The Photogenic PL1250DRT 500W/s PowerLight Monolight (Top Mounted) offers speed, power and control, a wide choice of accessories and intuitive operation backed by impressive specs at a very reasonable price. This top mounted version positions the 5/8" stand mount on the top of the unit for hanging from a ceiling pipe or overhead system.

What good is a light if it keeps you in the dark? The 500W/s 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 6 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 PL1250DRT recycles to full power in a lightning-fast 1.5 seconds 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. The PL1250DRT comes with a 7.5" reflector and is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including grids, snoots, parabolic reflectors, softboxes and umbrellas.

Top Mounting
This version of the PowerLight PL1250DR is made to hang from an overhead support system or from a suspended ceiling pipe like those seen in the theater. For this reason, the 5/8" (16 mm) female stand mount is located on the top of the fixture and the name is PL1250DRT
