Made of durable lightweight metal, the Pro FlapJack LED Edge Light C-200S from FotodioX has its LEDs mounted around the outer edge, aimed inward at layers of diffusion material instead of outward like a traditional fixture. Instead of a direct beam, the FlapJack's bounced light produces a soft, even glow with no hotspots. It's almost like having a softbox built into the light but with a form factor that's less than 1/2" at its thinnest point. An entire light kit can fit easily in a messenger bag or camera bag. FlapJack lights run on either AC power or an NP-F style rechargeable battery, both of which are included in the kit. The light is dimmable from 10-100% with no change in its 5,500K color temperature, A back-lit LCD indicator shows both light level and battery life status.
Internally bounced light is easier on the eyes - your subject can look directly toward the light with no discomfort. Hide a FlapJack C-200S in a lamp to mimic an on-set practical light, or take advantage of the compact size to light up cramped spaces like a car interior or an office cubicle. The Flapjack is also a good choice for tabletop, food or product photography. Use the FlapJack's included ball-head to mount it to a light stand, or to the camera's accessory shoe. The built in 1/4-20" mounting threads let you attach the it vertically or horizontally to a tabletop tripod or lighting clamp. The light weighs so little that you can mount it with touch-fasteners, cord or tape.
The FlapJack C-200S includes a rechargeable Sony NP-F style Lithium-ion battery, charging station and an AC adapter. It all fits in the included hard-shell case with handle.
