Litra’s range of LED lights have become very popular over the last few years. Their products fit into that small LED niche accompanied by names such as Lumecube and Gudsen and even Godox, although Litra generally seems to have led the way when it comes to tough and rugged but small LED lights. It appears, though, that this niche space is about to see a big new competitor, in the form of Logitech.
Litra’s waterproof RGBWW LED light, the LitraStudio is currently on sale at B&H for $389.95, discounted from its regular price of $649.95. That’s 40% off the usual cost. The deal ends at midnight EST, so if you’ve been thinking about picking one of these up, this is probably the best deal you’re ever going to find.
If you need a refresher on the LitraStudio and what makes it pretty awesome, here’s our interview with Litra about the light from IBC 2019 when it initially launched.
If you’ve been following the blog, you know we are big fans of the Litra Torch, so we are happy to share that you can now get it for almost 50% off.
If you are unfamiliar with the light, it’s a tiny light (think GoPro session size), which has a very long throw and an incredibly bright beam. You can think about it as a mini flashlight. The cool thing though, is that it is daylight balanced and has a CRI of 90 (not as good as the “standard 95, but good enough for most still and video uses). You can check a short review we did at the bottom of the post.
This light usually sells for $89.95, but right now, B&H is selling it for $49.95; this is almost a two for one deal.
The only caveat is that this is not the “standard” version, but a drone version, so the magnet on the back of the light has been removed, so to not interfere with the GPS. It is still a great bargain if you are looking for this type of action light.
With cameras and lenses out of the way, it’s time to light your scene. So, you’ll need lights. I’ve noticed a distinct trend over the last year towards continuous lights, so while there are some flashes and strobes in this list, we’ve put quite a few of our favourite continuous LED lights in this year’s list, too.
I’ve become a big fan of Litra’s super tough LED lights. We even use the LitraPro LED as an on-camera light when we cover shows. So when I heard that they were bringing out a big, powerful RGBWW LED light, I had to see it for myself. So, we stopped by the Litra stand at IBC 2019 to have a look at it in person, and find out more about it.
Building on the massive success of the LitraTorch and LitraPro LED lights, Litra has now gone beyond bicolour to create the LitraStudio – a rugged and waterproof true RGBWW LED light. It’s significantly larger than the previous Litra lights, but it’s still small enough to toss into your bag for easy portability.
With the size increase comes a nice power increase, too, with a 2,400 Lumen constant output, 3,000 in “Overdrive” mode, or 6,000 in “Flash” mode. Oh yes, it flashes, too.
The original Litra Torch was a very decent little light. Aimed at action and adventure action camera shooters, it offered a lot of punch for its small size. Now, Litra is back with the new Litra Torch 2.0, offering more LEDs, improved CRI and better waterproofing. DIYP caught up with Litra at NAB 2019 to find out more.
At CES today Litra announced their new light, the Litra Torch 2.0 (Amazon). We were lucky enough to get our hands on one of these lights and made a quick comparison to the original Litra Torch. We did an in-depth durability test to the original Torch and were quite happy. If you are considering the Torch for photography or video, you should consider an upgrade. Here is why:
Litra has announced the newest addition to their mobile “action lights” range; the LitraTorch 2.0. The new light brings double number of LEDs up from 8 on the original LitraTorch to 16 in 2.0. Litra says they’ve also made improvements to the CRI (which was already very good), and the LED optics.
The LitraTorch from LITRA has impressed us somewhat here at DIYP. For such a small light, it’s extremely durable and packs quite a punch when it comes to light output. We did a comparison of the LitraTorch against the Lume Cube not too long ago, which you can see down below.
The LitraTorch is pretty inexpensive as it is already, typically retailing for around $75. Today, though, B&H has the LitraTorch on sale for a mere $49.95.
