The Photogenic PLR500DRC Radio Solair 500W/s Monolight with PocketWizard Receiver offers speed, power and control, a wide choice of accessories and intuitive operation backed by impressive specs at a very reasonable price.
The PLR500DRC keeps you fully informed of your power levels via its large highly readable digital display. Power settings are adjustable in 1/10 or ½ stop increments across an impressive 8 full stops. The bright 250W modeling light can be set to Proportional to let you previsualize your final shot when using multiple lights. Other settings include Full On, OFF and manual control of the modeling light output. The PLR500DRC Radio Solair even allows 2 or 3 shot bracketing around your prime exposure.
The PLR1000DRC recycles to full power in a lightning-fast 1.5 seconds at full power and 0.5 seconds at minimum power with short flash durations that help you stop every gesture, an attribute which is extremely valuable when working with kinetic subjects like dancers or athletes.
Convenience features include a test button, optical slave and integral handle. A PocketWizard radio remote is built into that handle so that you can say goodbye to tripping over PC cords in favor of wireless triggering of your PowerLight from distances up to 1,600'. The UV color corrected flash tube ensures that blue doesn't creep into your color balance on subjects like a bride in her gown. It also ensures natural, flattering skin tones.
The PLR500DRC comes with a 7.5" reflector and is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including grids, snoots, parabolic reflectors, softboxes and umbrellas.
