Luxli ORC-VIOLA-5 overview

  • 1Description

The Viola 5" On-Camera RGB LED Light is the first fixture in the Luxli Orchestra line. So named because all the lights in the line will be controllable by the Luxli Conductor app (for iOS and Android devices), just as if they were instruments in an orchestra. The Viola features a dimmable output that can be adjusted from either 3000 to 10,000K or 0 to 360° RGB. The unit incorporates two endlessly rotating knobs. One knob controls the flicker-free dimming adjustment from 100 to 0% brightness, while the other knob controls the color output of the unit.

Useful and functional by itself, the Viola shines brightest when used in conjunction with the free mobile device app, the Conductor. Bluetooth is always active on the fixture, and the app allows you to individually control or link together up to 6 units. With the app, you can adjust the output of the light to match a specific point of an image or video. What is more interesting is that you can sample the color and brightness from a video on your mobile device, for example a campfire, and have that sample control the brightness and color output of the light. The fixture powers from 7 to 15 VDC via a 2.1mm power port on the side of the fixture or by an included NP-F550-type battery. Mounting is via the built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole.

iOS or Android App for Full Color and Lighting Control
The free phone app gives you full control over brightness and color temperature on your Android device, or iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with iOS 8.0 or above. The app gives you access to light color control and effects. A standard color picker lets you choose the light color that you want, opening up a world of creative lighting possibilities. You can also use your phone's camera to sample colors from the environment around you.
Manual Brightness and Color Controls
The Viola can be used as a standalone device and features manual controls for adjusting both brightness and color temperature. The knobs are endlessly rotating and feature detents as you turn them.
Color Temperature or Color Control
You can toggle between color temperature and color output. Color temperature is continuously adjustable from 3000 to 10,000 degrees Kelvin. You can also set the output to fall on a color scale from 0 to 360° as might be found in common photo editing software.
LED Info Screen
An integrated info screen enables confirmation of color temperature, color output, battery, and Bluetooth strength.
Animated Lighting Effects Library and Sampling
Use the phone app to choose from a library of built-in effects, or sample video effects from an existing video stored on your phone. Simply open a video from within the Conductor app, move the cursor over the light effect you want to sample, and the app will stream that effect straight to your Viola. Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app's effects library.
Link Multiple Fixtures
Light your object or scene from various angles by using multiple Viola lights. You can link them together via Bluetooth 4.0 LE and control them all simultaneously via the app.
A included ball-joint cold shoe adapter allows you to mount the light on your camera's cold shoe. An integrated groove around the edge of the fixture is for a future diffusion hood (not included).

    Luxli ORC-VIOLA-5 reviews

    Viola 5" On-Camera RGB LED Light is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome on camera option! This light might look small but it's fantastic. It's super bright and has very easy, intuitive controls for adjusting brightness and color temperature. The small information display also gives small icons to help with color temperature to know where you color is sitting. The mount that comes with is simple but well built with plenty articulation. The best thing, though, is the actual light output. It's very natural with nice fall off that doesn't need to be over cranked to get consistent coverage on your subject. This is a perfect addition to any run and gun rig!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A versatile light I've used the Viola for a few months now and it's a great light. I really like the flexibility to use both CCT and color wheel modes. Most of the time I use CCT (of course) but there are times where adding a punch of color is really nice. That is something that none of my other LED panels can do. And while a single Viola may not work as a key light, it's an awesome travel light. I only used one, but with the iOS app you can control several of these at once so I suppose you could combine several ones into a large panel. I like the diffuser also. It has rubber sleeve that fits right over the light and also compresses down when I pack it in a bag (so I don't have to remove and attach it every time).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Flexible and Feature-Rich As someone who is adding more multimedia to my business in 2017, I was impressed with the flexibility of the Luxli Viola. Not only does it offer a wide range of color options to light a set, it also lets me adjust white balance. Controls couldn't be any easier; the interface is intuitive and a breeze to figure out. And, thanks to its rechargeable battery, I don't have to worry about dragging a cord with me on the go. I really appreciate that I can add this to a flexible arm mount, tripod, or portable rig with my smartphone. Moreover, it's much lighter in hand that one might imagine. Once in place, you hardly notice its weight -- a real bonus when your trying to pack only the essentials for a day out shooting. I've got a lot more to learn about the ins and outs of still photography and video, but I couldn't be happier with having the Viola in my growing arsenal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Investment, Gigantic Results I absolutely love this light. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it to see if it lived up to the hype. It does not disappoint at all. I used to rent a lot of equipment to get the look that this pocket size device delivers. I only purchased one, but I'm planning to purchase another or jump up to the 10" Cello. This product is a winner. Also, it's worth mentioning, the app makes things more convenient, but the product is NOT a slave to the app and works independently of it if necessary. If you forget your phone or bluetooth device, you're not at a loss at all because the controls physically reside on the device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Powerful Bluetooth Mini LED Light Ive been looking for a new, lightweight on-board camera light and the Luxli Viola is a perfect upgrade. The weight is amazingly light, the knob controls have a nice clicking feel and temperature accuracy is pretty spot on. One of the best features by far is the Bluetooth compatibility. Changing colors and light effects through the Conductor app is extremely fun and intuitive which opens up a slew of creative possibilities for shooting. Check out my video review below for more details on the features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Vesatility I love this light! When shooting medical or hi-tech interviews it is so easy to bathe a background in party blue or some other "technical" color. The real miracle for me was shooting inside a beautiful old church that had recent installed greenish fluorescent lighting. �To the naked eye the lighting looks fine, in this interview setting my interviewee looked normal but the church is puke green. My remedy to this was take the camera off the tripod walk beneath the ugly green light source, zoom in, auto iris, white balance. �The church is now beautiful to camera. Back on the tripod at the interview setting the interviewee is almost purple. �With the Luxli Viola I slowly dial in the green LEDs and the flesh tones in the viewfinder are coming to life. �Not perfect but very, very close! Nothing a little color correction in post couldn't fix. The light is bright and soft AND really well made. �It's made in Norway. I can not brag enough about this light. It is much brighter than many lights of the same size and again it's versatility is second to none.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite new small LED. Love the design and quality of light from this. Be sure to buy it with the rubber modifier. Just finished a project with this and client was gushing about how nice the light was.
