The 800Ws Siros 800 L Battery-Powered Monolight from Broncolor is the latest in the Siros series of monolights. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the flash head gets up to 220 full-power flashes on a 70-minute charge. The modeling light is a 25W LED to conserve battery power.

Speed is central to the design of the Siros L. Recycling is a lightning fast 0.03 to 2.7 seconds, while normal t0.5 flash duration is as short as 1/7400 sec. There's also a Speed Mode that bypasses the Siros L's Enhanced Color Temperature Control to prioritize short flash durations and fast recycle speeds. The result is a flash duration fast enough to freeze water droplets and other stop action effects. The Siros L has a 9-stop variable power range from full power all the way down to 2Ws. While at higher settings it's possible to out-flash the sun, lower settings allow use of even the widest apertures for your desired effect. All functions are available on the simple, intuitive panel via an ergonomic rotary controller, but you also have access to the menus and controls of up to 6 units using your tablet or smartphone and the free bronControl app.

Siros 800 L features Broncolor HS for syncing at shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. Broncolor HS requires an RFS2.2 transmitter, available for Canon, Nikon, and Sony cameras. Existing Siros owners should ensure that their lights have the latest user-upgradable firmware, available online at www.bron.ch/sirosfirmwareupdate/.

Siros L is Battery-Powered
A single fully-charged lithium-ion battery stores enough energy for a Siros 800 L to flash more than 220 times, and it does that at maximum power.
Siros L is Fast
In only 0.03 seconds, your Siros L is ready again. The flash duration can as fast as 1/4400 sec (t 0.1) or 1/7400 sec (t 0.5).
Cut-Off Technology
Flash duration and light output are the two decisive factors in light control. A microprocessor in Siros L will calculate the shortest flash duration for a given energy setting.
Speed Mode
In Speed Mode, fast charging and short flash times have absolute priority. In this case, the calculation of constant color temperature (ECTC) is suppressed for quick results.
Siros L is Simple
Very simple operation using the single rotary controller. Alternatively, you can use the advanced, intuitive app.
Siros L is Powerful
The high light output leaves no photographer standing in the dark. It can even challenge sunshine. And with a control range of 9 stops, you can still use wide-open apertures when needed.
Siros L is LED
With its low power consumption, the 25W LED module provides bright modeling light at a color temperature of 3200K. The light characteristics are absolutely comparable with the modeling light from a mains-operated Siros S.

where do I connect the pocket wizard to the Siros?
Asked by: Toan
If you look at the "Guides & Manuals" link under the "In The Box" section under the Overview tab on our website for the Broncolor Siros L 800Ws Battery-Powered Monolight, B&H # BRS800LWFR2B, page 3 shows the location of the sync socket, labeled as #6 on the image. It is located on the bottom of the unit next to the mini-USB port and across from the Mains power switch. The monolight has a 1/8" (3.5 mm) miniphone sync terminal. You would connect the PocketWizard MM1 Miniphone to Miniphone Cable -12", B&H # WICMM16, from the sync terminal on the flash to the sync terminal on your PocketWizard transceiver/receiver.

I have five of these siros 800 L lights which are fantastic and 10 batteries. I am wondering if there is some sort of charging dock that can charge multiple batteries at the same time. At the moment I have 5 seperate chargers which is a lot of cords to plug in.
Asked by: Dan
Thanks for your question and support of broncolor! Unfortunately at this time a multi-dock solution is not available but we will certainly share it with our product planners.

question

Are theses unit RFS? If so is it 2.1 or 2.2? Will they work with Pocket Wizards?
Asked by: Fabio
The monolights in this kit utilize the Broncolor RFS 2.1 receiver which cannot be triggered with a Pocket Wizard unit. However, you can connect a Pocket Wizard unit to the monolight and trigger them using another Pocket Wizard unit on camera.
