Photogenic AKC990BRK overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic AKC990BK 960W/s Portrait Studio 3 Light Soft Box Kit (AC/DC) is a great way to achieve studio-quality lighting in-house or on location, even when there's no electricity available, at a price point that won't strain your budget. The kit is built around the lightweight, dependable StudioMax III AC/DC 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 320W/s head is capable of fast recycling (3.0 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, the heads are great for product work or portraiture as well and Photogenic has you covered on both counts. The kit includes a 24 x 32" soft box- an ideal sized light source for head and shoulders portraits or small to medium sized products. The 45" umbrella is perfect for fill light. No electricity? Shooting at the beach? No problem. The StudioMax III heads run on household AC power or DC power. (Requires purchase of optional AKB-1 Battery.) Two air-cushioned 8.0' light stand are provided to support the heads and protect them from shock when adjusting their height. Slip the shallow background reflector on the third included head and mount it on the kit's 3.0' stand for creative background effects. The kit comes with power and sync cords, modeling lights, flash tubes, an umbrella reflector and a background reflector. It all fits in the included rolling kit case.

  • StudioMax III Constant Color 320 W/S Monolight (120VAC/12VDC)

    The Photogenic StudioMax III Constant Color Monolight offers a full six f/stop power range over 320 watt/seconds. It has internal control to ensure the same Kelvin temperature output, no matter what level of output is chosen.

    This light is an excellent choice as a main, secondary, or background light. Since it accepts the entire line of the PowerLight reflectors, grids, snoots, and diffusers, the StudioMax III is a good investment.

    This monolight is capable of operating with its optional battery pack, for working outdoors away from AC power.
