The Hobolite Iris boasts a sleek, IP54-rated aluminium body wrapped in vegan leatherette, perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. Its unique aperture ring allows creators to adjust from a focused beam to a wide glow, lighting stories with precision and flair.

With a colour range from 2700K to 6500K and high CRI and TLCI ratings of 96+, the Iris ensures true-to-life colour rendering. Innovative optical modifiers, a magnetic accessory system, and a built-in battery enhance the creative experience, allowing for extended use without constant recharging.

“As creators, our journey begins within ourselves—embracing our vision, our voice,” states Helena Bian, Founder and CEO of Hobolite. “With the new Hobolite Iris, we empower creators to explore the magic of light and its impact on the creative process. By aligning the aperture of our lens with the iris of our artistic vision, we paint with the integrity of our own inner light.”

The Hobolite Iris is available in two kits to optimize creativity right out of the box. The Iris Standard Kit includes the Iris light, Adjustable Lens, Frosted Dome, USB cable, V-Mount Plate, and a stylish protective pouch. The adjustable lens offers a range from 20 to 45 degrees with a 6x brightness boost for exceptional illumination.

The Iris Creator Kit includes everything in the Standard Kit, plus an Aperture Ring, Gel Filters, Magic Lens, and a Fresnel Lens f/28mm.
