New Litepanelsâ„¢ Micro LED Light for Compact Camcorders

Publish date:

The new Litepanels Micro is the first fully professional compact LED light made for production that runs off standard AA batteries. Created in response to the overwhelming popularity of the MiniPlus, now a staple of television, broadcast news and cinema production worldwide, the Micro harnesses the company’s ultra-efficient LED technology in an extremely lightweight and cost-effective package. Ideal for DV camcorder users, it mounts unobtrusively on top of the camera to provide soft, directional lighting. This compact, daylight-balanced camera light also functions as an exceptional eyelight, filling in the shadows on a subject’s face and bringing the eyes to life. Weighing less than 4 oz. (.11kg) and measuring 3.3�x 3.3� x 1.5� (83.8mm x 83.8mm x 38.1mm), Litepanels Micro produces 1.5 hours of continuous output from four on-board AA batteries (either standard or rechargeable). Or power can be supplied through a convenient 4-14V input jack located on the back of the unit. The Litepanels Micro housing has a unique, integrated hot shoe adapter with an adjustable tilt mechanism to allow for multiple mounting configurations. An integrated on/off/dimmer dial conveniently facilitates smooth and instant 100%-0 dimming. The unit also features a flip-down filterholder for use with the system’s color/diffusion gel filters. Three filters are included: soft diffusion, 3200° tungsten conversion, and 1/4 warming (CTO). MSRP (batteries included) is $349.
