The Photogenic 1,500W/s Solair 3 Light Studio Kit with PocketWizard (120V) is a great way to achieve studio-quality lighting in-house or on location. The heart of the kit is the Solair monolight. Building on the foundation of the popular PowerLight series, the enhanced Solair has an 8 stop extended power range selectable in 1/2 or 1/10 stop increments with repeat flash accuracy within 1/20 of a stop. All of the power settings are displayed on the large, digital LED screen. The bright 250W modeling lamp can be set to full, on/off, user preference or proportionate to the flash power.
What distinguishes the Solair however, is Constant Color Technology. It's quite common for other brands' color temperature to vary wildly when dropping from full to minimum power. The Solair varies a mere 100K from full to 1/128 power; indiscernible to most people. Another unique feature is the Flash Auto Bracketing function. Under and over power settings can be programmed into the flash head in 1/10 - 1 ½ f/stop increments around the prime or normal exposure.
Three 500w/s heads are provided in this comprehensive kit. The Solairs are capable of rapid recycling (1.5 sec.) coupled with fast flash durations that make them ideal for capturing every fleeting gesture with active subjects like athletes or dancers. As an alternative to hard-wired sync, trigger your Solair heads wirelessly at distances up to 1,600' via the built-in 32 channel PocketWizard receiver. (Requires purchase of PocketWizard Transceiver)
Of course, they're great for product work or portraiture as well and Photogenic has you covered on both counts.
Both 24 x 32" and 12 x 36" softboxes are included in the kit. 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 lights to create sophisticated effects behind your subject. It all fits in a soft-sided wheeled carrying case.
