Bolt VB-11 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a bare-bulb design and an output of 180Ws, the Bolt VB-11 Bare Bulb Flash Kit with Cyclone PP-400DR Power Pack from B&H is a specialized shoe-mount flash unit that offers users a quality of light similar to studio strobes in a compact, portable package. The bare bulb design provides a full 360° specular light and is able to work with a variety of optional light modifiers, such as an umbrella mount, colored filters, and grids for creating distinct lighting effects.

The unit features a powerful guide number of 196' at ISO 100 and covers about 28mm when used with the included reflector. The flash can also be used as an optical slave at a range of up to 33'. This mode has two settings to control whether to trigger the flash immediately when the master is fired or to ignore a single preflash.

The VB-11 flash also features a stroboscopic, or repeat, mode that allows the unit to fire multiple flashes in a row, meaning users can capture multiple images of a subject in a single exposure. The locking head can rotate 135° right and 180° left as well as tilt from -15 to 90° for added control and versatility. Additionally, the unit is fully manual and offers power settings from 1/1 to 1/128. It comes with a retaining ring, diffuser, reflector, power cable, protective pouch, and a stand/tripod mount.

Working with the included Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack the VB-11 will have a recycle time of approximately 0.05 to 2.6 seconds. The power pack has two outlets for powering two flashes simultaneously and works with most flash units featuring HV power ports. Also, the Cyclone DR's flash cable ports can be locked once the cable is attached, making the connection extra-secure. This pack is powered by a rechargeable battery and has four LEDs for determining charge. Additionally, it has a belt clip and comes with a shoulder strap.

  • Bolt Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack

    The Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack from Bolt features dual plugs for powering 2 flashes at the same time. It works with most on-camera flash units with high-voltage (HV) connections, including those from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Bolt, Sunpak, Quantum, Vivitar, and Metz (cables required and sold separately). The pack has a fast recycle time of approximately 1 sec and provides up to 1400 full-power flashes, depending on the flash and settings used. The Cyclone DR's flash cable ports can be locked once the cable is attached, making the connection extra secure. The unit weighs a mere 1.2 lb.

    The power pack's microcontroller unit prevents overheating via integrated software and hardware protection. The included PP-400BP Cyclone DR Battery Pack is removable, allowing you to charge it while powering the Cyclone power pack with a second identical battery (sold separately). Also supplied is a 2-prong 100-240 VAC charger for worldwide use. Four LED's indicate remaining battery charge; one light on means 25% or lower, two lights mean 25-50%, three mean 50-75%, and all four mean 75% or higher. Additionally, the Cyclone DR comes with an adjustable neoprene shoulder strap that has a non-slip rubber underside and a quick-release buckle. It attaches to the strap lug on the power pack. The Cyclone also features a built-in belt clip, as well as two rubberized feet for stability.
