Practical advantages

The light is equipped with brightness and colour temperature controllers and a power switch. Sealed movable controls and power connection are high-quality industrial components for durability and high reliability. The industrial 4 pin M8 standard connector is used to power ULA-1. Connectors, switch and potentiometers are IP67. The housing of ULA-1 is full sealed to IP55 ingress protection class.





Form, design and ergonomics

Aluminium alloy and carbon composite were used for the construction of the ULA-1 , thanks to which the weight of the fixture is up to 200g.  The LED matrix is placed on a hinge allowing it to set at any angle, as well as the folding of the matrix when the light is not used. The proper friction force of the hinge can be adjusted via the adjusting screw. Thanks to the hinge, if the lamp hookes with an obstacle, the shock-resistant LED matrix will fold itself, which minimizes the possibility of damaging the lamp and the camera, eg. when getting into the car or passing with the camera through low or narrow passages.


The ULA-1 light should be configured to the needs by using the appropriate accessories set. You will need a suitable Akurat 10mm® adapter for mounting  and a suitable power cord (accessories ordered separately). To attach the light to the camera equipped with a photo foot, you will need a 10mm – photo shoe adapter. In the case of cameras with a 1/4 inch socket, you will need a 10mm – 1/4 inch camera adapter. There are also other 10mm® Akurat accessories available, for mounting the light or other accessory at any angle, raising or lowering, as well as moving the position of the light in relation to the place of attachment to the camera. See the examples on the photos in the product gallery.

A magnetic barndoors with a diffuser for ULA-1 are available (ordered separately).

The set includes a foam filling that fits into a rigid waterproof high-quality case (ordered separately). We recommend storing the ULA-1 lamp in this case. Details in the attachment ULA-1 Ordering Information.
