Courtenay Studio announce the UK launch of the Priolite professional lighting range: Cable free, highly portable, battery powered, super fast flash duration.
Tipton, United Kingdom, Tuesday 19th February 2013, Courtenay Studio today announces the UK launch of the Priolite professional studio lighting range. Priolite is a range of highly portable, battery powered monolights (monoblocs) and power packs designed for the demands of the new generation of photographers.
Priolite have answered every professional photographers dream, by creating a truly portable studio lighting system, which runs without the use of power cables, whilst still offering full studio power for location shoots.
Designed and manufactured in Germany, and available for the first time in the UK under the distribution of Courtenay Studio, the Priolite range is built around their own state-of-the-art monolights and power packs, which feature fully interchangeable, integrated Lithium-ion battery packs. This innovative technology allows the Priolite range to deliver blisteringly quick, ultra-fast flash durations – even when used cable free – giving them a real advantage over other professional lighting systems. Terry Caws, Courtenay Studio Sales & Marketing Manager said “The Priolite lighting range gives the perfect combination of real innovation and performance that professional photographers need. This cutting-edge technology has taken us to the place where all our competitors would like to be”.
The range currently includes 3 monolights, a continuous video light, 2 mobile flash power packs, a bi-directional radio remote control, reflectors, softboxes, umbrellas and a range of complimentary accessories.
The Priolite MBX1000 sits at the top of the monolight range. This compact monolight gives 1000 watt-seconds of flash power. It is cable free and operates independently of mains voltage and because it is powered by a Li-Ion battery, it’s high in capacity and light in weight. It gives a fastest flash sequence of 5 flashes per second, and needs less than 2.5 seconds re-cycle to full power. This versatile monolight provides a flexible range per charge; from over 160 flashes at 1000 watt-second and 320 flashes at 500 watt-second, right through to 6000 flashes at 16 watt-second. It also gives a very fast flash duration of 1/4500 sec at full power. Finally, a 100 watt, dimmable halogen modeling light means that the Priolite MBX1000 offers the perfect lighting solution for today’s modern photographer. In contrast the MBX500 features an 80 watt LED modeling light. In addition both the MBX1000 and the MBX500 offer user insertable replacement batteries, to give the photographer total control.
The Priolite range also offers 2 professional battery power packs in the M-PACK 500 and M-PACK 1000 which when connected to the Priolite HEAD1000 makes for a highly portable and lightweight versatile flash system.
The range is further complemented by the M500, a powerful mains powered moonlight and the Priolite LED400, a portable video light system for the location photographer wishing to balance daylight with a similar light source.
The entire range is enhanced by a range of accessories which include the Priolite 2.4Ghz bi-directional remote control, and the whole range features a unique dual bayonet Hensel and S/Type fitting; the first of its kind.
The Priolite range will be demonstrated at the Focus on Imaging Show, 3rd to 6th March 2013, stand E40.
