Flolight BladeLight overview

  • 1Description

The 18" Bladelight 5600K LED Light from Flolight is a unique linear array of high power LEDs that uses a moving lens to offer the user a choice of 20, 60 or 120 degree beam angles. This version of the light has a 5600K daylight balance that can be converted to tungsten if necessary using an available filter.

The Bladelight's unique design allows it to output wrap around light similar to a softbox but with razor sharp rendering without multiple shadows. Flexibility is key to the Bladelight's design; multiple units can be attached end to end or side-by-side to create a larger fixture. This Bladelight ships with a manual remote dimmer.

Benefits
  • Softbox-like wrap around light
  • High power LEDs
  • Focusable - 3 selectable beam angles 20, 60, 120 degrees
  • Connect end-end, side-side
  • Two slide-in channels for diffusion and filters
  • Included barndoors for precise light control
  • Future Bluetooth Wireless Control Capability
    A future app will be released for both iOS and Android devices that will allow for wireless remote control via Bluetooth 4.0. Several Bladelights can be grouped, dimmed, and turned on or off using a simple App that has yet to be developed.

    Please Note: This app is not available yet and the release date is currently undetermined.

    Flolight BladeLight reviews

    Bladelight 5600K LED Light (18") is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from messy Yea, cuts the light well and it is bright. Not enough reason to lug around this small and heavy fixture. Power supply, ballast and dimmer is a mess. All of that needs to be on the back of the light itself along with a battery plate. I like leaving a smaller footprint on set with clients and crew. For the size of this light the power supply, ballast and dimmer looks ridiculous and sloppy. I'll wait for em to fine tune it before purchasing another. You'll also need to black wrap the sides of the light because of heavy spillage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This light is a Kino Killer I was able to get it through some forum contacts, I believe this was a Beta unit, because the new one I recently got was a little bit different (The backplate, the power supply) Both the 18 and 36 versions of the lights are amazing, I first got a 36 version and I liked it so much, I got one more 36 and I got an 18 version, in Daylight. The 18 light is small enough to get 3 of them into a Run and Gun lighting kit, with room to spare for accessories. I see they have the V-Mount option for pre-order, and I plan on getting a few when they're for sale. This light outperforms my Kino Diva's in 1/4 of the space. They put out a ton of light, and I love the COB Led's instead of the Lensed LEDs. the Color is amazing on the light, I got 96 CRI, and it's so nice to see a manufacturer that isn't putting out fake photometric data on their lights (A lot of lights I get claim high CRI only to find out they are unusable, with a greenspike or a magenta cast). The light does wrap a face like they say, but to avoid the multiple shadows, you have to use diffusion on the barndoors or the ones that come with the lights. Also the fact that Flolight is including high quality LEE filters that are specially made for LEDs is pretty impressive. I'm used to get cheap plastic filters, that are well a joke. Anyone who shoots with LEDs panels knows that you have to use diffusion if you plan on shooting any person or subject with depth or contours. I feel like this light was built with care, and it feels like it's going to last for years. There's no plastic cheap anything with the body of the light. I think the one big downfall of the light is the power supply. The first one I got had on on/off switch, and the new one does not? I'm not sure what this is about, maybe they're going to fix this in the future? I'm glad I finally found an upgrade to my Kinos, no more broken bulbs or huge lights to lug around!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blade light cuts well This light was definitely a good investment. For years I've been looking at Kino's and wanted something similar but was never able to afford them. Although these cannot completely be compared to kino flo's, with diffusion, it definitely can mimic them. The light is bright for 18 at 5600k. Definitely a lot of power. Construction on this thing is pretty sturdy, very metal. I love that you can slide gels into any of the 3 slots provided for the beam angle lens, prevents from having to wrap them or attach them to the barn doors. Cutting light is definitely not a problem and you can definitely see the defined shadows from the barn doors. With added diffusion these shadows can be softened. High CRI 95, so the light output is almost color accurate. Some issues with the 18 light I had bought: Upon arrival, I noticed one of the barn doors was extremely flimsy (nothing a good tightening of screws can't fix) but I imagine that this could be a problem over time. Another issue I had was that on the B&H photos, it showed a power on/off switch for the light. My light has no switch... It looks like theres a part on the cord connected to the power bank to attach an in line switch, but I just don't like that for a light at this price point, there was no power switch included, so plugging in the light turns it on, and unplugging it turns it off. The last thing was that the lens that is included with the light to adjust the beam angle cannot fit on the slot closest to the light because of the screw heads securing the light being too high. I gave this light 3 stars because it does what it says it can do, with some issues with construction. Don't get me wrong, this light feels tough and I'm happy with it, but I don't think small flaws like this should exist with this price point. This is something I can overlook as most of these seem like no brainer fixes.
