WPPI 2018: LITRA and the Tough Torch Adventure Light


LITRA is a relatively new name in the lighting world, a company that is looking to make a big splash with the LitraTorch Adventure Light. An exceptionally tiny LED light, about the size of a GoPro Session, this fixture wants to be the perfect companion to your action camera or smartphone. We went hands-on at WPPI and saw just how great these lights are in person.

With high quality, marked by a wide 80-degree beam angle and a blending of the LEDs for a smooth, hot-spot-free light, the LitraTorch will satisfy many videographers who need a tough fixture. The 5700K LEDs also have a maximum output of 800 lumens with a continuous output of up to 2200 lumens when set to strobe mode. This variety of settings gives it added versatility, since it can quickly switch from an on-camera light to a bike strobe in mere moments. We haven’t even touched upon the rugged build of the LitraTorch—it boasts waterproofing to 30' and a solid metal housing.

Controlling the LitraTorch is incredibly simple, with a single large button allowing shooters to cycle through three power levels, from 100-800 lumens and the strobe setting. It can be mounted in a variety of configurations, with a 1/4"-20 thread on the rear and bottom, as well as a magnet on the back for an additional option. LITRA makes various accessories for other uses, including a smartphone mount, a ball head with shoe mount, and more. The LitraTorch runs on a rechargeable Li-ion battery that will keep it powered for four hours in continuous or seven hours in strobe modes.

The LitraTorch is looking to be the best compact light for action cameras, smartphones, and other small setups. Are you looking for a new rugged light? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments section!
