Light enough to go anywhere.
Enough light to go everywhere.
The new Flashpoint 500R LED Studio Kit. The simple and sure way to light like a pro with the ease and comfort of LED technology. We include 2 sleek circular 500 count LED lights and 2 of our famous 7' black aluminum 3 section stands, and2 dimmer remote controllers.
The Flashpoint LED 500 follows traditional round reflector design in a modern brilliant LED source. The soft, flattering glow is perfect for lighting people for portraits, interviews, or fashion, with or without the included fitted diffusion cloth. The circular array creates pleasing illumination and naturally round catch lights, imitating sun lit highlights. While extremely brilliant and efficient, the 500 LED bulbs stay cool, keeping your subjects comfortable, even when used close-up. Color is consistent and flicker free at 5600K daylight even while dimming down to 10%. And, light output from 10-100% can be remotely controlled for less intrusive presence on the set. You can achieve soft box 'shoot through' quality by using the included elastic rimmed cloth diffuser. An umbrella channel is built into the adjustable mount when you want to soften and spread the light even further.
The Flashpoint LED500 goes anywhere. The super tough LED's are powered by AC adapter and DC, with optional accessories. With a lamp hour life of 50,000 you can enjoy trouble free, economical use for years and years.
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) is a two-lead semiconductor light source. When a appropriate voltageis 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 energy band gap of the semiconductor.
Impressed yet? No?
LEDs are small, durable and need little power, so they are used in hand held devices such as flashlights. LED strobe lights or continuous camera lights, operate at a safe, low voltage, instead of the 250+ volts commonly found in xenon strobe tube-based lighting. This is especially useful in cameras on mobilephones, where space is at a premium and bulky voltage-raising circuitry is undesirable.
What is quite amazing is the placid acceptance we have to such a dramatically different illumination source than to the commonplace tungsten/halogen and fluorescent tubes we once took for granted.
Each LED gem glows with exceptional brilliance of light and human genius that old Thomas Edison would have surely appreciated.
