Light & Motion to Unveil New Sola Video Pro 3800 Light
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, November 12, 2018 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

Light & Motion has announced that it will be unveiling its new Video Pro 3800 underwater light at this year’s DEMA Show—which starts this Wednesday.

The 3,800-lumen video light includes a dome port optic that increases the beam angle to 110 degrees while softening the light fall-off at the edges of the beam. The light features a power level and battery status indicator on the side for easy viewing when mounted on a housing. Depth-rated to 330 feet, the light comes with a 1-inch ball mount.

The Video Pro 3800 will retail for $700.

Light & Motion Announces New Video Pro 3800 at DEMA

November 2018 – Marina, CA – The always innovative Light & Motion will showcase their entire range of underwater and professional hybrid lights at DEMA Show Nov. 14-17 in Las Vegas. The California-based manufacturer can be found in Booth #246 within the imaging resource center.

Headlining Light & Motion’s latest products is the Sola Video Pro 3800. Building on the success of the Sola 3800 with extraordinary power/size ratio, the new platform is optimized for wide angle capture with a dome port optic that provides a class leading 110° beam angle (measured underwater). The edges of the beam have gradual light fall-off void of any distracting hard edges—a must-have for the shooter that wants consistent light shaping through an entire video or image set.

The entire Sola platform features intuitive magnetic switch control making power adjustments simple. The new Pro 3800 takes this ingenuity further and relocates the illuminated power indicators to the side of the light—users can now monitor battery status and output from virtually any angle. This ‘minor’ upgrade is a game-changer for photo/video shooters to seamlessly monitor light levels while concentrating on framing and focus of the subject.

At DEMA Light & Motion will unveil a new Flood-Free Guarantee. This dealer-based incentive provides a discount on a new Sola light backed by an industry best warranty. Users who have experienced a flooded light will have confidence to invest in a premium Sola.

Advancing the needs of the professional imaging community, Light & Motion will showcase their Professional Hybrid Lights to complement their dedicated underwater lights. Based off the company’s game-changing Stella On-Location Series for topside photo/cine shooters, the Professional Hybrid Lights are for the content creator who knows no bounds—those that seek out the ultimate footage both above and below the surface. High CRI/TLCI ratings from a COB (Chip-on-Board) 5600k LED Array and flicker-free firmware provides lighting performance that is equally at home on a motion picture set as it is filming subjects underwater. 

The most recent addition is the Stella 1000/2500UW—an ultra-compact unit with the ability to illuminate underwater at a full 2500 lumens but transition seamlessly to topside use at 1000 lumens (with a 2500 lumen burst in air). The Stella is ideal to mount on both topside cameras via the included cold shoe mount.
