Lupo’s new ultrapanel range Basically bright superpanel. The Superpanel series was already ridiculously bright, but now Lupo has extended it to create more output.
Lupo claims that they have double the output of the existing superpanel. Ultrapanels are using a new generation of LEDs, however, the Lupo is still able to hold power draws like the superpanels. This means you can run the UltraPanel 1 × 1 version with a single 14V battery.
Different versions of Lupor Ultrapanel are available:
All light Kelvin color temperature adjustable from 2800-6500K. Lupo claims that thanks to its exclusive True Color technology, ultrapanels have a perfect color output and do not create color casts.
Let go of the beast
Lupo Lite has always been known for their high output and the Superpanel series which was first announced in September 2016 has redefined what can be expected from a 1 × 1 size panel.
So how much output does the new ultrapanel have? Well, let’s find out.
Ultrapanel dual color 30 hard 1m / 3.3 ′ 72,000 lx output is claimed. It outputs an insane amount with a beam angle of 40 সহ with a 2 W 1 power draw from a 1 × 1 size panel.
The UltraPanel Dual Color 30 Soft has a claimed output of 9,500 lux at a distance of 1m / 3.3. Again, this is a ton output from a 1 × 1 size panel with a 220W power draw 120 সহ with a beam angle.
If you need more output, UltraPanel Dual Color 60 Hard and UltraPanel Dual Color 60 Soft cover you.
The Ultrapanel Dual Color 60 Hard is claimed at 140,000 lux at 1m / 3.3 ′ distances and over 19,000 lux at 3m / 9.94. This comes from a 140,000 lx 400W power draw Just like the ultrapanel dual color 30 hard, the angle of the beam is 40 ° To put this output in context, the Lupo SuperPanel Dual Color 60, which I reviewed earlier on the site, had an output of 67,000 lx at 1m / 3.3. As another comparison, Crimsource Vortex 8 RGBW2 × 1 which I reviewed had an output of 73,200 lx when used at 5600K.
The Ultrapanel Dual Color 60 Soft has a claimed output of 17,000 lux at 1m / 3.3 ′ distance and more than 2,000 lux at 3m / 9.94. Just as the ultrapanel dual color 30 is soft, the angle of the beam is 120 ° By comparison, when the Rotolite Titan X2 was used at 5600K, its active diffusion was set to 100% (150 degrees) and its output was 6030 lx.
Size and weight
Now that I have told you what the claimed output for ultrapanels is, let’s see how big they are and how much they weigh.
The Ultrapanel Dual Color 30 Hard and Ultrapanel Dual Color 30 Soft both have 335 x 320 x 100 mm / 13.18 x 12.5 x 4 inch scissor dimensions and weigh 3.7 kg / 8.15 lbs.
The Ultrapanel Dual Color 60 Hard and Ultrapanel Dual Color 60 Soft have dimensions of 50 x 340 x 110 mm / 25 x 13 x 4 inches and weigh 9 kg / 19.5 lbs.
All new ultrapanel models work with cheap and widely available 14.8V batteries Lupo offers a range of battery powered accessories for all UltraPanel models and all other LED panels and Fresnel LEDs. The lights also have Bluetooth long range, DMX, RDM and onboard controls.
The ultrapanel dual color series has a technopolymer body, reinforced with carbon fiber, making them strong and suitable for wide field work. All Lupo lighting products are available with a pole-powered yoke for use in television studios.
The light has adjustable dimming curve, 3 presets and various lighting effects.
The lights don’t come standard with V-lock plates, but you can buy a kit that has a battery, V-lock plate and a D-tap cable in the loop.
Price and availability
The Lupo Ultrapanel will be officially announced in the next few months.
