For many years now the Lowel id light has been widely used in the film and TV industry. It is a strong robust unit, able to take the knocks and rigors of everyday shooting. It has a handy flood and spot function, is fully dimmable and is perfect for wedding photography and location portraiture. The team here at Lovegrove Consulting have taken this highly desirable lamp head and built the perfect kit around it.
The id-light is fitted with a high intensity reflector and prismatic glass to give an even flood & uniform spot, and a full range of light control & mounting accessories to bring convenience & dependability to places where AC dares not go.
What’s in the box?
The Lowel id-Light kit (The Lovegrove Edition) includes:
- Lowel ID light (XLR connectors with 100w bulb fitted)
- Barn doors
- Short telescopic extending handle
- 2 metre extension cable (XLR)
- Extra high-capacity Lithium-ion battery in canvas shoulder bag (Exclusive to Lovegrove Shop)
- Lithium-ion battery charger (Exclusive to Lovegrove Shop)
Small: The Lowel id-light is small and light enough to be easily hand held. The compact design is a triumph of form and function. (barn doors sold separately)
Dimmable: The d in id stands for dimmer. This combined dimmer and switch unit ensures the bulb has a soft start each time you switch it on prolonging it’s life. It also has the more obvious function of giving you ultimate control of the light output level. A dimmed id-light is perfect when lighting people at a candle lit table for instance.
Note: Some play or movement in the dimmer switch knob and circuit whilst being operated is quite normal and doesn’t affect it’s use in any way. Your battery will run for longer if the lamp is dimmed.
Flood and spot control: At the heart of any good battery light is a moveable filament, reflector or lens. Each design produces a slightly different characteristic to the size, quantity and pattern of light emitted. The flood and spot function on the Lowel id-light moves the bubble in relation to the reflector to give a significant range of spot intensity. A subtle diffusion on the lens ensures a pleasing drop off from the lit to unlit part of the scene.
XLR connectors: The Lovegrove supplied Lowel id lights are fitted with a professional 4pin XLR connector. This small, robust, latching inline connector is solid and provides secure electrical connections time after time. Rated at 10A, the 4 pin XLR is simply the best and worth paying a bit more for. Don’t settle for less.
