Light & Motion 1000/2500 UW Hybrid Overview

  • 1Description

Light & Motion has pushed the envelope with the introduction of the 5600K Stella 1000 / 2500 UW Hybrid LED Light. Like other lights in the Stella series, this 4.3 x 2.2 x 2.2", 9.7 oz fixture is IP68 rated, making it waterproof and submersible to 328'. But there's a unique twist - the fixture has the ability to illuminate underwater at a full 2500 lumens and transitions seamlessly to topside use at 1000 lumens, making the Stella 1000 / 2500 UW Hybrid ideal to mount on both topside cameras and underwater camera rigs. When using out of the water, Boost Mood outputs a 30-second light intensity increase for situations that require just a little more light. The fixture is also durably built and can survive repeated dropping on concrete from a height of 3.3', The Stella 1000 / 2500 UW has a wide 120-degree beam that can be narrowed with the optional 50° focus optic or narrowed even tighter with the 25-degree Fresnel for selective lighting. The fan-free design is dead quiet for sound-sensitive locations, while the light is dimmable either continuously or in steps.

The Stella 1000 / 2500 UW is powered by a built-in Li-ion battery that charges to full power in 2 hours and gives you a run time of 45 to 720 minutes depending on the power selected. You can also run the light from a D-Tap external battery source for longer shoots. Additionally, you can use mains power anywhere in the world thanks to the inclusion of a multi-voltage AC power supply. The Stella 1000 / 2500 UW also comes with a YS Mount and a cold-shoe mount to quickly and easily secure your light on a stand or for on-camera use.


Rugged Waterproof Construction
Designed to perform in the most challenging environments - Stella is waterproof to a depth of 328' (IP68 Rating) and tested to resist repeated drops on concrete impacts on concrete from 3.28'.
Boost Mode
Boost Mode allows the light to run continuously at 2500 lumens in water plus it can provide a temporary boost in air for 30 +/- seconds enabling the perfect shot.
Integrated Li-ion Battery
The Stella can run completely cord-free for 45 to 720 minutes and because the battery is integrated into the device, Stella is permissible in both checked and carry-on luggage.
-Multiple Power Options
For longer shoots topside simply plug Stella into any AC or DC power source including Gold-mount/V-mount battery "bricks" (with optional D-Tap cable).
120° Native Beam Angle / (90° Underwater)
Stella's light output can be easily focused to 25° with the included snap-on Fresnel Modifier.
High Output COB "Chip on Board" LED
The light's design eliminates the multi-shadow effect that can be a problem with panel-style light sources, while it also keeps Stella's footprint small.

    How does one connect this light to an ultra light ...

    How does one connect this light to an ultra light strobe arm?
    Asked by: Michael
    Hello Michael! This light has 3 mounting options. Ball mount, Loc-line, and YS. The light comes packaged with the YS mount, but if you need any of the other adapters they can usually be purchased from the same dealer, and if not, they can be found on our webstore. Here are the links to the parts on our webstore -- -- You'll notice that the pages say these parts are for the Sola, which actually shares the same body as the Stella 1000.
