Priolite Introduces Ultra, The Smallest Metal Body High Speed Sync Strobe
If you’re serious about photography than you know how important the right light can be. Thing is, most solutions out there are overly complex, way too bulky or small and lack power. That’s why we developed the PRIOLITE ULTRA.
Los Angeles, USA, July 4,2016 PRIOLITE is proud to announce PRIOLITE ULTRA, the world’s smallest Li-Ion battery powered, metal body, metal hardware, and metal mount monolight for high speed flash photography. The new PRIOLITE MBX500HS ULTRA enables Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and SONY users to synchronize their cameras with the help of the Priolite HotSync System at up to 1/8000th of a second1, but in a package much smaller than previously possible. Utilizing the entire range of possible shutter speeds with the Priolite HotSync System allows photographers to shoot with wide-open apertures in sunlit environments, freezing motion of fast moving subjects, and enables them to create images difficult or impossible to capture before. Unlike other solutions, PRIOLITE HotSync requires no user input and works over the entire power range of the strobe.
“In 2012, PRIOLITE introduced high-powered strobe photography at shutter speeds of up to 1/8000th of a second, combined with the ability to operate any of the PRIOLITE HotSync strobes at any power setting and without the need for an outlet. Being able to shrink the technology and reduce pricing, while retaining durability and our famous built-quality truly represents a quantum leap forward for all photographers out there,” says Joachim Renschke, the CEO and founder of Priolite GmbH, Germany. PRIOLITE ULTRA features a built-in 2.4GHz wireless control system, with support for 4 groups and 9 different ID’s each, 1/10th of a stop power adjustments, and control of modeling lights. Photographers now no longer have to rely on generators while on location, searching for outlets, or running wires when setting up their lights. Thanks to the miniscule size of PRIOLITE ULTRA, bringing powerful monolights to any location is no longer an issue.
“Priolite offers the only solution for High Speed Flash photography with up to 1000Ws per light, and is the only professional lighting manufacturer with HotSync support for Pentax medium format cameras and DSLR’s from Sony, Canon, Nikon, and Pentax, but when I first saw PRIOLITE ULTRA, I was very impressed. The ridiculously small size enables me to take multiple lights, even if I have to hike, drive, or fly. What’s even more impressive is how PRIOLITE was able to retain the metal body, metal hardware, and metal mount, thus not compromising on durability and quality,” says Alex Munoz, commercial still and motion photographer from Los Angeles, California.
