Dorr flex panel

Dorr has recently launched a range of studio lighting called Flex Panels ideal for those that want a compact and versatile lighting solution without spending the earth. What makes these lighting panels special and why do they stand out from the competition? Find out more here. 

What are Dorr Flex Panels?

Dorr Flex Panels are LED studio lights that are completely flexible and only 10mm thick. They are available in 2 sizes - 30x40cm and 45x55cm. Two different models are available - Daylight, or Bi-Colour - enabling you to change the temperature of the light from 3000k to 5600k. Each panel comes supplied with a control unit enabling you to dim the light, V-mount battery holder, AC adapter, power cable, X-frame, light stand adapter, velcro strap with v mount adapter and velcro mounting straps. 

 

Why are they better than other lighting rigs?

The key thing that makes these panels great compared to more traditional lighting is their compactness and versatility. they're super skinny, meaning that you can easily light even the most compact studio without worrying about the lighting taking up all the valuable space. The versatility of the panels also means that they can be bent, and attached to walls, a lighting mount - pretty much anything, thanks to the supplied velcro. 

The Bi-Colour version of the Flex-Panel adds, even more, versatility to the mix - allowing you to use a dial to set the colour temperature. Both versions of the Flex Panel allow you to adjust the brightness output of the light quickly and easily too. They're ideal for portraits, product lighting and even video applications. 

There are also accessories available for the Flex Panels to further extend their usage options. Flag panel diffusers and softbox fittings are available to give you softer lighting.

How do they perform?

ePHOTOzine has recently reviewed the Dorr LED Flex Panel FX-4555 DL (The larger daylight panel) and we gave it a recommended award for its consistent light capability. We also loved the fact that it's suitable for both stills and video use and it's also more economical than other studio lights, using less power. We also loved the fact that it can be shaped to give different lighting effects. 

Another fantastic plus point with LED lighting is that it stays on consistently while you shoot, unlike a flash. This makes it easier to compose shots and also see where shadows etc will fall without having to fire off loads of test shots. 

Easy to set up and adjust, the panel can be attached to the provided X-frame which can then be fitted to a traditional lighting mount. We also used the panel as a lighting 'tunnel', to create funky-looking studio product photos.
