With a stylish retro-inspired look, Hobolite introduces the Iris Bi-Color LED Light Creator Kit as a palm-sized lighting solution for content creators. Its design, graced by Hobolite's brown faux-leather details, features a clear LCD screen, an easy-to-use knurled control knob, and NFC tap technology for quick app control. One of the most elegant pocket lights available due to its simple and compact vintage body, the Iris is also versatile thanks to its 20-45° adjustable lens and bi-color punch.

Creator Kit
Included with the Iris are an adjustable lens, a frosted dome, a USB-C charging cable, and a pouch for protection. The dome softens the output of the Iris by dispersing the light, while the lens modifies the fixture's beam spread. Giving you all the essential accessories you need, this kit also includes a Fresnel lens, a set of four colored gel filters, a magic lens, and an aperture ring.
Versatile Bi-Color Performance
Go from cool to warmer tones and everywhere in between, and find the right level of illumination for your scenes. The Iris is aimed at content creators, videographers, and photographers alike. It suits any small lighting setup that requires flexible and intuitive features.

  • 705 lux at a distance of 3.3' (spot beam at 6500K)
  • 0 to 100% dimming
Adjustable Lens
The included adjustable lens lets you adjust the beam angle between 20° spot and 45° flood, which can also boost the light intensity by up to 6x.
Optical Modifiers
An aperture ring is included to seamlessly adjust light from focused to wide beam. When used with the Iris, the 28mm Fresnel lens boosts the light intensity by up to 3x. By rotating or retracting the magic lens, users can create unexpected atmospheres. Benefitting from the brand's user-friendly magnetic mount system, these compact and lightweight accessories easily attach or detach from the light.
Colored Gels
Compatible with the magic lens, four included colorful modifiers enhance your scenes with the brand's golden hour, blue hour, spring pastel, and aurora gel filters.
Onboard & App Control
You can control the Iris onboard or remotely via Bluetooth using the Hobolite app from up to 65.6' away.
Runtime

An IP54-Rated
The Iris has an IP54-rated aluminum body that makes it resistant to dust and water splashes.
