Kickstarter Alert: PRIOLITE ULTRA, 1/8000th Flash Sync Compact Li-Ion Monolight

field Jul 26, 2016

Priolite Ultra takes creative freedom a step beyond other monolights by allowing photographers to shoot at any shutter speed (up to 1/8000s) at any power output, all in the smallest all-metal construction monolight on the market. In order to freeze motion or balance ambient light in more moderately lit environments, photographers need to be able to drop the power of the strobe much more than just the two stops that most monolights allow for such high speed sync. With Priolite Ultra’s HotSync technology photographers can create the best possible exposure timing at any shutter speed, and most importantly, at any power setting (from 9Ws all the way up to 1000Ws)!
Priolite is a very affordable strobe option that does not compromise on quality or functionality. With compatibility for many major camera brands and a universal modifier mount, the Priolite Ultra can step right into any lighting kit. Some other features of the Priolite Ultra include:

  • 1/8000 high speed flash synch at any power level (from 9Ws up to 1000Ws)
  • Built-in 2.4 GHz wireless receiver compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax cameras (trigger and adjust up to 36 lights at the push of a button)
  • Universal modifier mount takes Priolite, Hensel, and Bowens-s mount without, and Elinchrom or Profoto with an adapter
  • Fine output control with 1/10th stop intervals
  • Recycling time of 2.5 sec at full power
  • LED modeling light (equivalent to 80 W halogen)
  • At only 8 inches in length and 5.6 inches wide, the lightweight Priolite Ultra is the extremely portability and ideal for travel
  • 220 full-power flashes per charge, and over 6000 at the lowest power setting
  • 5,500 Kelvin color temperature
  • Metal frame, metal hardware, metal mount, Li-Ion powered

Headquartered in Germany, Priolite has been engineering and manufacturing its photography lights since 2009. With the Priolite Ultra, the company is offering the Kickstarter community the first opportunity to jump on this next generation monolight.
