The RagLite claims to be the future of lighting, and after watching their video, that claim may be valid. It’s flexible, lightweight, virtually indestructible, and customizable. For the photographers and cinematographers who are ambitious with their compositions and critical about their lighting, the RagLite may be a solution to unanswered lighting problems.

The RagLite is a super flexible piece of fabric with LED light strips mounted on it. It’s tough, waterproof and lightweight.

    How can this even remotely be bright enough unless you’re in a pitch black room?
    What ISO/f-stop was the promo video shot at?

    Andy and Nancy –
    The power source is either battery or 120V outlet.

    The output for the lights vary depending on what you are looking at. The CRI of the Mini and Rugged versions is 70… this is because the waterproof coating compromises the organizational distribution pattern of the lightwaves and therefore won’t accurately reproduce colored wavelengths on other objects as well.

    The CRI of the Cinema versions is 95. Daylite, Tungsten and Hybrid. All 95.
