About the Flashpoint M1220

The Flashpoint 1220M AC/DC Monolight is the power champion of our M Series family of portable studio monolights. The flash incorporates all the features of a professional 600 WS strobe within a sleek and tough housing. Features like completely continuous variable power settings from 1/32 to full output (5 stops)with self-bleed circuitry, a 250 watt modeling lamp that can be linked to power settings, built in optical slave photocell trigger, replaceable flash tube, visual and switchable audio verification of recycle signals, cooling fan, and sync connections to camera or remote devices.

The advanced design self contained strobe head delivers consistent bursts of light with an efficient guide number of 230 (ISO100/ft) to create studio quality images from still life sets to portraits. The quick recycle gives you the edge on action and the impressive output, a sweet f stop for sharp imaging. Used on location, the 1220M provides multiple lighting for weddings and events without the weight and limits of multiple head pack generator systems. The flash duration assures rich color and full spectrum vibrancy with a full power recycle time at a snappy maximum of 2 seconds on AC. The unit stays stable and cool evenwhen using the bright quartz modeling lamp.

The use of affordable portable, lightweight strobe units adds real image control to your work without the major expense of high energy generator packs. Portraits become masterful. Event coverage a breeze. Product photography is brought to life. Food and beverage pictures become tempting. Buy several of the 1220M's or mix it up with the smaller 620M and 320M's for a powerful lighting system.

The optional lightweight external NiH battery pack frees you from AC wires for total lighting independence for at least 200 full power shots. The 2.6 pound M Series PowerPack keeps you in the action without the restriction of AC wires and extensions, anywhere.
