New Generation Lykos 2.0 LED system

New Generation Lykos 2.0 LED system

Lykos lights are a compact lighting solution featuring surface-mounted LED technology and a built-in lens for optimal natural lighting. They're water resistant and can be controlled by the Lykos app for iOS and Android. 

2 models are available, Daylight and Bicolor. The Lykos 2.0 Daylight LED has a colour temperature of 5600K and is perfect for cooling down skin tones and for in-studio still life photography or videography. The Lykos 2.0 Bicolor features whiter, warmer LEDs, and is ideal for giving skin that extra warmth. This model is also the perfect fit for outdoor interviews, fashion or street style images and video footage.

The Daylight version has an illuminance of 1600lux@1m whereas the Bicolor 1500lux@1m. 

Both models use surface-mounted LEDs to ensure greater power efficiency, more consistent colour, flicker-free illumination and improved working life. The LED control panel at the back of the devices enables easy monitoring of dimming levels and battery status.

Manfrotto’s Lykos 2.0 LED lights are compatible with Manfrotto Softbox light diffusers and are provided with a set of professional gel filters or diffuser to help create the desired colour temperature.

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced.

These Nitrotech video heads feature continuous counterbalance for precise control when filming. These new models, the 608 and 612, feature brand new fluid for more realistic cinema style footage.
