The Photogenic PowerLight 1250 Monolight, 500ws incorporates advanced electronic components to providing you with tremendous lighting control, repeatability and optional wireless function controls. The PowerLight PL2 is constructed to fulfill the demanding operational need of the professional photographer. The PL1250 incorporates proportional or manual options for the 250-watt quartz modeling lamp.

PowerLight monolights are built to meet the everyday demands of photo professionals. Their job is a lot like yours: to provide exact and repeatable results in demanding lighting situations, day in and day out. The PL1250 has a 6 f-stop flash output range from 16 to 500Ws. The unit delivers repeatable power to the flash tube every flash, for consistent exposures. At full power it has a short 1/1300 sec. flash duration. An easy-to-use slider control allows for stepless adjustments of the flash output. Just like the flash, the bright 250W modeling lamp is also slider controlled to any output level you need—full, proportional, manual or off. The flash tube is user replaceable.

An optional digital PLDD-1 display is available that shows the flash setting. It mounts to the light with an adjustable arm that can be positioned independently of the light. When you purchase a PowerLight, you gain the creative freedom that comes from having dozens of compatible light modifiers to choose from: soft boxes, umbrellas and the entire Quick-Change line, including those legendary Photogenic reflectors. Professionals trust Photogenic PowerLights for rugged build, consistent output, and reliable results.

  • Six Stop Power Range: Power settings are steplessly adjustable across 6 stops via a simple slider control.
  • Fast Recycling: The PL1250DR recycles to full power in only 1.5 seconds to catch even the most fleeting gestures
  • Modeling Light: The PL1250's bright 250W quartz modeling lamp is independently adjustable from full to 1/32 power. Settings include Proportional, to previsualize lighting effects, Manual adjustment or Full On or Off
  • Low Trigger Voltage: Digital cameras can be used with Photogenic PowerLights without fear of damage to the camera's electronics
  • Built-In Slave: This version of the PL1250 has a built-in, highly sensitive, switchable optical slave for synchronization with other flashes
  • User Replaceable Flashtube: No tools are required to replace this "plug & play" flashtube
  • Ready Indication: A ready light and audible alert let you know when the capacitors are at 100% charge
  • Auto Dump Function: When reducing the power output, excess flash power in the capacitors is released before exposure to ensure consistent performance
  • Fan Cooled: A low noise, high performance fan keeps the flash head's electronics cool while lengthening the flash tube and modeling light lives
  • Safety Features: The PL1250 incorporates surge protection to handle power spikes and internal thermal protection which monitors heat generated during intense use
  • System Compatibility: The PL1250 is compatible with all Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories
