Rosco's LitePad is a groundbreaking LED light source for videographers, photographers and filmmakers who need a small, lightweight unit with a variety of mounting options that can light areas where standard light sources simply won't fit.

This Rosco LitePad Quick Kit AX (Daylight) contains five 5800K rectangular Litepad Axioms from 3 x 6 - 12 x 12" as well as a 3" circular HO+ LitePad. This pared down kit is built on the core of Rosco's most comprehensive kits but with less accessories. The kit includes 4 transformers as well as battery cables to power the LitePads. A dimmer, mounting pins and car adapter are included with a hard, wheeled case to house the whole kit.

The LitePad Axiom is Rosco's next generation panel which features a rugged aluminum and steel housing with an integrated gel slot and provision for attachment of Axiom series arms, brackets and adapters via 1/4"-20 bolt or baby pin for maximum flexibility. Other mounting options include touch fasteners and gaffers tape for the smaller units which measure 3 x 6" - 12 x 12 " and weigh in at just 0.8 - 3.95 lb. Even the 24 x 24" panel weighs only 13.7 lb. The 12V DC connector is now removable to facilitate packing and minimize cord damage and downtime. Lamp life is estimated at 60,000 hours making the LitePad virtually maintenance-free. The Litepad Axiom is available in daylight (5800K) or tungsten (3800K) balance.

The LitePad HO+ has similar performance specs as the Axiom but minus the metal frame making it even thinner and lighter. Every HO+ is only 0.37" thick and weighs in at 0.10 lb (3" circle) to 8.3 lb for the 20 x 24" model.

Rugged Design
LitePad Axiom's housing is constructed from steel and aluminum making it the strongest, most durable LitePad available. The metal housing also allows for the attachment of different mounting hardware and filters directly to the LitePad. Inside of every LitePad Axiom is a LitePad HO+, which means you get all of the benefits of the HO+ product line.
Versatile Mounting
With LitePad Axiom's quick-release mounting system, it is now possible to change out the mounting option in just a few seconds. Whether it is a 1/4"-20 bolt, a baby pin or even a wall plate, it only takes a moment for a solid connection.
Interior Connector
LitePad's new interior connector eliminates the traditional wire, which had the potential to be pulled out during use. Based on user feedback, this feature was introduced to make the LitePad more rugged and easier to use.
Daylight / Tungsten
LitePad is available in two color temperatures, daylight (approx. 5800K) and tungsten (approx. 3800K). With tungsten and daylight LitePads, which have equal light output, there is no need to color correct your LitePad, losing valuable light intensity. LitePad's minimum green content allows for high color rendering and great film and digital photography.
LitePad HO+: Slim Profile
LitePad HO+ is only one third of an inch (8 mm) thick, making it one of the thinnest light fixtures in the world. Its slim profile allows the LitePad to be placed and even hidden in areas that a conventional light fixture could not fit. No thicker than a pad of paper, LitePads can easily fit into a back pack or messenger bag for easy transportation.
Brightness
LitePad HO+ offers the brightest LitePad to date. With LEDs on all four edges of all standard sizes, LitePad HO+ gives you the maximum output in the smallest of spaces.
Lightweight
Weighing significantly less than a conventional light source, the LitePad HO+ is capable of being mounted in many different ways and places. Whether it be Rosco's mounting brackets, touch fasteners, or even rubber bands, LitePad's low weight makes it incredibly easy to mount and makes carrying a few of them around a breeze.
Soft Quality of Light
One of LitePad's most important attributes is the quality of light it produces. LitePad outputs a soft, even beam of light which is perfect for filling in shadows, creating "beauty" light, or to mimic a practical light in the scene. LitePad has been hailed as the perfect "get me out of trouble" light because little needs to be done when using LitePad in order to make it produce beautiful light.
Low Heat
Because LitePad is an LED light source, the amount of heat generated is very low. In the center of the LitePad, the unit is cool to the touch. The edges, where the LEDs are located, are only slightly warm. This means that LitePads can be left on all day in a small set without making the room unbearable to work in.
Minimal Power Consumption
With each LED only consuming a quarter of a watt, LitePad is an extremely energy efficient light source. There is no longer the need for kilowatts of power or a generator to power a set full of lights. A few dozen LitePads can easily run off of available household power.
Easy on the Eyes
Unlike many LED sources, LitePad is a bounced LED light - not an array of LEDs pointing directly forward. Performers or technicians can look directly into LitePad without squinting, hurting their eyes or getting a headache.
Dimmable
LitePads are a fully dimmable LED product. The proprietary Single Fader Dimmer and 2 CH / DMX Dimmer can smoothly dim any standard size LitePad with no color temperature change. With LitePad's dimmers, you are able to set the exact light intensity you need.

      Comments about Rosco LitePad Quick Kit AX (Daylight):

      I'm usually usually a single-man operation, single and double person sit-down interviews, shot mostly with a DSLR.
      I was originally going to get a Rifa softbox as a primary interview light, but was persuaded to go with these, and got the kit since buying things individually from Rosco is expensive.
      The good:
      LED lights are nice, almost no heat, makes handling them a breeze. Plus, i can pack right up and leave when I'm done. The thinness of these lights is great, since you can put them pretty much anywhere. The case is durable, and weighs about 41bs, so you can check it on a flight with no overweight fees. The smaller lights (6x6, 3x12) I've used primarially as background fill lights: at a recent sit-down interview, I used the 12x12 and 6x12 as primary key and fill, and used three smaller ones just scattered around on the floor in the bg to brighten up the walls and dark corners. They worked great for that.
      You can actually daisy chain and power all the lights from a single transformer if you wanted, so that's a plus.

      The not so good: they're not as bright as I had hoped. I was really hoping that for my bare-bones shoots, especially when I'm traveling with a lot of other gear already, that I could get by with just the 12x12 as a key light in a pinch. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case. Having the 6x12 too is a pretty good idea. If your location already has a decent amount of ambient light, you can probably get aways with it, but I shot in a darker room the other day, and the 12x alone was simply not cutting it.
      Next, though this is a kit, in addition to still needing light stands (which I knew) you are also still missing one key item per light: a connection from the light to the light stand. The Grip Kit comes with these, but this Quick Kit does not - I had to buy grip heads separately.
      These lights are light, but not super light. One 12x12 Axiom definitely weighs more than a Rifa.
      This kit comes with a list of what's included, but no instructions at all. While you should be able to figure out everything, I'm still having trouble with the white bracket thing that's included - I have zero idea what it's for.
      They don't have the best or most secure attachments on the back of the lights either. They won't fall off the stand, to be sure, but neither are they rock-solid.

      Be sure of your intended use before purchasing. I'm still debating whether or not to sell this kit already and go back to halogens, or to a different light.
