The CL 10,000c is the most powerful, yet compact, corded on-location light available. The continuous light provides 'HMI' type high output with robust reliable performance and is perfect for on location 'Live Shots' in direct sun; though many users set it up in-studio with its compact mobility. Professional durability and water resistant design allows light to be utilized in the harshest of outdoor environments. Like all of Light & Motion's Continuous Light Series, the smooth 120-degree beam can be easily shaped and modified to provide a light that renders colors beautifully with consistent, reliable, regulated output. With a wide range of mounting options and lighting modifiers, you can do things not possible with conventional lights.
Light & Motion CL lights are natively a "hard" light which produces a pure light that delivers a single shadow and supports dramatic journalistic and Film Noir lighting styles. The hard light is also perfect when shooting on location in bright sunlight as it mimics the sun and can provide an even fill for "live shots" or portraits. There are many options to create a soft or softer light using StellaPro lights: The portable Dome Diffusion accessory creates a wide diffuse light - perfect for portraits. The GloBulb can be used to create a soft light for portraits or interviews. To create a large soft source, CL lights can be shot into a medium to large shoot-through umbrellas or into a parabolic umbrella with a sock. To do this you will need to add an Umbrella Holder Mount Kit. All of our lights can be used with an umbrella with the Umbrella Holder Mount Kit. Additionally, CL lights can be paired with a number of 3rd-party light shaping tools: DoP Choice Snap Bags (no speedring required), and Profoto Softboxes/Octas and Elinchrom by adding our Profoto Adapter Ring. Lastly, COB lighting can be used shot through a diffusion panel, bounced off of a wall or modified with available materials - experiment and be creative with Light & Motion lights as so many options are available when starting with a pure hard light.
Replacement handle provides ultimate control of Light & Motion continuous lights. Easily attaches to the YS mount base allowing smooth control when pivoting light and can be tightened to secure the light in place.
The Light & Motion YS Mount Base with Integrated Umbrella Holder for larger CL Lights replaces the factory YS Mount and adds an integrated umbrella holder making them compatible with virtually any light modifying umbrella on the market.
