‘Tis the season to be jolly … as with IBC upon us, manufacturers are unveiling all sorts of lovely toys to add to your Christmas wish list.
Today it’s the turn of Litepanels who’ve announced a diddy little on-camera LED light called the Brick. It’s bi-colour (ie tunable to tungsten or daylight colour temp) and uses “high CRI” LEDs (they all say that, mind you).
Here’s the claimed spec: up to 1060 LUX (98 Footcandles) at 5ft (1.5M) – which is quite a lot – and it draws 19W – which is not very much at all really. It dims from 0-100% and Litepanels say it has no flickering or discernible colour shift.
Here’s the even better news for, well, those who like news – specifically VJs and ENG camera operators – it’s IP65 certified ie splash proof for filming in the rain, and it’s dust tight as well.
Power is from a 3-foot-long D-tap cable and has 1/4″-20 mountings.
Should you feel the urge to be bold with your list to Santa, you might like to specify the Kit version which also includes:
Half white diffusion gel
Manfrotto 244 Micro articulating arm
6ft (1.8 m) international power supply
60° honeycomb frame
Soft diffusion frame
Waterproof hard case with custom foam for safe transportation
Let’s face it, you’re going to want the Kit aren’t you?
Should you also need it, there’s an Anton/Bauer QRG-LG plate and an Anton/Bauer PowerTap extension available too.
No word on price but Litepanels aren’t generally cheap so you’d better hope you’ve been very good this year.
