Light & Motion has pushed the envelope with the introduction of the 5600K Stella 1000/2500UW 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 1000/2500UW an ideal light for both topside cameras and underwater camera rigs. When using out of the water, Boost Mode 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 1000/2500UW has a wide 120-degree beam that can be narrowed with the optional 50° focus optic or narrowed even tighter with the included 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 1000/2500UW is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery that charges to full power in 2 hours and gives you a run time of 45 to 415 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 1000/2500UW also comes with a C-stand mount and a cold-shoe mount to quickly and easily secure your light on a stand or for on-camera use.
