Cutting-Edge Design

With a built-in spring-loaded frosted panel, the Skylux’s output is soft and flattering even without the use of modifiers. This unique design also protects the Skylux’s high-end LED from damage upon impact. And when more diffusion is desired, the Skylux’s built-in Bowens-style mount allows for instant attachment of your preferred softbox.

Ultra-Powerful LEDs

Dimmable from 30% to 100%, the Skylux emits a concentrated 8,490 lux at 1 meter.

Flicker Free and Virtually Silent

Encased in the Skylux’s compact body is a virtually silent internal fan. This fan keeps the unit cool and safe, while remaining quiet enough to use on video productions. The external power ballast is the heart of the Skylux, providing flicker-free light output. This, along with the unit’s quiet internal fan, make the Skylux a dream light source for filmmakers.

Effective Power Regulation

The external power ballast is the heart of the Skylux, providing flicker-free light output. 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.

The Skylux is multi-voltage from 100 to 240-volts, allowing for worldwide use. It’s also CE certified for safety for use internationally, giving you the ability to travel abroad without worry.
