The Norman LH500P lamphead is similar to the LH500, but utilizes an FT16-UV (1200 w/s) flashtube. This head can be used with the 808M power supply, where maximum power is required on a single lamphead. It operates with all Norman Series 500 power supplies including the P404, P808M, P808M/TLC and P808-1200/TLC. Its features include a high-impact resin housing that won't dent or scratch, and a modeling lamp off-on switch.
Note - Fan cooling is required when cutting off the air flow through the lamphead with gel filters, grid, or softboxes. The head is available with a fan (LH500BP) for more demanding applications. A power supply for this flash head is required.

Compact Design

Because this head has no cooling fan, it is one of the most compact and easily transportable head in the Norman Studio Line.

Easy to Control

One tilt control knob is located on top, the other is part of the stand mount. The integrated umbrella receptor is located right below the head.

Easily Replaceable Flashtube

The plug-and-play FT16-UV quartz flashtube is easily replaceable to enable the photographer to quickly get back to the assignment.

Removeable Reflector

Norman lampheads feature halogen modeling lights that burn brighter and last significantly longer than a non-halogen incandescent bulb. This head features an on/off switch for the modeling light.

Modeling Light

Norman lampheads come standard with a protective glass dome that surrounds the flashtube for an added margin of safety.

Long Reaching Cable

A 20' cable comes attached to the head. Head cable extension cables may be added when the head is used at longer distances from the power pack.
