Newest specialty lighting system produces soft, continuous light for portraits, interviews and product photography
Fotodiox Pro (http://www.fotodioxpro.com), a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-quality photography and videography accessories, has announced their newest concept in LED lighting: the FlapJack LED Edgelight series. Designed to be lightweight, portable and easy to set up, the FlapJacks produce soft, even light that is ideal for almost any shooting scenario, like impromptu interviews, capturing beautiful portraits or even shooting tabletop food or product photography. Their interior diffusion materials eliminate the need for additional softboxes, and each of the four models can easily fit into a messenger or camera bag, making them a truly complete lighting solution – right out of the box.
Rather than using forward-facing LEDs common in conventional panels, the FlapJacks’ LEDs are mounted around their outer edge, aimed inward at layers of diffusion material. Instead of producing a direct beam, they produce bounced light that creates a soft, even glow with no hotspots. They are the perfect solution for filling in shadows, shooting glamour portraits or expertly lighting small spaces, like car interiors or office cubicles.
Furthermore, the FlapJacks feature an elegant form factor – each measuring less than 1/2″ at its thinnest point – and can be placed almost anywhere. Their compact design makes it easy to mount them to light stands, tabletop tripods, light clamps or even a camera’s accessory shoe. The FlapJacks are so lightweight that they can even be mounted with Velcro, cord or tape, making it easier than ever before to get creative with light placement.
