The most powerful of Light & Motion's self-contained location lights is a game-changer for content creation. The CL 8000 features an integrated Li-Ion battery and advanced COB LED array to deliver an incredible 8000 lumens of light (equivalent to a 200w HMI) for 50 minutes. Great for working with large light modifiers or diffusion panels, the compact unit delivers professional lighting that renders colors beautifully. Its compact design allow multiple StellaPro's to be packed in carry-on sized bags eliminating worry and checked bag fees. With no cords or ballast warm up, the single-point LEDs are ready at a moment's notice and do not require heavy stands or counterweights. The powerful lights can operate in any location regardless of conditions or power availability. The compact hand held RF remote controls up to 4 groups of lights up to 200 meters away.

  • For longer shoots, plug into any AC or DC power source (DTap cable sold separately)
  • Dimming with stepped or continuous control, OLED Digital Display offers precise readout of RF settings, lumen output, battery remaining run time and charge status
  • 120° native beam is easily shaped with our simple press-on optics or light shaping tools from Profoto, Elinchrom, DOP Choice, and Chimera, light includes Profoto adapter ring and the mount features an integrated umbrella holder

What are soft light options for CL 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.

How do you travel by air with the CL lights?

The Light & Motion continuous lights with integrated lithium-ion batteries can be safely transported in carry on and checked luggage because the batteries are safely installed/integrated in the light (unlike spare lithium-ion batteries). To travel safely just ensure that the master on/off button is in the "off" position. Most airlines have restrictions for "spare" Lithium-ion batteries and these can't travel in checked baggage. The "spare" lithium-ion batteries also have restrictions for travel in carry on with limits to 2 x spare batteries of 100+ watts. The batteries we use in our products are below 90 watts and most importantly are "installed" in the device which permits them to travel in carry on or checked baggage. Airline specifications for Lithium-ion batteries are found in the link below and clearly specify that lithium-ion batteries installed in electronic devices can travel in carry on or checked baggage: Here is an excerpt from the regulation FAQs: "Question 2. What kinds of batteries does the FAA allow in checked baggage (including gate-checked bags)?" "Answer 2. Except for spare (uninstalled) lithium metal and lithium-ion batteries, all the batteries allowed in carry-on baggage are also allowed in checked baggage.The batteries must be protected from damage and short circuit or installed in a device." (The StellaPro batteries are installed). You can read the full document guidelines here:

Battery Life: How many cycles will the integrated batteries provide and how are they replaced?

We use premium Panasonic cells in our lights which are high-capacity, stable batteries. They deliver consistent runtimes with regulated constant output. Our batteries are specified for 500 cycles but in practice our professional customers using the lights daily are experiencing much longer battery life than 500 cycles. Batteries that no longer have capacity can be replaced in our Marina, CA factory for a nominal fee. We can provide battery replacement and a full service of the light for $350 (or nominal fee) if and when needed. In addition to long life, one of the advantages of our integrated battery lights is the ability to travel with these integrated battery lights on carry on or in checked baggage. You can read more about this on our FAQ on "Traveling with your StellaPro Lights".

De Anna Petrie

I want a million more of these. During this Texas Winter Storm of 2021, this light came in handy for lighting up my house when I needed it! PERFECTION! I will order more! Thank you Light & Motion for creating such amazing products!

Paige Henderson
Absolutely love!!

Leon Johnson recommended this in his Facebook group and showed a demonstration of the light during a FB live. I took the plunge and absolutely love this light. I agree with the other reviewers, this is a game changer.

Daniel Quinones
Great Product!

I have been using the 8000 lights for years. I primarily use them for product photography, portrait photography and especially video interview productions. The battery life is great and the power output is powerful enough to use as a fill light when my subject a are backlit by windows and even sometimes the sun! I typically pair these lights with a Westcott Beauty Dish by Joel Grimes and even a 7' Parabolic umbrella.

Game Changer

Using continuous lightning for my work has been a complete game changer for me. The convenience of this light has cut down on my time of adjusting my light while I am shooting in low light situations. It's very lightweight and diverse in any situation I am shooting. I would highly recommend this light.

Leon Johnson
Powerful, compact, durable.

I am a professional portrait photographer and teacher. After weeks of research, I decided to purchase this light and I was so pleasantly surprised. The light is perfect for finding the right light quickly. You can very easily see exactly what is happening with the light as you move it or as your subject moves. I didn’t realize how much of a benefit this would be until I Inc. delight into my teaching. I feel like my students learn faster and learn to use the light intuitively because they could see exactly what was Happening without having to take a shot. Unexpected benefit: say goodbye to triggers. I no longer have to have triggers on hand for every model of camera under the sun and I don’t have to figure out why someone else’s trigger is not causing a flash. 🙂
