About Litepanels

The Litepanels MicroPro on-camera light provides increased output, a broader source, which gives a more wrapping, HD friendlier quality of light. The compact black Litepanels MicroPro is ideally suited for mounting on an ENG, DV or DSLR camera. It offers luminous, soft, directional lighting with the same outstanding characteristics that make Litepanels an integral part of television, broadcast news and motion picture productions worldwide.

The MicroPro produces 1.5 hours of continuous output from 6 standard or rechargeable AA batteries (depending on make) or over 5 hours using Lithium Ion AA cells. Power can be supplied optionally through a convenient 5-12V input jack located on the back of the unit. A daylight (5600°K) source, the MicroPro features an integrated filter holder to provide the ability to attach diffusers and color modifiers. Filters not being used at the time can be conveniently stored on the back of the fixture.

The unit comes complete with 3 filters including: Daylight to Tungsten Conversion, 1/4 CT0 Warm and White Diffusion. The Versatile MicroPro includes a ball-head camera adapter and also offers a threaded receiver providing the ability to mount a MicroPro fixture directly on a light stand or camera arm.

Very Useful Constant Light

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Professional Artist

The model I own only has an all-on option. The newer models have single-shot (like a flash) option and have options for tungsten as well as outdoor light temperatures, all of which makes for a far more useful light which I highly recommend.

Fantastic light

By

I use my MicroPro on and off my camera. It is a great cool light for many uses. At the zoo, I wave the light to get the attention of the animal and can aim the light exactly where I want it! I love this light!

LitePanel, Heavy Quality

By

from Kenosha, Wisconsin  -  Experienced

I used the light for exterior/interior/day/night. I need it for both video/photography. It performed really well at night/interior/exterior and poor day/exterior. I do not blame the quality, just the size. The throw is about 8-10 feet. I plan to purchase a soft box to spread the light even more but was very grateful for the 3 gels that came with the light. You need to dial-up the light all the way, then dim it down to your setting. My rebate offered a heavy-duty carrying pouch that I am currently storing my light in. Removing the batteries was a little hard, but that should mean they won't slip out, I can live with that.

A great little, cool light.

By

from South of Baltimore  -  Experienced

The MicroPro light may be one of my better investments. The included filters and diffusers, the sturdiness of the casing, and the brightness are all pluses. The beam could be a bit broader, but the diffuser helps with that. And the dimmer works well. I know I'll need an external rechargeable battery supply. A very nice addition for my HDV camera.
