Flora™, a light bank with a revolutionary design, delivers powerful illumination. The light bank is suitable for still photography or filmmaking. Comparing to other high wattage light banks, Flora™ light bank has several distinguished advantages, including smaller in size, improved rigidity, easy installation, and convenient in moving from place to place. Comparing to other light banks with similar size, the Flora™ light bank can install high-wattage fluorescent bulbs.
The body of Flora™ light bank is made out of flame-retardant Nylon. High quality nylon is used to extend the lifespan of the product, and to reduce surface cracks through aging and normal wear and tear. The fire resistant nylon has passed several tests that fire will die out within three seconds after the source of fire is removed.
The advantage of off-center tilting design firmly supports the light bank, and allows the light bank to be compact in size comparing to other light banks in its class. The conventional tilting mechanism is relative simple, but has a tendency of surface cracking after a long period of use since the mechanism cannot withstand the combined weights of the light bank and its bulbs. The newly designed off-center titling uses iron parts as its main source of material, which does not only maintain the merits of the old design, but also improves the titling rigidity.
The installation of Flora™ light bank and its softbox is extremely simple. Smart design allows users to pop up the softbox with ease and completes the whole assembly for less than 30 seconds.
Constructed with the re-designed hexagon structure, the light bank tends be more resistant to impact. Flora™ light bank is capable of withstanding much greater impact that the bank shows no signs of cracks or failure even when it is dropped from the top of a three-story building. Flora™ light bank is designed for ergonomics that is designed with a large soft grip for easy and convenient handling. A larger handle allows users to better adjust and tilt the light bank. With the foaming wrapping around the handle, the design helps the user to grab the handle easily.
Flora™ EASY SOFTBOX
No more nuts and bolts necessary when assembling the softbox. Putting together a softbox sometimes can be a daunting task and can frustrate some people. With the redesigned easy softboxes for Flora™ light bank, users are not required reading any manual before operating the unit. This foolproof mechanism is so intuitive that users can ready the softbox as if they open an umbrella. High quality reflective materials used inside the backcover offer maximum reflection to the subject. The new (35” diagonal) softbox is also lightweight and small in size.
65W Daylight Photo Energy Bulb
The use of fluorescent bulbs has yielded several distinctive advantages. With the advancement in technology, the fluorescent bulbs can be manufactured to produce the color temperature at 5500K, known as daylight. Unlike 6400K or 3200K that leads the image to be either too cold or too warm, the 5500K-daylight temperature is perfect for still photography as well as filming since it reveals the subject’s real color. Technology does not only help the fluorescent bulbs reaching the daylight temperature, but also improve the mechanism of the bulbs, making the illumination process more efficient and energy saving. Nowadays, an 65-watt fluorescent bulb produces about the same brightness of a 260-watt incandescent bulb. Linco Inc. can supply either 110 or 220-volt fluorescent bulbs to match the local electricity voltage. The CRI (Color Rendering Index) of fluorescent bulbs supplied by Linco Inc. is greater than 90.
Flora™ Carrying Case
A lighting kit is not complete without a carrying bag. A well-designed bag does not only help carrying the lighting kit from place to place, it also protects the lighting kit stored within. The carrying bags used for storing light banks and accessories have several substantial improvements. Inside the carrying bag, several 0.75” foam padding，are inserted around the inner layer of the bag, functioning as a cushion for absorbing impact from any directions. The bag is also water-resistant and has three adjustable compartments to meet the user’s needs. Dual zippers allow the bag to be closed with ease.
