The ProMaster VL800B combines portability with power. Slim and versatile, it can be used both indoors and outdoors with the included AC adapter or optional batteries. The PROMASTER VL800B is an adaptable light that allows you to choose a warm or cool effect. Blend it with other light sources, or add a special feel to an otherwise flat looking scene. Whether your goal is studio portraiture, still life, environmental portraiture, scenic accent lighting, or even light painting, the VL800B will meet your photographic lighting needs.
800 LEDs of power offer an incredible amount of light output. Yet the VL800B maintains a slim form factor. Here are some important benefits and features:
The VL800B includes easily interchangeable handles. One is a tilting bracket with umbrella holder designed for use on a light stand. The second is what we are calling a ‘run-and-gun’ handle, which allows the user to comfortably hand-hold the light. This is very helpful in ‘street photography’ and quick video situations.
A wireless remote is included with every VL800B. This allows for wireless operation including brightness control, multiple channels (to control many lights in various groups and combinations) plus on/off.
The remote includes a storage case. Even here great attention was paid to the details. The case has a velcro strap allowing it to be attached to a light stand. Made from high visibility yellow fabric the remote will be easy to find in the bottom of a dark lighting case.
Both a frosted diffuser, for softer light, and an amber diffuser for warm, tungsten balanced light are included with each VL800B.
The DC power connection port is robust and will provide years of excellent service. Some might even call it overengineered for a light at this price point.
The AC cord is intentionally extra long so even when the VL800B is high up on a light stand the power transformer will rest on the floor. This reduces stress on the cord and power connection as well as protects the transformer from a fall.
