Enough light to go everywhere.
Dream of Daylight power and precision without the heat and maintenance of hot lights? The new Flashpoint CL-1300 LED Panel Light provides 1296 points of soft directed lumination, blending beautifully to create a cool bathe of flattering 5600k daylight. The pristine pure LED glow is pleasant to subjects within close proximity. Subjects are comfortable and ready for action, avoiding irritating breaks for make-up refresh caused by rising studio temperatures. You and they will never sweat another shoot.
The Flashpoint CL-1300 LED Panel Light offers spectacular flexibility in a modular concept. Designed for up to 4 multi-unit array with interlocking ports and series cable. Check out the optional remote control extensions that are integral to the unit's design. You can actually control the intensity of each panel globally and use the remote symmetrically to all units simultaneously. And now you have a superior setup of linking several units for the ultimate 4X4' light wall or complete master LED studio!
Enjoy the freedom of lighting portability. Industry standard 7.2 volt V-mount batteries stand ready to be added to the back of each panel and energize your shoot wherever you desire. The black ABS shell is tough enough for active field use, but amazingly trim and thin for the location pack. Never travel with fear of a loss for efficient light quality with ultimate flex energy saving from AC/DC and pro DC 7.2V batteries that let you work at will.
The latest LED technology.
Uncompromised light quality.
Unheard of value.
One of the brightest advances in technology is the advent of the light-emitting diode (LED), a two-lead semiconductor light source. When an appropriate voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron 'holes' within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the color of the light is determined by the specific energy band gap of the semiconductor.
Impressed yet? No?
LEDs are small, durable and need little power, so they are used in LED strobe lights or continuous camera lights without detrimental heat output, and operate at a safe, low voltage, instead of the 250+ volts commonly found in xenon strobe tube-based lighting. This is especially useful in lighting for videographers, where space is at a premium and bulky voltage-raising circuitry is undesirable.
Each LED gem glows with exceptional brilliance of light and human genius that old Thomas Edison would have surely appreciated.

I have used three of these lights in a studio setting. They were used in five different setups in two- and three-light combinations. They are not too heavy to move around so I was inclined to move them frequently to get the look I wanted as opposed to heavier and more bulky light sources that are less portable. The sliders for power output are excellent and easy to use. The power adapter cord length is long and I did not need to use an extension cord at all. I found nothing lacking in the quality of the construction, the functionality, nor the quality of light. Excellent all around.
The only drawback is that it requires a 1/4 Plus Green gel to color correct it. I cut a sheet and with a little hot glue, attached it in front of the LEDs. The color temperature is then 5600K (was 6300 before). Then, the Amber filter included with it brings it down to 4200K. Brightness was measured (with 1/4 plus green) at 5060 lux @ 1M and 970 lux at 8 feet. The diffuser brought it down to 667 lux. This is around a full stop brighter than other LED lights I examined but costs a lot less! Measurements were made with a Sekonic C-500 color meter. And don't forget to order 1/4 plus green gel.
