Spekular - New Modular LED Lighting Kit with 94+ CRI

Spekular is a new 94+ CRI LED lighting system featuring a unique modular design that allows for dozens of different mounting configurations. Having the ability to build a ring light or a 3-light interview setup and everything in between for just $650 certainly sounds useful. Let’s dive in:

The Spekular kit, priced at $650, comes with four daylight LED sections that can be mounted in all sorts of ways. Each section is built with aluminum and ABS plastic for a total per-section weight of 335 grams. Spiffy Gear, the makers of Spekular, promise a 1500+ luminous flux out of each section at a CRI of 94+ and a 96+ TLCI with no flicker. All sections are dimmable (10% to 100%), but right now Spekular is only available in a daylight version with gel holders for other desired color temperatures. The output of each individual section is comparable to a 150W halogen light according to the manufacturer, so place them all together and you’re looking at about 600W in the halogen world.

All sections are powered by an included wall adapter and power each other once linked together, but you can also power the set from D-Tap by purchasing an optional $130 battery adapter. It’s unfortunate that this kit doesn’t come with the battery adapter included, as the portability of these lights is a definite plus.

One of the more interesting available accessories is the Star Adapter, which creates a unique starlike effect in the eyes for fashion portraits and interviews. Not appropriate for all shoots, but definitely an interesting effect that takes the ring-light look up a notch.

As LED tech continues to evolve, we’ve been seeing all sorts of promising lighting solutions – whether they be foldable, bendable or stackable. We haven’t gotten our hands on the set yet, but a Spekular kit seems to be powerful lights to have around for a variety of different situations.

Pricing: $650
