Multiblitz has changed the name of its Profilux compact flash series to Profilite and introduced a new LED photo/video lamp called the V6.
The Multiblitz V6, controlled from an external power pack, is a monobloc-style LED that accepts normal Multiblitz P-type accessories. The company claims an output of 6000 lumens, making it equivalent to a 650W halogen lamp while consuming a fraction of the power. The colour balance is 4000K â€” slightly warm â€” which Multiblitz reckons is “especially tailored to skin tones and natural daylight”. Universal voltage (90â€“260V) and support for the Multiblitz Propac battery pack (150 minutes at full power) make the V6 reasonably portable for location photographers and videographers.
The Profilite (250/500J) replace the Profilux Eco. The newer flash has a wider power control range: now six stops. Profilite Plus is a line containing three models â€” the Profilux Plus 2, 4 and 8. They have eight, eight and nine-stop power ranges, respectively, offer universal voltage support (90â€“260V) and can be powered from Multiblitz’s Propac battery packs.
Profilites start at â‚¬543, the Profilite Pluses begin at â‚¬617 and the V6 will sell for â‚¬560. Find Multiblitz on stand B043, Hall 4.1 at Photokina this week where they will be exhibiting the new V6 lamp. For more technical information, visit the manufacturer’s web site.
