Light & Motion Introduce Stella 5000d Drone Light at 2016 NAB

Light & Motion introduce an ultra-powerful light designed for mounting on airborne drones at 2016 NAB.

Partnering with Inspect Tools and Airborne Drones, Light & Motion engineered the Stella drone light to support high resolution imaging work for cinema and industrial applications.

The powerful and compact 5000 lumen light is remotely controlled from the drone controller including on/off, dimming and a power-saving strobe mode for photography. Weighing only 26 ounces, the Stella 5000d draws up to 70 watts at full power.

Stella 5000d is cinema enabled, daylight balanced, with over 90 CRI and 93 TLCI output. Its small footprint allows it to mount on conventional camera gimbals.

With a native 120 degree beam, the 5000d is compatible with all existing Stella Pro light modifiers including a 50 degree Focus Optic and 25 degree Fresnel lens. It operates from drone or camera battery with 12 to 25.2 volt input and has thermal protection that prevents overheating with passive cooling.
