The T8-7X was built for creative pursuits — from light-painting photography to being used as an in-frame light in video productions. It's surprisingly lightweight, affordably priced, easy-to-use and has built-in Bluetooth so it can be fully controlled wirelessly with the free NANLINK mobile app. Whether you're a beginner who needs an inspiring light or a professional who needs a compact T8 tube for their kit or DMX setup, the PavoTube T8-7X is a unique and compelling option.
50% Thinner, 100% PavoTube
Featuring a standard T8 sized diameter, the PavoTube T8-7X is 50% thinner than most LED tube lights, making it even easier to travel with and fit into tight spaces. The size may be more compact, but the T8-7X has all of the hallmarks that make PavoTubes so desirable: high accuracy with a CRI rating of 96 and a TLCI rating of 97, options for bicolor and colorful RGB hues, dimming, and effects.
Inspiring Pixel Effects
Pixel effects are lively, animated effects that go beyond fades and color changes by adding motion to the mix. The T8-7X has a pixel density of 16 and features the same pixel effects found in our top-of-the-line PavoTube II X-Series LED tube lights. Get creative with 10 eye-catching pixel effects like Rainbow, Multicolor, and Driving, which mimics the lights that pass by when you're inside a moving vehicle. They are all easy to deeply customize and save as reusable presets in the free NANLINK app.
Handheld and Ready to Mount
The base of the T8-7X has an ergonomic handgrip that's ideal for light-painting photography, or when you prefer to hold the light for photo or video shoots. The base also features a 1/4 20 socket so you can easily mount the T8-7X to a tripod or grip equipment, or attach the Nanlite LSFL foldable floor stand (sold separately). You can also attach a Nanlite Eyebolt (sold separately) to hang the light. Both ends of the PavoTube T8-7X are octagonal so you can angle the beam on flat surfaces, and it won't roll away.
Simple to Use and DMX Capable
The T8-7X only has 3 buttons, so it's easy to use even if you've never used professional lights before. The free NANLINK mobile app is also easy to use and it provides much deeper control, and it lets you simultaneously control other Nanlite fixtures. The separately available USB-C to DMX Cable plugs into the USB-C port on the T8-7X and gives you full DMX control through XLR.
Always Have Power
The built-in battery in the T8-7X lasts for 1 hour at 100% brightness and around 3.5 hours at 20% brightness. The USB-C port lets you to plug in external batteries to always keep it running in the field. A USB-C cable is included for charging, and the separately available Nanlite Control Bank supplies extra battery power, more control buttons and a display to adjust settings like green-to-magenta shift without needing to use the app.
