Photogenic 900065 overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic 1,500W/s PowerLight 4 Light Studio Kit (120V) is a great way to achieve studio-quality lighting in-house or on location. The kit is built around the powerful, dependable PowerLight. Four heads are provided: two 500W/s heads and two 250W/s PowerLights. They're capable of fast recycling (1.5 and 1.25 sec. respectively) at full power as well as fast flash duration which is ideal for capturing every fleeting gesture with subjects in motion like athletes or dancers. Of course they're great for product work or portraiture as well and Photogenic has you covered on both counts.

Included in the kit are 2 softboxes; 24 x 32" and 12 x 36". The first is an ideal source for head and shoulders portraits and the 12 x 36" box is an excellent sidelight or product light which yields long elegant highlights on reflective objects. There's also a 45" umbrella to use as a fill light for 3-point lighting. Two 8.0' light stands are provided as well as 1 heavy duty 13' stand which is perfect for the included boom arm with counterweight. Use the scoop-type backlight reflector on one of your PowerLights to create sophisticated effects behind your subject. As an alternative to hard-wired sync, trigger your PowerLights wirelessly at distances up to 1,600' via the built-in 32 channel PocketWizard receiver. (Requires purchase of PocketWizard Transceiver) It all fits in the included partitioned, wheeled carrying case.

    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 PLR1250DRC 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.

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'.

Photogenic 900065 reviews

1,500W/s PowerLight 4 Light Studio Kit with PocketWizard (120V) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So worth the money! I love these lights! they have taken my studio photography to the next level. The fact that I can control the power with such precision makes it so much easy to produce the finished product I am looking for. To add, the build in Pocket Wizards makes my life leaps and bounds easier not having to deal with the issue of having to hook up external Pocket Wizards and worry about banging them around as I re position lights while I'm shooting. It is just an all around great package! They could be a little cheaper but lets be honest, we wish everything is cheaper and I know that you get what you pay for so I think the quality that I got fits the price.
