|This Article Features Photo Zoom|
LED lights that are built for professional applications tend to have a larger cost up front, but over time the long-lasting LEDs and low-wattage consumption will end up saving a lot of money.
The 24.9x14.9x3.5-inch Lowel Prime 400 LED panels include an average 50,000 hour life span. Available in Tungsten (3200K) or Daylight (5600K), there's a 50° beam angle with 100% dimming, with an optional honeycomb grid available for a stronger beam with more contrast. An optional PRM-420 4-way Barndoor set will even illumination output via the subtle Prime Lite Diffusion Gel for minimizing multiple shadows cast from the large LED panel. The unit weighs less than 18 pounds, and it can be hung with the included C-clamp or mounted on a stand with a standard 5⁄8-inch thread. Estimated Street Price: $1,999.
