Tiffen announces Blender XL LED lights are now shipping. The bi-color Blender XL puts out a tunable narrow flood beam – up to four times the brightness of a traditional 1×1 panel light – yet its durable metal housing is compact enough to hold in one hand.
The $379 Blender XL weighs 2-lbs/9kg and measures 5.375H x 4.25W x 3.125D in. It ships complete XL Fixture, 5/8” Stand Mount with Tilt Pivot, Drop-in Diffuser, Clear LED guard, Switching Power Supply, US and EU Power cords, and D-tap cable.
Blender XL’s design offers advanced engineering features including an array of surface-mount LEDs: 12 cool white/daylight and 12 warm white/tungsten, produce—98 CRI/99 TLCI output. Each LED has its own 45-degree angle optical lens for pleasing light direction.
On the back, dual rotary knobs let users intuitively control the cool white (6000°K) and warm white (3000°K) channels to independently “blend” desired color temperature and full range dimming. Measured three feet away at full strength, the Blender XL can output 3796 Lux/656 FC.
For softer lighting with more spread, the Blender XL comes with a professional drop-in Diffuser. The resulting shadow-free illumination helps light sources and colors blend seamlessly. In addition, a removable Clear LED Guard slides in front of the honeycomb of LEDs to add extra protection through years of rugged production.
