Stella Video Light
The Light & Motion Stella Video Light is a compact video light that is at home both on the surface and underwater. The wide angle LED Array produces an even beam with no hard edges or hot spots so you can bring light and colour back to your pictures and videos. Factory sealed you never have to worry about flooding or leaks because charging the internal battery is done through the body with no risk of water ingress.
Who's the Stella For?
The Stella is made for photographers and videographers, with a YS Mount and a 1/4-20 Adaptor or Cold Show Mount you can attach it to arms and tripods to illuminate your scene. A 25° Fresnel can be used to modify the beam into a tighter spotlight to highlight subjects.
- Boost mode allows the light to run continuously at 2500 lumens in water plus it can provide a temporary boost in air for 30+/- seconds enabling the perfect shot
- Integrated Li-ion battery: Run completely cord-free for 45 to 415 minutes and because the battery is integrated into the device (permissible in both checked and carry-on luggage)
- Multiple Power Options: For longer shoots topside simply plug the CL into any AC or DC power source including Gold-mount/V-mount battery “bricks” (with optional DTap cable)
- 120° Native Beam Angle (90° UW): Output can be easily focused to 25° with the included snap-on Fresnel Modifier
- High Output COB “Chip on Board” LED: Eliminates the multi-shadow effect that can be a problem with panel-style light sources while also keeping the light’s footprint small
- Rugged Waterproof Construction: Designed to perform in the most challenging environments, the platform is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters (IP68 Rating) and tested to resist 1-meter impacts on concrete

Light and Motion Stella Video Light - Features
|Battery Level Indicator|
?Some torches come fitted with a battery level indicator so you know how much power you have left. Most are a colour coded light that gives you a rough idea of how much power you have left but some will estimate your remaining time in minutes.Close.
?Torches require a power source and either have a built in rechargeable battery, removable rechargeable battery or a standard size disposable battery.Close.
|Built in, Rechargeable, Li-Ion|
?Narrow beams are great for cutting through low visibility, helping a diver to see further without creating backscatter from the light reflecting off particles in the water. Narrow beams are able to penetrate further and are ideal for looking in openings or under rocks Wide angle beams are best for good visibility and spread the light over a larger area. A larger lit area means that the torch does not have to be continuous moved and are particularly effective on night divesClose.

?Advances in bulb technology has created a number of different options for light source, each with their own advantages and disadvantage but most today are LEDs. LED - unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, Light Emitting Diodes don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material. An LED is a lot more efficient than a filament bulb and also a lot more durable than both filament and HID bulbs.Close.
?If measured, the buoyancy of the torch is how positive or negatively buoyant the torch is in water. Usually measured in fresh water, knowing the buoyancy of your torch can help with your overall buoyancy and weighting so you can be better neutrally buoyant when diving. Measured in GramsClose.
|Max Burn Time (mins)|
?The length of time that the torch will provide light at 100% powerClose.
|Max Depth (m)|
?The maximum depth that the torch has been rated to by the manufacturerClose.
|Max Output (lumens)|
?The maximum brightness of light the torch can produce at its highest setting.Close.
?There are a number of different switch types available. Push buttons require the diver to depress a button to activate the torch and change power settings. Many use a magnet on the outside of the body so that no part goes through the body itself but some still do with seals to prevent water ingress. Twist ends, collars and heads are very common. The diver simply twists the bottom cap or head unit to complete or break the circuit. Twist caps usually have a double o-ring to protect the battery and electronics from damage. The disadvantage of a twist cap is that if the diver was to unscrew the cap too much, there is a risk that the torch could flood. The O-Rings also wear with use so prolonged use can result in flooding. Kinetic torches are controlled by motion and are the most water tight solution.Close.
?Torches are usually either a polymer or anodised aluminium for corrosion resistance. Plastic parts are cheaper but more fragile to damage.Close.
?Whether the entire torch (including batteries) is held in the hand or whether the light unit is connected via an umbilical cable to a seperate battery unit for extra capacity and burntime. Photo / Video Lights have an even beam that floods the scene with light with no hard edges or hotspots so it doesn't look odd or stand out in your pictures. Ultra Violet Lights use a specific wavelength of blue light, not usually Ultra Violet, that excite certain parts of animals that cause them to glow and fluoresce showing unusual patterns that the naked eye cannot seeClose.
?Whether the torch offers multiple power levels other than the standard on and off.Close.
