Introducing the LED light everyone should have in their arsenal, the Litepanels Micro. Sometimes all you need is a tad bit of light to punch up a scene and this is it. Camera mountable and weighing in at a mere 7 oz. this little guy is ultra light. It should be – it’s body is comprised of solid plastic. Without batteries it weighs in at a mere 4 oz. – and that’s with 48 individual LED’s. Dimensions are 4″ x 3″ x 1.5″ – about the size of two decks of playing cards.
Still too bright?
Sometimes too much light just makes talent say, “That freakin’ thing is bright!” Something you’re sure to hear when pointed closely at full boar. Twist the dial on top of Litepanels Micro to get just the right exposure – all without changing color temperature. That’s right, Litepanels is known for their unique ability to dim without color shift, maintaining color accuracy across the board 1-100%
Want to switch from 5600k daylight to 3200k tungsten? Just snap the included gel frame into place and slide in a Full CTO. You’ll lose two stops using the gel, but you’ll get the color you need.
Angle too high? Built into the shoe mount is a tilt mechanism allowing you to point higher or lower – however, not side to side. Something I wouldn’t mind as some folks do not shoot with the subject dead center – panning the light could prove useful. You see, at 5 feet the pattern is spread, more of a flood so it doesn’t matter, at 3 feet and closer, it appears as more of a spot. Litepanels does offer a ball head as a separate component.
For running and gunning, mounted on top of the camera can give you usable footage where you might have had just dark grainy shadows – think news crews. Most however, will still prefer to get the light off the camera. Handhold the unit or mount it via the 1/4″-20 threads to a tripod or stand.
Though, sometimes you just can’t win and that is where this light shines, it’s primary function is to be an on-camera light. When it’s just you, Litepanels Micro front and center – you’ll be glad to have it – and bummed if you don’t when you need it. What’s the alternative? Nothing on the market has all of these features and is as small and lightweight. Really. Everyone should add this to their arsenal. Seriously, get one!
