Litepanels®, A Vitec Group brand, introduces the MicroPro Hybrid - the first professional LED light to combine continuous output and a "Flash" feature in a single fixture.
This ingenious fixture is the ideal lighting tool for motion-enabled DSLR cameras. The Hybrid's "Continuous Mode" provides luminous, wrap around soft output that beautifully complements the camera's video capability. The "Flash" feature produces a 400% brighter burst, which is perfect for illuminating a variety of still images.
Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid on-camera light runs off standard AA batteries, harnessing the company's Emmy Award-winning LED technology in a
lightweight, compact design. The Hybrid offers soft, directional lighting with the same warmth and outstanding color characteristics that make Litepanels an integral part of television, broadcast news, motion picture and still photo shoots worldwide.
MicroPro Hybrid produces 1.5 hours of continuous output from 6 AA batteries or 5-6 hours from Energizer e2 Lithium cells. The system can be run off of either standard or rechargeable batteries. Power can be supplied optionally through a convenient 5-16V input jack located on the back of the unit.
At the top of the Hybrid housing, a convenient integrated dimmer offers instant 100% to 0 dimming with minimal color shift. Output is flicker free and heat free and remains consistent. For greater versatility, an integrated filter holder on the face of the light allows for work with three included color/diffusion gels. Additional filters can be conveniently stored on the back of the fixture. A Strobe Sync Cable included at the base of the unit simply plugs in to enable a strobe function.
The compact, low-profile Hybrid head is ideally suited for mounting on a DV or DSLR camera. It 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).
