This B&H Kit combines the Luxli Viola 5" On-Camera RGB LED Light with a very useful accessory: the Luxli Diffuser Kit which has been specifically designed for the Viola. The Viola features two different color scale settings: enabling it to produce a light output from 3000 to 10,000K, or you can use a 0 to 360° RGB scale. Two rotating knobs allow you to adjust the color temp/color and brightness independently. You can also use the downloadable app for more precise control and even program the light to produce effects.

The Luxli Diffuser Kit snaps onto your Viola 5" and features a matte black exterior with a matte white interior finish that provides a neutral color to any light that it helps reflect forward. Designed specifically for the Luxli Viola, the hood sits snugly and incorporates tiny air displacement holes, otherwise you wouldn't be able to expand or collapse the hood on the fixture with a diffusion filter in place. The kit includes three micro lens diffusers, a 40° (mounted in the hood), 20°, and 5°. Each filter is rigid and contoured to fit securely in the hood.

  • Luxli Viola 5" On-Camera RGB LED Light

    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 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 Control for Full Color and Lighting Control
    The free iOS app gives you full control over brightness and color temperature on your 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 iPhone'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 iOS app to choose from a library of built-in effects, or sample video effects from an existing video stored on your iPhone. 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 iOS 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 Diffuser Kit for Viola 5" Multi-Color On-Camera LED Light

    Designed and built specifically for your Viola 5" Multi-Color On-Camera light, the Luxli Diffuser Kit allows you to soften the shadow edge of your light fixture. The diffuser kit is a silicone rubber hood that snaps onto your light and features a matte black exterior finish so it is less noticeable on set or location. The matte white interior finish provides a neutral color to any light that it helps reflect forward. Once attached the hood stays securely on your light without blocking access to your light's controls or 1/4"-20 mounting hole.

    The hood is collapsible, so you don't have to remove it for storage, and you can leave one of the included diffusion filters attached to the hood when collapsed. The kit includes three diffusion filters, a 40° (mounted in the hood), 20°, and 5° micro lens diffusers. The 40° filter provides the most dramatic softening and beam spread, while the 5° diffusion filter softens the beam just enough to remove multiple shadows. Each filter is rigid, and contoured to fit securely in the hood. Please note the hood is designed to only accept one filter at a time.

    Silicon rubber construction, formfitting and contoured to fit your fixture without obstruction access to controls or mounting points.
    Only a very minimal 0.1 f/stop of light is lost when using the 5 or 20 degree diffusers.
    The hood is collapsible for storage without removing the hood from your fixture.
    Featuring a raised lip that prevents it from sliding too far onto your light, the hood also features a raised ridge that mates with the groove on your fixture to hold the it securely in place.
    The hood incorporates a set of small air holes on the top and bottom. These holes allow the hood to expand without creating a vacuum, and to collapse with a filter in place.
    The diffusion kit ships with the rubber hood and three diffusion filters, a 40, 20, and 5°. The 40° filter is shipped installed in the hood.
    Each filter has its strength formed into the edge for easy identification.

Viola 5" On-Camera RGB LED Light with Diffuser Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accessories You May Need I think this is going to be a very good high-dollar camera light, once I get all the accessories I need. I will be using it on a professional Sony XDCAM so I wanted to run it off my camera battery. I accomplished that with this cable which is listed as an accessory:Anton Bauer PT-FS4 Power Tap to Firestore - Power POWERTAP FS4 I also wanted to be able to do the firmware update and finding that cable turned out to be much more of a hassle because it was not listed with the other accessories when I bought the light. I was told by the folks who rep this light in the U.S. that this is the cable I need for the firmware update:Pearstone USB 2.0 Type A Male to Micro Type B Male USB-AMIB3 B&H I just ordered this cable and I expect it is going to work. I suppose you could run this light off of an AC Adaptor but there was not one listed with the accessories when I bought the light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light Its a cool light, I use this for weddings. Its great to be able to dial in the tungsten to match the venue (typically 3000-3750) and adjust to taste. The colors work as backlights, probably better if still photography, but wouldn't work on a dance floor to match DJs lights as you'd just see blue or red people. The diffuser probably isn't recommended, it comes off too easily & never seems secure, you could probably do better taping vellum paper onto it or something. Overall its good, and pretty small but has good throw & can get very bright. I'm usually under 100% for 1st dances at weddings, and again you can easily adjust brightness, and tungsten/daylight hue, as well as switch it over to RGB colors if you wish, thats probably more usable for photography or studio lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on cam light With it's multi color options, this awesome light adds a lot of versatility to your gear. A little on the expensive side, but very good quality. The ability to control it from an app is also very handy, although the app is somewhat clumsy on functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaces a BOX of lights for my production I'm quite disappointed with the battery capacity, but they use Sony NP-F or L-style batteries, which means it's easy to buy upgrades for fairly cheap. Beyond that, the light is great. It gets very bright, and is a proper video light - no crazy 50/60hz LED refresh nonsense once it's on camera. Color accuracy is solid, and the ability to easily switch between white color temperatures and RGB colors is great. There's a small LCD screen on the back of the panel. This shows battery status, Bluetooth status, brightness percentage, as well as color temperature. The included ball-joint mount feels very high quality and locks into place well. The App is a convenient idea, but iOS only at the time of writing. It lets you control the color, apply a couple strobe-like effects, and even make a colored effect from a photo! Neat, but Android please! The diffuser kit for this is nice but too expensive for such a purpose, in my opinion. It gets hot, but not too hot to touch. It does creak or pop from heat, though. This has replaced a box of different lights for me, been hugely convenient.
