iKan Lyra LED Light

The new Lyra LEDs are designed to project a wide, 110-degree beam of soft light on your subjects using a built-in ½-stop diffusion panel. The Lyra is bi-color and adjustable from 3200K to 5600K with a consistent brightness as you adjust its color temperature. It delivers the equivalent of a 400-watt incandescent light source. The light sports a 30-degree angled yoke with steel tension knobs to keep it securely locked into place once you’ve adjusted it. The light can be dimmed via DMX remote or using the control on the back of the panel. You’ll find an industry-standard combo pin (a baby 5/8-inch or a junior 1 1/8-inch) and a right-angle receiver hole for mounting the Lyra to a light stand. Barn doors are included. The LBX5 model has rectangular dimensions while the LBX10 is a square foot and packs a bit more oomph with an output equivalent to 850 watts of incandescent light. Daylight-only variants of these two lights are also available.

PRICE: $480 (LBX5); $840 (LBX10)
