A few weeks ago we talked about one of our most popular lights - the Ikan IB508s. For those of you that like the Ikan's but need a little more power than the IB508s, we've just added the new IFB576 Bi-Color LED Lights with Softboxes.
The IFB576 lights measure about 14 x 8.5 x 2.27" with built-in barn doors and a removable front diffusion panel. They also come on a yoke for more secure mounting and easy positioning of the lights. The lights are bi-color adjustable from 3200K to 5600K and dimmable from 10% to 100% power. The power and color temperature can be adjusted three different ways: control knobs, the back touch screen panel, or wirelessly with the included RF remotes.
Although the Ikan IFB576 lights aren't quite as portable as the IB508s, they do pack more punch. At 3 feet with the color balance set to daylight, the output of the IFB576s is 3730 lux compared to the IB508s 2193 lux.
The kit includes 3x heavy duty stands, 3x RF remotes, 3x AC Adapters, 3x softboxes, and 2x carrying cases. The softboxes are Chimeras with three different level of front diffusers included. Out of the box, the kit can only be used on AC power, but you can also power it via Anton Bauer or Sony V-Mount batteries. If you plan on using one of these batteries, just let us know which one in the special instructions so we can include the correct battery plate.
You can see the IFB576 lights in action with this demonstration video from Ikan:
One of our most versatile lighting kits for video has been the Litepanels 1x1 LS Traveler Trio Plus. It's among the most powerful of our LED panels and offers two bi-color lights that allow you to shift from 3200 to 5600K and one daylight panel. It also includes three 8.5' light stands, three power adapters, and a convenient hard travel case for transportation that fits everything.
Our new kit (the Litepanels 1x1 LS Traveler Trio Plus with Soft Boxes) includes everything the original kit has and adds three Chimera soft boxes - making the kit even more flexible than before. This kit can also be battery powered by adding our Litepanels Anton Bauer Adapter kit and Anton Bauer Digital 90 Gold Mount batteries.
We'll be adding some more lighting in the near future. Stay tuned!
