Loving the Luxli Cello RGBAW LED Light, Perhaps Not for Its Designed Purposes (yet), in my Sprinter Van it Solves a Need

Get Luxli Cello at B&H Photo.

Home late yesterday after a grueling 210 miles, tonight I just tried the about $399 Luxli Cello tonight in my Mercedes Sprinter photography adventure van. It’s way cool and fills several needs I’ve had since I got my van:

  • It offers an enormous array of color combinations, but my favorite is pure red, which does not wreck night vision or trigger the anti-sleep reflex as does bluish light. And yet, a college student might run it on blue or bluish to help stay awake.
  • It is designed with a CRI (color rendering index) of 95 and TLCI of 97, so it can be used for still or video photography for accurate color rendition, coming with a hot-shoe mount (and tripod mount). And yet it can reproduce a myriad of other colors as well.
  • I’ve been looking for a remote-controllable red light source that will light up the van interior nice and bright for night-time, something that won’t disturb my night vision—the red mode does that very nicely over a soothing just barely there for night-time to quite bright
  • From outside the van I can turn on light inside the van using my iPhone. Very nice when hauling a few 5-pound trout and a fishing pole and a pack and camera.
  • Since it is battery powered with a standard (and included) Sony NPF battery, it can be used indoors or outdoors and mounted on a tripod also.

My daughter (heading to college this fall), is begging me to get one for her. Maybe I will—her flute performance today was magnificent, drawing a stream of compliments.

The picture below is missing one thing: the Luxli Cello has a nice quality rear LCD also, to control the light without the app.
