The LoCaster 2 Plus Kit from ARRI is a lightweight location lighting solution that offers multiple control options for precise color rendering with increased output. Building on the foundation of the original LoCaster, the LoCaster 2 Plus features 35% greater brightness, adjustable color temperature, light weight, full dimming and the AC and battery options sought after by location shooters. ARRI uses a 8.58 x 3.77 x 2.75″, 35W LED array with a prismatic homogenizing lens to produce a 63° beam angle that performs like a single source luminaire without the multiple shadows that plague some other fixtures.
The LoCaster 2 Plus offers a substantial amount of control as compared to other lights; adjustments are executed with simple knobs on its back panel. Color temperature is variable from 2800K to 6500K, and you can tweak the full minus and full plus green as well, taking care of most of your filtration preferences without taping a single gel to the unit. Dimming from 0-100% is just as easy using another knob. The LEDs are virtually heat-free, eliminating worries about the comfort of the talent, while the panel’s rated 50,000 hour lamp life makes the LoCaster practically maintenance-free.
