LEDs Improve Flash Photography

The latest generation of CERAMOS and OSLUX LED flash products are reportedly twice as bright as their predecessors. The brightest LED, without a lens, for flash photography is the CERAMOS with its clear encapsulation and is also available with a diffused encapsulation for a neutral white appearance. OSLUX includes a built-in special lens, making it suitable for use without external optics in cell phones or digital cameras. CERAMOS LEDs produce 90 lumens from an operating current of 500 mA and are fully encapsulated. The version with the diffused encapsulation appears radiant white even when not in use while the transparent encapsulation appears slightly yellow. The OSLUX LED delivers 100 lux from an operating current of 500 mA, however higher brightness values can be achieved with higher operating currents.
