Light & Motion has put together this Stella Pro CL 5000 DM RF 3-Light Expedition Kit with an expansive list of modifiers aimed at getting the most out of this versatile LED source. The kit includes three Pro CL 5000 DM RF lights, each with an umbrella holder YS mount, a C-stand mount, and a set of 4-way barndoors. An RF remote control allows wireless adjustments at distances up to 606'. The kit's modifiers include a 50° optic, a 25° fresnel, three 3" speed ring gel holders, and an omni-directional Glo Bulb diffuser. A Profoto Adapter is provided to allow use of their light shapers, as is a 60W/24V external power supply for each light. Light & Motion includes a rolling hard case to store and transport it all.
The Stella Pro CL 5000 RF LED Light from Light & Motion is a daylight-balanced LED source that packs in enough features to cause many users to call it their ideal light source.
With its very small form factor and weight of only 2.5 lb, it's barely noticeable in your kit case and for location work, the Stella CL 5000 is hard to beat. What is noticeable is the clean, accurate color rendering output from the unit's flicker-free COB LED that gives it a rating of 92 CRI and 94 TLCI, indicating accuracy in color rendering. The Stella 5000 has a wide 120-degree beam spread that can be narrowed with an optional 50-degree optic or softened with an optional diffuser. The fan-less design is dead quiet for sound-sensitive locations, while the light is dimmable either continuously or in steps. You can make these adjustments locally or remotely thanks to its built-in a 20-channel RF receiver that allows wireless adjustments to be made with a separately-purchased remote control from distances of up to 656'.
The unit is powered by a built-in battery that charges in 2 hours, giving you a run time of 90-375 minutes depending on the power selected. You can also run the light from the included external power supply or Gold Mount or V-mount "brick" batteries via an optional D-Tap battery cable. The Stella CL 5000 also comes with a YS Mount Pro, C-Stand Mount, and a High-Leverage Handle to quickly and easily secure your light on a stand or other support. A Profoto adapter is included to allow use of their light-shapers.
Operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency, the Elinchrom EL Remote Control for Stella Pro RF LED Lights from Light & Motion can wirelessly turn the lights on or off, as well as control the light intensity at distances up to 656'. The remote features 20 channels to avoid interference with other shooters, and its four groups allow for multiple setups. The EL Remote runs on an integrated Li-Po (lithium-atom polymer) battery that's capable of 16 hours of continuous transmission before requiring a two-hour charge via USB.
The 4-Way Barndoors for Stella 2000 and 5000 LED Heads from Light & Motion allows you to control and shape the light beam of these fixtures while containing spill light. The robust press-on design mounts quickly and securely onto the Stella face bezel and features the DM (Direct Mount) interface which allows additional DM light modifiers to be attached.
Providing a smooth beam with gentle fall-off, the 50-Degree Optic DM from Light & Motion tightens the 120-degree beam angle of the Stella Pro RF, Stella Pro, and Stella 2000 to 50 degrees for selective lighting. Use requires the separate purchase of the Barn Doors Light Modifier with Direct Mount (DM). Alternately, the 50-Degree Optic can be used in combination with Elinchrom light shaping tools or third-party softboxes to further soften their light output.
The Light & Motion Fresnel Lens for Stella 2000 and 5000 LED Lights narrows the beam angle and creates a focused look with high contrast and sharp shadows. The lens has a press-on design for fast attachment or detachment.
Compatible with Stella 2000, Stella Pro, and Stella Pro RF LED lights, the Speedring Gel Holder from Light & Motion attaches firmly to the fixture's bezel and allows the use of Chimera softbox speedring adapters. The included gel frame accepts 3x3" hard gel filters.
An ideal accessory for overhead lighting scenarios like round table discussions and interviews, the Glo Bulb for Select Stella LED Lights casts a soft, medium contrast 180-degree beam of light with minimal shadows and an open "bare bulb" look with gradual fall off near the beam's edge. Another use is inside a softbox where it fills it evenly and eliminates the hot spot from the fixture. The Glo Bulb is compatible with the Stella 2000, Stella Pro 5000, 7000, and 10,000, as well as the Pro 10,000C and the Pro 5000D drone light.
The Profoto Adapter for Stella Pro 5000/5000 RF and Pro 8000 from Light & Motion allows these Pro fixtures to be used with Profoto speed rings or any other brand speed ring made for Profoto. The adapter has a split-ring design that permits speedy, secure attachment to the bezel of the fixture.
