Litepanels launches updated Lykos+ mini LED panel
Litepanels has launched an updated version of its Lykos portable LED light, now 40% brighter than the previous generation.
At 2000 lux (@3ft/1m) of white light at any color temperature from 3200-5600K, the bi-color LED panel is one of the smallest offered by Litepanels.
Incorporating advanced LED and lensing technology developed for Litepanels’ Astra range of 1×1 panels, Lykos+ offers broadcast-quality lighting – with a CRI of 96 for true-to-life color accuracy – in a fixture that weighs just 1lb (500g).
Lykos+ is the perfect light for remote locations or tight spaces, its compact size fits into any scene with the small but powerful fixture providing over two hours of operation via its built-in L-series/NPF battery mount.
“The quality of light from our Astra panels has made them industry standard for studios and news crews,” said Michael Herbert, product manager, Litepanels. “Now, with the introduction of Lykos+, that same broadcast-quality level of light is available in one of our smallest, most portable fixtures.”
The versatile mini light offers multiple mounting options or can be hand-held with a sturdy hand grip. Stand mounted, taped or tied, Lykos+ is designed to integrate easily into any lighting scene. Brightness and color temperature are controlled by two simple dials or via the Litepanels SmartLite Director iOS app with an optional Bluetooth dongle.
Lykos+ is available now from Litepanels authorized retailers as either an individual fixture or as a Flight Kit incorporating three lights, stands, filters, softbox and a Peli rolling flight case.
