Fitted with the standard reflector (not included) it produces a guide number of 220 (equivalent to f/22 @ 10’ at 100 ISO) which is ideal for portrait, glamour, fashion, event and many types of Edit Product photography.
Because of its high power, this flash head is especially suitable for group photography, commercial photography and for when specialist light shaping tools such as spotlights and honeycomb grids are used.
But good studio lights produce far more than just power. The power needs to be capable of fine control, and the flash head needs to accept a wide range of light shaping tools and modifiers, as well as to produce clean, consistent light quality at all power settings.
Another, very important factor is flash duration, because fast flash duration not only freezes movement but also produces very consistent colour temperature. The flash duration of the ElitePro 600 is a very impressive 1/1000th second (t-05), far faster than many similar Edit Product on the market!
The flash tube is extremely unlikely to fail, but it's good to know that all Lencarta flashtubes are available at very reasonable prices and are user changeable.
