Litepanels SolaENG LED Fresnel Lights Now Shipping

The Litepanels Sola ENG LED Fresnel model is now shipping. Offering beam control of 10° to 70°, the revolutionary new daylight-balanced Solas provide the controllability and single-shadow properties inherent in a Fresnel light, but utilize just a fraction of the power of conventional fixtures. Employing a proprietary 7.62cm (3”) lens, it draws just 30 watts yet produces light output equivalent to a 250W tungsten.

Like all Litepanels, Sola ENG Fresnels feature instant dimming from 100% to 0 with no noticeable color shift. The SolaENG provides manual focus and dimming control via camera lens style ergonomic controls. Output is fully flicker free, and remains consistent even as the battery voltage goes down.

Employing Litepanels’ ultra-efficient LEDs, Solas draw 90% less power than conventional tungsten lights, with very little heat generation. Designed for both on-camera and off-camera mounting, the SolaENG is only 102mm x 102mm x 127mm (4” x 4” x 5”) and weighs just .28kg (10 ounces). The SolaENG runs on 10-20VDC sources such as camera batteries.

Litepanels SolaENG fixtues are available wordwide through the Litepanels dealer network.
