Union, New Jersey: Rime Lite’s XB Prime studio lighting system has been launched in the USA. Four different models will be available along with all the advanced wireless control accessories offered by the system. Manufactured in South Korea, the XB Prime series offers a whole host of innovative features.
Every high precision function of XB Prime lights may be adjusted wirelessly by the handheld remote or computer software. There is a hotshoe-mounted transmitter for synchronising the flashes with your camera. Both flash and modelling lamp intensity are adjustable over a 7 stop range in 1/10 stop increments. The lights have a Bowens S-type accessory mount. For a list of Rime Lite accessories available in the USA, visit the distributor’s web site.
ACS mode displays the flash intensity as an aperture value, allowing you to match your camera and light settings with no mental arithmetic required.
