The M-PACK 1000 HotSync is a Li-Ion battery-powered (built-in, exchangeable) 1000Ws mobile power pack, optimized for flash synchronization up to 1/8000 second. While the HotSync functionality is only available with our PRIOLITE Remote Control HS, the unit can also be used with other flash triggering systems, but only syncs at shutter speeds up to 1/200 second. By using very fast shutter speeds it is now possible to freeze high speed motion even on a bright sunny day. It also means that you can open up a lens to a wide aperture to achieve shallow depth of field.
The battery provides up to 160 flashes at full power (or 320 at 500Ws) 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. The M-PACK 1000 HotSync can be connected to a flash HEAD1000 via a robust connector. The power pack can be mounted either via a clamp on a stand, or can be carried in a bag with a wide shoulder strap. A solid protective cap also allows placement on the ground.
The operation of the M-PACK 1000 HotSync is the same as other Priolite monolights (MBX 500/1000) therefore operating errors can be avoided.
The HotSync feature is currently compatible with most PENTAX, CANON, NIKON, and SONY cameras at any power setting of the strobe and at shutter speeds of up to 1/8000th of a second (1/4000th on Pentax 645Z), without loss of power.
This is a power pack only, but also available as KIT with lamp head and remote HS. Separate lamp heads are available as well.
