The M-PACK 1000 is a battery-powered (built-in, exchangeable) 1000Ws mobile powerpack, optimized for short flash duration, and ideal for leaf shutter lens applications. The unit is triggered and controlled with the Priolite Remote Control HS, but can also be used with other flash triggering systems.
The battery provides up to 160 flashes at full power and can be changed by the user. The battery has a charge indicator, and can be charged inside or outside the flash unit. The power switch is protected against accidental switching by a spring-loaded flap, so the unit can be transported easily without being accidentally turned on. The flash power is adjustable in 1/10 f-stop increments, using a turning knob, or from up to 1000ft away via the Priolite Remote Control. Except for the handle and protective cap, all parts of the unit are constructed of solid metal. The M-PACK 1000 can be connected to a flash HEAD1000 via a robust connector. The reflector mount accepts not only Priolite reflectors, but also Bowens S-line, and many Hensel accessories. The support rail profile is made of aluminum casting, allowing the power pack to be mounted either via a clamp on a stand, or to be carried in a bag with a wide shoulder strap.
The omega-shaped flash tube has a long life span and can be replaced by the user. A quiet fan protects the strobe from overheating. The operation of the M-PACK 1000 HotSync is the same as other Priolite monolights (MBX 500/1000), and therefore operating errors can be avoided.
Please keep on mind that this unit does not support HotSync functionality and will be limited to flash sync speeds at up to x-sync. This particular series has been developed with a short flash duration in mind, which makes it an ideal companion for leaf shutter cameras, offering shutter speeds at up to 1/1600th of a second with full flash synchronization.
This is a power pack only, but also available as KIT with lamp head or separate lamp heads.
