Westcott has announced a new deal that makes them the exclusive North American and Australian distributor for these exciting new FLEX LED lights.

These impressive new FLEX LED lights made their debut at IBC and Photokina, and will now be making their way to the US, Canada, and Australia through Westcott. The company announced through their website that  not only are they distributing these lights, but they will be producing modifiers, mounting systems, and other accessories to make using these FLEX LED lights even better.

We are working with a team of video and photo lighting experts to develop an entire series of innovative components for controlling and modifying this new technology, including a variety of sizes, mounting systems, diffusion options, battery operation, and more.

FLEX LED Specs

  • 10in by 10in
  • fully flexible and bendable
  • 166 total LED Lights
  • Available in Daylight or Tungsten Color Temp
  • 95 CRI
  • 1,900 LUX
  • Dimmable from Full to %5 Power

These lights look like they could be a really valuable asset to photographers and videographers alike. The small amount of space they take up, along with their ability to flex and bend means traveling with them should be a breeze. I mean, just think of all the different places you could mount these that a normal light or LED panel just couldn’t go.

    I can see a lot of use for stuff like this in low light photography… I think you could place a few of these very strategically in a dark place and use them for a hair light or fill light or something awesome.
