Litepanels Caliber Overview

The Caliber LED Fresnel Light from Litepanels is a lightweight versatile and highly controllable lighting solution for photographers and videographers on location or on set. The light includes a 4-way barndoor set, a PIXI tabletop tripod, color frame, gel set, and international AC power supply.

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.

    question

    hey, the overview says that the light is twice as bright when plugged into AC power. Does that mean it gets the equivalent power of a 300w light when plugged into AC or does that mean that the light normally runs at a 75w when battery powered with a max of 150w when plugged into AC? Thanks!
    Asked by: Tracy
    The 150w equivalent is when it is plugged in to AC.On batteries it is like it is the equivalent of a 75w light.

    Is this a good kit for macro-photography use, ...

    Is this a good kit for macro-photography use, such as focus stacking? Would the light be consistent from frame-to-frame? Is the color quality high enough, or does it have off hues that require correction?
    Asked by: John
    The color and output of these lights would be consistent from frame to frame when using them for macro photography.
