Paul C. Buff White Lightning X1600 Flash Strobe - $250 (East Lansing)

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Paul C. Buff
model name / number: White Lightning X1600
The White Lightning X1600 is a powerful, self-contained studio flash unit with dual power modes offering a total power variability range of 8 f-stops. The flash power is independently adjustable from full power (660 Ws) down to 1/32nd of the total power (10 Ws) in Full Power Mode, and adjustable from 1/4 power (165 Ws) down to 1/128th of the total power (5 Ws) in Low Power Mode.

This flash power is adjusted on the back control panel with a slide fader, capable of adjusting in whole f-stop increments and everywhere in between. When adjusted from a higher to a lower setting, the unit will automatically dump the excess power for accurate output. A Power Range button allows switching between the modes for higher power vs. lower power and faster flash duration.

The X1600 contains a thermostatically controlled internal cooling fan, which automatically kicks in when the temperatures rise from extended use. This allows the unit to be used under heavy all-day shooting conditions. It also has a fast recycle and fast flash duration.

With precision voltage regulated circuits supplying consistent output, the X1600 offers "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" modeling lamp accuracy. The modeling lamp can be set to full brightness, turned completely off, or independently adjusted over the same range as the flashpower to track the power changes, with its own rear panel slide fader. The 250 watt modeling lamp may be used as a recycle indicator, dimming as the unit recycles, and coming back on to let you know when the unit is fully recycled.

The X1600 comes with a sync cord allowing you to connect your camera to the unit to trigger the flash. The unit additionally has a built-in slave tripper to allow wireless firing. The unit has standard 120 VAC (50-60 Hz) power requirements and arrives with our 15-foot power cord to connect to a standard, grounded outlet for power. For additional ease of operation, the X1600 has audible warning alarms for misfire and overheat, should the unit reach higher temperatures, or fail to fire (due to a broken flashtube, etc.).

The X1600 is housed in high impact aircraft-grade aluminum, with molded polycarbonate rear bezels, and rounded corners for ease and safety. We have also included an additional modeling lamp and three 7" grids which were purchased separately.
