Litepanels is offering a £450 discount on their Gemini 2×1 soft LED panel, while OSEE is doing a huge 30% OFF on a popular 15″ field monitor. 

It is worth noting that the Litepanels Gemini 2×1 deal is exclusive for UK only, while (as far as I can see) the OSEE deal is worldwide and available directly from their website. More info and links in the paragraphs below.

UK Exclusive Deal on GEMINI 2×1 LED 

A few quite notes – both promotions are unrelated, I just combined them into one post to save you time. As far as I know, the companies have nothing to do with each other. 

In addition, I also want to point out the fact that I am NOT getting paid to promote these deals. I just saw it in my email and on Facebook (the OSEE deal) and figured there may be some of you out there, who can save some money on this awesome production kit. 

However, this post (as with all other posts on this website) may contain affiliate links to B&H or Amazon, which are unrelated to this deal. As many of you know, affiliate links may earn affiliates like myself a small commission on qualifying purchases at no extra cost to you.

What is a Gemini 2×1?

The Gemini 2×1 is a versatile, rugged, and production-class RGBWW soft panel led aimed at cinematographers working in commercials, music videos, and narrative work. It’s in the same class of LED fixture as the ARRI Skypanel S60, KinoFlo Celeb 200 and more recently the Aputure Nova P300c (even though the Aputure is smaller in output area).

The Litepanels Gemini 2×1 is currently priced at £2,975 + VAT in the UK, so £450 off (roughly 15% off) is a good chunk of change. In order to get the £450 discount voucher, you’d have to order the LED light through one of the five participating authorised dealers in the UK listed below in terms and conditions.
