Litepanels has announced that RED camera users have purchased 136 Gemini 2x1 soft panels, along with Gemini accessories, through the REDUSER.net online community.
Litepanels said Travis Wears, a director of photography based in Kansas City, managed the group purchase by RED camera users based primarily in the United States. Vitec Production Solutions worked with Wears to put together a tiered, discounted pricing plan that was based on the quantity of Geminis purchased.
"It's a great product with powerful capabilities you usually don't see in a 2x1 softlight, and it's still relatively new to the market," said Wears. "When you're using a piece of equipment every day, it's the little things that make it easier to pull one light out to use over another. I take at least one Gemini on every shoot with me, and I don't hesitate to use it with any camera system in my arsenal."
The Gemini 2x1 combines daylight, tungsten and red-green-blue LEDs to deliver flexible and precise color adjustment. The soft panel produces flicker-free, full-spectrum white light for any frame rate, shutter angle or intensity. It features an extensive choice of control options designed to suit any professional lighting application.
