Photogenic MCD400R overview

  • 1Description

The Matrix MCD400R 400Ws Monolight with Transmitter from Photogenic offers speed, lightweight, and core and convenience features usually found in flash heads twice its price.

The 400Ws Matrix recycles to full power in a fast 1.7 seconds with short flash durations that capture even the most fleeting gestures. Power is variable over 6 stops from 1/32 to full power, adjustable on the flash head's digital display in 1/10 stop increments. The bright 150W modeling light can be set to proportional to let you pre-visualize your final shot, a great benefit especially when using multiple light setups. The MCD400R's UV-corrected, user-replaceable flash tube ensures accurate rendition of colors right down to the subtlest of hues. The lifetimes of both the flashtube and modeling lamp are lengthened by the fan cooling in the high-impact polymer head.

The MCD400R comes with a 12' sync cord, but its integrated radio receiver allows wireless triggering even through walls and other obstacles using the included transmitter. Convenience features include soft push button back panel control and a ratcheting tilt handle that ensures precise, secure placement of your flash head. The Matrix MCD400R comes with a 7" reflector and is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including grids, snoots, parabolic reflectors, softboxes, and umbrellas.

    Photogenic MCD400R reviews

    Matrix MCD400R 400Ws Monolight with Transmitter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light, Beautiful Light. Wonderful light, the new slick design gives a very professional look. The housing seems a bit long, and the modeling lamp seems antiquated. For a new light I would have appreciated the softbox speed ring being included in the cost It would save a whole lot of headache having to order it separatedly. Glad to see that photogenic has built a versatile product and I intend to get a kit later. Thanks.
