Photographers that use the GoPro range of action cameras may be interested in a new LED lighting system which has been created by Litra and aptly named the LitraTorch.
The LitraTorch has been designed to be a versatile adventure ready LED light that can be used for capturing video footage when using a smartphone, action camera or just when you need some extra light on the situation.
Watch the video below to learn more about this compact torches features which include its ability to fit a GoPro Session frame or GoPro mounting system if required.
Litra is a small team of engineers, designers, manufacturers and outdoor enthusiasts who have worked together for over 8 years. Each member has more than 20 years of professional experience in helping bring lifestyle, consumer electronics and lighting products to market for top tier brands. Two years ago Litra endeavored to combine our experience and passion into our own innovative and fun products.
We set out to create the world’s brightest and most versatile, adventure ready LED light. A light that could keep up with unbridled creativity and imagination. A light that would enable amazing moments never before captured in low or no light conditions. Our mission was to create a:
– Best in class mobile light for photo and video professionals
– Best in class light for everyday tasks at home, at work, with a smart phone and for walking and biking
– Best in class light for outdoor enthusiast and extreme athletes
A key design criteria was to make sure the light could go anywhere a GoPro Session 4 (and now 5) camera can go – literally!
– Fit into the GoPro Session Frame and GoPro mounting system
– Match or exceed waterproof and drop test specifications
– Light beam angle complements camera lens’ wide angle
– Match battery life
We wanted to make the Torch the “Swiss Army Knife” of lights so we designed in:
– TWO 1/4 20 standard camera mounts to allow for flexible mounting orientations
– MAGNET built into the body to quickly mount to a car hood, tail gate, pole etc
– FILTERS for photographic, dive and mood effects = serious photos or serious fun!
– SOFT LIGHT with a diffusion cap for a lantern like glow
– QUICK CLIP for a simple and secure way to mount to a belt or backpack
