Broncolor Siros 800 L overview

  • 1Description

Siros L 800Ws Battery-Powered 2-Light Outdoor Kit 2 was put together by Broncolor to give photographers studio quality lighting on the road free from power cords and sync cords. The kit includes two Siros L 800Ws flash heads, two Li-Ion batteries, a charger, a silver/black umbrella, a softbox with adapter ring, a sync cable, and an Outdoor Trolley Backpack.

The Siros L 800Ws Battery-Powered Monolight is the latest in the Siros series of monolights. Powered by a Li-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 - 2.7 seconds, while normal t0.5 flash duration is as short as 1/7400 sec. There is 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 of 1/18000 of a second at minimum power: 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 L features Broncolor HS for syncing at shutter speeds up to 1/8,000s. 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 800Ws Battery-Powered Monolight

    The Siros L 800Ws Battery-Powered Monolight from Broncolor is the latest in the Siros series of monolights. Powered by a Li-ion battery, the flash head gets up to 440 full-power flashes on a 70-minute charge. The modeling light is a 25W LED to conserve battery power.

    Siros L is Battery-Powered
    A single fully-charged lithium-ion battery stores enough energy for a Siros 800 L to flash more than 440 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 1/8700 sec (t 0.1) or 1/18000 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.
  • Charger for Siros L

    The multi-voltage Charger for Siros L from Broncolor charges the Siros Li-ion battery in 70 minutes.

  • Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for Siros L

    The Broncolor Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for Siros L charges in 70 minutes and will get 440 400Ws flashes from a 70-minute charge.

  • Umbrella Silver/Black 85 cm (33.5")

    Start controlling and modifying your light with this 85 cm (33.5") Umbrella Silver/Black from Broncolor. In general, the umbrella will broaden and soften the light, with larger sizes providing an even softer effect. This model features a reflective silver interior with a black backing to provide a crisper, more focused light, revealing structure and detail in your subjects.

  • Softbox 60 x 60 cm (23.6 x 23.6")

    This Broncolor Softbox is a 60 x 60 cm (23.6 x 23.6") light modifier that creates an even, diffuse light. This type of soft light is useful in product and portrait photography. The amount of diffusion can be adjusted via a removable baffle and front panel. Also, it is able to accept grids and other light modification accessories.

    Included with this softbox are 4 rods for constructing and attaching the box to a light via an optional speedring. Also, it comes with the interior baffle, a front diffuser panel, and a transport bag for storage.

  • Speed Ring for Broncolor Flash Systems

    This Broncolor Speed Ring is an adapter for mounting Broncolor softboxes to Broncolor flash systems. It features color coding on the rear face for easily assembling the softbox. The speed ring comes with a soft case.

  • Sync Cable (16')

    The Broncolor 16' Sync Cable is a heavy duty cable that allows you to trigger your Broncolor flash head with a hard-wired connection. It has a mini pin at one end and a male PC connector at the other end. Although this is a straight cable, the camera end has a coiled section so that the cable doesn't disconnect or pull over the camera if tugged.

  • Outdoor Trolley Backpack

    The Outdoor Trolley Backpack from Broncolor is specifically designed to carry all camera equipment and accessories.

Broncolor Siros 800 L reviews

Siros L 800Ws Battery-Powered 2-Light Outdoor Kit 2 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is an awesome kit primarily for outdoor shooting as these lights can blast out and overpower the sun yet can be used in studio although not AC power feature. Of course you get what you pay for. Like the fact there are no cords or battery packs to have to dealt with. Built very well and includes a very nice wheeled backpack case. These monoblocks fit the majority of my lighting needs now in and our of the studio less long shoots that require AC powered lights. Obviously more bulk then some other lights given integrated battery, but hardly bad as some reviews may claim. I found no issue mounting light with modifier on most stands and absolutely no worry on a C stand. The only minor disappointment is with the BronApp. While being an excellent application I found it too slow when sending signals to the lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior lights! I've had my Kit 2 since August 2016 and they are excellent. If you work outside, 800 Ws is the only way to go. I frequently use them with a Para 133 and less frequently with the supplied umbrella. After seven months I have yet to use the kit soft box. I'm sure it will come in handy someday, but so far my already existing modifiers are fitting the bill better. It's a heavy combo with a Para. Use C-stands and weights, or you'd better have an assistant on hand to brace the stand. The HS function is great and the bronControl app is a God send. Some users bemoan the lack of TTL automation with these lights. Its my thought that if you use exposure compensation with TTL lights (which most people do), you might as well be shooting manually. I never miss TTL when using the Siros Ls, even with rapidly changing ambient light and fast moving subjects. These are intuitive, tough lights. My only complaints are that they are heavy and the trolly bag handle is so short that it keeps tripping me from behind. I'm only six feet tall, but I had to buy another bag, with a longer handle, to be able to walk upright. My 5'3 wife can drag it just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product I'd been lusting after Siros since they were first introduced, but I never pulled the trigger because I wanted mobility. As a result, I bought a Move 1200 L pack. Then, when the Siros L version came out, I simply couldn't wait any longer, so I begged, stole, and borrowed...and I am thrilled! These monolights are fantastic. They're not small (the 800 is larger than the 400), but they aren't unwieldy in the least. In fact, after the initial, Gee, that puppy is pretty big! exclamation, I haven't given it a second thought. As another reviewer noted, they're very well balanced. So far, I've used them for several shoots, and it's awesome not having any cords to worry about. It's amazingly liberating, actually...if I need to move a light, I just go over, pick it up, put it down, and don't EVER have to look down for a cord! Honestly, I like them so much that my beloved Move pack will probably only see the light of day when I need the extra power and/or additional heads! As for the lithium power, I've been very pleased with my experience in that regard with the Move pack, so I didn't have much in the way of concerns for it on this piece of Bron kit. On the last shoot, I used the modeling light extensively over the period of a couple hours while firing a couple hundred shots, and I ended up with 1 bar remaining. Considering the amount of time the modeling light was used, I was very pleased with the outcome. As for the remainder of the kit, the backpack is top quality, fits the gear like a glove, offers excellent protection, and provides good storage. The 60x60 softbox is a nice little box with high quality components and construction. I used it as the main light on my uploaded image. I haven't opened the umbrella. All in all, I couldn't be more happy with the Siros 800 L. It's a very well thought out product that has a load of technology, is wonderfully consistent, is intuitive with its dial selector menu, and oozes quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Broncolor 800 Siros L Completely amazing technology by Broncolor! I was concerned about the size of the mono light at first but that quickly went away when I saw how balanced the light is when on a stand. Even on a light weight stand the balance is excellent. I hope to add a large Octa box to one of these and have no worries it will securely support the weight due to the balance of the light. I shot 835 captures on a shoot with one light at 6.5 power and it still had 1 of 3 bars of power when done for the day. The other (Fill light) was set at 3.3 and had 2 of 3 vars remaining. I am mixed about buying extra batteries. I think I will be able to get away with one spare battery (not purchased yet). I had zero miss fires and ZERO, YES, ZERO change in exposure when shooting fast with recycle time. This is what impressed me the most. I get better results from these lights than from my A/C profoto 2400 packs! One draw back is not being able to use the lights when plugged into A/C. This would be a nice feature in order to use the lights as studio and location. I guess you just cannot have it all! I I am so satisfied wth these lights I plan on switching all my strobe to Broncolor mono lights over the next year or so. So much easier than packs and heads, extension cables, etc. The backpack was designed by a photographer! It rolls great, well built, decent amount of extra room. Nice pop out on the front to add a couple of stands. It would have been awesome to see to mounts on each side of the bag for stand attachments, This would have made it an all in one case for the light weight traveling Editorial Photog. None the less I really cannot say enough about these lights! Light quality....Excellent! Only a color shift (slight) when switching to SPEED setting, and then of course your your kelvin will change with flash duration. I am confident in the decision of the purchase of these lights!
