The Photogenic PL1250 500W/s PowerLight Monolight (UV) offers speed, power and control, a wide choice of accessories and intuitive operation backed by impressive specs at a very reasonable price.

What good is a light if it keeps you in the dark? The 500W/s keeps you fully informed of your power levels via its simple, straightforward slider control that allows stepless power adjustments across 6 stops. The bright 250W modeling light can be set to Proportional to let you previsualize your final shot when using multiple lights. Other settings include Full On, OFF and manual control of the modeling light output.

The PL1250 recycles to full power in a lightning-fast 1.5 seconds with short flash durations that help you stop every gesture, an attribute which is extremely valuable when working with kinetic subjects like dancers or athletes. The UV color corrected flash tube ensures clean whites and flattering skin tones.
