Nashville, Tennessee – America’s favorite flash units are back – brighter and packed with even more features! We’re thrilled to present the powerful, digitally-controlled DigiBees flash units, available in two output models and four bold, matte colors.
The DigiBee is a powerful, digitally-controlled, self-contained photographic flash unit, available in two output models: the DB400 unit (160ws) and the DB800 unit (320ws). Each unit offers consistent output, short flash durations, fast recycle, and true “What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get” modeling lamp accuracy with a new digital interface that adds optional visual and/or audible recycle indication, slave eye on/off settings, and four modeling modes (on full, off, flashpower tracking, and independent adjustment). All adjustments can be made on the unit’s rear digital control panel, featuring a responsive digital display that indicates the flashpower output, modeling lamp output, or parameter status in each of the adjustment categories.
With the inclusion of a bright, high intensity LED modeling lamp, the modeling lamp becomes more than a tool for previewing the light output as the DigiBee can be used for still or motion photography, delivering a bright, clean light source for a wide variety of subjects.
The DigiBee is compatible with our full line of light shaping modifiers and support accessories, including reflectors, softboxes, umbrellas, light stands, and more. The unit arrives with a sync cord for hardwired camera connection and includes a port for our CyberSync transceiver, allowing the unit to be triggered and/or controlled wirelessly by our CyberSync wireless system.
As the DigiBee has 120 VAC (50-60 Hz) power requirements, it arrives with our 15-foot power cord to connect to a standard, grounded outlet for power. For location work, the unit is designed for use with our Vagabond portable battery power systems.
With rugged, compact design, high-impact polycarbonate housing, and internal fan cooling, the DigiBee is designed for heavy duty use, but boasts an unbelievably tiny size and lightweight frame making it ready for travel.
