B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Lowel TotaLED Daylight LED Floodlight. B&H Photo becomes the exclusive retailer for the new Lowel TotaLED light. The Lowel Tota Light has long been a fixture on productions looking for a unit that provides a strong output in a small size. With the original Tota Light, there was a price to pay because it would burn through costly quartz halogen bulbs that produced a blistering amount of heat, which over time could melt the fixture’s barndoors. The TotaLED suffers from none of the heat problems that go along with the original Tota, while still producing a brilliant daylight output with a CRI of 96.3 and a TLCI of 95.3 for excellent color rendition. Built into a curved aluminum housing with fins that aid in cooling, the Tota LED can be handled without gloves, even after hours of being on. The removable plastic diffuser smooths out the beam spread and removes any stippling effect from the multiple LED emitters, while its efficient design has minimal effect on the brightness of the fixture’s output.
The fixture can operate in either a horizontal or vertical position and includes a mounting hole for an accessory umbrella; this mounting hole is something you would expect to find on a Tota Light, so it is thoughtful that Lowel has included it with the Tota LED. The yoke mounts on a standard baby pin, and the fixture itself incorporates a 1/4″-20 threaded accessory mounting hole. An included Dimmer Control Box allows you to locally adjust the brightness of the unit, which is flicker free from 100 to 0% dimming, and has an integrated mounting slot so it can mount on the TotaLED’s yoke. You can also hang the control box from a stand using the built-in hanger loop. You can power the TotaLED from a V-mount battery or by using the included AC power adapter that snaps into the control box making for a compact power solution. Integrated barn door feature built-in gel clips, and the doors help you control spill.
The new Lowel TotaLED is a strong successor to the original Tota Light—it is compact, portable, and does just what you need a Tota Light to do, without the excess heat melting your on-camera talent.
