Light & Motion to Show a Powerful HMI Replacement LED Light that Fits in the Palm of a Hand

Light & Motion will show its new portable Stella Pro 9000c and Stella Pro 5000c at the CineGear Expo at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles beginning June 3.

Light & Motion said the new lights feature an ultra-compact design that fits into the palm of the hand and weighs a featherweight 750 grams. Powered from AC or a 24V DC supply, a digital screen reports power levels while an easy grip magnetic control ring makes adjusting output simple and repeatable.

Consistent with all Stella Pro Lights is the Chip on Board “COB” array that provides a smooth, evenly dispersed, 120-degree native beam with high CRI and TLCI ratings of 90+ and 93 respectively.

The Pro 9000c illuminates with a commanding 9000 lumens and delivers 18,540 Lux at one meter with available Fresnel. To maintain constant output at these substantial power levels, the 9000c integrates a variable speed fan that remains off until the light exceeds 5000 lumens.

At full power, the diminutive Stella Pro 9000c delivers the equivalent light output of HMI units four times its size.

Durability and all-conditions portability are hallmarks of the Light & Motion Stella Line. The 9000c features IP54 water resistance and is capable for challenging outdoor shoots.

The Pro 5000c provides up to 10,300 LUX at one meter, is passively cooled and submersible and depth rated to 20 meters (IP 68). Like all Stella lights, the new models pass the rigorous FL-1 standard drop test, passing six drops, one per side, on concrete from one meter.

The new Light & Motion lights represent ultra-powerful output in a substantially compact, portable package. Progressive engineering and robust construction provide assurance for flawless performance in critical situations. The Stella Pro 9000c and 5000c reinvent the capabilities of tethered lighting.

Stella Pro 5000c retails for $1799 and includes a 50-degree optic, barn doors, C-stand mount and power supply. Stella Pro 9000c retails for $1999 and includes a 50-degree optic, barn doors, C-stand mount and power supply.
