Litepanels 909-1001 overview

  • 1Description

The Caliber LED Fresnel 3-Light Kit with Soft Case from Litepanels is a lightweight versatile and highly controllable lighting solution for photographers and videographers on location or on set. The kit includes 3 Caliber LED Fresnel lights, each with 4-way barndoors, a PIXI tabletop tripod, color frame, gel set and international AC power supply. The kit also includes a compact light stand, ball head shoe mount and a soft case with customizable interior compartments.

Ideal for travel and location work, the 2" Caliber Fresnel measures 8.8 x 3 x 3 and weighs just 1.3 lb. yet its daylight-balanced output is the equivalent of a 150W tungsten fixture while consuming just 17W of current. Versatility and control are key to the Caliber's design. Its 0-100% dimming range and exceptionally wide 17-73 degree spot-to-flood beam angle make it highly useful for everything from wide, soft wash lighting to sharp-shadow sunlight effects or hairlighting. The included 4-way barndoors allow further refinement and precise placement of the unit's beam. The light is ready for worldwide use via its included 100-240 VAC power supply but it can also run on 6 easily-sourced AA batteries when mains power is unavailable.

The lights and accessories store and travel in a soft-sided 16.5 x 10.5 x 12" case with user- adjustable interior compartments that weighs just 13 lb when filled with the kit's components.

  • PIXI Mini Table Top Tripod (Black)

    The black PIXI Mini Table Top Tripod from Manfrotto doubles as a tabletop tripod and a handheld grip support for a DSLR, point and shoot, or compact camcorder. The legs are rounded on their outer side, so the closed tripod provides a comfortable hand grip. When open, the tripod and head have a maximum height of 5.31".

Its built-in ball head has a 1/4"-20 camera screw and a unique design that allows adjustments and locking with a single push button. Besides cameras, the PIXI is also ideal for iPhones outfitted with the optional Manfrotto KLYP, and other small devices.

Litepanels 909-1001 reviews

Caliber LED Fresnel 3-Light Kit with Soft Case is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really really want to like these but This would be the perfect little kit for addition kicker lights or even shoots that don't require full power. The key selling point for these is its portability but I have tried using just about every rechargeableAA battery BH sells and none fit properly. The slots are slightly too thin. I don't want to keep buying AA when everything else I use has rechargeables. Another key failure is the power connection inside when you remove the back end to replace the batteries. it has 6 metal prongs which need to perfectly align every time you reconnect the back. If you don't then one or more will bend and most likely break. I also noticed some flicker issues when testing it out but haven'tnoticed it since. I I buy LitePanels for their name and quality and this feels and is designed like junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for location shoots I'm using these for interviews, ENG stuff, as well as some green screen work at home. They are extremely well made and seem very sturdy. It's very controllable light, bright enough to use as a key and also a great utility device for last minute adjustments e.g. put it behind the couch to light the plant. These lamps do not get hot and they run fine on battery power, has built in dimmer. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed - very useful kit Needed for occasional concept shots and where portability is important (you can hike with these, albeit in a backpack) Only ever had cheapo LED lights and a cheapo umbrella/stand/fluorescent kit before (you know the ones!) These are MUCH better, and I've already had a shoot where I needed the right light, placed just so, and one of these did the trick. The single light stand and adapter is solid and quick. I'm sure I'll use the goofy plastic legs at some point .. they seem sufficient, and have quick release heads. Nice case, although the zipper is a little thin. I'm taking one star off for two reasons: The clips and connection required to get the back of the light off, so as to access the AA battery compartment ... dodgy as all get out ... I feel like I'm gonna break it snapping it back together. I think I'd rather use 12v LiPo batteries with a cable than use AA batteries. The control for the light is on the part you remove, connected by a multipin male-female. If you mess this up, you're done. The other reason is very minor ... in the instructions it mentions that the gels included (discs - 3 ea. warming, 3 ea. cooling)will wear out sooner than you might like under constant use with full flood, so to use regular gels and bracket ... but none is suggested in the accessories or supplied. Other than that, I'm really happy with my lights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Lightweight Professional Production LED Light Kit I purchased this light kit set because I was flying to several locations and needed to scale down the weight, both for less cost in airline baggage and for a smaller crew carrying equipment for a current documentary film. We flew both Internationally and within the U.S. Unfortunately, I had to purchase two additional compact Light Stands because the kit has three lights but only one extendable stand. Thankfully, the LP1x1 LED Production Light stands were not that expensive and worked perfectly with this kit. As far as functionally, although they can be used with electricity, they worked perfectly for me on Lithium double A batteries. Totally used the spot to wide angle option on the light, and the barn doors allowed me to shape the light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grab and go kit Perfect for what how I wanted to use it. A small kit all in one small bag, battery powered for remote shoots. Light output is sufficient for an interview and great for highlighting background elements. Color is a bit cool but included gels work well to warm it up. Came with 1 ball head for light stand mounting, would have preferred 2 more ball heads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fills a lighting need niche nicely Though this kit is a little on the expensive side, the quality is decent and the bag size is compact when everything is put away. These little fresnels have plenty of pop (akin to a 150w incandescent) and light-sculpting ability for specials or situations where a small area of a scene needs a little extra illumination. I love that they are focusable, dimable, and small enough to be mounted on clamps to fit in tight places. These will likely never be all I light a scene with, but they fill a nice niche. Pros: small and compact, decent build, dimable, lightweight, flexible Cons: a little pricey, only one stand that doesn't fit in the bag (and needs a velcro strap!), goofy flexible tripods that are hard to position precisely (fortunately I have plenty of other stands)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great with AC power I really love the lights. Good power, cool look with the barn doors, and AMAZING case that comes with it. I am having major trouble with powering these with battery power, though. They keep shutting off, and flickering. The barn door screw clip also bends VERY easily, so they are never really on tight.
