Photogenic PL1250DRC overview

  • 1Description

The Photogenic ION Inverter with PL1250DRC 500W/s Flash Head Softbox 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 PowerLight monolight with reflector, an 8.0' light stand and a 22 x 22" Softbox.

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 AK22 22 x 22" Softbox features a removable front face and internal baffle and comes with a Photogenic speed ring and a carrying case. It accepts optional fabric grids. 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.

    Six Stop Power Range
    Power settings Power levels are displayed in easy-to-read LED digits allowing settings from 16W/s to 500W/s in 1/10 or 1/2 stop increments
    Fast Recycling
    The PL1250DRC recycles to full power in only 1.5 seconds to catch even the most fleeting gesturers
    Modeling Light

    Low Trigger Voltage
    Digital cameras can be used with Photogenic PowerLights without fear of damage to the camera's electronics
    Built-In Slave

    User Replaceable Flashtube
    No tools are required to replace this "plug & play" flashtube
    Ready Indication
    Dims the modeling light while charging the capacitors. When the capacitors are at 100%, the modeling lamp re-lights
    Color Corrected Flash Tube
    The color corrected flash tube filters out blue hues that result from UV emission for a cleaner look with flattering flesh tones.
    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
    Safety Features
    The PL1250DRC incorporates surge protection to handle power spikes and internal thermal protection which monitors heat generated during intense use
    System Compatibility
    The PL1250DRC is compatible with all Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories

  • 22" Square Softbox with Mount Ring (Silver Interior)

    The 22" Square Softbox with Back Plate and Mounting Ring for Photogenic Flash Heads provides soft, yet intense light for your subjects. The interior is silver for a little extra snap to the light. The spring tension rods fit easily into the softbox and into the included Photogenic speed ring. The front panel is touch-fastener fitted, allowing you to place the panel at the edge or 1.5" into the box for improved light direction.

  • Talon TALS8 Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Stand (8')

    The Photogenic Talon TALS8 Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Stand is a combination of design quality and practicality, achieving superior stability and longer service life even under constant, rigorous use.

    This is an air-cushioned aluminum stand that rises to a maximum height of 8'. Air cushioning gently lowers the light, preventing damage to both the fixture and fingers when section locks have not been properly tightened.

    Optional casters are available for added convenience.
    Folds down to a size that is easy to pack into a location case.
