When moving from location to location, whether shooting street portraits or an engaging YouTube video, the Compact Creator Kit is designed to give the lighting power needed for professional lighting results in the smallest size possible. The palm-sized Stella CL1000/2500 light can be hand-held, mounted on top of camera, secured to a C-Stand, or even rigged in unique set locations to give lighting options not available in a more traditional panel light. The Compact Creator Kit includes everything you need for a quick and powerful on-the-go lighting set up: 2 compact Stella CL 1000/2500 lights, compact snap-on light modifiers, and versatile mounting – all easily packed into an ultra-compact soft case.
Integrated Li-ion battery lasts : Stella CL 1000/2500 can run completely cord free for 90-720 minutes with integrated battery
Innovative ‘boost’ mode provides a 2500 lumen output when more light is needed and can even run at 2500 lumen ‘boost’ for a constant 45 minutes when submerged in water (to aid in cooling or the high output)
Multiple Power Options: For longer shoots simply plug the continuous light into any AC or DC power source including Gold-mount/V-mount battery “bricks” (with optional DTap cable) or add DC power with the External Battery Kit
Dimming with stepped or continuous control to quickly adjust light intensity
120-degree Beam Angle: Stella’s light output can be easily focused to 25° via snap-on fresnel modifier
Lights feature integrated umbrella holder mount
High Output COB ‘Chip on Board’ LED eliminates the multi-shadow effect typical of panel lights
Rugged Waterproof Construction: Designed to perform in the most challenging environments, the lights are waterproof to a depth of 100 meters (IP68 Rating) and tested to resist 1 meter impacts on concrete

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you travel by air with the CL lights?
The Light & Motion continuous lights with integrated lithium-ion batteries can be safely transported in carry on and checked luggage because the batteries are safely installed/integrated in the light (unlike spare lithium-ion batteries). To travel safely just ensure that the master on/off button is in the "off" position.
Most airlines have restrictions for "spare" Lithium-ion batteries and these can't travel in checked baggage. The "spare" lithium-ion batteries also have restrictions for travel in carry on with limits to 2 x spare batteries of 100+ watts. The batteries we use in our products are below 90 watts and most importantly are "installed" in the device which permits them to travel in carry on or checked baggage.
Airline Specifications for Lithium-ion batteries are found in the link below and clearly specify that lithium-ion batteries installed in electronic devices can travel in carry on or checked baggage: Here is an excerpt from the regulation FAQs:
"Question 2. What kinds of batteries does the FAA allow in checked baggage (including gate-checked bags)?"
"Answer 2. Except for spare (uninstalled) lithium metal and lithium-ion batteries, all the batteries allowed in carry-on baggage are also allowed in checked baggage. The batteries must be protected from damage and short circuit or installed in a device."(The Stella batteries are installed).
Battery Life: How many cycles will the integrated batteries provide and how are they replaced?
We use premium Panasonic cells in our lights which are high-capacity, stable batteries. They deliver consistent runtimes with regulated constant output.
Our batteries are specified for 500 cycles but in practice our professional customers using the lights daily are experiencing much longer battery life than 500 cycles.
Batteries that no longer have capacity can be replaced in our Marina, CA factory for a nominal fee. We can provide battery replacement and a full service of the light for $350 (or nominal fee) if and when needed.
In addition to long life, one of the advantages of our integrated battery lights is the ability to travel with these integrated battery lights on carry on or in checked baggage. You can read more about this on our FAQ on "Traveling with your Stella Lights".
If you are purchasing an LED light you will notice that the measurement is in lumens, not watts. We grew up on watts and seemingly overnight watts disappeared and lumens took their place. A lumen is a measure of light visible to the human eye. There are plenty of wavelengths of light the human eye can’t see so lumens simply measure light we can see. But lumens are much harder to measure than watts.
Wedding photographers have to move with speed and grace to capture every important moment of their client's wedding day. Having tools that are lightweight, reliable, and can be handheld means that the photographer can spend more time engaged with the wedding party and let his/her eye decide what is the perfect scene to capture.
