Digital Juice Bursts Onto Lighting Scene With All-New Portable LED Lights

Introducing the MiniBurst 128 & MiniBurst 256 super-bright production lights (March 02, 2012)
DMN Newswire--2012-3-2--Digital Juice® announced today that it is expanding its DJ Gear line of products to include two new portable on-camera LED lighting options - the MiniBurst 128 and the MiniBurst 256. Lightweight and durable, the MiniBurst LEDs provide a continuous stream of bright 100W equivalent light for the 128 model and 200W equivalent light for the 256 model, making them perfect for wedding and event videography, on-location on-camera interviews, vacation footage and on the go shots of all kinds.


Powered by industry-standard Sony NP-F type rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, MiniBurst LEDs can run for over 6 hours on one charge without losing their cool. They can also be powered directly from an electrical outlet with the provided 12v AC power supply. Each light also comes with a hotshoe swivel mount for on-camera use, warming and diffusion filters, an attractive deluxe carry case, battery charger unit with additional car charger adapter, as well as an on-board dimmer switch to vary the light intensity as needed.


The attractive heavy duty powder-coated aluminum case is designed to protect the inner workings of the light from the bumps and rigors of the road. "We know first-hand what its like to have a light go down while on location so we wanted our LEDs to withstand the rigours of field use," says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. "Besides the durable design, we also wanted two ¼"-20 mounting holes, one on the top of the light and one on the bottom, so the lights can be mounted to a variety of industry-standard mounting platforms such as articulating arms, shoe mounts, mini clamps, tripods, C-stands and more. You can even double the light intensity by stacking the MiniBurst lights on top of each other."

Key Features

  • Ultra bright LED bulbs - Steady, continuous light that is brighter, cooler and more portable than units costing twice as much.
  • Long lasting and portable - These lights run for hours on standard Sony NP-F type rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries so you can travel far from an available power source without worrying about missing a shot.
  • Mountable warming and diffusion filters - These filters allow you to match tungsten light sources and diffuse the light when needed. They slide easily into a built-in filter holder on the light unit.
  • Dimming capability - The dimmer knob on the back of the unit allows you to vary the intensity from 10% to 100%, depending on your shooting situation.
  • Heavy-duty aluminum case - Rugged powder coated aluminum construction protects the bulbs and circuitry from the bumps of the road.
  • Hotshoe swivel mount - You can easily mount either light to the top of most cameras for ENG reporter-style shooting.
  • Battery plate compatibility - Use your existing Sony NP-F type rechargeable Li-Ion camera batteries interchangeably with the MiniBurst lights.
  • 12v AC Power Supply Adapter - MiniBurst lights can be plugged directly into a standard AC outlet to power the unit for longer shoots.
