16x9 Inc. Introduces New Lux LED Camera Lights
October 26, 2007
16x9 Inc. has introduced the Lux-LED-DV camera light by Bebob Engineering, an onboard light-emitting diode system that features variable focus range.
The system’s five high-output LEDs allow for stepless variable focus at an angle of 40 degrees to 60 degrees. Output is dimmable with daylight color temperature at full saturations and an incorporated cooling system keeps the light cool to the touch.
Bebob’s design incorporates power-efficient DC regulation that allows the light to operate at multivoltage inputs (from 6.5 V to 28 V), 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.
16x9 Inc. is also introducing the Lux-LED for broadcast cameras. Incorporating the same 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 onboard a camera, handheld or stand-mounted, without the need for extra accessories or brackets. Bebob’s unique double-articulation system lets the light shift position 3 inches up and down or forward and backwards, to avoid unwanted shadows.
