Skylux Instructions

Beautiful Daylight Output

The Skylux LED by Westcott was the first dimmable LED with a CRI rating of 94. CRI, or Color Rendering Index, is the measurement of a light sources’ ability to reveal colors in objects accurately. This is a particularly important aspect for videographers and photographers interested in displaying the most desirable hues and shades in their work. With a nearly perfect CRI, the Skylux will display natural, pristine color in both photo and video applications. With a color temperature of 5600K, the Skylux also emits a true daylight-balanced light.

Ingenious Design

Featuring a built-in frosted diffusion panel, the Skylux is shadow free and can be used with and without the use of external modifiers. This light source is dimmable from 30 to 100 percent, adjustable with a simple control dial. This absolute LED is housed in the most compact casing on the market. The Skylux’s LED are recessed behind the spring-loaded diffusion panel, into the unit’s lightweight, all-metal body. This design not only protects the LEDa from impact, but encases a nearly silent internal fan keeping the unit cool and safe. This durable construction allows photographers and videographers to utilize their largest modifiers with the simple addition of a Bowens Mount S-Type speedring.

Complete Control

Control the output of the Skylux from 30% to 100% with the rear seamless control dial. The external ballast aids to minimize the size of the Skylux unit by moving large components away from the Skylux housing. 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 receptacle can be found in the supplied parabolic reflector allowing the Skylux to be positioned directly in the center of your umbrella-framed modifier.

Effective Power Regulation

The external power ballast is the heart of the Skylux, providing the efficiency and quality expected from Westcott. When hung on a stand, this ballast acts as a weight to stabilize your modified light source and is equipped with a 17 foot power cord for hassle-free maneuverability.
