Multiblitz Press Release
The new XLITE merges modern technology with the principles of the legendary Mini Studio & Variolite systems. The XLITE is an extreme versatile monolight, developed for the demanding daily workload in a modern photo studio. Like all Multiblitz units, the XLITE features a rugged and robust construction, and guarantees peak precision and powerful output.
Flash output can be controlled over 5 f-stops in 1/10 increments from 30 to 500 Ws, which enables possibilities to follow modern photographic trends such as open aperture photography. In the case you are currently working with an older generation Multiblitz unit like the Mini Studio* or Variolite, you will be able to use all your current light shapers on the V-type bayonet featuring XLITE.
The XLITE is equipped with the larger V-type bayonet, enabling the use of the vast amount of Multiblitz V-type light modifiers for all types of lighting preferences and styles of the photographer.
Our newest studio flash system features a built-in radio receiver and can be triggered with the Multiblitz RS2 radio trigger up to distances of 30 m/100 ft. The featured IR slave cell can be switched off and the halogen modeling tube has a lifetime of 2,000 operating hours.
The XLITE provides a new generation of professional photographers with cutting-edge Multiblitz quality at very reasonable terms, and presents to the „more experienced” portraiture photographers an adequate substitute or a complementary alternative for their Mini-Studio or Variolite units (which are usually fully functional after more than 20 years of usage).
*Does not apply to MINI-STUDIO 202 flashes.
