Overview
  • 1Description

This is a Lumedyne 400 watt/second Next Generation X-Tra Fast, extra short flash duration flash kit. Next Generation Power Packs offer the familiar simple controls that have been available from Lumedyne for over thirty years. Enhanced manufacturing techniques allow Lumedyne to offer greater reliability and accurate 7-light battery power level indications. In addition, a 50 w/s setting is available on this pack. This is a full F-stop lower than the Classic predecessors, the #065X/Z Packs.

Its main feature is an extra fast recycling time -- 2.8 seconds @ 400 w/s and .4 second @ 50 w/s. Flash duration is 1/1500 second @ 400 w/s (shorter @ lower power settings) for those photographers who shoot with leaf-shutter cameras in bright ambient light. These features make this pack suitable for most sports events, and fashion runway photography.

This pack cannot be used with the Mini Battery, and the usual number of flashes per charge of any Lumedyne battery used with this pack will be diminished by 30%. Not compatible with boosters or speed modules.

The flash head included in this kit can handle up to 2400 w/s. The flash head has a switched modeling light that dims during pack recycle. The coiled power cord stretches to approximately 4 feet. A head extension cable or a pack-to-stand mounting bracket is available if the head is to be used at a greater distance from the power pack.

A quick trickle charger is provided with this kit, and will recharge this kit's medium battery in 5 to 6 hours.

  • Lumedyne HV Ultra Megacycler for Flashes - Extra Fast

    The Lumedyne Ultra Megacycler generates the high voltage necessary to recycle most shoe or handle mount flashes very quickly and produce hundreds of full power flashes per charge.

    Cables for connection to the Ultra Megacycler are available separately for many shoe and handle mount flashes on the market today.

    Cyclers are compatible with Lumedyne and Paramount HV Cables or Quantum high voltage cables for their Turbo/(Z).
    Computerized flashes still use the internal AA batteries to power the internal computer, LCD screen and power reflector but the Cycler does most of the hard work (recycling the flash) so the AA's will last much longer.
    Choose a Trickle or Quick Charger from Lumedyne if you don't already own one. The Cyclers charge with the same Chargers that fit the rest of the Lumedyne System (excluding the #CU1U or #018 Ultra Charger that only fits modular batteries)
