Westcott Flex: Bend Me, Shape Me, Any Way You Want To

by Hugh BrownstoneLeave a Comment

Well-known photo and video lighting company introduces the Westcott Flex as it becomes exclusive North American and Australian distributor of new and novel LED mat technology.

The basic stats on the Westcott Flex would be enough to warrant attention: a dimmable LED panel with a CRI of 95 (daylight) and 98 (tungsten), arrayed in a 10” x 10” matrix, with a beam angle of 140° and lux rating of 1,900 and 1,600, respectively, at 1 meter.

Add in the facts that either variant weighs just 5 ounces and is actually a bendable, water-resistant mat less than half an inch thick, and it definitely qualifies as noteworthy.

The Flex isn’t shipping yet, but you can sign up on their web site to keep abreast of the latest news on it.

At a mere 5 ounces, the bendable 10” x 10” Flex features a surface lined with 166 LED diodes and outlined with a moldable ¼” black frame. This extremely compact design allows it to be easily concealed on-set or location, and effortlessly stored for travel.

The Westcott Flex will be available in both tungsten and daylight options. The Flex Tungsten omits an impressive 1,600 lux of illumination at 1 meter with a 98 CRI, while the Flex Daylight offers a slightly brighter 1,900 lux at 1 meter with a 95 CRI. A dimmer will be included to adjust the light output from 5% to 100% for precise output.
