Cineo Matchbox: Bought 3 of them for my Mercedes Sprinter Photography Adventure Van, Really Right Stuff BH-25 Attaches Them Almost Anywhere

See shootout versus Dracast.

Back in August/September, I bought a total of 3 Cineo Matchbox units and with the first demo unit sent to me by Cineo, a total of 4. They are currently on sale at $130 off for about $333.

I love the Matchbox units inside my —the light quality is fantastic, which I use mostly for interior lighting—no harshness or exposed LEDs, daylight quality, wide beam spread... that sort of thing just has a wonderful feel. I’d suggest one for a home office or any similar situation also.

I tend to prefer using them at night with the 3200°K panel, but a 5600°K is also included for daylight matched color. There are other color temperatures panels also (they just slide out/in in an instant by unlatching a side lever).

The Sony NPF battery option* attaches easily and means I can get the light anywhere I want to (without cords) for photographic needs or anything else. They have AC power adapters included, but also take 6V to 24V (such as with the optional 12V DC cigarette lighter plug), or AC power.

Color matching examples

The used two Matchbox units along with natural daylight. It was a tough shot to light but the color matching was/is superb.

The night-time star-trail Sprinter van shot on this page used a Matchbox unit when I had only one unit, and was constrained by cord length.

Attaching to the van interior

I have not yet figured out how to attach the Matchbox units when the van interior is finished off (which hides the steel sides/roof) and including overhead cabinets, but I love that light quality, so I will solve that design/install issue. Right now I bolted on some powerful magnets to the base of , which then sticks to the roof or wall of the van interior* (except over very rough roads, unplug and stow). The BH-25 is a great little head. I use the Screw-Knob Compact clamp version (smaller form factor on top).
