Litepanels launched several new additions to their ASTRA line of LED panels which debuted last year. The expanded lineup now includes the ASTRA 1×1 EP series (2x brighter than original 1×1) and the ASTRA 1×1 E series (1x brighter than original 1×1). These new models are available in Daylight and BiColor, while the original ASTRA 1×1 now includes options for Daylight and Tungsten in addition to BiColor. The ASTRA line offers a variety of intensity levels and price points, making the ASTRA available to everyone.
Also new is the Caliber 3-Light Kit, designed specifically to provide the portable, out-of-the-box lighting solution.The Caliber is a true Fresnel fixture with wide focus range that can be powered via AC or with AA batteries. The daylight-balanced LED offers the controlability and light-shaping properties inherent in a Fresnel light at a fraction of the power draw of conventional fixtures. Flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle, the Caliber Fresnel offers ultra-smooth dimming from 100 percent to zero, with no noticeable color shift throughout the entire range. Weighing in at less than 13lbs, each kit contains three Caliber fixtures and AC Adapters with international plug sets. Also included are three multi-jointed flexible tripods and a compact stand with stand adapter. The Caliber 3-Light Kit’s contents are all packaged in a fully customizable soft case, with additional storage space provided for batteries, camera lenses and other items.
