£579.95 Inc VAT

The Lowel GL-1 Power LED is a compact handheld light source that 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{204f9cca3a406601ebca63e05175f4b9cb14e2592b37331c9868855bc588c26b}. 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’s 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 allows you to back light or hair light your 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 GL-1 comes with 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 that mounts to the GL-1’s 82 mm front screw thread.

Focusing Head

The GL-1’s 8:1 focusing range lets you zero in to highlight your subject with a tight spot or pull back to wide flood and add fill light to a larger area

Two Ways to Dim

Use the adjustable Dimming Trigger to quickly get the perfect light level for short term handheld use or lock the light in the ON position and dial in an intensity for longer term constant output at any level
