Novatron 2140C overview

  • 1Description

The Novatron 2140C flash head contains the controls to operate at full power, or to ratio the power and modeling light down one or two f/stops. This flash head cannot be used in the stopping mode by itself. There must be another flashhead operating at full power or damage will occur. This will void the warranty. It comes With a 1000 w/s flash tube (color corrected to 5500° K), 100W tungsten modeling lamp, 25' cord and a mounting bracket for a 3/8" stand and to attach an umbrella. This is a flash head only. A power supply for this flash head is required.

Compact Design
Because there is no fan, this head is extremely small.
Easy to Control
This lamp head features an integrated tilt mechanism for continuous tilting for stand or suspension mounting.
Removeable Reflector
The reflector is built-on.
Long-Reaching Cable
25' cable included. Head extension cables are available in 15 and 25' for heads used at longer distances from the power pack (Longer cable lengths will result in .25 and .3 stop reduction in power, respectively).
Modeling Light
Easily replaceable, 100W, 120V, standard Edison Base Bulbs are ideally found at B&H, or any houseware store in an emergency.

Note:Designed to work with all current Novatron power packs: V240, V400,V600, D1000 AND D1500. Older packs with a 5- pin connector require a #4012 adapter.

    Novatron 2140C reviews

    2140C 3-Way Lamphead is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Option for Strobe Lighting I purchased this lamphead because the two novatron heads I already have didn't have any way of adjusting power (besides diffusion/bounce/distance from subject) This lamphead is a great addition to my kit and does exactly as it should by providing more control over lighting situations. Another modeling light never hurt anyone either! Obviously this isn't the highest-end product out there, but its small size and light weight more than make up for it, as its an extremely portable and cost effective lamphead that gets the job done. Only negative I can think of is - though hard to hit intentionally - the flash bulb is always exposed. Some sort of cover may have been nice in case stuff shifts when packing the lights up. Otherwise great!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quiet, compact, affordable I've used these heads for a long time. They're so light weight and compact - not to mention quiet since there's no fan in them. Once you invest in a power pack, it's relatively affordable to buy additional light heads as you need them. Many light modifiers fit this head. My favorites are the barn doors, honeycomb grid, snoot, the 4x6 Larson Softbox and Westcott Apollo Softbox.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good light, good output, lightweight This is a very good light worth getting if you're on a budget. The build quality is very good, the quality of light is excellent, and the adjustments on the light are easy to control. Of course, once plugged into the power pack you can make further adjustments as needed. We purchased this lens for an in-house project and they were excellent lights. Great to buy if you are working on a budget. They are workhorses and worth getting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from flexible lighting, easy to use, reliable I use this for headshot photography. For my general use, I love the Novatron system. I've used these in the past, and just ordered a new kit. They are fairly lightweight and the system packs up easily in the Novatron kits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Item works just as intended. I like getting replacements for older items that still look the same without upgrading the looks of it.
