And speaking of control, The MiniPlus dims from 100 - 0% with minimal color shift. An optional 6' dimming module with 2 10' extensions is available for remote dimming.

Other options include a snap-in 12V battery that powers the light for up to 2 hours. A convenient "fuel gauge" indicator lets you know when to swap batteries. The light is alternately runs on a universal AC power supply / charger.

The kit includes a conversion gel kit to balance your daylight MiniPlus with tungsten sources, as well as a ball head for flexible positioning on-camera and a D-Tap power cable.

About Litepanels:

Litepanels was at the vanguard of a lighting revolution which resulted in innovative fixtures which are used widely in broadcast, Pro A/V, on film sets and for news gathering applications. The benefits of using a Litepanels LED are many. The low-profile fixtures made of robust materials are virtually heat-free, allowing users to squeeze a light into tight places without harming the talent in front of the camera. Each LED in the fixture's array is actually a tiny lens which can be constructed to yield a flood or spot beam of light (sometimes both) and a variety of color temperatures.

Litepanels LEDs are HD friendly, meaning that they provide a soft but crisp quality of light without revealing harsh surface details on subjects, which would be made apparent by HD's incredible sharpness.

Litepanels products are a deep shade of green, that is, extremely eco-friendly. The LED source typically lasts up to 50,000 hours, is virtually maintenance-free and runs on 5% of the power it takes for traditional fixtures. That means less air-conditioning on sets, less wattage consumed and no lamp replacement cost. That is one very light carbon footprint!

Highly Controllable
Litepanels MiniPlus heads feature an output control knob for instant dimming from 100 - 0%, with minimal color shift. Output is fully flicker-free and heat-free, and remains consistent, even as the battery voltage goes down. For additional control, units are available with pre-cut interchangeable conversion and diffusion gels that handily slip into an integral frame. Gels are supplied in 6 or 12 piece sets customized for every MiniPlus Camera Lite Kit, One-Lite, or Dual-Lite package. These long-life filters can also be purchased separately, in sets, or individually.
Not Power Hungry
Litepanels MiniPlus is three times more efficient than a conventional tungsten camera light. And, it's easy to handle because it's virtually heat-free. The system offers an efficient snap-on NiMH 2+ hour battery pack. A convenient 5-step bar graph fuel gauge and improved charge indicator displays charging status and remaining battery power when the light is in use.
MiniPlus 5600K Spot Photometrics
  • Distance: 2' / 0.6 m = 160 footcandles / 1,700 lux
  • Distance: 4' / 1.2 m = 72 footcandles / 775 lux
  • Distance: 6' / 1.8 m = 28 footcandles / 280 lux
  • Mounting Options
    The base plate allows the MiniPlus to be fully free standing, with easy pan and tilt adjustment. The Deluxe Detachable Ball Mount with integrated hot shoe allows for multiple configurations-on the base plate, camera hot shoe, or with other types of mounting hardware.
    Remote Dimming Module
    By using Litepanels' optional Remote Dimming Module, operators can override the MiniPlus' on-board dimmer at distances up to 25', an invaluable capability when the situation calls for adjustments in intensity made away from the light fixture itself.
    Ready to Go - Optional Kits
    Litepanels MiniPlus is available in several configurations to suit individual requirements. Options range from the Camera Lite Kit, to single or dual Lite packages that feature virtually everything you'll need in a handy case: heads, batteries, power adapters, cables, gel kits, and power adapter plugs for worldwide compatibility. The MiniPlus DV Lite Kit comes with a Sony, Panasonic or Canon DV adapter plate.
    Elegant Design
    The Litepanels MiniPlus head features a smart rectangular silhouette, conveniently suited to widescreen format. Measuring just 6.75 x 2.25 x 1.25" (175 x 55 x 30 mm), the head weighs only 9.6 ounces (0.36 kg). With its black anodized finish and sleek design, the housing blends in with modern desktops. In fact, it is so unobtrusive that it is often used on desktops in-frame. But looks aren't everything. Built for long life, the system is protected by a tough cast aluminum housing.

    Comments about Litepanels MiniPlus 5600K Daylight Camera Lite Kit (1 Spot):

    I can only comment when using with the litepanels battery:

    I'm not sure if the design of litepanel is at fault or the design of the battery or perhaps I have a bad unit but dimming while using the battery causes a very noticeable flicker which makes dimming while using the battery unacceptable. The great thing about the litepanel 1x1 I've used is that you can dim while the subject moves closer to the light and therefore maintain exposure...no flicker.

    Maybe the dimmer switch (more additional money!) works better.

    If you do buy the battery you need to know that you'll require the jumper between the battery and the litepanel to power it and that jumper for some reason is not included with the battery. Also not included is an A/C charger for the battery.

    The litepanel mini seems like it's designed to last...good quality, solid, not too heavy unless you're using the battery.

    It does seem to me that there must be a better way to spend money on lighting. I'm giving it 4 stars but I would have a hard time recommending it because of the cost unless its limited use works perfectly for your workflow.
