How to use Softy Lite

Softy Lite can be operated on its own standing up right on its side or on its back. It can be placed in small spaces and its cool operation opens up a lot of possibilities.

One of our major aims in designing Softy Lite was that that should be no extrenous light.
No light coming out of the sides or back, so important in Low Key lighting

Light only comes out of the front of Softy Lite

Softy Lite is designed on photographic principles, each switch doubles the light output, 1,2,4,8 corresponding to one, two, three and four stops. So light ouput at one metre goes up 40 Lux , 81 Lux ,157 Lux 300 Lux.

So if you light a scene with all the Softy Lites set at one panel and an exposure of T2 then each increase in light will result in an increase in one stop of exposure

T2 T2.8, T4,T5.6

(T Stops , the T stands for transmission, an f stop is an optical calculation but a T stop is the true amount of light coming out of a lens, in simple lenses the difference is small, but with large complex lenses such as zooms the amount of light absorbed by the glass can be large)

Also possible to get any number of LED panels to light up by different combinations of the four switches

Switch 1
Switch 2
Switch 3
Switch 4
