The LP180R’s built-in receiver adds a whole new level of fine-tuning to an already great flash.” said LumoPro® Brand Manager, Janae Miller. “We’re not going to ask you to train your dragon, because we’re giving you complete control straight out of its lair.”

LumoPro® Introduces Two New Multitasking Lighting Tools

PLAIN OF METAMORPHOSIS, July 28, 2015— LumoPro® is proud to announce the launch of two new photographic lighting products - the LP742 LightSwitch Speedlight Case and Modifier and the LP605M Convertible Light Stand and Monopod. Both products are designed to be multifunctional and to lighten the load for location photographers.

First up, the LP742 LightSwitch is both a carry case and modifier for small flash. The LP742's innovative design allows the case to be disassembled and used as either a small reflector, a bounce card or a flag. Photographers can protect their flash and control their light with one adaptable solution.

Next, the LP605M is a convertible light stand and monopod, perfect for off camera flash and shooting video on location. Developed with Industrial Designer and Photographer, Eric Au, the LP605M builds on the popular LP605 Compact Light Stand, offering the flexibility of a light stand and the stability of a monopod in one compact package. Retractable monopod feet with a fluid chamber and a mounting adapter enable the user to capture smooth videos or stabilize for rock-solid stills.

"When developing these products, we really tried to keep location shooters in mind" said Janae Miller, LumoPro® Brand Manager. "Weight and space are important considerations, and the beauty of these multitasking products is that photographers can cut down on the amount of gear they carry without losing functionality. For their next trick, our engineers are working on an umbrella that is impervious to light loss, water and photobombs."

More information can be found at www.LumoPro.com. The LP742 will retail for $29.99 USD, and the LP605M will retail for $74.99 USD. The LP742 and LP605M can be purchased from authorized LumoPro® dealers worldwide.
