Skylux LED from Westcott


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 utilize their favorite modifiers with the addition of a single Bowens Mount Speedring.

It's all in the design.
The SkyLux is a beautiful, full-color 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 utilize 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 & 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 minimize 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 utilizing 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 minimizes 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 center of your umbrella-framed modifier.
