Lowel, the Academy Award winning world leader in location lighting for film & video, introduces a revolutionary tabletop fluorescent softlight, the elegant & easy to use Lowel Ego. Now anyone can create great looking professional results in their home.
Setup is a breeze, plug it in, place it on the table, & turn it on. The result is fast, simple, & beautiful light output that's ideal for taking digital tabletop shots by collectors, arts & crafts hobbiests, sellers, archivists, and desktop publishers. Ego can also be used for DV talking head shots, digital still portraits, and webcam desktop video conferencing.
The Ego has a 1/4-20 screw thread in its base to allow mounting on any conventional tabletop or full-sized tripod, for increased versatility. There is also an accessory desktop background, the Lowel Ego-sweep for more professional looking tabletop results when shooting smaller objects.
Lowel Ego comes supplied with (2) custom 27W screw-in compact daylight fluorescent lamps with high Color Rendering Index for much more natural & realistic color balance than standard fluorescent lamps.

About a month ago Lowel announced their Ego Digital Imaging Light System. I had a chance to use this very portable light setup, and was very impressed by its simplicity and great imaging results.
