Becky's a creator working from her Brooklyn home studio, and her partner Smokey is a cinematographer in TV and film. Together they love renting out their best gear to fellow local creatives. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions! We have a Panasonic GH5s and a bunch of micro four thirds lenses, which also fit on our DJI Osmo x5R, which comes fully kitted including a CrystalSky monitor. We also have a fully accessorized Osmo x3 camera including an interchangeable gimbal to turn the handle into an Osmo Mobile (stabilized phone holder). Our Litemats are incredibly versatile and lightweight LED panels with adjustable color-temp, and come with c-stands and shot bags. For audio, we've got a Sennheiser wireless lavalier kit and a Rode VideoMic Pro. Consider us your one-stop shop for lightweight productions like interviews, web videos, and tabletop product videography.

S2 LiteMat 2 - High CRI Bi-color LED Panel

Building on the success of the original LiteMat, with its thin and ultra lightweight housing, soft color-correct Hybrid (bi-color) output, and convenient mounting options, the S2 LiteMat takes lighting to the next level. The new S2 LiteMat is nearly 40% brighter than the original LiteMat, has better color quality, and a widely extended Kelvin range all without an increase in power draw. In addition, overall CRI increased to 95+ with a matching TLCI of more than 95 as well. With all of these tremendous advancements, S2 LiteMat remains compatible with all existing LiteDimmers, LitePower supplies, and cables. LiteMat walks the line between a complete, ready-to-shoot system and a DIY light source. With its set of predefined accessories, it can serve the needs of DPs, gaffers, and lighting technicians looking for a more turn-key setup. Conversely, the LiteMat head unit, with its Kino Flo®-compatible mounting system, offers great flexibility with its lightweight and modular design and high light output, allowing the LiteMat to serve as the heart of your next great idea. You can easily make your own accessories or simple soft boxes, customized light banks, or even your own Chinese lantern.

OWNER NOTES

Designed for plug and record operation with fully self-configuring digital operation, the AVX Camera-Mountable Lavalier Pro Digital Wireless Set from Sennheiser is well suited for film and video production, as well as electronic news gathering (ENG) and A/V rental houses. The system consists of the EKP receiver, SK bodypack transmitter, and an MKE2 lavalier microphone. The AVX system provides a variety of automatic functionality aimed at flexibility and speed including auto-dynamic range settings, which automatically adjusts the audio level to a recording device's input sensitivity, reducing distortion and eliminating the need to adjust your mic's level. The system also offers link protection, a feature that quickly scans available frequencies and will automatically switch before any interference becomes audible. The EKP receiver has a compact design that plugs directly into the XLR input on your camera or recording device and includes the necessary adapters for use with DSLR cameras. Additionally, the EKP can swivel, allowing it to be used with other attachments mounted to a camera. It powers on and off automatically when it senses 48V from your recording destination, for fast recording and saving battery life when not in use.

OWNER NOTES

Everything in this kit works great and is like new. This gimbal/camera requires the use of a mobile device (not included) running the DJI GO app for iOS or Android. My kit includes the X3 camera/gimbal as well as the Osmo Mobile gimbal for stabilizing your mobile device. The handle base is interchangeable between the two gimbal heads. The included flexi mic provides better reference audio than the internal one, but it's still not great (in my opinion). Consider adding my lavalier microphone (separate listing).

No setup manual is included. Please check out the quickstart guide:

Becky and Smokey made pickup-return super easy, and were promptly available for questions during rental. Excellently maintained package, thanks guys!

They were great! Easy to rent and very helpful! Def. coming back!

Renting gear from them went great. If you're driving to pick up gear then there's pretty easy parking around the area just not in front, unless you're willing to pay for meters. The gear was in great condition and had a pelican case to protect it. Everything was organized when received and was easy to locate during a shoot. 100% would rent from them again.

Becky and Smokey were great! It was easy to schedule pick up and drop off and they should me how to use the equipment when I picked it up.

Easy and professional pickup and dropoff, clear and polite coordination. Equipment was in great condition and neatly labeled and wrapped. Was a pleasure to rent from Becky and Smokey. Thanks guys!

Excellent communication. Very easy rental, would definitely rent from here again!

Easy and accommodating, would absolutely rent from them again. Everything worked great.

The gear was in great shape and Becky worked with me to make my pick-up and drop-off convenient. I'd rent from them again!

Second time renting from Becky and yet again everything went perfectly. Great gear in pristine condition and very simple process. Thanks!

Everything I rented from Becky- camera, lenses and a mic- was in pristine condition; the kit was neatly packed, batteries charged, cards cleaned etc when I picked and the equipment is exactly as described. Becky was wonderful to deal with and I'll be renting again from her again soon.

Becky and Smokey were knowledgeable, available, and friendly to boot!

Easy to find, they were awesome!!

Becky & Smokey are RAD... and the mic was flawless. Will rent from them again.

Camera works perfectly, the batteries and SD cards that come with the camera save me both money and time (from renting them separately), and Becky & Smokey are super nice!

First time renting on KitSplit. Becky is great! She went through all the gear and ran through how everything worked. Her DJI Osmo kit includes a lot (batteries, mobile extender, sd cards, etc).

Becky was an absolute pleasure to work with! Took the time to explain the equipment in great detail and was super friendly and accommodating. Will definitely rent from Becky again. Thanks!!

Great! Super easy pick up and return. Becky is awesome!

Once again, totally awesome rental! Easy going, friendly and communicative!! I highly recommend renting from @bekathwia!!

Camera is in good condition. Lots of batteries and accessories come with it. Thanks!

Easy to work with, easy communication, gear in good shape. Thanks again!

Never ended up needing the gear, but she was super responsive and helpful.

Lights are in good shape. Will rent again!

Becky is totally awesome and was great to rent from!!! Planning on renting from her again A LOT! Thanks!!!

Equipment was in perfect condition and the pick up/drop off was smooth as 1,2,3!

Becky was really great throughout the process! Very quick responses, helpful, and extremely friendly. Took the time to explain the camera and how to operate it. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to rent on Kitsplit.

Mic worked great, and Rebecca was easy to schedule with, flexible about pick-up and drop-off, and a super lovely person all around. Would definitely rent from her again.
