Photonicz, a California-based company founded by photographer Alex Munoz, is seeking funding for the new Photonicz One: the first ever compact LED strobe light that is weather-sealed. Due to this weather-sealed design, the Photonicz One can be used outdoors in snow and rain without risking damage... not bad.

oining that durable construction is a light weight of just 1.5kg / 3.3lbs, and compact size measuring in at just 4.9 x 4.7 x 3.5in (or 124 x 119 x 89mm for you metric types).

The Photonicz One strobe light offers a maximum power output equivalent of 2500 watts, is capable of speeds as fast as 1/50,000 of a second, and can fire at full power at speeds up to 30fps from battery power. The built-in battery is capable of powering 'thousands' of full-power flashes per charge, according to the company.

Users have two options for controlling the Photonicz One: a built-in touchscreen display, or the remote control with OLED display. The remote control can be paired with an iPhone or Android mobile device for use with an app that lends even more control options. Finally, the Photonicz One can also be wirelessly synced with other lighting devices, or can be triggered individually from distances of up to 0.6 miles / 1km.

Here's a quick intro to the new strobe:

The Photonicz One's design is still a work-in-progress; the Kickstarter campaign, which is offering backers the chance to get the device at $750 USD, offers images of the device prototype. The final design may have a different look.

Assuming Photonicz is able to successfully fund the strobe, the Photonicz One will begin shipping to backers in March of 2018.
