Broncolor announces two groundbreaking new products at Photokina 2018.
Broncolor expands their continuous lighting range with a monolight-style LED unit that is compatible with all Broncolor light shapers - an innovative solution Broncolor has made possible for the very first time due to the product’s large angle of radiation and optimised light mixture.
This LED light will give the same highlights, shadows & graduations producing images identical to images lit with flash, which will allow photographers to use just the one product for a wide range of shoots. When working with light shapers, the lamp acts like a flash lamp allowing photographers to continue working uninterrupted, creating a smooth and seamless workflow.
The individual colour temperature setting makes it possible to set additional creative controls, opening up a world of new moods and light characteristics.
The colour performance is built to the exact specifications that have established the Broncolor product range as the trusted leader in photographic lighting.

Broncolor Scope D50
With the Scope D50, broncolor launches a unique, portable surface visualization system, which – by means of a digital image – reproduces absolute authenticity in the shape, color and texture of an object. The result can be viewed in any web environment and on any mobile device. This allows for on the spot digital recording of objects and artifacts that can be examined thoroughly at a later time.
The solution has been developed by broncolor and powered by Truvis, a digital and scientific start-up company that originated from the Digital Humanities Lab at the University of Basel, Switzerland.
The Scope D50 is the most advanced system of digitally experiencing surfaces. It takes multiple images which are then transformed into a mathematical surface model. This technology adds a whole new dimension to analysing a subject as opposed to studying flat photographs. Details that previously would have been lost can now contribute to a greater understanding of artifacts. Conveniently battery powered, the Scope D50 creates a new level of detail in research, creating more accurate reconstructions when studying objects.
"A wonderful moment for researchers. We can see now things that were in fact invisible before."
- Prof. Regine Hunziker-Rodewald, University of Strasbourg
More than digitalization
Based on 48 single images the powerful software creates a surface model.
More than photography
Unlike classical photography, the digital recording of the broncolor Scope D50 is not static but interactive.
More than lighting
The light that affects the object can be moved virtually, making it possible to display details that are barely visible to the naked eye.
