Tweet To Win This Light!
Here is another Twitter give away from Cinema5d. I nabbed this at NAB and wanted to get it in the hands of a Cinema5d viewer. This is the Litepanels MicroPro. It uses six “AA” batteries and comes with an on camera hot shoe mount with a ¼ -20 thread to mount on a light stand. It will also come with a carrying pouch. I personally use these lights all the time. They are dimmable and pack quite a punch. We are working hard with our sponsors to bring these promotions to you. To show our appreciation for your support. It is YOU the viewers that make Cinema5D the #1 HDSLR site in the world!

For our latest edition of “Drop Test”, we decided to go with something a little more practical. A Litepanels MicroPro. At first glance the MicroPro seems too large for an on camera light, as opposed to its baby brother the Litepanels Micro. The MicroPro also runs on AA batteries and is considerably larger than the standard Micro. I have used the Micro for some time, as it is a great portable little light. I had always wanted to try the MicroPro to see if it was too big. We ended up Drop Testing the Litepanels MicroPro three times in our test. It kept on going each time. Everyone on the crew thought it would break apart. We were all quite pleased that it kept working after the Drop Tests. This little portable light is great for on-camera work and will do just as well mounted to a stand. After passing our Drop Test we can highly recommend the Litepanels MicroPro. This light is indestructible!

Litepanels has a limited rebate offer on the Micro and MicroPro. The Litepanels Micro is one of the best on-board lights available on the market. Powered by â€œAAâ€ batteries and cool to the touch these little lights pack a punch for the money. The Micro will run you around $215 with the rebate, and the MicroPro will cost less than $400 with a $75 rebate.
The downside is the plastic housing and flimsy dimmer knob. However I have yet to see a battery powered light with such portability and output for this price.
