Rosco Axiom overview

  • 1Description

Rosco's LitePad is a groundbreaking LED light source for videographers, photographers and filmmakers who need a small, lightweight unit with a variety of mounting options that can light areas where standard light sources simply won't fit.

This Rosco LitePad Digital Shooter's Kit AX (Daylight) contains five 5800K rectangular or suuare Litepad Axioms from 3 x 6 - 12 x 12" as well as a 3" circular HO+ LitePad. Various filters, connectors and adapters included, as are transformers, stands, eggcrates and a hard, wheeled case to contain it all.

The LitePad Axiom is Rosco's next generation panel which features a rugged aluminum and steel housing with an integrated gel slot and provision for attachment of Axion series arms, brackets and adapters via 1/4"-20 bolt or baby pin for maximum flexibility. Other mounting options include touch fasteners and gaffers tape for the smaller units which measure 3 x 6" - 12 x 12 " and weigh in at just 0.8 - 3.95 lb. Even the 24 x 24" panel weighs only 13.7 lb. The 12V DC connector is now removable to facilitate packing and minimize cord damage and downtime. Lamp life is estimated at 60,000 hours making the LitePad virtually maintenance-free. The Litepad Axiom is available in daylight (5800K) or tungsten (3600K) balance.

The LitePad HO+ has similar performance specs as the Axiom but minus the metal frame making it even thinner and lighter. Every HO+ is only 0.37" thick and weighs in at 0.10 lb (3" circle) to 8.3 lb for the 20 x 24" model.

Rugged Design
LitePad Axiom's housing is constructed from steel and aluminum making it the strongest, most durable LitePad available. The metal housing also allows for the attachment of different mounting hardware and filters directly to the LitePad. Inside of every LitePad Axiom is a LitePad HO+, which means you get all of the benefits of the HO+ product line.
Versatile Mounting
With LitePad Axiom's quick-release mounting system, it is now possible to change out the mounting option in just a few seconds. Whether it is a 1/4"-20 bolt, a baby pin or even a wall plate, it only takes a moment for a solid connection.
Interior Connector
LitePad's new interior connector eliminates the traditional wire, which had the potential to be pulled out during use. Based on user feedback, this feature was introduced to make the LitePad more rugged and easier to use.
Daylight / Tungsten
LitePad is available in two color temperatures, daylight (approx. 5800K) and tungsten (approx. 3800K). With tungsten and daylight LitePads, which have equal light output, there is no need to color correct your LitePad, losing valuable light intensity. LitePad's minimum green content allows for high color rendering and great film and digital photography.
LitePad HO+: Slim Profile
LitePad HO+ is only one third of an inch (8 mm) thick, making it one of the thinnest light fixtures in the world. Its slim profile allows the LitePad to be placed and even hidden in areas that a conventional light fixture could not fit. No thicker than a pad of paper, LitePads can easily fit into a back pack or messenger bag for easy transportation.
Brightness
LitePad HO+ offers the brightest LitePad to date. With LEDs on all four edges of all standard sizes, LitePad HO+ gives you the maximum output in the smallest of spaces.
Lightweight
Weighing significantly less than a conventional light source, the LitePad HO+ is capable of being mounted in many different ways and places. Whether it be Rosco's mounting brackets, touch fasteners, or even rubber bands, LitePad's low weight makes it incredibly easy to mount and makes carrying a few of them around a breeze.
Soft Quality of Light
One of LitePad's most important attributes is the quality of light it produces. LitePad outputs a soft, even beam of light which is perfect for filling in shadows, creating "beauty" light, or to mimic a practical light in the scene. LitePad has been hailed as the perfect "get me out of trouble" light because little needs to be done when using LitePad in order to make it produce beautiful light.
Low Heat
Because LitePad is an LED light source, the amount of heat generated is very low. In the center of the LitePad, the unit is cool to the touch. The edges, where the LEDs are located, are only slightly warm. This means that LitePads can be left on all day in a small set without making the room unbearable to work in.
Minimal Power Consumption
With each LED only consuming a quarter of a watt, LitePad is an extremely energy efficient light source. There is no longer the need for kilowatts of power or a generator to power a set full of lights. A few dozen LitePads can easily run off of available household power.
Easy on the Eyes
Unlike many LED sources, LitePad is a bounced LED light - not an array of LEDs pointing directly forward. Performers or technicians can look directly into LitePad without squinting, hurting their eyes or getting a headache.
Dimmable
LitePads are a fully dimmable LED product. The proprietary Single Fader Dimmer and 2 CH / DMX Dimmer can smoothly dim any standard size LitePad with no color temperature change. With LitePad's dimmers, you are able to set the exact light intensity you need.

    Rosco Axiom reviews

    LitePad Digital Shooter's Kit AX (Daylight) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light kit Excellent kit. Weighing in at 50 lbs., it's got as much lighting power as possible packed into one bulletproof case without incurring overweight fees from the airline. At their brightest the 12x12 lights kick out a lot of light with great color, but since the light source is evenly distributed over such a large area it won't hurt your talent's eyes even if they're looking straight at it. While that may not be a concern for a lot of shooters, we use this kit almost entirely for interviews with subjects that are not accustomed to being under the lights, and you'd be amazed how much a little thing like that helps people relax.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from green spike, incomplete kit I ordered this Digital Shooters kit because I shoot interviews around the world and wanted a portable kit that could work in multiple power systems. I was disappointed that there are only 3 clamps supplied to attach the lights to to light stands. 6 lights, three clamps: something's missing. How am I supposed to mount the other lights? I guess they expect me to buy additional clamps at $35 each. Same with the dimmers: 2 dimmers, 6 lights. This kit does not include the Full spot lens which helps direct the light ($20 for a flimsy piece of plastic). It actually does help direct the light a bit, and I bought a separate one for the 3 circle. From what I can tell it mounts into a bracket which bends the lens, so the beam is uneven, and the bracket doesn't hold the light firm enough and it feels like it's going to fall out. The worst though, is the actual quality of the light. I was hoping that for this price the LED quality would be a richer spectrum and not suffer from the infamous green spike. Not so. No matter how many times I white balanced or dialed in 5800k on the camera (that's the temperature these are rated at) the shot had a sickly green tint. They do include a selection of gels, but for the 12x12 size there's only 1 of each flavor. Same problem as before: 3 12x12 lights, 1 filter. How do they expect people to match the light? For my money I wish they would give 3 CTO gels for Tungsten looks, 3 minus green gels to try to compensate for the atrocious green spike, and three diffusion since even though this is a somewhat diffused light, it's still manages to be quite harsh on the eyes, and dim at the same time. Rosco did include a Cinegel sample pack, for some reason. It just seemed to be a waste of space to me, where I wish an extra dimmer would be. On the bottom tray the power packs are stuffed into foam cutouts, and there's no groove cut out for the protruding cable, so those are are tweaked, and get re-tweaked each time the power packs are inserted back. I was disappointed that these used such big bulky power packs. If these are such low power hogs, why do the power adapters need to be so big? I'm probably going to ask for a refund. Also, it was impossible to find out the weight of the kit before ordering. If your curious, it's 58lbs, so if you're planning on checking this as luggage, be prepared to pay overage fees, or leave some of the useless pieces at home.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice and compact The panels are super light and easy to assemble. LED is great because it gives off next to no heat.Would be nice if the output was a little brighter though.
