New York, NY – March 6, 2014 – Adorama, one of the world’s largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, recently released the Flashpoint StreakLight, a brand new portable strobe light for on- or off-camera use. Compact and extremely lightweight, Flashpoint StreakLight provides powerful, even lighting from any angle thanks to its articulated head and options for on-camera hot shoe or light stand mounts. Perfect for location and wedding photographers, StreakLight is available now, in 180 or 360 watt second versions, in Adorama’s NYC store or online.
Leading the way with precise manual exposure on demand and advanced engineering in a solid, dependable package, the Flashpoint StreakLight features high-speed sync, built-in optical slave, four shooting modes and auto-focus assist. Photographers get control from the large LED panel with adjustable output from 1/128 to full, in 1/3 stop increments, and soft, even light from using the included standard, parabolic reflector and diffusion panels.
The StreakLight flash has two sync jacks and overheating protection circuitry, and also features a wireless remote control USB port. The Flashpoint Wireless Remote & Receiver is just one of many optional accessories that make this light even more versatile while shooting on location. A full line of compatible Flashpoint light modifiers, from snoots to beauty dishes, is also available through Adorama. Photographers can choose a bundled package such as the Flashpoint StreakLight Creative Collection, which includes a dome diffuser, four color filters and grid, a flash grip, and cables among many other useful accessories, or purchase Flashpoint StreakLight accessories à la carte. Flashpoint StreakLight is compatible with accessories from other well-known brands including Quantum and Lumedyne.
Powering the StreakLight
Flashpoint StreakLight is perfect with its companion portable battery pack, the Flashpoint Blast Pack. Blast Pack is extremely lightweight and features replaceable, rechargeable batteries for continuous shooting with just one pack. Watch a product overview video here.
