Calumet has launched two new portable flash systems at highly competitive prices.
The Genesis GF200 with its 360 degree illumination and 200Ws power output will retail at just £285.00 and its larger sibling, the GF400, with similar illumination but with 400Ws power output, will cost £385.00.
Both units are capable of wireless-remote manual power control when used with the company’s Genesis 433MHZ 16-Channel Wireless Trigger kit.
Said Sian Hamer, Calumet’s marketing executive: "We think these new products, which form part of our ever-expanding Calumet Genesis range, will prove very popular with our customers. Both provide excellent manual control of flash settings but without sacrificing compactness or ease of use. What also makes these flash systems exciting is the wide range of light control accessories available -including the 16-channel wireless trigger kit, an umbrella reflector, beauty dish w/grid and snoot.
Each unit boasts a large LCD display; simplified controls; a separate On/Off button; rotating head with vertical adjustments up to 90 degrees; MF-Assist Beam for low-light or low contrast conditions; audio-ready function and built-in overheating protection circuitry. Built-in PC sync and 3.5mm sockets also provide flexible triggering options."
She added: "The GF200 and GF400 are designed to be used with the PowerPort Duo 1000 - a rechargeable, interchangeable battery pack with a price tag of just £127.00. This pack can provide up to 900 full power flashes with the GF 200 and 450 flashes for the GF 400 in a single charge. It is also compatible with a wide range of popular speedlights including Canon, Nikon, Sony and Metz alternatives. All Genesis light modifier accessories are compatible with the Quantum Qflash TRIO and 5dR flash units."
The new Calumet flash systems and all associated lighting control accessories are available through all Calumet sales channels: stores, call centre and web. For more information, take a look at the Calumet website
