from a Litepanels press release
New Ringlite Mini LED Lighting System
Litepanels, the creators of award-winning LED lighting systems, introduce Ringlite Mini the smaller version of the
original LED Ringlite. Available in 5600K and 3200K models, Ringlite Mini measures just 10.5 inchs in diameter, only 2″
thick, and weighs just 3.5 lbs. This ultra-low profile, lightweight professional lighting tool offers bright, soft
directional lighting in a cost-effective, versatile package.
Ringlite Mini employs powerful LEDs laid out in a tightly plotted concentric grid. Lighting is divided vertically
into three user selectable channels of output, each controlled by an independent, adjustable circuit. On the back, four
easy-to-reach toggle switches regulate power and control upper, center, and lower illumination. Like all Litepanels
innovative lighting systems, Ringlite Mini features an ergonomic integrated control knob for instant dimming from 100-0% with
no shift in color. Plus, the new system offers remote dimming capability. Completely flicker-free and heat-free, it can be
moved in comfortably close to a subject, for unmatched soft, wrap-around light.
The lens mountable Ringlite Mini is designed to easily interface with popular DV camcorders three different ways. The
first is via an adjustable Camera Adapter bracket. The systems LED head attaches to this mounting plate via a standard 5/8
inch threaded mounting screw. The unit can also be mounted directly onto the camera lens. This method includes a two-stage
filter box for 3×3, 4×4, 4×5.65 and 4×6 glass filters. When used with larger camera and lens systems, the filter box slides
onto standard lens support rods instead of the lens.
This ultra-efficient LED light source draws just 35 amps (40W @12VDC). Power is provided by an external 110-220VAC
international AC adapter. Equipped with an XLR power connector cable, the system can be run off of a variety of 9-30VDC
sources, such as a car battery or standard camera battery.
Litepanels Ringlite Mini comes packed in a convenient carrying case. A set of 8 interchangeable conversion and diffusion
filters is available for greater lighting control. U.S. list prices start at $2995. For further information, contact Jaime
