Basic Constant Lighting

Named a Hot One by Professional Photographer magazine in 2011, the uLite is a compact 500-watt constant light with a low price tag. Unlike the competition, the uLite is constructed on a nylon-based polycarbonate with built-in tilter bracket that makes the uLite is extremely durable and heat-resistant. This is an ideal light source when working in small spaces and is compatible with both incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs.

Quick and Easy Setup

Unlike traditional softboxes, uLite modifiers literally set up in seconds. With just a simple push on the uLite softbox's center bracket, this dedicated modifier assembles and locks into place providing control over your uLite. You can purchase the uLite and uLite softboxes separately or in kits.

uLite Softboxes

These compact square and octagonal softboxes are designed specifically for the uLite. Both are rated for up to 500-watts and collapse in seconds making them very easy for travel.
