RED Camera Users Buy Litepanels LED Fixtures

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.
