This Spekular Full Star was put together by B&H to introduce image-makers to the creative benefits of this unique light source. The kit includes eight 11.8" daylight-balanced LED sections, 16 gel holders, two power adapters, and two carry cases. Also included is the Spekular Star Adapter that permits you to mount the LED sections in a 4-pointed star configuration and to shoot through the middle as you would with a ring light. The Star Adapter has provision to accept four more LED sections to create an 8-pointed star.
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 Star Adapter
The Spekular Star Adapter from Spiffy Gear is a unique way to tap the creative potential of Spekular LED lights. Two Core Kits are required to create an open-centered, eight-pointed star that measures approximately 25" in diameter (one kit will give you four points). You can shoot through the center of this arrangement like a ringlight, or use it as a large soft lightbank with the bonus of unusual and surprising star-shaped catchlights in the eyes of your subject. Each light component comes with two gel holders, so you can balance them with tungsten lights, add diffusion, or use filters just for creative effects.
