GL-1 Power LED

Hollywood Lighting in the Palm of Your Hand
The Lowel GL-1 Power LED is a powerful, handheld, focusable & dimmable, photo-quality tungsten color light. It was designed as an innovative tool for the Wedding/Event and location portrait still photographer. With high ISO cameras allowing them to shoot in lower light locations, the GL-1 puts just the right amount of light exactly where they need it. From up close, or at a distance. Its dimming & focusing versatility also makes it popular with architectural time-lapse light painting photographers.

The GL-1 does not mount to a conventional Lowel stand, as it is a handheld unit with no integrated tilting ability in the lighthead. However the bottom of the light has 2 screwthreads (1/4-20, and 3/8′) for tripod mounting. This gives the ability to tilt the light.
This would most often be used when continuous stationary lighting is needed, such as for video lighting. In that use, the GL-1’s dimming trigger would be locked ON, and its brightness would be controlled by the light’s rear dimming knob.
*Note: exercise caution when using GL-1 on a tripod. It will be top heavy. Tighten all locking controls on the tripod securely and be careful when moving the light.

Notes on GL-1 Power LED output:
All LEDs have higher output when first turned on, and most take aprox 20 minutes to stabilize to their consistant output (aprox 15% less). During this time, color remains stable.
Because GL-1 is used primarily in very short still-photo lighting bursts (10-15 seconds), its max. output in that context will be higher than after warmup time. The output chart is measured from a light that was just turned on. For stabilized output, deduct 15% from readings.
