The light in the picture above is the Sola 6 model –Fresnel series.  Check it out on Litepanels website!

If you are in search of professional grade movie/photography lighting, look no further–Your boys over at LITEPANELS got you covered!  I can’t say enough about the LITEPANELS lights … so thats all I’m going to post, ok c-ya.  JUST JOKING! LOL LMAO ROTFG HAHA.

Ajay Doc Johnson (professional film maker) introduced us to these wonderful LITEPANELS and we are never looking back. Well maybe to laugh at the film makers with out-of-date lights HAHA!

Myself, Citizen Shane (aka Shane Edele) and Onairus, are filmakers and film several indoor green screen shoots as well as an outdoor night shoots for our Web Series, Onairus’ Corner. And guess what?  We use LITEPANELS lights. Personally, we use the Sola 6 as a key light and the Hilio as a fill light, but they are both so versatile, anyway you put them, they produce great lighting. They are the best and EASIEST lights I’ve ever used!

With beam control of 10° to 70°, the revolutionary new Sola 6 provides the controllability and single-shadow properties inherent in a Fresnel light, but utilizes just a fraction the power of conventional fixtures.Ever had lights on set turn your ass into a sweaty pig?  Ya, me too!  HILIO lights (Picture right -light on the  left) generate no noticeable heat!  Essentially they are sweaty pig proof!  You know how nice it is to not have to shower after a shoot? So that means the HILIO lights are safer to handle and there’s no extra expense for cooling with power-hungry air conditioning. What’s more, the proprietary LEDs offer 50,000 hour lamp life.

This is taken from the LITEPANELS website:  “To answer the need for an LED fixture capable of throwing illumination over a 20 to 25 foot (6.1 – 7.6 M) distance, Litepanels has developed the new Hilio™ 5600°K. Utilizing an array of 72 one-Watt daylight LEDs that are focused to a 15° angle, the H2 Hi-Output washes the set in Litepanels legendary HD-friendly LED soft light.”
