MSRP: $179.99


Discontinued & Out of Stock

January 4, 2013 - LumoPro®, a leading developer and manufacturer of off-camera flash equipment, announced today that a new flagship flash, LP180, is currently in development. The new manual flash will have unique features never before seen in a small flash. More details will be announced closer to launch date, which is estimated to be later this year. 
The LP180 will be the newest release in the successful line of LumoPro® flashes. Beginning with the LP120 in 2009 and continuing with the release of the LP160 in 2010, LumoPro® has shown a strong commitment to the off-camera flash community by developing durable and reliable flashes at an affordable price.

"We cannot express in any human language how excited we are about this new product," said Kevin Deskins, LumoPro® Product Manager. "We can however express it by banging our fists in excitement on our keyboards, 'lqwlnhqw;ion;sbdq;jgjasfdnj;' Our team has been working very hard on the LP180. I believe this next generation LumoPro® flash unit will take the first few steps into revolutionizing the speedlight industry." 

More information will be provided later in the development of LP180 and shared with customers in the coming months. Deskins also stressed, "We want people to know we're still here, we're still listening, and we're working very hard on this new product. We thank our customers for their continued support and look forward to launching this incredible new product later this year."
While striving to maintain quality product and superior customer support, LumoPro will continue to bring lighting and support equipment to the photographic community such as grip equipment, stands, and modifiers. LumoPro products can be found at  Midwest Photo Exchange  in the United States,  CameraTools  in Europe,  PhotoFreak  in Israel, and Shanzhuoboshi  in China.

The LP160 Quad-sync flash builds on the success of previous models, like the LP120, giving amateur and professional photographers even more features. Today's digital photographers are looking for powerful, small flashes that are reasonably priced and well constructed. The LP160 is the flash that delivers the power, features and price point to meet that need.

As with previous projects, LumoPro crowd-sourced the additional features from the Strobist community, a popular online group of photographers devoted to working with small, battery powered flashes. This creative and sophisticated group led the developers to create the tool to meet the demand.

Improvements included in this new model are impressive and built to fit the needs of today's working photographers. The LP160 features twice the power and quicker recycling for faster shooting. The Full to 1/64th power setting and digital optical slave make the flash more usable under low light situations. A 7degree tilt, metal hot-shoe, electronic zoom, and improved body construction add to the long list of features for professionals.

All other features from the popular LP120 are present, including the Optical slave, PC and Miniphone syncro ports, and manual power adjustments. The power output of the LP160 is equivalent to the top of the line flashes from camera manufacturers such as Canon and Nikon.

An exciting new feature will allow even more integration with existing flash systems: the new digital optical slave will ignore the 'pre-flash' - a common feature of TTL flashes for obtaining exposure information. This important addition enables photographers to manually control the LP160, in conjunction with their TTL flashes, without transmitting a TTL signal or exposure information, or having the LP160 flash when the pre-flash activates.
