The Rosco LitePad HO+ (high output) is an LED light panel that projects light inward to give a soft and more evenly filled light source rather than projecting light directly out for the more common directional throw that LEDs typically give. The lights are a thin acrylic panel, which makes them extremely light weight, super durable, and even water resistant. The LED lights are located around the circumference of the LitePad and point inwards to a special grid design. Rosco LitePads are cool to the touch and have a life of over 60,000 hours.
So that you don’t lose light output with Gels, a tungsten version of the Rosco LitePad HO+ is now also available. Rosco LitePads have an optional Axiom housing that provides you with mounting options, more durability, and a place to hold your Rosco gels. Without the Axiom housing, they are listed as simply HO+ products. The LitePads are groundbreaking for videographers, photographers, and filmakers that need extremely soft lights that are versatile, lightweight, generate no heat, draw little power, can be battery operated, easy to transport, and durable.
Here are some other videos from Rosco talking about their products:
The 12X12 LitePad is a Rosco staple, especially when creating a 3 point light setup. Coupling the 12X12 (key) with their 3X12 (fill) and 3X12 (rim) gives off an extremely clean look to create an evenly lit subject. Rosco LitePads not only come in an assortment of 6 standard sizes, they are also customizable so you can order according to whatever shape and size you need to get the job done perfectly. These LitePads have been used from everything to Dior store fronts to the big screen. The tiny sizes that these powerful lights come in make Roscos really fantastic for product photography. The small 3X6 is also ideal for vehicle shots and can be easily mounted on the dash of a car to light up the driver.

The Digital Shooter’s Kit that we’re using in the video includes a wide assortment of accessories such as dimmers, battery packs, mounting brackets and adapters. The kit came with several LED panels, along with stands, dimmers, gel packs, and more in a convenient rugged case.

When shooting in the field, rather than carrying around your usual LED light on camera, a 3X6 Rosco is a great alternative. It’s lightweight, only 0.3″ of an inch thick and less offensive (than typical LED lights) when pointing at your subjects. It’s very easy on the eyes, diffuses well, and is also dimmable. If you opt to pass on the Axiom housing, the HO+ LitePad alone will run you less than $150. The Rosco LitePads won’t outpower some of the other LED Panels on the market, but the diffusion and quality of light from the Rosco LitePad HO+ is far greater. The light given off is in effect more full, softer and fills more space.
Diffusion – Easy on the Eyes
These are great lights for their versatility, and we love how they can be powered with just common batteries (even AA batteries). Dimmable, featherweight, and in many different sizes to fit your needs. The 12″ square panel we used worked great, but rosco also has a 12″ circle, or even a 24″ square panel as an even broader and softer light source.
