Ikan has announced the Canvas, a full-color bendable LED panel with tuneable RGBWA color control. Almost every light being released these days is RGBW/RGBWW/RGBAW, but flexible panel lights have been a little slower getting to the party.
The Ikan Canvas offers full RGB color control and it is Kelvin color temperature adjustable from 2800-10,000K. The Canvas is compact and lightweight and it only draws 24W of power.
The light has physical dimensions of 20 x 10 x .5″ (50.8 x 25.4 x 1.27cm). So it isn’t quite the size of a traditional 2×1 panel.

The panel light has a wide beam angle of 120-degrees. It uses a patent pending X-holder mount design that allows for quick setups. It also comes with a 5/8″ pin mount so you can tilt the light into any position you want.
