FotodioX were showcasing their new range of lighting solutions at NAB, including The Flapjack series. Made of durable lightweight metal, they come in a variety of sizes and can all run off either battery or mains power. The LEDs are mounted around the outer edge and aimed inward at layers of diffusion material, instead of outward like a traditional fixture. This produces a soft, even glow instead of multiple points you get with most LED fixtures. As a result it does not cast multiple shadows.

According to FotodioX, an entire light kit can fit easily in a messenger bag or camera bag. FlapJack lights run on either AC power or an NP-F style rechargeable battery, both of which are included in the kits. The lights are dimmable from 100 per cent to 10 per cent and certain models are bi-colour adjustable. A back-lit LCD indicator shows both light level and battery life status.

The FotodioX lights offer a nice solution for budget shooters looking for a compact and soft lighting source.

FotodioX also had a variety of other lighting solutions that can be used for lots of different applications at their booth.
