The award-winning photo accessories maker Tiffen has just announced their newest strobe light, the Lowel GL-1 Power LED that packs a good number of features. Instead of a generic strobe light that would blind and distract your subject, Tiffen promises a focusable light source that you can use selectively. Due to the portability of the Power LED, it fits perfectly for shooters who are normally on-the-go or even just enjoy the ability to move around freely. It also features the option of dimming the light output from 5-100%. Head on past the cut for the full list of features and benefits.
The New Lowel GL-1 Power LED Feature and Benefit Highlights Include:
Powerful Output – State-of-the-art LED provides a wide focus range, from spot to flood; allows shooters to create that dramatic Hollywood-style lighting either close up or from 20 feet away
Tungsten Color – Flatters skin tones, outputting a very high-quality photo image
Self-Contained DC Power – Gives shooters maximum portability and speed in lighting placement
Two Ways of Dimming – 1) Use the adjustable Dimming Trigger to quickly achieve the perfect light level for short-term handheld use; 2) Lock the light ON and dial in intensity for longer-term constant output at any level, perfect for mounted use or time lapse “Light Painting”
Silent Diaphragm Cooling – Eliminates distraction while shooting in quiet moments
1/4-20 Screw-Thread on GL-1 Base – Provides option for tripod/stand mounting for longer term lighting setups
