The AKC320B is an excellent choice for any photographer needing an economical battery-powered monolight that maintains a constant color temperature. It’s easy to use on location or in the studio, and it won’t break your budget. These lights employ constant color technology which prevents the color temperature from visibly shifting, regardless of flash power level. You can be confident that the white balance at 320Ws is the white balance at 10Ws. The AKC320B gives you the freedom of AC or DC operation. When you have to work off the grid, the AKC320B is powered from the AKB-1 battery pack, sold separately. This ultra-portable three-pound pack provides energy for over 150 full power flashes.
Adjusting the flash power over the 6 f-stop range is a simple matter of twisting a knob. The color-corrected flash tube is user replaceable. The 100-watt modeling lamp can be operated full on or off as needed. If operating off the battery, the modeling circuit is disabled to conserve power. The AKC320B is compact. It weighs only 3 pounds, so it’s great for location work and as an accent or hair light when in the studio. A high-impact ABS housing protects the unit. There’s a dedicated line of very affordable accessories for the AKC320B. For added flexibility, all Photogenic® Quick-Change™ light shaping accessories will fit these lights, too. Battery-power freedom and constant color output in an economical and compact monolight: that’s the StudioMax AKC320B.
StudioMax III accepts all the Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories. These accessory options include barndoors, grids, snoots, scrims, diffusers, soft boxes and umbrellas. These lights are easy to carry for location work. Battery -powered StudioMax III model "B" units are the answer for photographers on-the-go and eliminate the need for extension cords. This unit can be powered by Photogenic's AKB-1 battery (sold separately) or by select models from other manufacturers.
A fully charged battery pack will usually provide 150 flashes for the AKC320B, at full power. When the lights are DC powered, the modeling circuit is disabled conserving all your battery energy for flash. These versatile "B" models also operate on standard 110 volt power.
