Light enough to go anywhere.
Enough light to go everywhere!

Flashpoint's Reporter 150 LED portable light provides action videographers and still photographers who use DSLR's and HD camcorders with 900 lux output from a generous 60° spread and the added feature of a pocket size Smartphone footprint with a self contained rechargeable battery.

With superior sleek design, this 'go anywhere' device combines beauty and light efficiency. Additional, the svelte LED has a 4000maH lithium battery that offers a convenient solution for the 'run and gun' shooters, reporters and anyone moving from one lighting situation to the next ambient challenge. Complete manual control of flicker free brightness levels are adjusted by a control dial on the side edge. Advanced circuitry maximizes efficient battery use. The micro USB port charger does the job in a jiffy.

Our LED lights provide visually accurate color temperatures, flicker-free output, and no color shift when dimming. When used outdoors, the small, self-contained LED light produces copious fill light to alleviate deep shadows, while blending ambient available light to add modeling to subjects.

This pocket Reporter LED marvel real shines in our portable product line, with reasonable output, superior sleek design and cool look.

The latest LED technology.
Uncompromised light quality.
Unheard of value.

Qliq Qwip
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.

badly engineered

The light is probably fine, but the bracket is poorly thought out. The screws to fasten it to the camera and to the light run out of thread before becoming snug. The bracket can either extend in front of the camer, on top; or to one side from underneath. In the latter case the only way to get it properly fastened to the camera is for the light to be below the bracket, not on top.

I struggled to figure the thing out for a long time and consulted an engineer friend - who was no more successful. The directions are so minimal as to be useless. I cannot tell if the light itself is of any use because I've used it only once as a result of these problems.

Super compact led light

By

from New York, NY

I use this product on my video for about 4 to 6 feet coverage. It's sufficient enough. And it's so light that you're almost carrying nothing at all. I love this product and will buy it again if i need additional brightness.

LIght is what we need

By

from NEW YORK

I use three of these in a portable large format (8x10 camera)portrait light kit. These light have several advantages for me: They are small, powerful and rechargeable,hence I can use them when traveling without worrying about AC voltages (Europe)or have to carry lots of rechargeable batteries. Also, they are easy to mount on stands or clamps and I use simple squares of black cardboard as flags/barndoors. The light output is remarkably efficient. Plenty of power to work with the fastest film stock I use in my portraits (100ASA). The ratio between the three lights I use is easily achievable as they have a built in dimmer. These panels also come with multi-voltage charger and a bunch of mounting hardware. These lights won't light up a building but if you do portraiture you'll find them invaluable, both as main lights or as accent/fill lights in addition to the rest of you kit. This is what I call GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY !!

Powerful light,but....

By

from Clinton Twp.,MI

I bought 2 of these as an alternative to the off-camera flashes I normally shoot with. I really like the solid,compact feel of them. They are really rather bright for their size.The accessorie swivel-tilt mount is well thought out and robust. The snap on diffuser does very little to soften the light, but I use it to hold gels that I have cut to fit. In this role, it works great. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars, is after using at full power for a short period of time,(10-15 min), the units get very hot. I'm going to keep an eye on them in the future and limit the time they are on.

Fantastic product

By

from san jose, ca

This light is not exclusive to video applications. I find it extremely useful in macro photography as soft fill light. The problem with ring speedlight is sometimes the light is too direct and too harsh. This provides just enough fill to open up shadow areas. This should not be used as a main light but for quick and simple setup and not wanting to attach and set ring light it's just about the perfect device.

Great Product

By

from East Roselle, NJ

This is a great product, it is small yet it is very strong. It really adds lots of light while taking photos thus making the color of the picture more livid.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

george a  will this work on a Nikon 1 V1?
ADAM I  Depends what you mean by work. It should slide in to the flash shoe and if you turn it on it will light up. And to the extent you're using the camera in an automatic metering mode it should expose properly for the amount of light the Flashpoint is shedding on your subject. Other than that, there's nothing else to "work." - This is not a TTL flash that needs to sync with the camera in any way - it's simply a camera mountable lamp.
Shopper  How long does battery last and charging time ?
bob c  What is the effective working range (in feet)? Why do I have to use iso over 3200 indoors, really slow shutter speeds and max apeture?
GABRIEL S  I rely on it up 20 feet at full power. (when shooting Dancing from a ladder)
