The Lowel GL-1 Power LED is a compact handheld light source that is ideal for any type of event or location photography that demands portability, flexibility and ease of use. The GL-1's ergonomic appeal is readily apparent, from the rubberized exterior to the lockable trigger that enables dimming from 5.0-100%. The removable, rechargeable battery is located at the base for precise balance and its flat underside and low-profile feet allow placement on a table or other flat surface. There's also a 1/4"-20 threaded socket for tripod mounting.
The GL-1's flexible qualities begin with the focusing head with a 5:1 spot-to-flood ratio that allows you to back light or hair light your subject or pull back to add some fill light when needed to open up the shadows. The trigger-controlled dimming and a thumb-operated light intensity dial allows 1 hand operation for multi-tasking scenarios. The GL-1 comes with the light head, battery, multi-voltage charger and AC adapter. Its 3,000K output can be cooled to 5,300K for use in daylight with the purchase of an optional filter that mounts to the GL-1's 82 mm front screw thread.
