Overview

  • The Impact VC-500WL 2-500Ws Monolight with Transmitter Kitis built around 2 enhanced, redesigned VC-500WL flash heads. Each head comes with a reflector, flashtube, 250W modeling lamp, power cable, sync cord and a 8' air-cushioned light stand. The included 16-channel, 4-group radio transmitter triggers the head's built-in receivers from up to 328' away. Two white umbrellas with black backing, a 24 x 36" softbox with silver interior and speedring, and a wheeled case are also included.

    The VC-500WL 500Ws monolights have full to 1/32 power range adjustable over 6 stops in 1/10 stop increments, very fast recycling time (1.5 seconds @ full power) and Proportional, Independent and Off settings for the 250W modeling light. Flash durations as short as 1/1200 sec. freeze action with moving subjects while the VC-500WL's 5,600K color temperature remains constant within +/- 100K regardless of power setting.

    You can freely mix and match your remote flash units with the VC-500WL. The flash's 7 optical slave modes allow it to interface with an on-camera TTL flashes, triggering with up to 5 pre-flashes when needed. The VC-500WL's Time Frame and Block Time functions enlarge the unit's circle of compatibility with the many brands available by effectively adapting for the differences in their pre-flash durations.

    A number of systems are employed to increase the VC-500WL's longevity and ensure safety. The fan-cooled housing with adaptive thermal control protects the flash heads CMOS circuitry and the user-replaceable modeling lamp and flash tube.

     

  • Built-in 2.4 GHz wireless Receiver with 16 channels and 4 distinct groups of flashes
  • The included 16-channel, 4 group radio remote control transmitter gives you wireless control of up to seven lights from distances up to 328'. It allows you to adjust functions like flash power, the modeling lamp, audio beep and slave mode
  • 6-stop stepless power control range from full to 1/32 in 1/10 stop increments
  • Fast recycling time: 0.2 - 1.5 sec
  • A large easily-read LCD display on the rear of the unit gives you a clear indication of chosen settings
  • Pre-flash Detector System to enable use of a wide range of on-camera flashes
  • Multiple Modeling Light Modes: Proportional, Independent, Off
  • The soft-start function of modeling lamp protects the subject's and photographer's eyes, and increases the working life of the lamp
  • Sturdy, functional, and professional aluminum alloy housing
  • Anti-static, tactile rubberized surface treatment provides comfort and utility
  • Two Kinds of Recycling Reminder: Programmable ready beep function and modeling lamp visual indicator. The modeling lamp dims during recycling and comes on again when fully recycled
  • Fan-cooling provides longevity for the head's electronics, flashtube, and modeling lamp
  • Over-Heating Protection: When the flash reaches its maximum operating temperature, it slows recycling time to reduce heat, rather than delay the shoot for a cool-down interval
  • 12.5 Amp fuse shuts the head down if necessary to prevent damage by electrical spikes
  • Low 5 VDC sync voltage protects your camera's electronics
  • Power auto-dump drains excess power from the capacitors when you reduce the output to guaranty accurate exposures
  • Stand bracket with extra umbrella fitting for larger umbrella shafts
  • Shifting pan/tilt support allows you to use large, pro-sized accessories
