Compact and Powerful
Surprisingly powerful for its size, with a wide color temperature range and high CRI rating, the Luxli Cello² 10" RGBAW LED Light is an excellent choice as an on-camera light or for use as a production light for key, fill, or effects. The 176 5-die RGBAW LEDs inside the panel can reproduce nearly every hue of the visible spectrum in the expansive HSL mode for surprisingly rich saturated colors for a light this size. Traditional CCT mode delivers a color temperature range of 2800 to 10,000K, and Filter mode lets you accent it with one of the 150 preloaded gels. The Cello² provides precise color and illumination control that allows you to match your ambient light conditions, whether daylight, tungsten, or a mix of the two. For additional realistic and dramatic effects, the Cello²'s Effects mode offers 10 preloaded animated effects with lots of editable parameters for precise control over your lighting scheme.

The Cello² really comes into its own when combined with the remarkably powerful yet simple-to-use Composer app. With built-in Bluetooth 5, you can control the fixture from up to 100' away with the same quick response you get from the LCD screen. A newly designed power system lets you power through lengthy shoots and live streams on DC power as well as charge a battery while plugged in via the DC or USB Type-C port. While the fixture is compact enough to fit atop a camera or camcorder using the included ball head adapter, it can also be mounted on light stands for creative, off-camera lighting scenarios.

Lightweight and Powerful
The Cello² combines functionality and power into a compact 10" light source. Supporting CCT, RGB, and a variety of filters and effects, it features 1500 lux output at 3' with a high CRI/TLCI rating for rich saturated color reproduction.
5-Die RGBAW LED
Each of the fixture's 176 LEDs is five smaller red, green, blue, amber, and white LEDs combined into a single package. That means all the LEDs are active with smooth and even light output and no dim areas from deactivated LEDs, no matter the mode you're in. This design lets you shoot with higher output.
Lighting Modes
Whether you need to match ambient light conditions, or need a kiss of color to accent your subject, the Cello² has an operating mode for you. CCT (correlated color temperature) mode is perfect for setting traditional lighting temperatures from 2800 to 10,000K, and Filter mode lets you accent it with one of the 150 preloaded gels. Take advantage of the HSL capabilities and select from virtually any color in the visible spectrum, controlling hue and saturation, while the Effects mode puts ten editable preprogrammed special effects at your fingertips. Use the Composer app to unlock even more features and functionality.
Intuitive Interface
The built-in LCD screen offers a simple and intuitive interface that allows you to adjust brightness and color and switch between the HSL, Filter, CCT, and Effects modes with the touch of a button. The full-color display allows you to accurately select the color of the fixture's output.
Power
The Cello² is powered by a single L-series battery, and it features a USB Type-C port and supports Power Delivery 3.0. This allows you to use the included USB Type-C cable and wall adapter to power your fixture without using a battery. When the fixture is connected to the wall charger, you can also recharge an attached battery while you power the light without interrupting your workflow.
Precise Calibration
To assure your light conforms exactly to Luxli standards of superior quality, every Cello² is individually calibrated and tested before it leaves the factory. A serial numbered photometric calibration result sheet that lists the lux output, CRI, TLCI, and color gamut is included with every light.

Luxli Cello RGB LED Light Reviews

Still the best for travel, but not perfect

By Jaime
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-07

Nothing beats this light for travel. Trust me, I'm on a plane every week with a full portable studio in a suitcase, and I've tried EVERYTHING. Yes it is pricey, but after buying much larger lights and getting simply good performance, I bit the bullet and bought two of these. That said, why not perfect? Well, like its predecessor, I do wish it wouldn't make crackling noises when it heats up. It's the price we pay for so much power in such a small package, and yet, I'm willing to ignore it given how I can carry two of these in my carry-on and take less space than two pairs of socks.

Amazing light needs better build quality and more modifiers

It's an amazing lighting unit, very powerful and very capable, and color accurate, but I wish a butter build quality and more threading points, and unfortunately there are only a couple of modifiers available for it and no third party available

I have been using two of the Cellos pretty heavily for a few years now and they have been very good. I bought one of the new ones and I think that they have addressed some of the issues that were bothering me. One was the overheating when using the rubber mounted diffuser after a half hour or so it would cut out (hitting 183). I popped the barndoors and diffuser on and an hour later it was only at 138. Speaking of the barn doors, I am happy with the way they work and construction quality. If they aren't long enough in any application at least there is something to pin black wrap or diffusion onto. The low profile knobs are welcome as they have been an issue when packing them (managed to break one of my old diffusers.) I am fond of the Luxli App, it's quick and consistent across the whole line, great when using this light as a backlight!

The future is here.

Perfect addition to my Taiko and Fiddle LUXLI family

By Art Video
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-25

I own a LUXLI taiko for almost 2 years, also the LUXLI Fiddle the day it was released. Never had a problem with neither one. And if I ever did, simply email or call LUXLI tech support and they will take care of whatever the problem is. Also, reminding you that these lights are not made in China. They are carefully crafted and not uncontrollably mass produced. LUXLI is made in Norway. Both the Taiko and Fiddle are made of metal. Well... Sometimes, metal is not a good thing. The Cello is made of plastic, with the 'on camera thought in mind. If it were made of metal, it would cause your camera to be front heavy, not to mention I don't want to touch metal in the cold winters when using it on my camera. To make it even lighter, you can power the light using a USB-C PD (power delivery) powered from your intelligent Micro V-Mount USB-C port, instead of the Sony NPF battery (you decide the location you'll mount your V-Mount battery somewhere in your rig though...) The light comes with everything you need: A battery, a generous length USB-C cable, plus the proper charger brick this unit requires. It will also charge the battery while plugged in during use via USB-C as the main power source. This is excellent when you're shooting a corporate video, so you use the light plugged in via USB-C, then, suddenly, they ask you to go film a quick take in another room, ot outdoors, at 6pm. You'll need a light...Then you use it with the Sony battery. When returning to the main room that were shooting that interview, plug it back in and the battery is now back to charging. Lastly, the same way it is a good idea to film a multiple camera project using the same camera and model (they would have the same exact profile and look identical), having multiple lighting gear of the same brand, the lighting will be more even, having the same color cast (not too green, nor magenta etc), the CCT will be also identical if you set, for example, all to 5200K, since it will be the same exact LEDs on all lights, with the same software and type. So, Combining the LUXLI Taiko as the main key light, a Timpany as a fill, the Cello2 and the rim light or background light, and the Fiddle as the hair light, instead of mixing all kinds of lights from different brands. When you watch the News, all the lighting from their stage ceiling are the same brand and type. The same goes for high end filmmakers. I actually made a Youtube video specifically for the Cello 2 in extreme detail, which will help you a lot knowing more details about the cello 2, possibly answering every question you might have, including all accessories that are optional with this light such as barn door and diffuser.

My Favorite LED Light Hands Down!!

The Luxli Cello2 is the perfect LED RGB Light! The 10 size is perfect for lighting a subject perfectly with very little drop-off and nice even spread. The controls are simple and when you use the Luxli App you can really unleash the full power of this creative, easy to use, powerhouse of a light. I recently used it as a key light for one of my photoshoots and the 56K daylight is spot on! I Highly Recommend. [I received the product in exchange for my honest opinion]

The new model with barn doors and mag attach diffuser has taken care of any issues that I had with the prior release. I normally carry one each of a variety of instruments for doing location lighting. I take three of these. Softer and more powerful than you would expect with a comprehensive control system that is on a very functional Bluetooth app.

Powerful small form factor light with loads of features!

I've been using their originalI purchased the original Cello several ago when it was first released and after years of beating it up in my bag and on the road it still works as well as it did on day one. As a professional filmmaker and Sony Artisan of imagery I love having it tucked away in my bag taking up so little space but there when I need light in a hurry. The new V2 has a greatly improved accessory attachment system (magnetic) and makes popping a diffuser on and off so much easier as well as barn doors to help shape the light. It's visibly brighter that the V1 and I appreciate having a usb-c port on it instead of the older style. All in all it's a beefy upgrade that's definitly worth taking a look at. [I received this product in exchange for my honest review.] Cello for years (since it's release)

What changed from the previous version? We have a pair that make lots of noise when they warm up and cool down. Is that fixed in this one?
Asked by: Matt
Upgrades include the new 5-die LED system, upgraded Bluetooth 5 capability, a USB Type-C port with Power Delivery 3.0 and the ability to quickly and effortlessly update the Cello's firmware from the Composer app without having to take it out of your lighting setup. The Cello2 is also lighter than, weighing just 12.5 ounces and still only 9.5 × 3.7 × 1.1 inches large. From our sample model in the store, we did not hear any significant or severe noise during warming up and cooling down.
