THE PROFESSIONAL lighting pioneer is making news with LED Fresnel fixtures by introducing a new member of its daylight balance Sola Series of Fresnels, along with the entirely new Inca Series of tungsten balanced Fresnels. The Sola 4 daylight Fresnel
focusable fixture features a 10cm Fresnel lens and uses a small fraction of the power consumed by conventional fixtures. It employs Litepanels’ proprietary LEDs to produce the company’s hallmark soft light quality daylight colour balance. The Sola 4 is based on the same breakthrough Fresnel technology as Litepanels’ Sola 6, but in a smaller, more lightweight form factor. It provides the controllability and light-shaping, single shadow properties inherent in a Fresnel light, with a range of focusing from 70 to 10°.
Litepanels will also unveil
new on-camera LED lighting fixtures, the Croma (variable colour-temperature) and Luma (daylight). The Croma can illuminate in any colour temperature from daylight to tungsten via an on-fixture control knob, suitable for run-and-gun news shooters, event videographers and still photographers who move rapidly from one light environment to the next. The Luma provides powerful
daylight illumination that is perfect for fill light when shooting outdoors or in similar colour temperature conditions. They draw just 9W of current, with comparable light output to that of a 40W (HMI) to 90W (tungsten) fixture, with long life from AA batteries, or both fixtures can also be powered off an AC adapter. Also making its NAB debut will be Litepanels’ Hilio high- intensity LED lighting fixture. The daylight-balanced Hilio is a small-footprint LED fixture capable of emitting daylight illumination over a 6.1-7.6 M distance, without requiring an external ballast. C6025
