The Photogenic AKC850K StudioMax 800Ws Portrait Studio 3 Light Soft Box Kit is a great way to achieve studio-quality lighting in-house or on location at a price point that's friendly to 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 320Ws heads and single 160Ws head are capable of fast recycling 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 portraiture or product work 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. Use the StudioMax III 160Ws head on the included 3' stand to light the background creatively behind your subject. Two 8' air-cushioned light stands are provided to support the other heads and protect them from shock when making height adjustments. It all fits in a soft-sided wheeled carrying case.

  • AKC320 StudioMax III 320 Watt/Second Constant Color Monolight (120VAC)

    The Photogenic StudioMax III AKC320 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 also comes in an AC/DC model, which allows use of the light away from sources of AC power, when a high voltage battery is added.

    6 F-Stop Power Range
    Dial provides infinite flash power settings from full to 1/32 power.
    Built In Slave
    Highly sensitive, switchable optical slave for synchronization with other flashes.
    Modeling Light
    Independently Switched, to aid in positioning and focus.
    User Replaceable Flashtube
    No tools are required to replace this "plug & play" flashtube.
    Compact Design
    Easy to transport. Umbrella socket and stand mount built on.

  • 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

  • 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.
