A professional lighting unit with barndoors that provides an even focusing beam. Also available is the Lumelite, a mini light that packs a punch and is a great complement to any shoot.

Innovative LED Lighting for Stills and Video

LEDs have come a very long way from simple uses as indicator lights on your audio and video equipment to a dominant position in the field of signage and display in large public venues. Since developing technology has helped to overcome their initial high cost of production, they are now poised to supplant fluorescent lamps in our homes.

Lowel Prime 400 LED Lights

The Lowel Prime 400 light is a professional LED panel that’s perfectly suited to any project that requires high quality, bright studio lighting, be it photography or video. Like all LED models, the light draws very little power and runs both quietly and coolly.

Studio Lighting

Electronic Flash - Electronic flash is daylight balanced (5500K, or Kelvin) and can be used for almost any studio application.

HDSLR Video Lighting

This all depends on what type of lighting system you currently own. If you are shooting with tungsten or other form of continuous lighting, you’re in the game. If you’re shooting with electronic flash, the news isn’t as good unless you plan on shooting video one frame at a time. Strobes are simply the wrong tools for capturing video.
