LumoPro confirm development of next generation LP180 flashgun

The LumoPro LP180 is real and coming this year, the company have announced.


Following the leaking of internal company documents last month, American firm LumoPro have come out to confirm that their next flagship hotshoe flashgun is in development and will indeed be called the LP180.

LumoPro claims “the new manual flash will have unique features never before seen in a small flash” though does not specify what these will be, stating that “more details will be announced closer to the launch date” some time later in 2013.

“We cannot express in any human language how excited we are about this new product,” said Kevin Deskins, company product manager. “We can however express it by banging our fists in excitement on our keyboards, ‘lqwlnhqw;ion;sbdq;jgjasfdnj;’ Our team has been working very hard on the LP180. I believe this next generation LumoPro® flash unit will take the first few steps into revolutionizing the speedlight industry.

“We want people to know we’re still here, we’re still listening, and we’re working very hard on this new product. We thank our customers for their continued support and look forward to launching this incredible new product later this year.”

No price or specific release date have yet been announced, other than the LP180 being “affordable” and due at some point this year. For information on the leaked features, click here. To find out more about other LumoPro products, visit their web site.
