LituFoto Reveals Range of Portable LED Light Panels

Simon Skinner - 2 years ago

LituFoto is a lighting brand, which, until a recent press release landed in the inbox at PhotoBite Towers, was completely unknown to us. Happy days then as the lighting accessory brand has made itself know by introducing a range of 5 interesting and affordable LED light panels, primarily for those shooting video and photos on the go.

 The new lighting solutions from LituFoto are feature-rich and we’re told, have all been constructed from premium materials. It appears that the lights have been produced historically for ‘other’ brands, so it may be that you have come across versions of the products in different guises, and likely at much higher prices.

Pocket-sized and super-light, the new range of LituFoto panels promise to deliver a powerful source of fill-in light for various genres of photography and filmmaking, providing pro-level results. We’re also told that three of the models on offer, the F18R16 and R18 include high-performance internal power that boasts enough capacity to serve as a power bank to provide charge for mobile devices.

Paul Genge of PhotoTEQ, UK distributor for LituFoto, told PhotoBite: “No larger than a mobile phone, these panels are must-have lighting accessories for photographers, vloggers, filmmakers and content creators on the move. Each model delivers an exceptionally powerful output, and is perfect for discreetly hiding within the background, dramatically lighting products, or for camera-top mounting and filming yourself or your video host. Offering a wealth of features, these LituFoto panels deliver exceptional versatility at a fraction of the cost of similar products.”
