Luxli has announced its new Fiddle Pocket RGBAW LED Light. This is a small-sized on-camera light that could be used for a variety of purposes.
- 5″ RGBAW LED panel
- Internal battery with 3-hour run time
- 2800 – 10,000K CCT range
- Bluetooth 5 equipped with 100 ft. range
- iOS and Android app control
- Extreme color accuracy
- USB Type-C charging
- Multiple operation modes
- LCD display
The Fiddle has a variety of operating modes. The CCT (correlated color temperature) mode lets you set Kelvin temperatures from 2800 to 10,000K. The Filter mode lets you choose from 150 preloaded gels. While the HSL mode lets you produce nearly every hue of the visible spectrum.
Five-Die LED System
The light utilizes Luxli’s unique five-die RGBAW LEDs that are claimed to deliver exceptional accuracy, and rich saturated colors. To assure that the light exactly conforms to Luxli standards of quality, every Fiddle is individually calibrated and tested before it leaves the factory. A serialized photometric calibration result sheet that lists the lux output, CRI, TLCI, and color gamut is included with every light.
Conduct an Orchestra
The Fiddle is the latest light to join Luxli’s Orchestra series, which consists of the Taiko, Timpani, Viola², and Cello. Luxli has designed all of these lights so that they can be synchronized and controlled together or individually through the Composer mobile app via Bluetooth 5 from up to 100 feet away.
Battery & Power
The Fiddle runs on an internal rechargeable battery that is claimed to deliver 3 hours of run time at full brightness. When it’s time to recharge, the USB Type-C connector supports Power Delivery 3.0 so the Fiddle can be quickly recharged from the included wall adapter, a power bank, or a car charger.
The built-in LCD display offers a simple and intuitive interface. In a nice touch, just like a smartphone, the screen automatically rotates, so whether you want the controls on your left or right, the screen will always be right side up. The Fiddle also automatically reassigns the dial functions to match the display’s orientation.
