Light & Motion Introduces Stella CL 10000c Action Kit for ENG Crews

At NAB, Light & Motion will launch the Stella Pro CL 10,000c Action kit which uses a diminutive Stella Pro 10000c weighing under under two pounds while delivering the light output of a 200 Watt HMI.

Light & Motion said the kit can be powered from a wide range of existing V-mount batteries from 12 to 30 volts. The power, small size and rugged build quality of the Stella Pro 10,000c has made it the choice of news teams around the world.

The Stella Pro CL 10,000c provides significant advantages over HMIs. It is smaller, more powerful and more robust (drop tested to one meter onto concrete) than HMI lights. The COB (chip on board) LED design is far safer than HMI lights as it doesn’t radiate UV and delivers high CRI and 93 TLCI (television light color index) at a stable 5600 kelvin with lower wattage and cooler running.

"The flexibility, compact size and powerful punch of the Stella Pro 10,000c is amazing. My gear load has lightened significantly! The small size and power allows me to set up fast and easily get my shot on-location anywhere,” said Jake Barlow, photojournalist for CBS Sunday Morning.

The Stella Pro CL 10,000c supports an effective range of modifiers including a spot Fresnel that works well in direct sun as a fill light. Stella is light enough to mount on-camera and its wide, native 120-degree beam can fill a six foot softbox or Octa for a very large soft source.

The Action kit is priced at $2,199.99.
