Broadcast Asia 2012: Rotolight Anova LED light and Tiffen's Lowel lights

By site editor Dan Chung:

It seems like every trade show I go to there is a new wave of LED lights available. Broadcast Asia in Singapore was no exception. There were LED fixtures in all different shapes and sizes from established firms and no-name brands. However the one LED light that I chose to focus on was launched a while ago but I didn’t get a chance to see it properly until now. The Rotolight Anova has the unique ability to control its colour temperature using an Iphone via Wifi. David Toh of Cathay Photo explains more:

On the Tiffen stand was a nice portable light kit from Lowel that was there as a reminder that LED is not the only lighting technology in town. Hotlights can still be a better solution for many news and documentary shooters thanks to their power, portability and light control options.

Other lights that caught my eye included the new Litepanels Inca series of tungsten fresnel type LEDs and the rather interesting Zebralite which allows individual strips of LEDs to be aimed separately.

The boldest exhibitor of the show award surely goes to Korean LED manufacturer DMlight who made this claim for their Lumos range:
