Hive Lighting Unveils Two New Modular CX-Series Lights

Hive Lighting’s new CX line: The Wasp 100-CX and the Hornet 200-CX

Hive Lighting has just recently announced two new modular CX-series LED lights: The Wasp 100-CX and the Hornet 200-CX. According to the company, the new CX line is “the new affordable version of Hive’s original C Series. The CX models are all single-point source, single shadow, full-spectrum ‘Omni-Color’ LEDs, with full white light and fully saturated color control.”

At the moment, the new line comprises two lights: The Wasp 100-CX, $799 and the Hornet 200-CX, $1,299. Hive Lighting says that the two new lights are very modular “with Fresnel, Par Reflector and theatrical Leko Spot options as well as fully Profoto compatible.” That means they can work with a wide variety of third-party softboxes and modifiers, according to Hive Lighting.
