Photogenic AKC160 overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic AKC325K 320W/s Basic Studio 2 Light Soft Box Kit (120V AC) is a great way to achieve studio-quality lighting in-house or on location at a price point that won't strain your budget. The kit is built around the lightweight, dependable StudioMax III flash head. Like its big brother the Solair flash head, the StudioMax III employs Constant Color Technology. While it's quite common for other brands' color temperature to vary wildly when dropping from full to minimum power, the StudioMax III varies a virtually indiscernible 200K from full to 1/128 power. The two 160W/s heads are capable of fast recycling (1.5 sec.) at full power as well as fast flash durations at minimum power 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 is 24 x 32" soft box- an ideal source for head and shoulders portraits. The 45" umbrella is perfect for use as a fill light. Two air-cushioned 8.0' light stands are provided to support the heads and protect them from shock when adjusting their height. It all fits in a soft-sided, wheeled carrying case.

  • AKC160 Studiomax III 160W/s Monolight

    The Photogenic AKC160 Studiomax III 160W/s Monolight is an ideal way to add a lightweight (2.6 lb) fixture to your kit for a main light, backlight or fill light. The AKC160 offers a six stop power range from 5.0 to 160W/s, steplessly adjustable via a simple knob. Constant Color technology ensures that the color balance remains within 200K of an ideal 5,400K regardless of the power level chosen, to insure shot to shot consistency and minimize post-production work.

    The AKC160 comes with a UV color corrected, user-replaceable flash tube that renders fabrics and flesh tones accurately. The monolight comes with a 7.5" high-gain reflector but accepts the entire line of Photogenic Quick-Change reflectors, grids, snoots, and diffusers. An AC cord, sync cord, 100W quartz modeling lamp and a protective cap are also included.

    Six Stop Power Range
    Power levels, accessed on the rear panel, are adjustable from 5.0 to 160W/s with a simple twist of a knob
    Fast Recycling
    The AKC160 recycles to full power (160W/s) in only 1.5 seconds, and 0.5 sec. at minimum power to catch even the most fleeting gestures
    Modeling Light
    The AKC160's 100W quartz modeling light allows you to preview the effect of your lights before tripping the shutter
    Low Trigger Voltage
    Digital cameras can be used with Photogenic monolights without fear of damage to the camera's electronics
    User Replaceable UV Flashtube
    Replacing this "plug & play" flashtube is a snap. The UV coating ensures clean whites and flattering flesh tones
    Ready Indication
    A ready light lets you know when the flash is fully charged
    Power off Auto-discharge
    As a safety precaution, the AKC160 drains the capacitors when you turn it off
    Surge Protection
    The AKC160 incorporates surge protection to handle power spikes
    System Compatibility
    The AKC160 is compatible with all Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories

  • EC45BC Eclipse 45" White Flat-Panel Umbrella

    This umbrella is designed for use with strobe lighting.

    Note: Using this umbrella with modeling lights or constant lights brighter than 300 watts for prolonged sessions will result in eventual discoloration or scorching.
