I Have three 1250c


Photogenic Powerlight 1250


from KY  -  Pro Photographer

Fired about 20-30 shots (first time out of the box). left the room, strobe still on; heard loud shrill sound, and "pop". Came back to find oil dripping out on carpet and sparks from front.

Great USA-made Product


from Richland, WA  -  Pro Photographer

I have two of these in my studio. I've owned them for over ten years and have never had to even change a bulb yet (knock wood)! They are truly indestructible monolights. If you are looking for a LONG-LASTING, DURABLE, WELL-CONSTRUCTED product then look no further. These lights are easy to use, have all the features a professional needs, and do not break the budget. I use one in a large 36x48 softbox as a key, the other with a 42 inch unmbrella as fill, and some other smaller strobes as effect (hair, backlight etc.). I've been so happy with the Photogenic products. I can't say enough about how great these PL-1250's are!

I have purchased 5 of these.


from Upper Sandusky, OH  -  Professional

I have been using Photogenic Powerlights for 10 years. I actually have 7 total lights, 2 of the 1875s which I take to Weddings. I have never had any problems with any of the lights. They are very reliable. I would recommend them to anyone whether just starting in photography or a seasoned pro.
