Autumn has fallen, days are shortening and it is almost time to change the clocks back an hour. By our watch that also means it’s time to think about lighting solutions for on-set filming and on the go. With the need for being portable and to work in a variety of locations, it is important to be in the know of lighting solutions that are both compact and easy to carry set-to-set. With this in mind, here are 4 light fixtures that will come in handy this Autumn.
LitraPro by Litra
Dubbed as the world’s first full spectrum bi-colour adventure light for video and photo. The LitraPro is a pro version of the hugely popular LitraTorch with more advanced specs. It has a max output of 1200 lumens giving off a high-quality and crisp light stream. Additionally, it comes with 95 CRI and a colour temperature range of 3000K to 6000K. This combined with a weight of 6 ounces and 40 minutes of battery life makes it a great companion for video-journalists & wedding videographers.
RollLite by Fomex
Fomex’s RollLite LED Panels are a versatile, bi-colour light for any location. They are durable, waterproof and very flexible lights that work where conventional light fixtures don’t fit. RollLite’s LED units emit high quality light of 96 CRI and 98 TCLI. Beam angle is 120 °. Colour temperature varies from 2700K to 6500K. One of its big advantages is how easy it is to repair. The Light panel is made up of individual LED modules that can be replaced independently from one another. Not having to replace the whole fixture when one unit does happen to break makes it a very price-effective investment!
Gemini 1×1 Soft by Litepanels
Combining daylight, tungsten and red-green-blue LEDs, the Gemini 1×1 Soft is the more compact version of the Gemini 2×1. The Gemini 1×1 is a soft 1×1 RGBWW panel light featuring adjustable colour temperature of 2700K to 10000K. You also have the choice of 4 different lighting modes and 6 user-defined presets.
