Fotodiox FlapJack Edgelights LEDs – First Look

Fotodiox recently announced a new series of LEDs for both stills and video work. The company’s new FlapJacks’ LEDs use an interesting design with the LEDs mounted around the outer edge, aimed inward at a diffusion layer of material.

The new FlapJacks produce bounce light which is more diffused and softer than conventional LED lights and can be ideal for filling up shadows and lighting up small spaces and can even be useful for some types of product shots.
