Arri is one company that keeps being successful at what they do. Their stuff just works and is extremely reliable. They offer some of the best quality in our field of work and come up with new devices every year. Here’s a new lighting fixture that I found very intriguing.

The L7-C is an LED light that is built to imitate the characteristics of a typical fresnel lens. So it gives you the nice varying beam at a very low weight.
What is special about the L7-C is that you can tune in any color you desire which makes using gels obsolete and gives you full control over your image in a very simple and cost effective way.

The lamp itself is not super affordable, but a great device in its own right.
Litepanels has a similar light with fresnel technology. See their extremely compact Sola LED kit here: LINK

At B&H it costs around $2300 – $2900 depending on the version you buy:
