Fotodiox Pro has launched its new FACTOR Series, a lineup of nine bi-color and high-output LED light panels for various photographic needs. The series contains three circular lights and five square/rectangular lights with removable barn doors. According to Fotodiox, these nine lights are designed to provide area lighting and spot illumination, and to facilitate 'studio-style shoots.' 

The FACTOR LED lights have adjustable color temperatures that range from 5600 Daylight to 3200 Tungsten, according to Fotodiox marketing director Bohus Blahut. The series utilizes Fotodiox's Factorsoft, a technology that sets LED chips deep within the lights for 'a soft, beautiful beam with no hot spots and a single, clean shadow,' says Blahut. This is complemented by a svelte 1.5in / 3.8cm profile and all-metal construction.

This light series is also suitable for use during slow-motion video recording, as they will not produce flickering in high frame rate scenarios. As well, the lights can be powered from an ordinary AC wall adapter or V-lock batteries. The following models are available now through the company's website:

  • FACTOR 1x1 – Comes with removable barn doors ($899.95 USD)
  • FACTOR 1x2 100 (100 watt draw) – Comes with removable barn doors ($749.95 USD)
