Lumedyne Signature Series Power Packs provide more versatility, control, warranty, power indications... more of everything a location photographer needs.
The Lumedyne Signature Series power packs are the natural evolution of the existing Lumedyne system. Modules such as boosters and high speed modules are still completely compatible. Lumedyne heads can be powered up to 2400 w/s, limited only by your choice of 800 w/s or 2400 w/s flashtubes. Adapters are available to run the Quantum Q-flash X(2) up to 400 w/s.
Existing heads plug directly into the pack, while the Signature Series heads use an extension cord or head cable to plug into the pack.
All the Signature Series packs offer seven f/stops of manual control and have a battery gauge. The very low power settings help with faster film speeds and confined spaces, plus they conserve battery power. Extra bright LED's show the power and battery levels. Signature Series power packs, flash heads, and other Signature Series modules include a standard two-year warranty.
All of the new equipment is designed to withstand everyday use on location, including resistance to rain and splashes. (Lumedyne doesn't recommend that you continue shooting in a downpour; the packs are not waterproof, but they are splash and rain resistant).
Packs are available in 200 or 400 w/s. They are either Basic or Deluxe Packs and they can be purchased with fast or "x-tra" fast recycling. These can be purchased individually or some are sold as part of a kit.
The Basic Packs offer a four light battery gauge and seven f/stops of manual control through one or two flash heads. They are straightforward and simple to operate with one main control and an On/Off button for the battery gauge. These packs work great for manual exposures or can be teamed up with an Auto Module for an automatic f/stop selection.
The Deluxe Packs offer the same versatility with a seven light battery gauge and a TTL setting with optional audible confirmation. TTL is accomplished by using Metz brand SCA TTL adapters plugged into a Deluxe Flash Head. The Deluxe Packs also offer a Manual Trim Control to go variably down to the next manual f/stop. One or two flash heads may be used in manual or TTL without needing extra adapters. TTL functions up to 2400 w/s with boosters added.
