This Spekular Interview Kit was put together by B&H to introduce image-makers to the creative benefits of this unique light source. The kit includes four 11.8" daylight-balanced LED sections, 8 gel holders, a power adapter, and a carry case. Also included is an Expansion Kit that allows the creation of three separate light sources from the LED sections in the Core Kit. In addition, there are two gap-free connectors included that allow you to turn the lights into two 23.6 x 1.6" strips or one 23.6 x 3" strip light.
Spekular Core LED Kit
Featuring a unique modular design, the Spekular Core LED Kit from Spiffy Gear contains four 11.8 x 1.57" aluminum sections, each with 14.5W LEDs that output the tungsten equivalent of 150W with wide coverage of 120°. What makes the system unique is that each of the sections or components can be separated from the others and reconfigured as needed to your specific requirements. For example, the elements of this kit can be used together as a bank or panel or joined together with its sturdy, hinged ABS connectors into a triangle or square for a ring light effect.
The lights can also be used on their own as a portrait lighting setup with separate purchase of an Expansion Kit. Alternatively, with the purchase of four additional lights and a Star Adapter, the lights can be configured as an open-centered star that measures approximately 25" in diameter. You can shoot through the center of this arrangement like a ring light, or use it as a large soft lightbank with the added bonus of unusual and surprising catchlights in the eyes of your subject. Each light component comes with two gel holders to balance them with tungsten lights, add diffusion, or just for creative effects.
The kit is ready for worldwide use thanks to the inclusion of a multi-voltage 110-240 VAC power adapter, but it can also run on optional batteries with the addition of a battery adapter when AC power is unavailable.
All the Modifiers You Need in One Package
Spekular Expansion Kit
The Spekular Expansion Kit from Spiffy Gear is a great way to get more creative mileage out of your Core Kit. The Expansion Kit comes with a set of extension cables and two light stand mounts that, when added to the one in the Core Kit, allow for separation of the light components into three units for use in setups like three-way portrait lighting. Also included are two gap-free connectors that allow you to turn the lights into two 23.6 x 1.6" strips or one 23.6 x 3" strip light.
