Two new studio power packs have been announced by Broncolor, the high-end Swiss lighting manufacturer.

Broncolor Scoro S

Two new studio power packs have been announced by Broncolor, the high-end Swiss lighting manufacturer.

The two models are named Scoro E, dubbed “the smart one” and Scoro S, “the unbeatable”. The latter is faster and has more features.

Broncolor Scoro 3200 S

Both offer independent power adjustment of multiple flash heads, including radio control from over 300m away using the RFS/2 system. Fast flash durations as short as 1/12,000 to 1/14,000 are achieved using “innovative cut-off technology”, while consistent colour is attributed to ECTC, or “Enhanced Colour Temperature Control technology”. Both packs let you specify a flash duration for each light head.

In addition to the statistics listed above, the Scoro S has some extra features which the Scoro E lacks. They are:

  • Interval mode
  • Individual colour correction of lamp heads
  • Speed mode, for faster recycling
  • Memory function
  • Delay mode
  • Alternating mode

The Scoro E has its own advantages though: it’s available in black.
