Hobolite Announces Stylish Bi-Color LED Lighting Kits05/17/2023
Hobolite has just announced a lineup of bi-color, continuous LED lighting kits and accessories, equally useful for videographers and still photographers. Available in multiple configurations, these lighting solutions are designed to be stylish, compact, and flexible for many applications.
First are the Avant Creator and Avant Standard kits. Both kitted lights output 7993 lux at 3.3' (6500K), with color ranges of 2700K-6500K and a high CRI rating of 96. The stylish body features an LCD screen and knurled control knobs to adjust the brightness and color temperature easily.
What really distinguishes these two kits are the included accessories. The Avant Standard kit provides some handy basics―barndoors, power supply, D-Tap and AC wiring, and a V-Mount battery, clamp, and handle. The Avant Creator kit includes all these, as well as a light stand and softbox.
Additionally, Hobolite offers Mini Creator and Mini Standard kits for an even more compact experience. These smaller lights weigh less than a pound and output 7130 lux at a distance of 3.3' (6500K). With the same tunable color ranges, CRI rating, and controls as the Avant line, the miniature body is optimized for superb on-location mobility.
Also like the Avant line, the Mini Standard and Mini Creator kits come with accessories. The Mini Standard kit provides mini barndoors, a type-C cable, and a power adapter to charge the built-in Li-Ion battery. The Mini Creator kit provides all these, as well as a desktop tripod, v-mount cold shoe adapter, and v-mount ball head adapter.
The last of Hobolite's newly released kits are the Pro Creator and Pro Standard kits. Outputting 20,617 lux at 3.3' (6500K), these lights boast notably different design features than the previously mentioned kits, although the color ranges and CRI ranges are the same.
The Pro lights feature a detachable control panel and utilize a standard Bowens mount for maximum compatibility across light modifiers. The 360° yoke provides easy adjustments and functions as a carrying handle while not in use. As the name implies, the Pro light kits are the most feature-rich for professional applications.
Similar to the Avant and Mini lines, the Pro Creator and Standard kits are available with accessories. The Pro Standard includes pro barndoors, a v-mount clamp, two v-mount DC batteries, and a dual v-mount battery charger. The Pro Creator kit includes all of these, as well as a pro softbox and light stand.
Many of the kitted accessories are also separately available for purchase, which is great news if you want to tailor your own kit. Additional accessories, such as Hobolite's stands and lanterns, can be tacked on to increase the overall flexibility of your choice kit.
