Product Highlights
  • Color Temperature From 2800-6500K
  • 0-100% Dimming

The ARRI CASTER Series offers an LED array with a unique optical design which yields high output combined with outstanding control options at an affordable price.

This Arri LoCaster LED Panel with Stirrup is designed for location use in video, film or TV production scenarios. Dimming function (0-100%) and color temperature control from 2800-6500K can be controlled independently with simple knobs on the body of the LED panel itself.

A 3/8" (9.5 mm) female thread permits mounting the luminaire to the included Arri Caster Stirrup which provides swiveling movement and a 5/8" (16mm) receiver in a yoke-like construction. Safety features include Auto Power Off to protect LEDs from heat due to overvoltage. Accessories include a 2-leaf barndoor, gel frame and a light intensifier that doubles the luminous output of the panel.

The LoCaster Power Supply (sold separately) accepts input voltages from 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz and outputs 24VDC. Extremely small and lightweight, it powers a single LoCaster panel. An optional NiMH Battery Pack is also available, providing 2 hours of DC power for a single LoCaster panel.

Tunable white light from tungsten to daylight from 2800K-6500K.
CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 90 renders colors more vivid on film or digital media.
Absolute color temperature and intensity stability due to Arri True Match LED Technology.

    Comments about Arri LoCaster LED Panel with Stirrup:

    I own a bunch of other lights, including Arri and I used the Locaster in documentary film work, interview set-ups, live situations. It works great, packs small, weighs little and travels well by plane. The green correction is a great plus for matching ambient neon light and then correcting in-camera. Very sturdy and versatile build. The daylight temperature setting is quite clean, it gets greener as you veer towards the 3200K area. I then needed to use a minusgreen gel to bring it back into correctable range.
    The actual power of the light is about half of what one gets with a Divalite fixture, for example, packed in one sixth of the size.
    To me it means that I need to diffuse it if used as a key light (such as with a silk), and then I use it full power in an interior daylight setting.
    As a backlight or more directional light it works quite well, especially in a daylight setting.
    I use a Canon C300 so I work with low light levels, so the relatively modest punch of the unit is not a problem. Don't expect the power or the focusability of a 575 HMI, but about one third of that.
    Keep in mind that my estimates here are just approximate. I haven't had the time for precise tests yet.

      Comments about Arri LoCaster LED Panel with Stirrup:

      I use this light mainly for interviews and stand-ups on location.

      It has a unique ability to "dial-in" a wide range of color temp. and also green/magenta.

      I have found that the CRI of 90 is pretty accurate, it does a good job keeping skintones vibrant.

      The beam quality is very nice, and the barndoors are very effective at cutting the light, more so than LED-Panel type units. The intensifier accessory does double the light output and narrow the beam. It folds flat, but it is still larger than most of my travel cases and is hard to pack.

      The output is good as a key for interior mixed-lighting situations, and using the intensifier it can be used as fill with daylight-interiors.

      In conclusion, its great when used as a quick-setup key light, directly on a subject. I haven't made a direct comparison but I would say it is comparable to other 1x1 style lights in output- when you subtract any output lost to correction gels.

      Also, its incredibly well made. Everything is tight and well finished, the knobs are safely recessed and have a lot of drag that allows for incredibly fine adjustments.

      I have also been very happy with the performance of their service dept. in the past, and have no doubt they stand firmly behind the equipment they make.
