Monolights with the battery pack built in are a serious dream of many studio and location photographers. Profoto has been doing it for a little while now, and Adorama is also jumping on board with their latest addition to the Flashpoint series. The company recently announced their RL-600B monolight with an integrated battery and 600 watt seconds of sheer power.
The RL-600B has 22 steps of power from 1/1 full output to 1/128th with a flash duration as fast as 1/15,000 and a recycle speed of as long as 3 seconds. The light uses an LED modelling light–which is also relatively new to the photo world. Even better, the company is claiming 500+ full power flash pops on a single full charge.
Want one? It’ll go for around $600. More photos and specs are after the jump.
