Luxli Timpani 1X1 Overview

By B&H Photo's
Dynamic Creative Control
Free your creativity on a film set or in the studio with the Luxli Timpani RGBAW LED Light. The Timpani puts extreme color accuracy and complete control in your hands, offers more options than any other LED light in its class, and is far lighter and thinner than other RGBW LEDs.

The light is manufactured to Luxli's precise specifications in Norway, and to show you just how accurate it is, each Timpani comes with its own individual photometrics data sheet, detailing the exact specifications of that light. Four easy-to-use operation modes let you refine the color temperature to match any other light source, add a digital gel in front of it, select almost any color in the visible spectrum, or play with ten highly customizable animated lighting effects. Experience effortless, complete control of your Timpani through the intuitive LCD interface, the free Composer mobile app, or a DMX board. And at a fraction of the cost of other LED fixtures in its class, the Timpani will enhance the value of any production with its outstanding performance.

Operating Modes
CCT Mode
The correlated color temperature (CCT) mode allows you to accurately adjust your color temperature from 2800K to 10,000K while reliably maintaining 97 TLCI and 95 CRI color accuracy. This lets you emulate any lighting condition, from the cool hues of bright sunlight to the warmth of a tungsten bulb or sunset. The plus/minus green correction lets you match the Timpani's color to any light source such as the green tint of office fluorescents or the magenta tint of older LEDs.
RGB Color Mode
RGB mode allows you to maintain total control of hue and saturation. Dial in nearly any color of the visible spectrum in 1° increments. The Timpani can produce rich, saturated color that's greater than the sRGB color gamut.
Filter Mode
Set your white balance, and then select between 150 Lee-equivalent digital gels. Whether you're using technical filters for color correction, or creative gels for theatrical effects, the Timpani's filter mode provides a wide variety of customizable color options. It's just like putting a gel in front of the actual light, but without the light loss.
Effects Mode
You won't need to carry extra gear with you to enhance your video with exciting cinematic effects. The Timpani offers ten preprogrammed special effects. Adjustable parameters let you customize each effect to your specific needs. Whether you're recreating lighting from fireworks, a police car's flashing lights, or a campfire in a mild breeze, the Timpani makes it simple to create realistic lighting effects that will add drama and a dynamic look to your video.
Amber and White LEDs
The "A" and "W" in RGBAW stand for amber and white, 2800K and 5600K color temperature LED's, respectively. The Timpani mixes the output of these two LEDs to ensure exact color temperature in CCT mode, and accurate color reproduction in Gel mode.
Intuitive On-Unit Interface with LCD Display
You have enough to focus on while you're shooting, you shouldn't have to focus on understanding your lights, too. That's why we made operating the Timpani simple and intuitive. The Timpani is designed with photographers and videographers in mind, and it doesn't take an engineering degree to figure out how to use it. We've kept the interface simple so it's easy to adjust brightness and color and switch between the CCT, RGB, Filter, and Special Effects modes.
The included removable diffuser softens the beam for a wraparound light that's flattering to your subjects. It also eliminates the harsh multiple shadows that's common in LED lighting.
Size and Weight
If you're tired of lugging around lights that feel as heavy as anvils, the Timpani is the LED fixture you've been waiting for. It's less than 3 inches deep, and weighs less than 7 pounds. That lightweight and compact combination makes the Timpani easy to transport and store.
Power Options
The Timpani runs on AC power via the 4-pin XLR input. If you're not near an outlet or in the field, you have the option of running the Timpani on battery power via the integrated V-mount plate on the rear of the fixture.
The Timpani is DMX 512 compatible with control of CCT, RGB (HSL), and Filter (GEL) modes in 8- and 16-bit operation modes. And with its 5-pin XLR I/O connectors, you're ready to join any lighting grid or daisy chain your lights.
Included Yoke Mount
The Timpani includes a sturdy all-metal yoke with a 5/8-inch receiver for convenient light-stand mounting. The yoke also features tilt control and height adjustment for balancing your light.
Firmware Updates
Luxli is always working to improve the Orchestra-Series LED lights. We'll let you know when the latest firmware updates are available. Connect the Timpani's USB port to your computer for the latest performance-enhancing features the minute they're available.

I have bought 2 of these lights about a year apart. I have enjoyed using this light and I wanted another to match it. Great for colors and effects. It needs a knob on both sides because the yolk bolt comes out by itself. Made of metal and it is sturdy.

Wonderful light. Good support

I wanted this since it came out and it finally went on sale so I snagged one. I love it. It's pretty powerful and it's so useful. Easy to use even for someone like me without gel training. I had an issue when running it on battery and contacted support. They were very helpful. I learned this light requires 10 amp minimum draw when using a battery and my Maxoak V-mount batteries couldn't do it so they usually wouldn't power the light, except on rare occasion, though they work flawlessly with my Astra 6X lights. So all V-mount batteries are not the same and you'll need some good (ie costly) ones. I want another one so I have two! :)

So far so good.

Loving these so far. Need more real world usage before I'll know more. B&H should send these review requests further down the line...

This is my first ever review on this site. I must say this is an amazing light. I work on mid to high budget TVC and Film/TV productions in Australia. One year after purchasing one of these lights I have made a decision to get a second. I find this light is the most versatile to have running on battery as a floating light on set, to finesse shots when required. Usually when moving for singles. Colour wise I have no complaints - more level would be a god send, but I find the output of this light is usually more than adequate. I use the angler softbox for this, which that in combination with the grid is my go to setup. That is nearly always on standby on any shoot. For a 1x1 that can do nearly everything, you can't go past it. App control is also great, something that can add that extra dimension of possibilities.
