This MiniPlus 5600K Daylight Camera Lite Kit contains a great foundation for the gun-and-run videographer to build upon to meet his or her specific needs. It's also great for those who own multiple MiniPlus batteries and wish to round out their system with additional lights.
The MiniPlus fixture contains a 140 LED array configured for a 50 degree beam spread; a valuable feature when you need to cover a wide area when working close. At close range control becomes critical so MiniPlus dims from 100 - 0% with minimal color shift. An optional 6' dimming module with 2 10' extensions is available for remote dimming.
Other options include a snap-in 12V battery that powers the light for up to 2 hours. A convenient "fuel gauge" indicator lets you know when to swap batteries. The light is alternately runs on a universal AC power supply / charger.
The kit includes a conversion gel kit to balance your daylight MiniPlus with tungsten sources, as well as a ball head for flexible positioning on-camera and a D-Tap power cable.
Litepanels was at the vanguard of a lighting revolution which resulted in innovative fixtures which are used widely in broadcast, Pro A/V, on film sets and for news gathering applications. The benefits of using a Litepanels LED are many. The low-profile fixtures made of robust materials are virtually heat-free, allowing users to squeeze a light into tight places without harming the talent in front of the camera. Each LED in the fixture's array is actually a tiny lens which can be constructed to yield a flood or spot beam of light (sometimes both) and a variety of color temperatures.
Litepanels LEDs are HD friendly, meaning that they provide a soft but crisp quality of light without revealing harsh surface details on subjects, which would be made apparent by HD's incredible sharpness.
Litepanels products are a deep shade of green, that is, extremely eco-friendly. The LED source typically lasts up to 50,000 hours, is virtually maintenance-free and runs on 5% of the power it takes for traditional fixtures. That means less air-conditioning on sets, less wattage consumed and no lamp replacement cost. That is one very light carbon footprint!
