Gekko To Introduce Lenslite D-SLR Mount At IBC 2011

News Image
An LED-based lighting systems specialist for television and film production, has announced a new D-SLR mount for its established and successful lenslite.
Gekko Technology's D-SLR mount allows direct attachment of the lenslite lamphead to Canon 5D, 7D and Nikon D3 cameras. Fixing directly to the base of the camera via the tripod screw, the mount secures 15 millimetre bars which hold the lamphead on axis around the lens. The base of the mount has an additional fixing so the camera/lenslite combination can still be mounted on a tripod, but with the centre of gravity moved forward for stability.

The new accessory brings to the D-SLR world all the benefits that lenslite provides as a colour-stable and robust professional ring-light. 

“D-SLR cameras such as the Canon 5D have become very popular tools for video content acquisition and look likely to remain so given their versatility,” commented Gekko Technology Founder and Managing Director David Amphlett. “The new lenslite D-SLR mount provides all the benefits of a high-quality solid-state fixture that was once only the domain of much larger professional cameras."
Designed for studio or location production, and with a colour temperature of 5600 kelvin, lenslite delivers 260 foot candles of intensity at a distance of 3 feet. Being a ring-light, it is ideal both as a primary light source or as soft fill.
Gekko Technology’s lenslite can be operated via any 12 volt to 40 volt power source, as generically found within broadcast environments. Accessories include filter stages, gel holder, gel cutting template, adjustable French flag, wireless or cabled dimmers and a remote DMX interface.
