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.

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: proportional, 100%, 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, 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).
