Fotodiox Edgelight – Lightweight Circular LED Softbox from the future

September 20th, 2014 Jump to Comment Section 33

Fotodiox is famous for their practical lens mounting adapters like the Sony to EOS with built-in vari-ND. This year at Photokina they present one of the most intriguing lighting solutions I’ve seen so far: A circular, flat, lightweight LED with a smooth surface.

These lights looked really impressive. While their output was not as strong as many other LED’s that are currently on the market, they had some unique attributes:
They are surprisingly thin (less than half a centimeter in thickness), they are lightweight and they provide a smooth lighting surface (no annoying LED dots causing multi-shadows or harsh texture) and they provide a light clarity with a CRI value over 90.

Slowly but surely it seems LED lighting is finally heading into the right direction and these lights seem like a hint on what the future lighting may soon become.

The Fotodiox FlapJack Edgelight should be available early next year and will cost between $300 for the smaller lights and around $600 for the large one.

The smaller lights are called C-200R and C-300R.
They are now available on the Fotodiox Website
