Dr. Frankenstein has created a new abomination in the factories of Shenzhen, China. The iQ ring light is a new product from CononMark.
Does CononMark’s new 3G Wireless studio lighting system demonstrate that Chinese manufacturers are finally starting to “show a little respect for their long-term customer”?
Three different studio flash units have been released by Shenzhen-based manufacturer CononMark. The G4.0, GID50 and GE400 monolights add to the “3G Wireless” series of remote-controllable monolights.
Lighting Rumours reviews the CononMark DD400S, a DC-only flash that takes universal batteries. Is it any good? And is it an example other manufacturers should follow?
At the Japan PhotoNext exhibition, CononMark shows off a 12VDC monolight (DD400) and Godox display a pure sine wave inverter power supply (LP-750).
Viewfinder Photography (UK) will be selling the CononMark NID500 remote-controllable, AC/DC IGBT flashgun under the “Strobeam DL5” brand. Also coming: parabolic umbrellas for Elinchrom.
With remote power control, IGBT circuitry and portable power, is the CononMark NID500 the first “Chinese Einstein”?
