The Lowel Ego
The Lowel Ego is a revolutionary tabletop fluorescent digital imaging light. Fast and easy to use, the Lowel Ego creates a beautiful soft light quality, ideal for taking digital tabletop shots. Originally designed for the eBay® seller who needed attractive photos of collectibles, the Lowel Ego has also become popular with food photographers. It’s an effective alternative to conventional light tent systems that limit the size of objects and the angle in which users can shoot from. Its high CRI daylight flo lamps provide accurate color rendering for better quality images. The forward-thinking Lowel Ego design allows users to light objects on a background sweep or in a real-world context such as a dining table with a place setting.
