Much like today's video-enabled DSLRs, the Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid Kit bridges the worlds of video and still photography by combining a continuous light source with a portable flash. This compact, highly versatile unit uses proprietary LED technology to deliver beautiful, soft light that uses minimal power, never gets hot to the touch, and can be dimmed or color corrected to suit your needs. Emitting a 50W tungsten-equivalent beam in Continuous Mode--or a 400% brighter burst in Flash Mode--the MicroPro Hybrid can be used as a direct, on-camera light source (using the included hot shoe ball mount) or mounted on a stand and used as flash or fill. Running for up to 1.5 hours on 6 AA batteries, this light makes the perfect complement to any DSLR video kit.
Shift-free, Flicker-free, Heat-free
At the top of the MicroPro Hybrid housing is a convenient integrated dimmer dial that puts instant 100% to 0 dimming with minimal color shift right at the operator's fingertips. Output is flicker free and heat free and remains consistent. For more versatility, an integrated filter holder allows for work with the three included color/diffusion gels. An integrated filter holder on the back of the unit allows for carrying extra gels. To enable the strobe function, simply plug in the included Strobe Sync Cable.
Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid produces 1.5 hours of continuous output from optional 6 AA batteries or 5-6 hours from Energizer e2 Lithium cells. It generates almost no heat, so it's remarkably easy to handle. And the system can be run off of either standard or rechargeable batteries. Power can be supplied optionally through a convenient 5-16V input jack located on the back of the unit, which accepts an optional Litepanels AC power supply, part number 900-5000 (not included).
The compact, low-profile Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid head is ideally suited for mounting on a DV or DSLR camera. Measuring just 5.5 x 3.75 x 1.5" (14 x 9.5 x 3.8 cm), the head weighs just 10.5 ounces (300g). With a handsome black finish and sleek design, it is a professional-looking addition to any camera.
Variety of Mounting Options
Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid comes equipped with a Ball Head Shoe Mount with 1/4"-20 thread, featuring an adjustable tilt mechanism and locking handle. To allow for multiple configurations, it may also be mounted on the optional base plate for off-camera usage, or on an extension arm.
