The next big thing in LED studio lighting is here: Meet the SkyLux from Westcott. The first daylight-balanced studio LED with a CRI Rating of 94+ that allows photographers and videographers to utilize their favorite modifiers with the addition of a single Bowens Mount Speedring.

The SkyLux is a beautiful, full-color spectrum of light housed in a high-quality, compact, all-metal unit, which embodies a unique design with a flat front panel to protect the LED light source. Meaning, there's no protruding bulb or globe to shatter. This durable construction allows photographers and videographers to utilize their largest modifiers, like the Westcott 7' Octabank, with the simple addition of a Bowens Mount S-Type speedring. The Bowens S-Type mount allows for the usage of softboxes, umbrellas, snoots, barn doors and gels.

The built-in diffusion panel allows photographers and videographers to shoot without adding a modifier and still achieve a beautiful, soft, and consistent output. This frosted and diffused LED source also allows for a shadow free output. The LED source plate is spring mounted to ensure protection of the LED's if impact should occur.

Control the output of the SkyLux from 30% to 100% with the rear seamless control dial. The accompanying external ballast aids to minimize the size of the SkyLux unit by moving large components away from the SkyLux housing. Extended cables ensure a versatile and mobile SkyLux unit in the studio.

Unlike units utilizing halogen or tungsten bulbs, the SkyLux gives off little heat with it's unique LED design and has a lifespan of over 50,000 hours. Photographers will find an internal fan to keep the unit cool, but without worry about the sound for video. The SkyLux has virtually zero sound while in operation. The quiet fan and flicker free LED technology is a perfect setup for videographers. Solid, all-metal tilter-bracket and umbrella mount minimizes the number of hardware components to carry around. An umbrella hole can be found in the supplied parabolic reflector allowing the SkyLux to be positioned directly in the center of your umbrella-framed modifier.
