Litepanels LYKOS Overview

Featuring a lightweight, slim design, a handle on the side for precision adjustment, large SMT LEDs, high CRI, and other outstanding features, the LYCOS Bi-Color LED Light from Manfrotto is a modern-style, highly user-oriented on-camera light with a lot of punch.

The 48 SMT LEDs (Surface Mount Technology), designed for improved optical efficiency, feature a >93 CRI high color accuracy and provide 1500 lux max brightness at 3.3 ft. The color-temperature is adjustable by a dial on the side from 3000K tungsten to 5600K daylight, and this will allow for use in different environments. Brightness is adjustable flicker-free by a 100-0% dimmer next to the color dial.

The dials are positioned next to the handle on the side of the light, so you'll have them right at your fingertips when you adjust the light into position using the handle. The color and brightness adjustments can also be made remotely via an iPhone app by incorporating an optional LYKOS Bluetooth Dongle. This can be very useful when you have the light mounted on a tripod and especially when you're using multiple units.

There's also an LCD display on the rear that shows all the dialed in settings, and its background color is light blue, which will make reading it easier in darker environments, and which generally has a richer, more modern look. The LCD provides info on the color temperature, brightness, battery status, and more.

The light features a recessed L Series battery mount on the rear supporting all Sony and third-party L-Series batteries. It also comes with an AC adapter that will get you started right away and that can be used for continuous studio power. A diffusion gel is also supplied, and you can also attach an optional LYKOS LED Softbox to achieve more effective diffusion. Two 1/4"-20 mounting threads are available: one on top, one on the bottom.

question

Is it possible using 3 of these lights to light up evenly the space of 30ft in size, walls are light color, so that shooting at iso400, 1/320 - 1/400, F/4-F/5.6 is possible in any direction. Or are these primarily on-camera, to shoot in immediate vicinity of 2-4 ft only?
Asked by: Andrey
I can't answer your specific question. There are many variables in lighting a room. However, these lights are more powerful than just a camera light. Supposedly they have the same output as the original Litepanel 1x1s. I typically use my light in an interview session as a rim/hair light. Good Luck, Jim

question

Are these LED lights suitable for outdoor sunny day portraits? Also do they come with a regular tripod mount?
Asked by: marilou L.
For this light to have any effect outside during a Sunny Day it would need to be extremely close ot eh subject. I would say that this simply would not be a good choice. You would need a far more powerful light. Please email our experts at [email protected], they will have some good guidance on what would be a good light, or other tools you may use, during a sunny day.

question

Is there a list available online for what phones are compatible with this bluetooth?
Asked by: Anonymous
The light is not Bluetooth capable on its own. You need to purchase the LYKOS Bluetooth Dongle. Then you will be able to use the iPhone App or Manfrotto Digital Director to control the lights. The app is currently only available for iOS devices.

question

Concerning the output... is the light at full brightness even at one end of the temperature range? For example, most lights like this that I've seen are made up of 50% daylight LEDs and 50% tungsten LEDs. The light is only at full brightness when all the daylight and all the tungsten bulbs are at full brightness. Of course this means the temperature of the light is a mix. If that is true with this light, I'd rather have a daylight fixture with a tungsten gel.
Asked by: Michael
The 1500 Lux Max Brightness rating that Manfrotto gives this unit is for daylight only. It will not be with a mix of Daylight and Tungsten as it is with other LED lights, making this a very unique light.
