The Photogenic PowerLight 1250 Monolight, 500ws incorporates advanced electronic components to providing you with tremendous lighting control, repeatability and optional wireless function controls. The PowerLight PL2 is constructed to fulfill the demanding operational need of the professional photographer. The PL1250 incorporates proportional or manual options for the 250-watt quartz modeling lamp.
PowerLight monolights are built to meet the everyday demands of photo professionals. Their job is a lot like yours: to provide exact and repeatable results in demanding lighting situations, day in and day out. The PL1250 has a 6 f-stop flash output range from 16 to 500Ws. The unit delivers repeatable power to the flash tube every flash, for consistent exposures. At full power it has a short 1/1300 sec. flash duration. An easy-to-use slider control allows for stepless adjustments of the flash output. Just like the flash, the bright 250W modeling lamp is also slider controlled to any output level you need—full, proportional, manual or off. The flash tube is user replaceable.
An optional digital PLDD-1 display is available that shows the flash setting. It mounts to the light with an adjustable arm that can be positioned independently of the light. When you purchase a PowerLight, you gain the creative freedom that comes from having dozens of compatible light modifiers to choose from: soft boxes, umbrellas and the entire Quick-Change line, including those legendary Photogenic reflectors. Professionals trust Photogenic PowerLights for rugged build, consistent output, and reliable results.
