MagneFlash Splash Portable Flash System Prototype

Magneflash by Louden Photographic has developed a new Splash portable flash system. Currently still in development we had a look at the prototype versions of the products at Focus on Imaging 2011.

The system comprises of a completely new Splash Flash Head, shown below, with built in rechargeable battery, and rear output controls. The new portable flash heads are expected to retail at £350 when released. The product is due to be available in Q3 2011.

Main features of the Splash flash head system:
  • Fast recycle times
  • High power
  • More Light - using "zero light-loss cables"
  • Keypad built into flash head (on cableless model)
  • Outdoor use - low heat means the flash can be used outdoors
  • Full power flash durations as short as 1/4000th of a second (t=0.5)
  • Automatic high speed flash synchronization
  • Bright 500 Lumen daylight balanced solid state lighting

There are two Splash Generator models, the Splash I and Splash II - each have their own power output controls and are powered by plug in rechargeable Power Tiles, shown below. Each Generator will fit either one or two Splash Flash heads. Multiple Power Tiles can be plugged in, with each additional power tile providing quicker recycle time, and more full power charges before recharging is needed.

The Splash I and II use multiple high voltage converters within the Power Tiles, shown below, that combine to provide fast recycle times with very low power loss. The Splash II can fit two additional Booster Tiles, allowing the use of four Power Tiles in total.

The cabled versions of the Splash flash head use 4 metre light weight cables as standard, and gives the option of doubling the cable length to 8 metres without the loss of light.

I also thought that this was interesting (very very interesting, to be honest), but it's marked as 'Splash TM' and I can find no trace of the TM being registered. While that doesn't detract from the product......... maybe the IPO's site is defective.
