Litepanels LP1-BCF overview

  • 1Description

Production schedules are as tight as ever and any time saved in avoiding re-lamping or swapping out filters or fixtures means money saved. The Litepanels 1X1 Bi-Color Variable Color Temperature LED Flood Light is the perfect solution to this problem. Shift from 3200K or 5600K or anywhere in between with the turn of a knob. For the first time, instead of filtering a source's fixed color temperature, you can dial in the precise look and temperature that you want. Matching Lightpanels sources is easier too, thanks to the highly consistent nature of LEDs.

All the other features that we've come to appreciate from the 1x1 are on-board. Multi-voltage AC or compatibility with various DC sources, including the Litepanels 1.75 hour Lithium-ion battery, makes the 1X1 the go-to source for studio or field applications.

The slim construction (1.75" deep) and light weight (3 lbs) ensure that you can use multiple fixtures virtually anywhere they will fit without fear of injuring the talent of damaging the set.

100-0% dimming with minimal color shift has always been an outstanding feature of the 1x1, but the new Bi-Color adds Integrated DMX, enabling remote operation of the unit from theater-style dimmer boards.  

Additionally, individual units can be ganged into large banks (2 x 2,' 4 x 4,' etc.) via accessory frames and yokes.

Variable Color Temperature
Make quick adjustments from 3200K to 5600K or any color temperature in between without swapping filters or fixtures with a simple twist of the color knob.
100-0% Dimming with Low Power Draw
One-touch dimming with minimal color shift. Draws less than 10% the power of traditional lights. Draws 40 Watts @ 24V. Remote dimming possible with optional wired remote or via DMX.
AC or DC
Powered by Litepanels' multi-voltage AC source or a wide variety of 18-28V DC sources including Litepanels' 1.75 hour Lithium-ion battery.
Integrated DMX
Integrated DMX (RJ45 connectors) enable remote dimming and color control from dimming boards such as those used in theaters.
Slim Line Design
Slim, (12"W x 12"H x 1.75") heat-free design means that you can put a light wherever you can fit one without fear of damage or injury.

    Litepanels LP1-BCF reviews

    1X1 Bi-Color Variable Color Temperature LED Flood Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Run and Gun Light I've been using a Kino Flo Diva light as my go to light for years. The problem is it's size and set-up time if I want to switch from daylight to tungsten. This light fixes those issues, with the only drawback being less light output. Which I'm finding a reasonable price to pay for increased portability and ease of use. Plus having the option to run on DC power is a life saver for small run and gun productions. In my opinion this is a must have for a solo videographer/filmmaker. Make sure you invest in the Anton Bauer battery option.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth The Money! I have two major issues with this panel. 1) It is multiple light sources - Because each LED bulb is an independant source it technically renders multiple shadows on your subject. You will notice that it does not throw one concentrated beam, but rather a scatter of light whereas other, less expensive fixtures output a circular beam. And, because it has a defined hard beam, modifiers such as barndoors can acurately cut and shape the beam. 2) In order to change color temperature this panel uses a very sketchy method. Every other row of LED's outputs a warm orang-ish light and the alternating rows output a cool blue-ish light. Turning the knob to change the color temperature actually just adjusts the intensity of these alternating rows to create the desired temperature... not exactly scientific. Now if you combine this two-color system with gripe #1 above, it actually creates chromatic abberations, degrading your image quality, more so when you are at the far or near end of your focal lengths, and when stopped wide open. So, personally. I think that these particular products are VERY overpriced considering they do not throw a good quality of light. You are much better going with fresnel LED fixtures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lighting for my run and gun life. I shoot Stills and Video these days. In some cases both at the same job. Having 2 of these lights (need more). I am matching indoor light with outdoor or strobe or yesterday all 3 mixed in. These lights work very well. I am on battery so everything moves quick and in the Healthcare/For-Profit/Non-Profit business world I live in. I think these Bi-Colors are great. And the Clients think it is so Hi Tech looking that I get more work just for that reason alone sometimes... ;-) Yes the output is low, but in my world it can be just right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No heat is no joke These are a perfect replacement for scorching interview lights, both key and fill. The adjustable color temp and dimmer are amazing and they truly do not generate any noticeable heat. After hours of being on continually you can place your hand within an inch of the front of the light and not even feel heat. I recently used 2 Bi-Color 1x1's to light talent on a green screen shoot and it worked perfectly. Only con is the short 6 foot power cord which forces you to carry extra cords with you. Not a big factor in my buying decision.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent close-range portrait lighting I LOVE it! Highly flexible choice of dialing full range between Daylight and Tungsten white balance. Full-range dimmer. ON/OFF switch. That's all you have to learn and fiddle with. At 3 lbs carrying weight, and using only 40 watts, this no heat LED light is wonderful when toting around gear. Can buy a battery for on location shots. If it were cheaper, I would buy 2 or 3 more. You can use as a close main light, or further away as a fill light. For portraits of a seated subject, put it up about 7.5 feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect light the ability to go tungsten to daylight fast and to be able to dim it is fantastic...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaply made I'm a working/traveling professional. I love the ease of use that comes with these lights, you know...dimming, light weight, color balanced. My only gripe is that this thing cost me a boat load of money $ once you have all the accessories and the lousy thing is made of plastic. I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before it gets smashed by a PA dropping it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable, durable Light I use the bi-color light for absolutely everything I do, which is a lot of ENG as well as narrative shoots. I've taken it into the woods at night for 10 hours and used it just as a hair light in studio. It is highly portable, lighting quick to set up and adjust. The Anton Bauer battery lasts forever.
