October 9th, 2012 — LumoPro, a leading developer and manufacturer of off-camera flash equipment, announced today that the LP160 Quad-Sync Flash is currently at the end of its life cycle and will be discontinued. When introduced in July 2010, the LP160, LumoPro’s current flagship product, was a huge success. Designed from the ground up for off-camera flash enthusiasts, the LP160 met near universal acclaim. It was affordable. It was loved. It was—and still is—guaranteed out the wazoo.
Kevin Deskins, LumoPro Product Manager, said, “We’re sad to see the end of this era. It feels like yesterday we were beta testing LP160s with the best minds in the industry. It was a time when unicorns danced, angels sang, and all the photons in the world were falling in the right place. But even as we celebrate the bittersweet end of the LP160 era, we’re looking forward to what the future holds. We’re expecting to see crazy amounts of response on this announcement. All we can say is that we've seen the next generation of our flash, and we can’t wait for you to see it too.”
Authorized dealers will operate with limited inventory due to worldwide demand, international manufacturing situations and new product development. The sale of LP160 units will end in accordance with the stock supply of each authorized dealer.
LumoPro will continue to repair and replace LP160 units covered under the 2-year international warranty. Any customer backorders will be managed directly with the authorized dealer where the unit was purchased.
While striving to maintain quality product and superior customer support, LumoPro will continue to bring lighting and support equipment to the photographic community such as grip equipment, stands, and modifiers. LumoPro products can be found at Midwest Photo Exchange in the United States, CameraTools in Europe, PhotoFreak in Israel, and Shanzhuoboshi in China.
