Item description

Fulfils highest demands
The VC Excellence studio flash series from Walimex pro is ideally suited for professional users with high demands to their studio equipment. We offer the VC Excellence studio flashes with a flash output of 300 Ws, 400 Ws, 500 Ws, 600 Ws and 1000 Ws.


Integrated receiver with 16 channels
One of the highlights of the series is the built-in 2.4 GHZ radio receiver with 16 channels and 4 groups. When used with several flashes, each flash can thus be controlled individually - for maximum flexibility. All settings such as flash output or modelling light can be conveniently adjusted at the click of a button via the separately available radio trigger or by using the clear and user-friendly control panel on the flash itself. The output can be adjusted from 1/1 to 1/32 and, just like the 250 W modelling light, is infinitely variable, allowing the light output to be precisely matched to the prevailing lighting conditions. The flash can be triggered via a sync cable, the built-in phototube, the test button or the additionally available radio trigger (article No. 19899). A very quiet fan cooling protects against failure due to overheating.


Extremely short recharging times
The VC Excellence series impresses with very high guide numbers and short recharging times, which means that flashes can also be fired in quick succession at any time without any problems. The studio flash is equipped with a practical Aurora/Bowens-compatible bayonet connection and an integrated umbrella holder.
