Flashtubes and modeling lamps are user-replaceable, making these lights a safe bet for location work.
This light includes a white umbrella.
Photogenic AKC160 Studiomax III 160W/s Monolight
The Photogenic AKC160 Studiomax III 160W/s Monolight is an ideal way to add a lightweight (2.6 lb) fixture to your kit for a main light, backlight or fill light. The AKC160 offers a six stop power range from 5.0 to 160W/s, steplessly adjustable via a simple knob. Constant Color technology ensures that the color balance remains within 200K of an ideal 5,400K regardless of the power level chosen, to insure shot to shot consistency and minimize post-production work.
The AKC160 comes with a UV color corrected, user-replaceable flash tube that renders fabrics and flesh tones accurately. The monolight comes with a 7.5" high-gain reflector but accepts the entire line of Photogenic Quick-Change reflectors, grids, snoots, and diffusers. An AC cord, sync cord, 100W quartz modeling lamp and a protective cap are also included.

The AKC160 incorporates surge protection to handle power spikes

Impact White Translucent Umbrella (43")
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.
This Impact 43" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in mid-length portraits for one or two persons.
