Photogenic AKC320 overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic StudioMax III AKC320 constant color monolight offers a full six f/stop power range over 320 watt/seconds. It has internal control to ensure the same Kelvin temperature output, no matter what level of output is chosen.

This light is an excellent choice as a main, secondary, or background light. Since it accepts the entire line of the PowerLight reflectors, grids, snoots, and diffusers, the StudioMax III is a good investment.

This monolight also comes in an AC/DC model, which allows use of the light away from sources of AC power, when a high voltage battery is added.

6 F-Stop Power Range
Dial provides infinite flash power settings from full to 1/32 power.
Built In Slave
Highly sensitive, switchable optical slave for synchronization with other flashes.
Modeling Light
Independently Switched, to aid in positioning and focus.
User Replaceable Flashtube
No tools are required to replace this "plug & play" flashtube.
Compact Design
Easy to transport. Umbrella socket and stand mount built on.

    Photogenic AKC320 reviews

    AKC320 StudioMax III 320 Watt/Second Constant Color Monolight (120VAC) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price for a fill light These little lights are perfect for a small studio, or for fill/accent lights in a larger setup.I use two of them for fill lights and have never had a problem. The slave sensor on the back is not sensitive enough to do anything, so I use a radio remote on one and a cabled slave sensor on the other.If I had any complaint, it would be the rotary power control. Since I can get a wrist watch that has ridiculous amounts of digital readout info for about $, seems like these lights could have a simple digital readout showing the power level. I use the power level info on my larger strobes continuously.... the potentiometer on these lights is not definitive enough. I end up with a lot of set-flash-meter-reset-flash-meter-etc....That said, these lights are a great bargain, and they share all the same mounting equipment and accessories with the more powerful 2500 series.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lights We take school dance photos (4 or 5 a year) and the occasional family portrait with these lights. We use them on location since we don't have our own studio setup, so there is a lot of putting up and taking down. Our first set was used (in a studio for about two years) and one of the lights broke after a year or so of very light usage, maybe ten shoots. We bought another as a replacement while the broken one is repaired. The color is great. The output is fine for portraits, couples, or groups up to about 15 people. The finished product looks great, with very little editing. I'm hoping that the new monolight will last and not break like the light we replaced.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay for the price These very basic moonlights are somewhat crude in construction compared to others in this price range. The slide switch is crude in that it lacks a smooth operation. The tiny screw holding the reflector has a tendency to snap. And students have a hard time mounting these lights to speed rings used on soft boxes. On a good side, the case is built to last and provide a consistent output. But they're not up to par with the simple Alien Bees which cost a bit more. We have these and Alien Bees in the school studio and the students always grab the Bees first. They're just easier to control with more options and smother switches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lights and value I use this product for portrait photography and also for product images. The only thing that I would have like to have seen would have been a fan for cooling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I use this product for portrait and commercial shots. The power is good but it does run hot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Preformance I own three of these lights that work wonders. I use them for portrature work as well as in product photography with great results. All my Photogrnic equipment have been great additions to my lighting equipment arsenal. I use them mostly with soft boxs, but have used umbrellas, barndoor, and snoots to hep me get that perfect shot.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slave unit is worthless Just returned two units, they cannot be used as kicker or accent lights. The Photo eye, which is mounted on the back of the unit, will not fire unless it is aimed at another strobe. Just not sensitive enough for normal use. (the photo slave)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cost-Reduced Design has flaws This generation of the monolite is not designed to be nearly as robust as my prior models (PL750 and PL-1500s). After 200 flashes, the internal slave sensor went out and I will need to send it in for repair. The universal mount on the front of this one is not quite universal with older Photogenic accessories or speedrings. I would recommend removing the flashtube before wrestling with any accessories mounted to the speedring. The good feature is that this unit is lightweight.
