The awesome Scorpion Light from Blind Spot Gear just got even better with the Scorpion DUO Kit, which gets you two of the awesome Scorpion LED lights, batteries, charger, super clamps all wrapped in a convenient travel bag. For those who have not heard yet about the awesomeness of the Scorpion light, we’ve covered it here and here; and we’re big fans of the little light that the good folks at Blind Spot Gear have created. It is a really flexible and convenient LED light that may change the way your work whether you shoot documentaries, drama, ENG, corporate work, events – there really isn’t a limit to what you can do with the Scorpion Light. Initially, the Scorpion Light, which was born out of frustration and the lack of affordable, versatile, but yet high quality portable LED lights, was available either separately as a single fixture or in a kit of 4, which included a hard case.
However, Blind Spot Gear have now expanded the range with the Scorpion Light DUO – giving you 2 super versatile and high quality LED lights and accessories for just $599 in the US (B&H sell them here) or if you are in the UK/EU you can buy directly from UK based Blind Spot Gear for £599 inc. VAT.
You can see what these lights can do in the demos below, that Billy from BlindSpotGear has prepared.
