Limelite Mosaic Daylight 30cm LED Panel
£595, $960 www.limelite.uk.com
With a similar size and build to the F&V LED panel, the Limelite also gives you the ability to connect multiple panels together via ethernet cables for synchronised control. Again, it’s mains-powered and you can purchase optional battery packs, but the Limelite also has pushbutton controls with an alpha-numeric display, enabling precise and easily repeatable adjustments.
The panel is available in daylight or tungsten colour temperature (we tested the Daylight version), while a pricier ‘bi-colour’ option costs £835/$1120.
The biggest difference between this and the F&V is in maximum power output, the Limelite being rated at 4200 Lux. In our one-metre test, it enabled an aperture of f/9, proving that it’s a lot more powerful than any of the other panels in the group.
Pros Rugged metal frame; pro features; powerful output. Cons Expensive, especially if you go for the bi-colour panel. We say A gem, with advanced features and mighty power.
The design includes digital pushbutton controls and easy replication of favourite settings
