About the LP180:
Building on the success of its predecessors, the LP180 Quad-Sync Manual Flash provides an essential solution for off-camera flash enthusiasts. The LP180 introduces a new design and updated features incorporating feedback from photographers around the world.
A ¼-20 mounting thread, a high voltage battery port, the ability to make 1/3-stop power adjustments and an audible flash ready tone are just a few of the exciting improvements in this current model. In addition to innovative features, photographers can expect the same high-quality build, reliability and 2-year warranty found in previous models.
The LP180 has been completely redesigned -- not only for a unique look, but with enhanced functionality as well. The LP180's side ¼-20 mounting thread makes mounting the flash directly to light stands or swivels effortless. This mount makes it easier than ever to shoot directly into an umbrella when using an umbrella swivel, such as the LP634. An eagerly anticipated high voltage battery port has been added for photographers looking to gain faster recycle times.
Another LP180 innovation is the built-in gel slot, which allows photographers to change the color of light output without a separate gel holder or system. The brand-new gel slot is specially-designed for the included gels and bows the gels out and away from the flash head to avoid melting or distorting the gels’ shape. Plus, the LP180 includes a built-in wide angle diffuser and bounce card, giving greater control over light output, even without extra modifiers.

The LP180 also features a redeveloped mounting foot fitted with a sliding latch for securely locking the flash on swivels, cameras or triggering devices. The refreshed foot also features a drop-down locking pin that works seamlessly with the popular Frio™ double-locking cold shoe for a secure mounting solution.
An upgraded battery door operates smoothly with improved spring-loaded hinges. The new design also introduces a backlit LCD screen to the LP180 interface for easy flash control and easy use in low light.
The updates don’t stop with a contemporary look; the LP180 insides have been refined as well. All new software powers an updated interface with added features such as an audible flash ready tone and sleep mode. A thermal cut-off slows recycling time instead of cutting off the flash, expanding the limits of safe use with a high voltage battery.
The LP180’s 1/3-stop increments enable finer control over power adjustments. And with minimum power going all the way down to 1/128, photographers can match the needs of any situation. Build quality of the LP180’s internal components has also been improved to make one of the most durable speedlights on the market, even stronger.
As with previous Lumopro® flashes, the LP180 features sync via standard hot shoe, PC port, 3.5mm miniphone port, and optical slave. The optical slave features 11 different settings – one simple slave mode and 10 alternative slave modes that ignore between one and ten pre-flashes. More information on using various slave modes can be found in the included Owner’s Manual.
