Through their US Distributor, Manios Digital & Film, manufacturer Kinotehnik has introduced some impressive accessories into the market. I’ve used both their LCDVF loop and the LCDVFe their electronic viewfinder and can attest to their high quality and tremendous craftsmanship. So I’m personally excited about their latest product, the Practilite 602 Fresnel smart light.
The 602 is the first in the range of 600-series smart LED fresnel lighting fixtures (601, 602, 603) daylight bicolor tungsten.
The Practilite 602 comes with an app for smartphones and is Bluetooth capable. This remote function is especially useful for single-person shooters or small crews. From tungsten to daylight, the Practilite 602 allows content creators to easily dial in matching color balance, tune the brightness and set the beam angle remotely through the Practilite 602 app.
The durable full aluminum construction and compact size makes it easy and cost effective for transporting and the universal AC/DC power supply can be used internationally.
The variable beam Fresnel and borosilicate glass lens enables to gather and throw the light much farther than conventional LED fixtures, enabling wider shot angles and precise light shaping without losing the LED output power/throw, which is typically the case with barndoor-controlled fixtures.
