Polaroid-branded BrightSaber Pro wand packs 298 LEDs
A Polaroid-branded 'BrightSaber Pro' handheld light wand is now available, packing 289 LED lights into a frosted tubular diffuser with a built-in, secondary tungsten filter. Like the recently-announced Yongnuo YN360 light wand, the Brightsaber takes on the popular IceLight at a much lower price point.
The Polaroid BrightSaber weighs 624g/22oz and supports operation from either batteries or a wall outlet. The integrated LEDs output 5600k light and have a lifespan rating of more than 50,000 hours. Twisting the BrightSaber engages the tungsten filter sleeve, changing the light’s color temperature to 3200K. Photographers can choose from a few different light modes as well, including an SOS distress strobe, slow flashing and rapid flashing.
Polaroid includes an infrared remote with the BrightSaber; it serves as a portable control for the light wand and as a remote shutter release for nearly all Pentax, Canon and Nikon camera models. BrightSaber is available via Amazon starting at $149.99.
