Manfrotto launches 2-in-1 Lykos 2.0 LED light


Manfrotto has announced the Lykos 2.0, priced from £259.95, a new 2-in-1 daylight and bicolour LED.

Aimed at professional videographers and photographers, the Lykos 2.0 comes in a water-resistant design with a built-in lens for optimal natural lighting.

The Lykos 2.0 also features built-in Bluetooth functionality, enabling you to control light colour and intensity via a Lykos app that is available for both iOS and Android devices.

A dual battery mount supports both Sony L-Type or Canon LP-E6 batteries. The Lykos 2.0 is accessorised with 8 hot shoe mounts, which can connect up to four Lykos 2.0 lights to create a full LED System for larger studio jobs.

The new Manfrotto light comes with its own diffuser and is also compatible with Manfrotto Softbox light diffusers.

You can buy the Lykos 2.0 on its own or in a full professional kit that includes three Lykos 2.0 LED lights, three Nano Photo Stands and two Softboxes, all included in a Manfrotto Pro Light Reloader Tough-55 photographic roller bag.

The Lykos 2.0 kit will be priced at £1,249.95 from its release date in November.
