Fomex FL-600 Flexible LED V-Mount Ready-to-Shoot Kit
A flexible LED light mat specifically designed for use by filmmakers & stills photographers
A Truly Flexible LED Light
Produced by experienced lighting manufacturer Fomex, the FL-600 is a flexible LED light mat specifically designed for use by filmmakers & stills photographers.
Combining low weight, thin design and 360° pliability into an LED lighting fixture permits previously impossible mounting, positioning and operation. The LED mats can be adhered directly to walls, windows or virtually any surface – curved or otherwise.
The mat’s top and bottom edges incorporate durable wire tubing – once operators flex the mat, it remains in the desired shape. Its bendable and compact design allows it to be easily concealed in tight spaces on-set, whilst also making storage and travel a breeze.
The included ‘X-Mount’ also allows the mats to emulate a regular rigid lighting fixture – incorporating a 16mm female spigot for mounting on light stands or other lighting grip. With the FL-600 weighing just 387g, the optional boom pole enables fast and efficient overhead lighting without the need for a large and cumbersome lighting rig.
For ultimate practicality, the FL-600 light mat has been designed for all-weather use, with an IP64 rain and dust protection rating. This makes the light equally at home in a studio or anywhere on location, regardless of weather and environmental factors. For location use, it opens up possibilities to shoot in the rain, in a desert or in humid conditions.
Water and dust resilience also makes maintenance easier, as the mats can simply be wiped down with a wet cloth when required.
With a colour temperature range of 3200°K to 5600°K and precise dimming from 1 to 100%, the FL-600 is as flexible in operation as it is in form.
These settings are adjusted using the simple and intuitive lighting controller. Its backlit LCD panel displays the current colour temperature and brightness values, with changes made using the dials on either side. To avoid accidental adjustment or damage, these dials are protected with metal surrounds.
Located on the controller’s rear side is a V-Mount battery plate which is used for powering the light when AC power is not available. For users who do not own or operate with V-Mount batteries, the FL-4in1-SLVA battery adaptor offers an alternative power solution. It uses NPF type batteries to replicate a regular V-Mount battery.
An included adaptor shoe allows the controller to dock directly to a regular SuperClamp. The SuperClamp can be attached to a lighting stand, ensuring the controller is accessible to make quick setting adjustments.
When used and operated on the move, the controller can be held on the operators shoulder thanks to the built-in strap attachment point.
Accurate & Powerful
The FL-600’s impressive physical characteristics are backed-up by equally-notable photometric data. Colour rendering test results of CRI 96 and TLCI 98 ensure the light output virtually mimics that of natural light sources. This ensures colour reproduction is true-to-life, making post-production and colour grading more straightforward.
In spite of its slight nature, the FL-600 can match traditional 1’x1’ panels for power, delivering a light output of 2100 LUX at 1 meter.
Often with lights of this power, overheating can become a major issue. Despite its remarkably thin, lightweight and flexible design – Fomex have incorporated an effective heat dispersion method. Even with hours of continuous operation, the LEDs will always be cool enough to touch.
For absolute simplicity, Fomex offer a single, ready-to-shoot kit which is professionally presented in a bespoke carry bag. The FL-600-KIT includes everything necessary to get shooting including the LED mat, X-Mount, controller, AC power supply, UK IEC cable and 5m controller extension cable.
Optional accessories include a softbox (FL-600-SB), 4-leaf barndoors (FL-600-BD), 3-section boom pole (FL-BP), mounting cheeseplate (FL-CP) and cheeseplate with ball head combo (FL-CPBH).
Fomex products are designed and manufactured to the highest technical and quality standards, backed-up by an unrivalled two year warranty.
