BH #BRM1200L • MFR #B-31.016.07
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.

    Great Kit!

    I used this the first time 3 days ago for a commercial shoot and I could not be happier. Not a single failure to pop, fast recycle time, great build quality and plenty of power even running two heads.

    The LED modeling light do not work well after 2 days it arrived, the broncolor told me they will only help me to repair it, otherwise ship back to BH and return or replace. I do not think broncolor have that good quality as I thought.

    Amazing bit of kit.

    The kit is very portable with the included trolley bag. 1200w/s is enough to overpower the sun in nearly all situations, and with the new RFS 2.2 remotes and a firmware upgrade, it can do (Broncolor's version) of HSS/HyperSync for even more ambient-controlling power. The build quality and battery life is top notch, and being able to use them at LED video lights is a nice touch. Color Consistency is also great on these heads and pack, as one would expect from Broncolor.

    Amazing performance in a small package.

    I love that the broncolor Move is smaller than the B4 and more power. I can fit a pack, head, and spare battery in my carry on bag internationally. I used to travel with the B2 and B3 exclusively and the savings in weight is much appreciated!

    Rock star of a kit!

    The Move 1200L is almost perfect.� It's powerful, easy to control, intuitive, great color control, quick recycling, short flash duration, great battery life, reasonable weight, compact, 9 stop range, etc,etc,etc! I bought a Siros L kit first, thinking that the 1200L was too expensive. I was wrong. The two kits compliment each other beautifully. My only request is that Broncolor update the Move to accept Wifi and the Bron Control app. Also, if I were to nit-pic, the modeling light should be adjustable and the cooling fan can be a little loud when the modeling light is in use. If you use an RFS 2.2, these truly are nitpics.

    Great Consistency

    The consistency of the color and speed of this portable system rivals the best studio systems out there. Battery lasts pretty well, especially in Eco mode. More than enough power to overpower the sun for outdoor fashion work. Wireless RFS 2.2 is wicked fast, too.

    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?
    Asked by: Gary
    No it does not come with Trigger. You have to buy Broncolor Radio Frequency Trigger separately. There are Camera specific RF Trigger like trigger for Sony, trigger for Nikon, etc Or there is Broncolor RFS 2.1 Transceiver, which can be used to trigger the strobe. Camera specific trigger would be much more relevant.

    Can you plug into power source for studio use, bypassing the battery?
    Asked by: Drew
    According to Broncolor, while it is possible to have the Broncolor Move power pack plugged into an AC outlet while shooting, the power pack will still be operating off of the available battery power, not AC power. The battery can be charged while inside the power pack. However, Broncolor states they personally recommend to shoot while the power pack is unplugged.
