 FilmGrade LED strip lights are designed for cameras. Using a blend of full spectrum phosphors, our LEDs are specially tuned to achieve high CRI & color correct light output at 6500K (daylight) and 3200K (tungsten). Our 95 CRI and 95 TLCI ratings ensure that you can spend more time shooting and less time correcting.

Requires 12V or 24V DC input to operate. FilmGrade power supply (PN 3091/PN 3092) can operate a full reel (16 ft / 5 m) of this LED strip.

Using a third-party power supply? No problem - just make sure your power supply has enough power capacity for the length of LED strip you plan on connecting.

FilmGrade LED strips use the PLUG system, and have female DC connectors mounted on both ends of the strip. Simply plug the power supply into the LED strip receptacle and you will be up and running in a matter of seconds. No extra assembly or accessories needed.

Need to hard-wire these strips? See our DC plug adapters under PN 7094 and PN 7095.

Pre-applied 3M VHB double-sided tape on the back side allows for simple but reliable installation. Peel back the liner and apply to virtually any surface.

These LED strips can be cut to length in 1 inch (12V) or 2 inch (24V) intervals using just a pair of scissors.

Rejoin LED strip segments or connect them to individual power supplies using our solderless connectors. Use PN 3070 for connecting an LED strip segment to open wire, and PN 3071 to join LED strip segments together. 

FilmGrade LED strips are flicker free and fully dimmable down to 0%. For a manual flicker-free PWM dimmer, see PN 3081. For DMX dimming, see our flicker-free DMX decoder (PN 3082).

Product Overview

Waveform Lighting's FilmGrade™ white LED strips are professional-grade lights designed for use on film, TV and broadcast sets as well as continuous output photography applications. They are fully color correct and are spectrally tuned to match the wavelengths necessary to capture full color on camera.

Premium LEDs are specified to ensure not only high CRI/TLCI, but color accuracy within ±25K and ±75K for tungsten and daylight, respectively. Each LED strip is also specified to be within ± 1/32 green color correction.

The back side of the LED strip includes pre-applied 3M VHB® double-sided tape, which provides a simple but extremely strong adhesive mounting method for all of your projects.

The LED strips are 16.4 feet (5.0 meters) in length, and are conveniently reeled for quick and easy application, and can be cut to length in one or two inch intervals (for 12V and 24V versions, respectively) with just a pair of scissors.

FilmGrade LED strips are an indispensable tool in a photographer, DP, gaffer or lighting designer's lighting arsenal.

Exactly what we needed!

We recently updated our Inspection Lighting Standard and required light source to meet the standard. You LED Strips meet the standard and you are able to maintain the required color temperature.

Sample Pack

Ordered the sample pack. More than met my requirements and expectations. This is what I'm going to use once the design is finished. One more design decision made. Happy. My order will include a couple of 5600k reels, power supplies, and dimmers. I'll be back soon!

Best lighting possible!

Waveform lighting has the best lighting possible. I have tried other company's products, and they just simply don't measure up. I won't order from any other company now. And their customer service is top notch. Overall, this is the best company for all of your lighting needs.

Perfect for Photography

I'm really impressed by the colors! The LEDs really brought them out in the tests I did. I could see the minor between very similar shades, and the reds looked especially beautiful! These are definitely the best LEDs I've ever user for photography and accurate color in general.

GREAT led strip lights!

I first ordered their sample of the FilmGrade led strip lights... the 3200k ones are very white and absolutely look killer as under cabinet lighting in my kitchen - the old ones had very poor yelloish/greenish tint... these are white without being blue!

Very good LED

I tested a sample and found it to be excellent for my purpose. I will be constructing new lamp heads for obsolete film photo enlargers from 4X5 to 11x14".

Oops! The cat is out of the bag...

Great emitters, but I need spec sheets with more detailed engineering data.

While the parts are wonderful optically, as an electrical engineer I need a spec sheet to go with them that provides detailed information about the part binning, tolerances, voltage limits, lumen output curves vs. voltage, vs. temperature, and optical/thermal efficiency vs. drive current. Please contact me when a full spec sheet is published - thank you!

Quality lighting strip.

Very nice light from a small, lightweight package. Great technology!

Great idea

Great idea to make these sample kits available! Helpful and reassuring to hold LED strip and connector in hand and see how easy the materials are to work with.

Not only for Film

I looked for high CRI light with similar light quality to halogen lights for office, living rooms to have good viewing of art and books and that one (3200K) is perfect compared to other LED strips I used before with 3000K or lower. It has very led density and therefore is very bright. For some rooms half of the lumens/foot would be better!
