If you noticed this amazing set of images by Reuben Wu a few weeks ago, you probably got an idea of what was coming. Fiilex has created an LED that you can mount on a 3DR drone and use from the sky. This has ramifications in the film and light painting world, and it’s really kind of amazing.
The AL250, Fiilex’s first aerial lighting solution, redefines lighting control by mounting to any drone with a minimum payload capacity of at least 0.6lbs (270g). The intensity of this compact fixture matches a 200-watt tungsten bulb while drawing only 30 watts of power making it one of our most efficient fixtures yet. The AL250 features special fresnel optics designed to leverage Fiilex’s Dense Matrix technology. These optics focus the flicker-free beam, more than doubling its center lux. The unit is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which attaches directly to its housing, allowing the light to operate independently for a duration of 25 minutes. Expand your lighting capabilities in exciting new ways with the Fiilex AL250.
- Attaches to Drone via GoPro mount
- 200W Tungsten Equivalent Output – 30W Power Draw
- Integrated Fresnel Optics
- Power for 25 Minutes with removable / rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery
Here is a behind the scenes video on how Wu created his light painting landscape photos:
Fiilex also created a short film as well as a behind the scenes using the new drone light. Check it out:
