Litepanels Ships Croma Variable Colour-Temperature LED Lighting Fixtures

Litepanels is now shipping its new Croma on-camera LED lighting fixture, capable of generating variable colour temperature illumination.

The Croma provides Litepanels hallmark soft light with the addition of variable colour temperature output ranging from daylight (5600°K) to tungsten (3200°K). It is a versatile solution for run-and-gun news shooters, event videographers, or still photographers, who move rapidly from one light environment to the next, with no time to change lighting equipment or add gels. Delivering powerful performance in a small package, this self-contained light is a valuable addition to any set or location, wherever an extra kick or soft fill is needed.

Croma provides infinite control of both colour temperature and lighting intensity via two ergonomic on-fixture dials. One dial offers the ability to dim from 100% to zero with no noticeable colour shift. The second lets the user dial-in the fill light to any point between daylight (5600°K) and tungsten (3200°K) to precisely match the ambient light.

The Croma draws just 9W and provides the equivalent luminance output of 40W – 90W traditional fixtures. To power the fixture, the user has the choice of AA batteries, or an optional AC adapter. Six 1.5V AA batteries install within the Croma will provide power from 1.5 to 6 hours, depending on the battery type.

The compact Croma weighs just 12 oz. (.4 kg) and measures 6” x 4” x 2” (54mm H x 36mm W x 102mm D).

“Our new Croma is a versatile on-camera colour-temperature LED lighting fixture that can match the ambient light with a quick twist of a knob, making it the go-to light for any environment,” said Chris Marchitelli, Litepanels VP of global marketing. “Videographers and DSLR shooters alike will wonder how they ever managed without it.”
