Fotodiox Pro FACTOR Series announced with nine high-output LED lights
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)
- FACTOR 1x2 200 (200 watt draw) – Comes with removable barn doors $(1,249.95 USD)
- FACTOR 1.5x1.5 – Comes with removable barn doors ($1,299.95 USD)

- FACTOR Jupiter 12 (circular) ($659.95 USD)
- FACTOR Jupiter 18 (circular) ($1,099.95 USD)
- FACTOR Jupiter 24 (circular) ($1,999.95 USD)
Fotodiox Pro Announces FACTOR Series of Bi-Color LED Lighting
Featuring Factorsoft™ technology, the FACTOR series is the next step in the evolution of LED light panels
GURNEE, IL (PRWEB) MARCH 30, 2017
Fotodiox Pro, creator and distributor of several lines of specialty solutions for videography, cinematography and photography, has announced the FACTOR series of high-output, bi-color LED light panels. Designed for spot illumination, studio-style shoots and area lighting, the series contains nine models in various sizes and shapes that are built to use an assortment of creative, series-specific modifiers for shaping and directing the FACTOR lights’ soft beams. They are all available for purchase on FotodioxPro.com.
“At the core of the new FACTOR series is our Factorsoft™ technology,” says Bohus Blahut, marketing director for Fotodiox Pro. “Factorsoft™ refers to our unique use of LED chips, which are set deep in the body of each FACTOR light and produce a soft, beautiful beam with no hot spots and a single, clean shadow. We’ve also built the lights to have fully adjustable color temperature – anywhere from 5600 Daylight to 3200 Tungsten – without sacrificing their fantastic output.”
The FACTOR series features a sturdy, all-metal build and a convenient 1.5 inch profile that makes it simple to position the lights virtually anywhere on set. They run off included AC adapters or V-lock batteries, and produce no flickering at high frame rates – perfect for slow motion video.
