Upgrade your lighting kit or studio with the versatile VC-500WL 500Ws Digital Monolight from Impact, featuring a 6-stop power range from full to 1/32 in 1/10 stop increments for excellent control over your light output. Stopping motion is made easy with a flash duration of 1/1,200 to 1/800 second and a fast recycle time of just 1.5 seconds at full power ensures you won't miss the shot. In addition to these capabilities, the light has a built-in 16-channel 2.4 GHz wireless radio receiver with a 328' range for remote triggering using an optional transmitter.
Advanced CMOS Chip Circuitry enables a variety of advanced features, such as the ability to program pre-flash modes for use with your on-camera flashes and reduces the amount of heat generated during operation. The internal temperature is further kept under control with Adaptive Thermal Control technology that keeps the fan working during long sessions. Also, the light has soft-start circuitry that gradually raises the modeling light's brightness upon startup to prolong its lifespan.
The VC-500WL is equipped with a 1/4" port for synchronization using the included 11' cable and it has a low 5V trigger voltage to protect the electronics of both the light and camera. Accessories are easily attached via the S-type mount and it comes with an umbrella reflector that lines up the with umbrella mount on the adjustable 5/8" stand mount for additional stability.
Attributes and Benefits
Built-in 2.4 GHz wireless receiver with 16 channels and 4 distinct groups of flashes
The optional 16-channel, 4 group radio remote control transmitter gives you wireless control of up to seven lights from distances up to 328'. It allows you to adjust functions like flash power, the modeling lamp, audio beep and slave mode
6-stop power control range from full to 1/32 in 1/10 stop increments
Fast recycling time: 0.2 - 1.5 sec.
A large easily-read LCD display on the rear of the unit gives you a clear indication of chosen settings
Pre-flash Detector System to enable use of a wide range of on-camera flashes
Multiple Modeling Light modes: Proportional, Independent, Off
The soft-start function of the modeling lamp protects the subject's and photographer's eyes, and increase the working life of the lamp
Sturdy, functional and professional aluminum alloy housing
Anti-static, tactile rubberized surface treatment provides comfort and utility
Two kinds of recycling reminder: programmable ready beep function, and modeling lamp visual indicator. The modeling lamp dims during recycling and comes on again when fully recycled
Fan-cooling provides longevity for the head's electronics, flashtube and modeling lamp
Over-heating protection: when the flash reaches its maximum operating temperature it slows recycling time to reduce heat, rather than delay the shoot for a cool-down interval
12.5 Amp fuse shuts the head down if necessary to prevent damage by electrical spikes
Low 5 VDC sync voltage protects your camera's electronics
Power Auto-dump drains excess power from the capacitors when you reduce the output to guaranty accurate exposures
Stand bracket with extra umbrella fitting for larger umbrella shafts
Shifting pan/tilt support allows you to use large, pro-sized accessories
Compatible with reflectors: choose from a wide assortment of light-shapers that use the S-Type mount
