PhotoPlus Expo 2013: Fiilex

This year at PhotoPlus Expo, I was introduced to Fiilex, an LED light company. I was impressed with not only the variety of products they carry, but the diversity in the line of products.

Brent of Fiilex talks with a PPE guest about the Fiilex line of lights.

First in the Fiilex line, the P360 and P180. Both lights were powerful yet light. The P360 is "a 90-watt platform that makes the unit one of the highest powered LED continuous light sources for its size of (4" x 4.7") and weight (1.6lbs)". And the P180 The P180 is a "compact and color tunable ENG light that is ... highly functionable for travel / portable lighting. Smaller than a soda can, the P180 will be one of the smallest and strongest on-camera LED lights in the market." If these lights aren't portable we don't know what portable is!

One of the coolest products I saw at PPE this year was the Fiilex P100. About the size of a brick, but much lighter, this little guy packs a punch! The Fiilex P100 is a 12 watt high-intensity platform. Not only can you change the intensity of the light, but the tone as well. With accessories to adjust the light, the P100 is incredibly versatile and easy to carry with you everywhere you go. And, it's pretty adorable.

The P500 was very powerful. The reason that it was tilted upward was because they were actually shining the light on the ceiling of the Javits Center, that's how powerful it was! From the Fiilex site, "the first product in their Quasar Series, the Q500, is setting a standard that will make the industry rethink what is possible, and an additional control knob for ± Hue Control (Green/Magenta) for even further fine tuning of the color spectrum." 

We currently have the Fiilex 301 Kit in store and online. The 301 Light Kit gives you the flexibility you need to match any existing ambient light or to warm up a scene for added depth. Fiilex's patented color tunable technology allows you to comfortably walk into any lighting environment feeling prepared, knowing you have the tools for just about any job that comes your way. Complete in a rolling travel case, the kit comes with three P360 color tunable light heads, power adapters, barndoors, light stands, softbox and a speedring. Designed for use as a 3 Light Interview Kit or a traditional 3 Point Light Setup in mind. Features include:
