Litepanels offers the only infrared light source on the market designed by production lighting professionals. Litepanels MiniPlus Infrared facilitates working in total darkness, making it ideal when shooting in surveillance, video night mode or with infrared film. Producing no visible light, the Litepanels MiniPlus IR is fast becoming an invaluable tool for cinema-verite style and reality TV projects and documentaries in which you want to keep your presence minimal or shoot unseen. A single unit bounced off the ceiling can illuminate an entire room.
Litepanels MiniPlus heads feature an output control knob for instant dimming from 100% to 0, with minimal color shift. Output is fully flicker-free and heat-free, and remains consistent, even as the battery voltage goes down.
For additional control, units are available with a pre-cut interchangeable diffusion gel that handily slips into an integral frame.
Like all Litepanels products, the MiniPlus IR requires minimum power. This ultra-efficient Infrared draws an average of just 0.83 amps at 12VDC (10 Watts). It runs off of a variety of 10-30V sources, including a standard camera battery, car battery, AC adapter, or snap-on NiMH 2+ hour battery pack. The optional DV Battery Adapter Plate facilitates powering off of existing DV camera batteries.
The base plate allows the MiniPlus to be fully free standing, with easy pan and tilt adjustment. The Deluxe Detachable Ball Mount with integrated hot shoe allows for multiple configurations—on the base plate, camera hotshoe, or with other types of mounting hardware.
