Broncolor Move 1200 L Battery Power Pack with Lithium Battery and Charger
Key Features
  • 1200 Ws, Very Short Flash Durations
  • Speed Mode Full Power Recycling: 0.9 Sec
  • Optional Transmitter for High Speed Sync
  • Symmetrical/Asymmetrical: 2 Outlets
The Broncolor Move 1200 L Battery Power Pack with Lithium Battery and Charger continues to raise the bar that Broncolor itself has set so high as an industry leader. The familiar blue handle and modern design are about all that has remained from previous incarnations. Two outlets distribute 1,200Ws of flash power either symmetrically or asymmetrically over 9.0 full stops and is variable in either 1/10 stop or 1 stop increments. It gets it there fast too, in every photographic sense of the word. Recycling time is a super-fast 0.02 to 0.9 sec (min/max) with action-stopping flash durations of 1/1000 / 1/350 sec (t0.5 /t0.1) at full power and as short as 1/20,000 / 1/8500 at minimum power. That means fleeting gestures and water droplets among other subjects frozen in mid air if desired. It's great for sports and dance in the field as well.

Broncolor Move 1200 L Overview

The Broncolor Move 1200 L Battery Power Pack with Lithium Battery and Charger continues to raise the bar that Broncolor itself has set so high as an industry leader. The familiar blue handle and modern design are about all that has remained from previous incarnations. Two outlets distribute 1,200Ws of flash power either symmetrically or asymmetrically over 9.0 full stops and is variable in either 1/10 stop or 1 stop increments. It gets it there fast too, in every photographic sense of the word. Recycling time is a super-fast 0.02 to 0.9 sec (min/max) with action-stopping flash durations of 1/1000 / 1/350 sec (t0.5 /t0.1) at full power and as short as 1/20,000 / 1/8500 at minimum power. That means fleeting gestures and water droplets among other subjects frozen in mid air if desired. It's great for sports and dance in the field as well.

Speaking of the field, the Move is aptly named. At only 13.7 lb it's lighter than its predecessor and uses an Li-FePo4 Lithium battery that gives you up to 230 full power flashes at full power and up to 50,000 pops at minimum power. You can even run the modeling light on your selected head for up to 2.0 hours thanks to the inclusion of a Continuous Light Adapter. You won't wear out this battery anytime soon either: it's rated for 4000 recharge cycles.

The Move 1200L power packs are compatible with Broncolor HS via firmware version 48.07 or later. Broncolor HS, when combined with an optional RFS2.2 transmitter, enables the Move 1200L to sync at shutter speeds up to 1/8000s on Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera systems with a flash head on Channel 1. For existing move 1200L owners, firmware updates are available via an Authorized Broncolor Service Center.

Granted the Move is a great performer, but in the end it's what you see that count's isn't it? The Move clocks in at an ideal 5500K color temperature, maintained by proprietary Enhanced Color Temperature Control technology. With quality like this, tripping over sync cords is just not an option; The Move 1200 L's triggering options include optical, IR and radio slaves built into the unit. The Move has a radio range of at least 164' and depending on the circumstances, a possible 984'. The Move 1200 L comes with the pack, battery and charger.

    Asked by: Gary
    It can be triggered with Broncolor triggers and some 3rd party triggers (cactus, pocket wizard are several triggers that I've used with the pack. I prefer using the Broncolor trigger for a more streamlined operation and having access to all features.

    I presume newly purchased ones have this already and only needs changing if older release for HS? firmware version 48.07 or later
    Asked by: Cameron
    Yes, newly purchased move 1200L packs are pre-loaded with the current 48.07 firmware from the factory, though if you received a unit with older firmware, the upgrade can be performed for free at authorised service facilities.

    Does this have a slave for triggering?

    Does this have a slave for triggering?
    Asked by: Gary
    Many trigger/receivers are compatible with the Broncolor MOVE pack. If you do not use the Broncolor trigger (the receiver is built into the pack) you may not be able to remotely control the power level, channels, modeling light(s), hyper sync... However if you just want to trigger the lights - then many triggers (e.g. Pocket Wizard, Cactus, etc.) can work with the pack without issue in my experience. I recommend using the latest Broncolor trigger if you want access to those features.

    Can you plug into power source for studio use, bypassing the battery?
    Asked by: Drew
    In short, no. However you can purchase a battery-bypass kit to operate the LED modeling lights on the MobiLED strobe, which comes in handy if you want to keep the modeling lights on for say, video recording, etc..
