Product Details

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. Featuring a beautiful, full-color spectrum of light housed in a compact, all-metal unit embodying a unique design with a flat front panel to protect the LED light source (no protruding bulb or globe to shatter). The frosted and diffused LED source is recessed for a shadow free output. The LED source plate is spring mounted to ensure protection of the LED's if impact should occur.

The Skylux also features a dimming control dial, allowing the output of the Skylux to be adjusted from 30% to 100%. 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 virtually no heat with it's unique LED design and has a lifespan of over 50,000 hours. Photographers and videographers will also find an internal fan to keep the unit cool, but don't worry about the sound. The Skylux has virtually zero sound while in operation. The quiet fan and flicker free LED technology is a perfect setup for videographers. A solid, all-metal tilter-bracket and umbrella mount minimizes the number of hardware components to carry around.
