Visatec 208 overview

  • 1Description

The Visatec Solo 208 Lighting Kit is a versatile, durable and powerful photographic tool especially designed for portraits.  This kit of 2 fan-cooled monolights provides up to 600 w/s of power; use one light with the umbrella as your main source, with the second light with barndoor attached for background illumination.  Getting the gear to the shooting location is easy with the included travel case.  You'll just need to add a pair of the light stands of your choice to complete this portraiture outfit.

The Visatec's straightforward controls and reliable operation assure that neither the photographer nor models will become distracted by technology.  Its short recycle times and stable flash output allows the creation of outstanding images, and you'll have a 3 f/stop range of continuously adjustable power output at your disposal.  They also incorporated a safety circuit which automatically shuts off the lights to prevent damage from overheating.  Visatec's patented reflector mounting ring eases attachment and removal, even with just one hand, and the modeling light employs stepless intensity adjustment that's proportional to the setting of the flashtube.

These are 'auto dump' lights, with no need to fire just to reduce your setting, and the flashtubes can be replaced by the user without any special tools.  Like most monolights, they have a built-in slave to fire from any optical flash of light, and a wide selection of available Visatec accessories helps turn your creative ideas into reality.
