New Litepanels Micro Pro – twice the light!!!

April 20, 2009

After testing the original Litepanels Micro at the zoo yesterday, today brings news of the soon-to-be-in-stock Micro Pro! This would be handy for some of the bigger areas in the pavilions – I couldn’t quite get the Micro to light the corner where the bats were hanging out. I will try again with the Pro.

The pro version has twice the light at the same super portable size!

In addition to increased output, the MicroPro provides a broader source, which gives a more wrapping, HD-friendly quality of light.

The compact black Litepanels MicroPro is ideally suited for mounting on an ENG, DV or DSLR camera. It offers luminous, soft, directional lighting with the same outstanding characteristics that make Litepanels an integral part of television, broadcast news and motion picture productions worldwide.

The MicroPro produces 1.5 hours of continuous output from 6 standard or rechargeable AA batteries (depending on make) or over 5 hours using Lithium Ion AA cells. Power can be supplied optionally through a convenient 5-12V input jack located on the back of the unit.

The compact new head measures 5.5” W x 3.75” H x 1. 5” D (139.7mm x 95.25mm x 38.1mm) and weighs just 10.5 ounces (300g).

A daylight (5600K) source, the MicroPro features an integrated filter holder to provide the ability to attach diffusers and color modifiers. Filters not being used at the time can be conveniently stored on the back of the fixture. The unit comes complete with 3 filters including: Daylight to Tungsten Conversion, ¼ CT0 Warm and White Diffusion.

The Versatile MicroPro includes a ball-head camera adapter, and also offers a threaded receiver providing the ability to mount a MicroPro fixture directly on a light stand or camera arm.
