NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Adorama has released the Flashpoint StreakLight, a brand new portable strobe light for on- or off-camera use.

Leading the way with precise manual exposure on demand and advanced engineering in a solid, dependable package, the Flashpoint StreakLight features high-speed sync, built-in optical slave, four shooting modes and auto-focus assist. Photographers get control from the large LED panel with adjustable output from 1/128 to full, in 1/3 stop increments and soft, even light from using the included standard, parabolic reflector and diffusion panels.

The StreakLight flash has two sync jacks and overheating protection circuitry and also features a wireless remote control USB port.
