality from the Cineo Matchbox is second to none: 160° spread and none of that harsh LED bulb problem because the Matchbox uses remote phosphor technology. Plus the color rendering index is 98 (at 3200°K).

  • Remote Phosphor Technology
  • CRI: 98 at 3200K / 94 at 5600K
  • TLCI: 99 at 3200K / 97 at 5600K
  • 315 lux / 30.5 fc at 3' and 3200K 362 lux / 37.5 fc at 3' and 5600K
  • Beam Angle: 160° Local and DMX Dimming from 0-100%
  • Weather-Resistant Construction
  • 3.25 x 5.25 x 1.5" Panel
  • 1/4"-20 Thread on Base for Mounting

I wanted top quality interior lighting in my Mercedes Sprinter Photography Adventure Van, and while I have not quite figured out the best way to mount the Matchbox lights, the $334 price ($133 off) was too good to pass up. They run off 12V power (6V to 24V actually), so power is not an issue using vehicle wiring and no wasteful DC-AC-DC needed—just direct DC power.

Update: the discount is back as of 2017-09-02: $129 / 27% off for a price of $334.
