Stella CL 1000/2500 UW

Compact innovation,  the Stella CL 1000/2500 is a professional grade hybrid light that can be mounted to an underwater camera rig or handheld above and below the surface for the ultimate in lighting versatility.  The smart electronics allow Stella to maintain a full 2500 regulated lumens underwater but transition to a cooler 1000 lumen level on the surface to prevent from overheating.  The light includes a ball mount to mount on an underwater housing plus a pistol grip for handheld utility.  Use the snap-on Fresnel lens when the wide beam needs to be concentrated into a powerful spot – ideal for isolating 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

    Angelina McEwen Reviews Stella

    Being a professional videographer and working in an industry where technology is constantly changing, I'm always on the look out for more efficient and affordable equipment. This year I attended the annual NAB show where the newest technology is showcased, as I walked past Light & Motion booth something caught my attention. Stella 1000 is an extremely compact light that only weighs half a pound, it outputs 1000 lumens and has a beam angle of 120 degrees.

    If you are purchasing an LED light you will notice that the measurement is in lumens, not watts.  We grew up on watts and seemingly overnight watts disappeared and lumens took their place. A lumen is a measure of light visible to the human eye. There are plenty of wavelengths of light the human eye can’t see so lumens simply measure light we can see.  But lumens are much harder to measure than watts.
