LitePad HO+, only 1/3” thick, is perfect as a portable light table or for hand-held macro shots. LitePad HO+ is available in a variety of sizes from 3” circles to 24”x24” squares.


LitePad Axiom is housed in a durable aluminum frame designed for easy mounting onto light stands, clamps and other mounting options in a laboratory environment.


LitePad Loop is a 9” ring light that quickly attaches to any camera, providing shadowless light perfect for the close-up and macro photos needed by forensic analysts.

LitePad is a product of Rosco Laboratories, an industry leader with a 100-year history and offices in eight countries. Already a huge success in the film, television and photography industries, LitePad products are also suited to applications in the forensic sciences. All LitePad devices can be powered by wall outlet, AA batteries, or even the cigarette lighter of a police cruiser. Because they are LED powered, LitePad units can operate longer while using less power, and generate almost no heat. LitePad is daylight color balanced, for faithful color representation (tungsten-balanced units are also available).

Rosco Labs manufactures thousands of products used throughout the film, television, theater and photography industries — from fog machines, to gels, to paint, flooring and props. LitePad is among Rosco's most successful products, selling strongly worldwide since its introduction.

We're Visual Departures, a longtime distributor of Rosco products to the film and photography industry.

We've personally shipped thousands of LitePad units to retailers all over the US since its introduction. We believe so much in the product, we've taken this initiative to bring it to other markets.

We've been in business since 1982, and we've always done right by our customers and our vendors. As part of that circle of trust, we promise not to use your personal information for anything other than explaining how LitePad can help you do your job.
