Fotodiox Introduces PopSpot Compact LED Fresnel Light

Fotodiox Pro has announced the PopSpot Focusable Fresnel, a tiny LED light in a package about the size of a soda can.

The Fotodiox PopSpot allows videographers to focus its beam for precision, strong contrast and dramatic shadows.

It is available in three configurations: the PopSpot Focusable Fresnel, the PopSpot Focusable Fresnel + Battery Module and the PopSpot Focusable Fresnel three-light kit with rolling carrying case.

“The problem with most Fresnel lights is they’re bulky, heavy and fragile, and they get screaming hot to the touch,” said Bohus Blahut, marketing director for Fotodiox Pro. “But our new PopSpot Focusable Fresnel does away with those pitfalls by combining power and control in a form factor about the size of a pop can.

“A simple twist focuses the PopSpot's output from a 55 to 25-degree beam angle, and removable barn doors offer further control of the shape and direction of the light. We’ve even included a slot for a slide-in tungsten filter.”

Not only can the PopSpot be used for tabletop shooting or as a rim or hair light, it can be used as a primary light in many shooting scenarios. Its compact size and lightweight build offers flexibility in mounting, positioning and concealing.

It’s so small it can travel virtually anywhere. The light runs off either conventional AC power or an optional battery module for on-the-go lighting. It remains cool throughout use.

The head measures 3¼ x 3¼ x 8¼-inches without the battery and weighs two pounds. The single head costs $274.95 without the battery module and $399.95 with it. The three-head kit costs $1099.95, including two batteries for each head.
