16×9 Inc. has introduced the Lux-LED-DV
camera light by Bebob Engineering, the first on-board light-emitting
diode system to feature variable focus range.
The unique arrangement of the system’s five high-output LEDs allows
for stepless variable focus at an angle of 40° to 60°. Output is fully
dimmable with daylight color temperature at full saturations and an
innovative incorporated cooling system keeps the light cool to the
The manufacturer claims that through its use of high-efficiency
light-emitting diode technology, the Lux-LED-DV is capable of
generating greater brightness at a lower power consumption compared to
standard tungsten light systems. Bebob’s design incorporates
power-efficient DC regulation that allows the light to operate at
multi-voltage inputs (from 6.5V to 28V), making it compatible with a
much wider range of cameras. The system comes equipped with an inline
power supply adapter that enables the Lux-LED-DV to run directly off of
standard Canon BP, Panasonic CGA, or SONY NPF L camera
battery-eliminating the need for an external power source.
16×9 Inc. is also introducing the Lux-LED
for broadcast cameras. Incorporating the same sophisticated arrangement
of LEDs and variable focus as the Lux-LED-DV, this new system also
shares many features of the original Lux camera light. Its
“three-in-one” design allows it to be used on board a camera, handheld
or stand-mounted, without the need for extra accessories or brackets.
Bebob’s double-articulation system lets the light shift position 3″ (8
cm) up and down, or forward and backwards, to avoid unwanted shadows.
The Lux-LED’s ergonomic dimmer knob is integrated into the base handle
for ease of use and protection.
The new Lux-LED-DV and Lux-LED camera lights are available
exclusively through 16×9 Inc.
