Light and Motion, a cinema lighting developer with over 30 years of experience developing lighting solutions, offers a couple of powerful-yet-portable lights in its StellaPro line.

The line contains four different models: the CLX10, CL 8000, CL 2000 and CL 1000/2500. Each model is for professional videographers and accommodates various budgets (starting at $399). Let’s get into some of the highlights of the line.

Light and Motion claims the line offers speed and power

According to Light and Motion, each entry in the StellaPro line shoots at a high frame rate while providing continuous light. The line’s top offering (the CLX10) delivers a CRI and TLCI of 93 and 94 — a good rating for color accuracy. Even with its lower options (the CL 1000/2500), it has a CRI and TLCI of 91/93. Though the rating is slightly lower, it’s still a solid rating.
