The Rosco LitePad Still Photo Kit AX (Daylight) contains two 5800K rectangular Litepad Axioms (3 x 6" and 6 x 6") and a 3" circular HO+ LitePad. The kit it is made for photographers or videographers who need to work with small to medium-sized objects in close proximity. Components were selected for optimal mounting options, functionality and light control.
The included, flexible 7" Snake Arm, for instance, is paired with a LitePad Cold shoe Attachment to facilitate on-camera use and nearly unrestricted positioning. The optional 1/4"-20 Baby (5/8") Pin or LitePad Swivel Arm allow you to mount the Axioms to a wide selection of grip gear and light stands. A LitePad Eggcrate is provided for each Axiom to tunnel the light's wide beam for directional control and to minimize spill light. Transformers, a dimmer color filter packs, cables and adapters are also included along with a soft-shell case with strap to carry it all.
The LitePad Axiom is Rosco's next generation panel which features a rugged aluminum and steel housing with an integrated gel slot and provision for attachment of Axiom series arms, brackets and adapters via 1/4"-20 bolt or baby pin for maximum flexibility. Other mounting options include touch-fasteners and gaffers tape for the smaller units which measure 3 x 6" - 12 x 12 " and weigh in at just 0.8 - 3.95 lb. Even the 24 x 24" panel weighs only 13.7 lb. The 12V DC connector is now removable to facilitate packing and minimize cord damage and downtime. Lamp life is estimated at 60,000 hours making the LitePad virtually maintenance-free.
The LitePad HO+ has the same performance specs as the Axiom but minus the metal frame making it even thinner and lighter. The LitePad HO+ is only 0.37" thick and weighs in at 0.10 lb (3" circle) to 8.3 lb for the 20 x 24" model.
