Photogenic Professional Lighting Launches New Lighting Kits Designed to Meet the Needs of Today’s Photographer

Bartlett, Ill. (July 19, 2011) — Photogenic Professional Lighting, a leading manufacturer of photographic lighting equipment and accessories, announces a full line of new lighting kits designed to meet all the shooting needs of today’s photographer. These latest kits were also designed with the goal of simplifying choices for both dealers and consumers. The kits will be available this month and reinvent the company’s previous offerings.

“The popularity of DSLRs has brought lighting accessories back to the forefront again and there is an emerging market for a new generation of photographers which is creating a big opportunity for camera dealers,” says Bob Higgins, sales and marketing manager of Promark International, manufacturer of Photogenic products. “These new kits will give them an incredible line up from a product and an inventory standpoint.”

The Photogenic kits include the Solair™, PowerLight®, and StudioMax® III series. Each kit is strategically designed to meet current photographer’s lighting needs in any specific shooting situation whether it’s indoors or out. There are a number of travel kits which are ideal for the photographer on the go. Each kit also offers a Photogenic soft box which is becoming widely used by more photographers today.

“Two of the major additions to our new kit offerings are the inclusion of our softboxes and our famously popular Eclipse umbrellas in each multi-light kit providing a significant value to the end user. As a powerful lighting modifier, a soft box allows large amounts of light to be cast but with very few resulting shadows. More photographers are utilizing the soft box as an alternative to diffuse lighting in specific lighting situations and these latest kits allow for the perfect blend of both,” said Higgins.

Solair™ Kits

There are six kits in the Solair™ series. Solair™ monolights employ “constant color” technology that prevents the flash color temperature from visibly shifting no matter what power setting is used. “These units are controlled for constant Kelvin color temperatures within 14° per stop over an amazing 8 f-stop range of power settings. There’s no warm cast at lower power levels. That’s very important when utilizing a multi-light setup,” said Higgins.

The Solair™ Kits include:
