Creamsource Micro Colour Overview

The Creamsource Micro Colour Essential Kit from Outsight is built around a powerful RGBW variable color (2200 to 15,000K) LED fixture with a compact 8.7 x 8.1 x 4.1" form factor. The kit includes the Micro Colour fixture, yoke, multi-voltage power supply, power header cable, 60° lens, back mount for the PSU, and a 5/8" receiver.

Flexibility and expansive color control are at the heart of the Micro Colour's design. The light employs calibrated RGBW LEDs to render literally millions of colors and a very wide variable color temperature range from a warm 2200K to an icy blue 15,000K to match other fixtures, ambient light conditions, or just for creative effect. Dimming is also continuously variable from 0-100%. Both functions are adjustable on the fixture or remotely via DMX or an optional remote control, while your settings are viewable on the graphic LCD display. The Micro Colour also has a High-Speed Mode providing flicker-free performance over 5000 fps and there's a sync input for triggering and syncing to your camera's shutter. The light has a tight 20° beam angle, but optional lenses are available to widen the coverage. A 60° lens is included with the kit.

The Micro Colour is seen but not heard. The unit's fanless convection cooling makes it ideal for sound-sensitive situations, and foul weather is no problem either thanks to the light's IP65 weatherproof rating. The fixture's 100-240 VAC power supply makes it ready for worldwide use but you can also run it on optional V-mount or Gold mount batteries with the purchase of a battery plate for shooting in locations without access to AC power.
