Now that your Nikon D90 or Canon 5D Mark II can shoot movies, you need continuous light to do that properly. Enter the new Litepanels Micro for DSLRs.
Itâ€™s a small contraption that mounts like a flashgun on your camera measuring 3.3×3.3×1.5in and weighs just 110g. Its light source: an array of cool white light emitting diodes (LEDs) that are infinitely dimmable from 0 to 100% so you can dial in just the right amount of light for your subject.
The Litepanel Micro runs on AA batteries. You get 1.5 hours of continuous output from 4 standard AA batteries or over 7 hours with EnergizerRe2 Lithium AA’s. Power can also be supplied optionally through a convenient 5-12V input jack located on the back of the unit.
When not shooting movies, the Litepanel Micro can also provide a good fill light for shooting stills.
