Lowel GL-1 Power LED Light Features

Lowel GL-1 compact battery powered LED light that's ideal for the wedding, event, location portrait and architectural photographer. It's based on an original concept by noted Wedding Photographer Brian Marcus

The Lowel GL-1 Power LED compact handheld light source is ideal for any type of event or location photography that demands portability, flexibility and ease of use. The GL-1's ergonomic appeal is readily apparent, from the rubberized exterior to the lockable trigger that enables dimming from 5.0-100%. The removable, rechargeable battery is located at the base for precise balance and its flat underside and low-profile feet allow placement on a table or other flat surface. There is also a 1/4"-20 threaded socket for tripod mounting.

The GL-1's flexible qualities begin with the focusing head with a 5:1 spot-to-flood ratio that allow photographers to back light or hair lightones subject or pull back to add some fill light when needed to open up the shadows. The trigger-controlled dimming and a thumb-operated light intensity dial allows 1 hand operation for multi-tasking scenarios. The Lowel GL-1 includes the light head, battery, multi-voltage charger and AC adapter. Its 3,000K output can be cooled to 5,300K for use in daylight with the purchase of an optional filter.

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
