The GF-Mini Jib is a lightweight, stable, compact jib for camera packages weighing up to 30 kg / 66 lbs. It provides smooth, vibration free movements in tight, confined spaces whether working off a dolly or tripod.
S2 Litemat 1
The S2 LiteMat 1 is based on one “tiled” light engine measuring 9.5 in. x 19 in. (240 mm x 480 mm). The head unit features 288 genuine CineMitter LEDs. The “soft-through-pixelization” method allows the LiteMat 1 to achieve surprisingly bright light levels while remaining under 1 in. (25 mm) thick and weighing just 2.3 lb (1.1 kg).
With the Q-LED, the options are endless. From lighting actors to lighting environments, the versatility is only limited by your imagination. Stack lamps into large arrays to form LED panels of tremendous size and proportion. Light backings with unprecedented energy efficiency. String overhead above diffusions for the perfect sky. No matter the task, Q-LED Linear Lamps are up to the challenge.
