Dynalite B4 overview

  • 1Description

The Baja B4 Battery Powered 2-Monolight Kit with Case from Dynalite takes all that is good from the innovative Baja flash head and doubles it and packs the heads in a carry case, ready for the road. The kit includes 2 Baja heads, batteries, 100-240 VAC chargers, umbrella/grid reflectors, wireless receivers, a wireless transmitter, and the aforementioned case.

Meant for location shooting and powered by a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 550 full-power flashes on a 5 hour charge, the Baja can also be used on 100-240 VAC power with the battery in the housing even while it's charging. An LED modeling lamp is intelligently employed to avoid taxing the battery. Output is adjustable in 1/10-stop increments across a 6-stop power range. The high-performance head recycles to full power in 3.7 sec. with flash durations from 1/12800 to 1/500 sec and a special C-Mode that allows up to 15 frames per second.

Since the Baja is power cordless, Dynalite has also avoided tethering you to a sync cord with the inclusion of a radio receiver for each head as well as a 16-channel transmitter that can trigger the flash heads and regulate their power at distances up to 590 feet. Canon users can add High-Speed Sync to the Baja's capabilities with the purchase of a dedicated Canon DYBRT616C transmitter. Nikon users need to purchase dedicated BYBRT616N Transmitter and also 2 DYBRR616N dedicated receivers to replace those that come with the Baja. The Nikon transmitter and receivers are available in kit # DYBRT616KTN.

  • Baja B4 Battery-Powered Monolight

    Extremely portable and featuring a 2.4 GHz power control wireless receiver, the Baja B4 Battery-Powered Monolight from Dynalite is a 400 Ws strobe that can be taken on-location without the need for any cables. The Baja B4 uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery which can provide up to 550 full-power flashes on a single charge. Also, users can adjust the power in 1/10-stop increments through a 6-stop power range and it has a recycle time of about 2.9 seconds to full power.

    The Baja B4 features a flash duration ranging from 1/12800 to 1/500 second and an LED modeling light. High Speed Sync is available for most Canon DSLR's when used with the optional DYBRT616C transmitter for Canon cameras. Nikon users need to purchase a dedicated BYBRT616N Transmitter and also a DYBRR616N dedicated receiver.

    A built-in optical slave contributes to the wireless convenience by triggering upon the firing of other strobes. A stroboscopic C-mode is also available for 5, 10, or 15 flashes per second. Additionally, it has audible flash indicators, a glass dome, metal light stand swivel mount, and a standard Bowens accessory mount. Included with the light are a receiver, umbrella reflector, clear protective cover, and a clear protective cap.

  • Wireless Transmitter for Baja B4 Monolight

Dynalite B4 reviews

Baja B4 Battery Powered 2-Monolight Kit with Case is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, quality lights at a good price I've bought two of these kits and have been very happy with them. I'm now considering a pair of B6s. Why should I pay for TTL (which at least doubles the cost of studio strobes) when I never shoot TTL in the studio anyway? I'll use my canon speedlights if I need TTL. These lights can do high speed sync but the remote that comes with them is not capable of it. To shoot HSS you need to buy a remote that is made specifically for your Canon or Nikon. I use these lights with my 5DSR and 5D Mark III. The batteries last a long time. The included reflectors even have a hole for an umbrella that slides into the light casing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent location lighting kit Very solid build. The quality you expect from dynalite. The price you expect too! These boogers aren't cheap but they are great!. Well thought out and executed design. The light is slightly larger and heavier than I expected but still steady on a decent stand. The Bowens s-type mount is pretty easy to shop for and the light is sturdy enough to take a 21 beauty dish or a 56 long strip bank. Radios are not AMAZING but intuitive enough and work well enough to not complain about. Recycle time is totally decent and battery life seems to be good. I haven't worked them very hard yet- or killed them. Says it's not for outdoor use...but come on- who are we kidding... - I would recommend not getting them wet though. I called and confirmed with dynalite that you can run the lights while charging them (awesome) and you do not need to unplug the batteries if your not using them for a few weeks. I'll update once I've worked them a little harder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Observations I purchased the two light kit with case and radio transmitter and receivers to use as fill flash outdoors. Living in Vancouver, BC, where it rains 9 months of the year I haven't been able to do that yet. I have, however, done some indoor headshots with the lights using a Chimera softbox and 7 Speedotron grids. The lights seem sturdy although the light stand mount could be a bit heavier. Having said that, it supported the weight of my Chimera medium softbox (36 x 48) without any problem. The battery lasts a long time and output is good. I used one of these lights in my medium Chimera silver softbox with the internal baffle installed and at 7 feet and ISO 200 got a reading of f11 and 2/10. Using my 20 year old Speedotron Black Line 405 pack (also 400 watt seconds) and 202VFCC head I got a reading about 1/2 a stop less. Pretty darned good, especially considering it is battery powered. What do I really love? No cords! No dinky little sync cords from the light to the PocketWizard. No cords from the flash to a power pack. No cords from the pack to the wall. Even other battery powered units still require cables from the flash to the radio receiver and another to the battery pack. There is a phono in so even if the included transmitter/receivers die you can still hook up your Pocket Wizards. If you are shooting at half power you can crank off another shot at half power instantly. That is great. I have a Photoflex Tritonflash but if you set it at half power it only charges half way and you have to wait for the flash to recharge to get a second shot. They have also stopped supporting the product. Boo! The Bowens mount is very smooth and my 7 Speedotron grids fit the included reflector perfectly. Note that the reflectors only come with the 2 light kit, not the single light. What could be improved? A handle on the back of the flash, rather than the top, would help with positioning especially when using larger softboxes. I would love it if they made a PocketWizard compatible implant so I could use my Sekonic light meter wirelessly. The wireless control of the light output is not perfect. If you have both lights on the same channel/bank and step the power down simultaneously, one light or another will miss the signal occasionally. That isn't an issue for me taking portraits, but if you are a sports photographer with your lights in an inconvenient spot it might make you nuts. The modelling light is pretty wimpy, but in a dark room you can still see it even through a softbox with an internal baffle. Overall, at the price, I think this unit is a winner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid little kit This is a GREAT kit for the price. 4 stars only because there are better more expensive systems. Really solid construction. Only real knock is the recycle time - might be worth buying a b6 as key to keep things firing on pace (or I could shoot slower) Love that you get a carrying case with the two light kit - it's really handy (and it's way bigger than needed) Definitely pick up the Baja beauty dish - it's built really well too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable great lights! I got to work on shoot where all Baja B4's were being used. I was amazed that there were no cable. Zip. Nada. None. Zero!! And the batteries lasted for 7 hours throughout the whole shoot. We were less than half power. The light was beautiful and easily controlled and feathered. I was so impressed I bought 2 sets for myself. I've found no downsides at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far... not so good So I was looking for a non TTL but Profoto B1 style light with battery built in with a much cheaper price point. I have owned B1 (just one as they are super pricey) I also have 2- Phottix (I hated the pack/ head setup and they are medium quality) So I got these instead Downsides are a few my phottix speedrings and reflectors DO NOT FIT even tho they are both S- mount cause glass dome is too big There is no read out for power on the remote so you are adjusting flash blind. heavy and bulky and akward design (not sleek like b1 or light like phottix) Upsides: feel sturdy glass over flash tube is very solid and attached well (but is too big to attach s- mount adapters great price you can charge while using and while battery in installed I am also having problems with missed shots (transmitter issues) dynalite is sending me a 2nd transmitter to try Also bought an A6 it is super big and akward and it was missing its receiver in the box and had a weird European plug. If it still missfires after I get the new transmitter (and the receiver I was missing) they are going back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lights I've ever USed Best lights ever. Totally self contained and so fast to setup on location for shoots. I bought 2 of these kits. Love them. You will need heavy duty stands for these. Small light stands will tip over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baja B4 Dynalite 30 days into using the Baja B4's, light are performing well, good light, intuitive controls layout, batteries are performing as expected. The transmitter is the only draw back, doesnt have the range as advertised, some variance is expected, but i had to be facing the strobes in order to get them to fire, and no further than 50-60'. called B&H they warrantied no problem, will have to see if this cures the issue.
