Litepanels Sola ENG overview

  • 1Description

The Sola ENG Flight Kit from Litepanels is based on the light that represents a design breakthrough in LED design. The 3.0" Sola ENG LED light provides the beam control, illumination, and single-shadow properties of standard Fresnel fixtures at a fraction of the required power. Fully dimmable with no noticeable shift in color temperature, this cool-to-the-touch LED is flicker-free and requires only 30W of power to produce the tungsten equivalent of 250W. Powered either by a camera battery or AC adapter, the Sola ENG is not only energy efficient but extremely light at 10 oz (0.28kg). This kit includes everything you need for interviews or other small productions. Three Sola ENGs are included, each with a filter set, ball head, shoe mount, barndoor set, AC power supply, and stand mount. Three compact stands are included, as well as three 6.0' power cords, three 2-pin D-Tap cables, and a Lastolite softbox. It all fits in a specially designed Pelican 1510 rolling case.

    Litepanels Sola ENG reviews

    Sola ENG Flight Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty beat up after 3 years Got this kit around August 2013 and now in Nov 2016 it's pretty beat up from our medium to heavy usage at a major university production department. The lights are mostly plastic and can't stand up to much. Ours have broken at the adapter inputs. The ball head adapters supplied are terrible and we replaced them with something better.The cables that you feed the power to the heads with is like a two part laptop power adapter and the skinny DC cables are getting intermittent. The kit stands have lasted pretty well but I usually use more heavy duty Arri kit stands anyway.The one thing that has lasted the best is - THE CASE!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compact but not very well thought-out Sounds very promising - three point lighting kit in such a compact case, seems ideal for travelling. In reality lights are not sturdy enough, very fragile plastic, the joint that connects the light to the ball-head is fixed to the light by two small screws and cracks very soon. After a year of use 2 out of 3 are on the verge of collapse. And we didn't really abuse those, normal infrequent usage. Also the quality of light is not great, the supplied softbox doesn't help getting nice soft light. Agreed, as someone said before - the best part of this kit is the case :) I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lights, but ball heads are junk I love the lights and stands and the pelican case is top notch. The only real downside is the ball heads that connect the lights to the tripod stands. They are absolute junk. One was broken before I used it. I replaced them with the Velo ball heads listed in the accessories. Now the kit feels right and gives me the functionality they should have had from the beginning. You should also know that the tripod stands are a bit unstable and need sandbags. I plan to order them next.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good case, very bad material I gave it 2 stars, because it works and has a great Pelican Case, but that's all. The build quality and the materials used are terrible, the lamp body is made prom a very cheap plastic. A minor wrong movement and the body is broken, mostly the supporting part and the focusing mechanism. The cutouts of the case are very tight, so basically you can break the lamp just by taking out of the case. The statives and ball heads are also catastrophic. If you are handling it literally like an egg, then you can use it, but for actual work is very bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Kit Kit is light weight and compact. The lights work great for interviews and are great on location shoots where space is an issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very light weight The Sola kit is very compact. We've done one trip and the packaged worked great. We were using it mostly on interior locations. Easy to set up and operate and we had no issues. We'll have to see if the lights put out enough heat for other shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mobile Light Kit This kit is great for interviews and mobile lighting situations. Cool LED lights give me a great deal of flexibility in setting up my shots wherever I am. It is compact and portable, and makes it easy to produce high quality video with excellent lighting wherever I am in the world.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so sure it travels well I got this kit to travel around with for my job. When I get it from luggage pickup, the screws in the stands were rattled loose. This happened on several occasions, and some of the screw handles don't tighten down too good. Other than the stands, these are great lights to work with.
