The Photogenic ION Inverter with PL1250DRC 500W/s Flash Head Umbrella Kit is an ideal way to bring the benefits of studio lighting into the field independent of AC power. The kit includes an ION Inverter System with battery, a PL1250DRC AC monolight with reflector, an 8.0' light stand and a 45" black/white Eclipse umbrella.

The ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System allows you to take your studio strobes on the road or off the road without electricity and without noisy generators or bulky old-style inverters. Weighing in at only 3.5 lb including its battery, the Ion measures only 7.5 x 4.4 x 3.3" but is able to deliver hundreds or even thousands of full power flashes depending on the flash head in use. With a fully charged battery the included PL1250DRC will get an impressive 500 full power flashes with a recycling time of 3.8 seconds. Of course, you can double or triple your capacity by simply purchasing extra batteries which can be charged apart from the inverter. Extra chargers are available to charge more than 1 battery concurrently.

The PL1250DRC PowerLight has a color corrected flash tube, a 500W/s output variable over 6.0 stops in 1/10 stop increments and a 250W modeling lamp. The PL1250DRC comes with PL7R High-Gain Reflector and is compatible with the full line of Photogenic flash head accessories. Settings are displayed on an easy-to-read LED screen and are adjusted via convenient push buttons.

The Eclipse 45" White Flat-Panel Umbrella has a removable black cover and an extra white satin panel added during construction to eliminate reflection of the metal spokes of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject. The black cover can be removed to allow you use it in shoot-through mode. The kit is rounded out by a sturdy 8.0' light stand. The included Multi-Clamp allows you to hang the inverter on it.

  • Ion Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System

    The Photogenic Ion Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System allows you to take your studio strobes on the road or off the road without electricity and without noisy generators or bulky old-style inverters. Weighing in at only 3.5 lb including its battery, the Ion measures only 7.5 x 4.4 x 3.3" but is able to deliver hundreds or even thousands of full power flashes depending on the flash head in use. For example, Photogenic's 1,000W/s PL1000DR gets 300 full power flashes on a fully charged battery while their AKC160 will get a whopping 2,050 flashes from the same battery. Of course, you can double or triple your capacity by simply purchasing extra batteries which can be charged apart from the inverter. Extra chargers are available to charge more than 1 battery concurrently.

    Convenience features include a USB port to power computers and other electronic devices and an LED "fuel gauge" that allows you to check on remaining power at a glance. The system includes the ION Inverter, battery, charger, light stand clamp and strap.

    Note: flash capacity specs are based on Photogenic flash heads but other brands of flash heads may be used with the inverter. Power input is 100 to 265VAC, 50/60Hz but output is 120V only.

  • PL1250DRC 500W/s PowerLight Monolight (UV)

    The Photogenic 1250DRC 500W/s PowerLight Monolight (UV) offers speed, power and control, a wide choice of accessories and intuitive operation backed by impressive specs at a very reasonable price.

    What good is a light if it keeps you in the dark? The 1250DRC keeps you fully informed of your power levels via its large highly readable digital display. Power settings are adjustable in 1/10 or ½ stop increments across 6 stops. The bright 250W modeling light can be set to Proportional to let you previsualize your final shot when using multiple lights. Other settings include Full On, OFF and manual control of the modeling light output.

    The PL1250DRC recycles to full power in a lightning-fast 1.5 seconds with short flash durations that help you stop every gesture, an attribute which is extremely valuable when working with kinetic subjects like dancers or athletes. The color corrected flash tube prevents blue hues from creeping into the color balance on subjects like a bride in her wedding dress. The tube also insures a flattering skin tone rendition.

    Convenience features include a test button, optical slave and integral handle. The PL1250DRC comes with a 7.5" reflector and is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including grids, snoots, parabolic reflectors, softboxes and umbrellas.

    Auto Dump Function
    When reducing the power output, excess flash power in the capacitors is released before exposure to insure consistent performance
    Fan Cooled
    A low noise, high performance fan keeps the flash head's electronics cool while lengthening the flash tube's and the modeling light's lives

  • EC45BC Eclipse 45" White Flat-Panel Umbrella

    This Photogenic EC45BC Eclipse 45" White Flat-Panel Umbrella with its removable black cover has an extra white satin panel added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.
    This size is perfect for portraits of 1 or 2 people, and small product set ups.
    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.

    Softens and broadens the light output of any strobe or lower wattage constant light.
    Removable black cover allows the light source to "shoot-through", as a more direct light.

    Note:Ribs are hidden in bounce mode. Removing black cover for shoot-through exposes the ribs.
