Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online.

Forget about tripping over PC cords. Although this head accepts one, it also has a built-in EL-Skyport Receiver with eight frequency channels that can handle four distinct groups of flashes. The optional transmitter not only allows you to trigger your flash at distances up to 393 ft. but gives you control of power, on/off, modeling light functions and Speed Sync activation. The BRX 500 offers very fast recycling rates of 0.34- 1.45 seconds @ 115V with action-stopping flash durations of 1/1,558 sec. The auto-sensing, multi-voltage BRX 500 recognizes any AC power source from 90-260VAC, allowing you to use it anywhere in the world. The head ships with 115V modeling lamp. Swap it out for use in a nominal 230V environment.
