Adaptalux’ miniature lighting studio gets Laser, UV, and Arm-s lighting arms
Adaptalux Studio, the miniature lighting studio launched on Kickstarter in 2015, is on the receiving end of some new special effect lighting attachments called the EFX Lighting Arms. The new lighting arms bring three special effects to Adaptalux Studio: Laser, UV (ultraviolet), and Arm-s (super-bright with a TIR lens).
As with the existing Adaptalux arms, these new EFX Lighting Arms plug directly into the Studio and are flexible enough to be arranged in nearly any position. Adaptalux explains that its UV EFX arm features a purple anodized connector, while the Arm-s has a silver finish connector and the Laser arm has a red finish connector, helping distinguish them from each other and existing arms.
The UV EFX arm features a UV LED coupled with a UV Band Pass Filter, the latter of which is able to filter out 99% of visible light, according to Adaptalux. The Arm-s EFX arm, meanwhile, has a super bright white LED joined by a built-in TIR lens, which “greatly improves the amount of light reaching the subject,” the company explains. Finally, the Laser EFX arm features laser diodes with a focus-able lens to produce a red beam of light.
Adaptalux has 48 hours left in its EFX Lighting Arms Kickstarter campaign, where it’s already raised about $16,000 more than it needed to bring this idea to fruition. But funded or not, backers have 2 more days to get a single pack of either the Laser Arm or Arm-s Arm for a pledge of $50, a single pack with the UV Arm single pack for a pledge of at least $70, or a triple pack with all three arms for a pledge of $160.
Here are video intros to all three of the new arms, embedded for your viewing pleasure:
Shipping to Laser/Arm-s single pack backers is expected to start next April, while UV single pack backer shipments are expected to start in May 2018. To learn more or put down your pledge before the campaign ends, head over to Kickstarter.
