Litepanels’ Sola ENG LED Fresnel Lights Now Shipping

Litepanels Sola ENG fixtures are available worldwide

Litepanels’ much anticipated Sola ENG LED Fresnel model, which has already garnered major industry awards, 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 250 watts tungsten fixture.

Like all products from Litepanels, Sola ENG Fresnels feature instant dimming from 100% to 0 with no noticeable colour shift. The Sola ENG 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 Sola ENG is only 102 mm x 102 mm x 127 mm (4” x 4” x 5”) and weighs just 280 g (10 ounces). The Sola ENG runs on 10-20VDC sources such as camera batteries, or can be powered via an AC power adapter.

Litepanels Sola ENG fixtures are available worldwide through the Litepanels dealer network.
