Manfrotto has launched new SkyLite Rapid light panels – introducing Midi and Extra Large models – designed for diffusing or reflecting light in location photography.
The new SkyLite Rapid Midi measures 1.5m x 1.5m (5’ x 5’) and the Extra Large version is at 3m x 3m (10’ x 10’).
The square Midi can be mounted on a single light or can be hand held, Manfrotto says. It’s available in kit form or as individual components so that you can build different arrangements with its modular design.
The kit contains: a MIDI frame, 1.25 stop diffuser and silver/white reflector.
Covers available for the Midi frame include: 0.75 stop diffuser, 1.25 stop diffuser, silver/white and silver/black.
Also square, the Extra Large panel is Manfrotto’s largest SkyLite Rapid panel. Because of its size it is too big to be handheld and needs to be supported on stands (using the optional Griphead connector LL LA8446).
Like the Midi, it’s available in kit form or as individual components. The kit contains: an EXTRA LARGE frame and a 1.25 stop diffuser. It also comes in a sturdy rigid carry case.
Covers available for the EXTRA LARGE frame include: 0.75 stop diffuser and a 1.25 stop diffuser.
The SkyLite Rapid Midi and Extra Large join the Small 1.1m x 1.1m (3’6” x 3’6”), Medium 1.1m x 2m (3’6” x 6’6”) and Large 2m x 2m (6’6” x 6’6”) panels in the current range.
The SkyLite Rapid Extra Large kid is priced £385.95, while the SkyLite Rapid Midi kit is priced £311.95.
