Hive announces new CX series Lights

Hive Lighting has released the new CX line of lights starting with the Wasp 100-CX & Hornet 200-CX. These are omni-color LED lights which are new and improved versions of the original Wasp 100-C & Hornet 200-C and come in at a lower price point.

The Wasp 100-C uses 75 watts to create 320FC at 5ft/1.5M (F14 at 800ISO). The 100-CX is compatible with all Hive C-Series and Profoto® modifiers and features a new enhanced Bluetooth range in the same premium aerospace-grade aluminum body as all C-Series products.
