Dynalite continues to evolve and improve on their theme of maximum dependable power in a featherweight package.The Dynalite RK5-1200 Kit, featuring one 500Ws RP500 power pack and two MH2015 flash heads, is a versatile, compact lighting kit that won't slow you down.
Power can be equally distributed (symmetrical) among the 3 outlets or separated into a 1-outlet "A" channel, and a 2-outlet "B" channel (asymmetrical). In either case, overall power can be further broken down from full to 1/4 or 1/2 via an intuitive rocker switch. Finally, output can be further tweaked with the variator knob (think of it as a dimmer), that regulates the pack in 2/10 stop increments over a 2-stop range. In fact, when pumping all of the power through a single flash head in the "A" channel, up to 18 different power settings are possible.
The RP500 offers a three-way modeling light control: On: full; On: in proportion to power; and Off. The housing incorporates a built-in optical slave and infrared receiver. Used with other strobes, the slave "sees" the light and fires instantaneously without having to be hard-wired. Alternately, infrared transmitters such as the Dynalite IRT-1, can be used to wirelessly trigger the pack or other Wein infrared receivers. Further refinements include "plain English" labeling of controls and a universal phono plug input for direct camera sync.
Each MH2015 flash head is a 1000Ws, fan-cooled, minimum weight flash head, with a built-in recessed reflector with 140° coverage and no hot-spot, for even light dispersion. The high reflectivity design provides for greater efficiency in softboxes and light panels.
In addition to the power pack and flash heads, this kit has one power cord, one sync cord, and a lightweight carrying case for storing and transporting the kit. Supplied for use with 120VAC.
At minimum power, it fires a flash at 1/4500 second
