Van Nuys, California: June 1, 2012 – Litepanels® introduces the Luma™, a sleek and powerful, daylight balanced on-camera light, at the Cine Gear Expo in booth 64.

Small but effective, Luma draws only 12W of power while providing the equivalent daylight illumination of a 50W HMI. Weighing only 10oz. (.3 kg), the hot shoe-mounted Luma can easily be carried all day on a camcorder, at the ready whenever it’s needed.

“The Luma represents Litepanels’ commitment to the on-camera LED lighting market that we created with the launch of the Micro Series back in 2002,” said Chris Marchitelli, Litepanels VP of Global Marketing. “It builds off our new sleek and ergonomic Croma design, and provides a high output version for professionals that only need a daylight balanced light.”

Like all Litepanels LED lighting fixtures, Luma is designed and assembled in the USA and features full spectrum soft light output with visually accurate color temperatures. It can be dimmed from 100% to 0 with no color shift, and is flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle. Luma features a smooth, modern design with soft-touch rubberized housing, and has a conveniently located on-fixture dimming knob.

Luma can be powered with 6 AA batteries (standard or rechargeable), an AC adapter, or off the D-Tap of a professional camera battery pack.
