Beauty Dish Reflector & 1 Monolight – Making of the Chainsaw Bride by Firat Bagdu

The Shot

Who Did It?

Wedding photographer and Multiblitz Pro Firat Bagdu likes to stir up his wedding shoots sometimes. Take a look at his gallery.

How Did He Do It?

This quick and dirty shot themed Chainsaw Bride was done with a simple one light setup combined with ambient light. Firat used a Profilux Plus 800 Ws monolight to overpower the sun on a Propac 1 battery pack as the portable power source. As light shaper he used the Multiblitz 3-in-1 Beauty Dish almost frontal to the model.

Watch the video below!

The Light Shaper

The 17″ 3-in-1 Beauty Dish Reflector can be used with the included soft screen, the center deflector or with the honeycomb grid to give the beauty dish additional versatility. The white reflective surface produces a nice and soft light. Used with the center deflector, it creates a wide and uniform yet dramatic light cone that wraps around your subject with a hazy zone in the center and a nice gradual fall-off. A perfect light shaper for close up beauty, portrait and fashion photography…read more.

The Monolight

The TIPA® Award winning Profilux Plus 800 Ws Monolight produces enough light to overpower the sun.  With 8 f-stops controlled in 1/10 it can be dialed down to 6.2 Ws. With the built-in multi-voltage technology (100-260V) it can be used anywhere you go – worldwide. Battery operated on the Propac 1 power pack it delivers up to 300 full power flashes...read more.

OFF CAMERA FLASH – a new kind of monolight?

What’s it all about?

So you think what’s the buzz about off camera flash? Well, to us it’s just semantics. Off camera means well…something that is not attached to your camera’s hot shoe. So we’re thinking speedlights or monolights positioned on a tripod at some distance from you that are triggered by your camera via sync cord or wireless trigger. Makes sense? To us it does….no matter how you name it, it’s a flash not sitting directly on the hot shoe. Everything else is marketing…

To celebrate this new insight you can get a $100 Off Discount when purchasing a Profilux Plus 200 Ws Battery Powered Monolight at www.multiblitzusa.com by using the following code during checkout:

OFFCAMERA

…and the best thing is: Profilux Plus monolights can be used on Propac battery packs!

A Class of its Own – Purely Professional

The Multiblitz X10 AC/DC is designed to fulfill the high demands of commercial, fashion, and advertisement photographers.

Staggeringly short flash durations second to none make the X10 AC/DC the perfect tool  for freeze-photography. The X10 AC/DC strobe light is battery operable, guaranteeing up to 310 (650) flashes at full power with the Multiblitz PROPAC 1 (PROPAC 2) battery pack.

Hans-Gerd Wulms, 1935 – 2013

Gerd Wulms, 1935-2013

We are saddened to announce that our father, friend and boss Gerd Wulms passed in the early morning hours of December 5, 2013

Since 1973, Gerd Wulms led Multiblitz with ingenuity, creativity and innovation to become the leading manufacturer of studio flash systems worldwide. In 1976, he forever changed the photography world when he invented the MINISTUDIO, the world’s first portable lighting kit in a suitcase. Many more innovations followed.

With Gerd Wulms, the photo industry loses a hard-working pioneer and passionate entrepreneur. We will miss him dearly and will do everything to carry on Multiblitz in his spirit.

Falk & Veit Wulms and everyone at Multiblitz

Multiblitz P-Type or V-Type?

Why there are different type of mounts?

Well, it’s all history: Multiblitz is the forerunner in the industry when it comes to developing light-weight, compact, and small studio lights. The original Multiblitz mount is the larger V-Type mount. When Multiblitz introduced the world’s most compact studio flash: the Profilite, the smaller and compact housing of the studio light required a smaller mount: The P-Type mount (Get it? Profilite – P-Type…we know, incredible German creativity). And while we were at it, we called the larger mount V-Type after the – you guessed it – Variolite studio flash. Today, both mounts coexist. Compact units with small housings and the P-Type bayonet mount, and larger, more powerful units, with the larger V-Type bayonet mount.

So what’s the difference?

As you can see in the image above, the P-Type speedring has a smaller inner diameter of approx. 3 3/4″ (9.5 cm), has 4 narrow prongs and is very compact. The V-Type mount has a diameter of about 5″ (12.5 cm), has 4 wide prongs and is more robust. Currently, Pro X tungsten lights, Compact Plus, Profilux (Eco) and Profilux Plus studio lights feature the P-Type mount. X-System studio strobes are the only studio lights in the current Multiblitz portfolio that feature the V-Type mount.

Does it make sense?

Well, while it might be confusing, it actually makes sense. Smaller housing = smaller mount. Larger housing = larger mount. We are working on providing every Multiblitz light modifier for both bayonet mounts, at least softbox and octabox modifiers.  It is another story with hard metal reflectors, but we offer a 27″ Beauty Dish XL with interchangeable speedring. There are some limitations though: Due to the torque that is acting on the units, not all large modifiers will be available for the smaller P-Type mount. Below is a list of the different P-Type and V-Type Multiblitz studio lights.

2400 Ws To Play With: The New Multiblitz XPAC 24AS Studio Generator

XPAC 24 AS Floor Pack

The NEW Multiblitz XPAC 24AS Studio Generator

We are happy to get back into the studio generator business and this, with all due respect, with a bang! The new Multiblitz XPAC 24AS studio generator combines the technology of our flagship X-SYSTEM studio light with more power and versatility. Comparing studio generators comes down to crunching the numbers. How about this:

  • 2400 Ws
  • 0.05 s recycle time
  • 1/6000 s flash duration
  • a mere 7.5 kg | 16.5 lbs
  • 11 | 10 f-stops control range
  • 2 true asymmetric and individually controlled head sockets
  • Stabilized color temperature
  • Remotely controllable
  • MSRP: 3.473,21 € 

With stunning recycle times, short flash duration and light-weighted the XPAC 24AS offers everything a professional photographer looks for in a studio generator. It features four modeling light modes: proportional100%free and maximal proportional. The built-in wireless sync module allows control of all settings via the Multiblitz TRIGGER HAPPY  remote, including the Easy Clip flash delay function. The BL 41 flash head is equipped with the larger mount for V-bayonet light shapers. The XPAC´s Advanced Trigger Technology makes the XPAC 24AS fully compatible with older generation flash heads used with the Magnolux and Magnolite studio generator product lines.

We are pretty sure  you’ll have a hard time finding a studio generator with these specs at that price point.

Last weekend’s shoot with the Washington School of Photography

Attendees getting ready to shoot…

Last weekend, we got together with the Washington School of Photography at the Pinebox Art Center in Baltimore to present the new X10 AC/DC Strobe Light and some new light modifiers. During the two day open shoot, attendees were able to test action shots with lots of motion using the Multiblitz X-System in Speed Mode and play around with different setups and modifiers.

We used the X10 AC/DC strobe light with the  40″ Deep Parabolic Octabox (PROFOC 100P) as the key light. For a 2 light setup we used the battery-powered Profilux Plus 200 Ws studio light as the fill light, switching back and forth between numerous modifiers including the 12″ x 48″ Strip Light (PRORIP 30), the 17″ 3-in-1 Beauty Dish Reflector (PROBEAU SET), and a 7″ Silver Reflector (FILNOS).
