Providing bright, daylight-balanced, continuous LED lighting in a practical, rugged package, Westcott's Skylux system is ideal for both photographers and videographers (and of course: those who indulge in both). Packing over 1000W-equivelant of power the Skylux outshines almost every other LED head on the market and illuminates subjects in flicker-free, daylight balanced light, adjustable from 30 to 100%. Of particular interest to those seeking a portable lighting solution, the Skylux is sturdy, quick and easy to set up, compact and does not utilise lamps which are susceptible to damage in transit. Furthermore, the head can be fitted with your existing light modifiers via a Bowens S-Type speedring and features an integral umbrella mount.

The next big thing in LED studio lighting is here - Meet the SkyLux from Westcott. The first daylight-balanced studio LED with a CRI Rating of 94+ that allows photographers to utilise their favourite modifiers with the addition of a single Bowens Mount Speedring.
It's all in the design - The SkyLux is a beautiful, full-colour spectrum of light housed in a high-quality, compact, all-metal unit, which embodies a unique design with a flat front panel to protect the LED light source. Meaning, there's no protruding bulb or globe to shatter.
Built to use modifiers of all sizes - The durable construction allows photographers to utilise their largest modifiers, like the Westcott 7' Octabank, with the simple addition of a Bowens Mount S-Type speedring. The Bowens S-Type mount allows for the usage of softboxes, umbrellas, snoots, barn doors and gels.
Built-in diffusion panel - The built-in diffusion panel allows photographers to shoot without adding a modifier and still achieve a beautiful, soft, and consistent output.
Recessed LED - The frosted and diffused LED source is recessed for a shadow free output.
LED impact resistance - The LED source plate is spring mounted to ensure protection of the LED's if impact should occur.
Simple and easy to setup and use - Control the output of the SkyLux from 30% to 100% with the rear seamless control dial.
Keeping things compact - The accompanying external ballast aids to minimise the size of the SkyLux unit by moving large components away from the SkyLux housing.
Extended cables - Extended cables ensure a versatile and mobile SkyLux unit in the studio.
Long lifespan - Unlike units utilising halogen or tungsten bulbs, the SkyLux gives off little heat with it's unique LED design and has a lifespan of over 50,000 hours.
Internal fan - Photographers will find an internal fan to keep the unit cool, but don't worry about the sound for video. The SkyLux has virtually zero sound while in operation. The quiet fan and flicker free LED technology is a perfect setup for videographers.
Metal construction - Solid, all-metal tilter-bracket and umbrella mount minimises the number of hardware components to carry around.
It's all in the details - An umbrella hole can be found in the supplied parabolic reflector allowing the SkyLux to be positioned directly in the centre of your umbrella-framed modifier.
