About the Flashpoint CL-198

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

Flashpoint's VariAngle 198A on-camera portable LED light provides action videographers and still photographers who use DSLR's and HD camcorders with a variable angle brilliant beam from a 25° spot to a standard 60° spread. Our LED lights provide visually accurate color temperatures, flicker-free output, and nocolor 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.

The unique variable light can deliver illumination beyond the 16' achieved with a 60° spread with a concentration of light reaching 4470 lumens at 25°.Super lightweight, this 'go anywhere' device fits comfortably atop the hot shoe of your camera or off-camera via the convenient stand thread. The power options uses almost any capacity industry standard Sony type lithium battery cells and can be run off universally available AA's as well. This 198A model offers a clear digital battery power level verification for the ever vigilant. Brightness levels are controlled by stepless control dials on the rear, assure flicker free shooting.

Two interchangeable color panels give instantaneous control between 3200K-5600K to provide lightening fast solutions for the 'run and gun' shooters, moving from one lighting situation to the next environmental Kelvin challenge.

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.
