Continuous lighting equipment, or constant lights, provides a steady source of light that is always on for both photography and video shooting applications. Unlike strobe lighting, which emits a short burst of light when triggered, continuous lighting provides a steady stream of light that allows photographers and videographers to see exactly what their shots will look like before they start shooting.

Continuous lighting offers several advantages over strobe lighting in addition to real-time preview. Constant lights deliver versatility for both photo and video, and they produce more natural-looking light. Continuous lighting is also easier for beginners to work with and requires less technical expertise than professional strobe lighting equipment. 

We carry a wide selection of continuous lighting equipment with various light sources, including LED, tungsten, and fluorescent lights. When using continuous photography lighting, it's important to pay attention to factors such as color temperature, brightness, and the quality of light produced. You may need to experiment with different types of continuous lighting and settings to achieve the desired look and feel for your photos or videos.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What Is the Most Efficient Form of Continuous Lighting?

LED lights are the most efficient form of continuous lighting currently available. Unlike tungsten or fluorescent lights, LED continuous lighting consumes minimal energy and produces negligible heat. Since continuous lighting remains on for the entire shoot, the heat and energy efficiency of LED lights are a significant consideration for both safety and budgetary purposes.

Do I Need a Special Power Source for Continuous Output Lighting?

Most continuous output lighting systems are designed to be user-friendly and can easily be plugged into standard electrical outlets. However, some high-power models, especially those used in professional settings, may require a dedicated electrical circuit to handle the increased load.

Can Continuous Lighting Be Used Outdoors?
