Flashpoint was founded in New York City in 1991 by folks who wanted lights, stands, and accessories that were built for the long haul, just like we were. We wanted equipment that would work just as hard as we did, and gear that was just as durable and dependable as we are 

Our first product was the Flashpoint Monolights series, back when the minimum recycling time was 1.8 and 2.1 seconds (for 600Ws and 1200Ws, respectively). Now, 30 years later, we offer lights including the Flashpoint XPLOR 600, with recycle times as low as 0.01!  

 Next, we fully dedicated ourselves to being an industry game-changer, and debut the first battery-powered monolightWe eliminated cluttered wires and made it easy and accessible to take your lights with you on-location, in-studio, or anywhere your creative passions areThis battery-powered moonlight became wildly popular throughout the industry, andFlashpoint was established as “the professional’s choice for power and performance” and “your source for lighting inspirations” 

 In 2012, we launched a 360Ws batterypowered monolight and a budget studio flash, ensuring that all photographers had access to light up their vision. In partnership with Godox, we also produced the StreakLight, and began a relationship that would allow us to deliver great quality lights at unbeatable price points, always serving all creators. With the support of Adorama, our exclusive retailer, we are able to offer you great deals, quick shipping, excellent customer service, and awesome photography gear kits. 

Flashpoint is just like you, the creator: we always continue to innovate, strive, and grow, forever alongside our creative community. The same inspiration that led to our founding in 1991 continues to kindle our passion well into the 21st century.
