Savage Universal Introduces New Lighting & Accessories for Studio Photographers
New products introduced this season include LED light kits and modifiers like reflectors and umbrellas to accommodate new and advanced studio photographers.
Chandler, AZ (March 24, 2015)— Savage Universal, the worldwide leader in backgrounds and photographic products, is introducing several new products and expanding lines this season, one of the more prominent being their studio lighting gear.
The new light kits consist of the 2000 Watt Location Light Kit, which is a portable and easy-to-set-up kit ideal for on-location video shoots, interviews or photo shoots. Each of its two cool running LED lights produces the equivalent of 1000 watts of incandescent light, while using only 100 watts of electricity and providing 50,000 hours of usage. This kit consists of two 1000 watt LED chip studio lights, two 6" reflectors, two 8' light stands, two AC universal power cords and a convenient carry bag. The Luminous Pro LED Shooting Tent is an ideal setup for small product photography, providing two daylight balanced LED light strips that extend across the top of the box ensuring perfect, shadow-free light. The flicker-free LED color corrected light source is designed to bring out the true colors of jewelry, collectibles and commercial products. Multiple access points allow for various shooting angles, and is great for quick camera phone pictures.
Among new light modifiers are umbrella softboxes and reflector packs. The Savage Umbrella Softbox provides a low cost way to achieve the soft, directional light of a softbox but with the easy open characteristics of an umbrella. The reflector packs are available in a 5-in-1 size as well as a 9-in-1 size that includes a Chroma Green and Blue face, which can be used as small headshot backdrops, in addition to an 18% Gray surface that’s useful for accurate light metering.
“This is a particularly busy season for the company as we’re launching a variety of new items, and we’ve received very positive feedback thus far on the new lighting options” said COO, Rich Reiser. “We think these products stand out because of their high-quality LED light features and their concise construction for longevity, which brings a lot of value at affordable pricing.”
