The StudioMax line is a perfect product for the entry level photographer. StudioMax offers a full range of professional photographers accessories, such as barndoors, reflectors, softboxes and snoots. Among the numerous extras included with the PG4001 is a uniquely designed stand adapter made of high impact plastic for strength with light weight. Its ratchet handle employs friction grip at the swivel, not ratchet, and the adapter fits 3/8''-5/8'' stands or 1/4''-3/8'' thread with special stud attachment accompanying each light. This thoroughly unique, professional class adapter has a built-in (not added) umbrella holder which is angled to permit proper alignment of the umbrella with the light regardless of shaft size and also to allow positioning of the umbrella at the right spot for stability and balance on the stand.
Features of the Model PG4001ML monolight include a handsome gray, molded case of high-impact plastic, vented on all four sides for complete, cooling airflow. The vents are baffled to prevent penetration and damage from slender foreign objects and to safeguard the user from high voltage. Dimensions are 8-1/4'' x 4'', weight only 2.5 lbs., the GN is 150 using ASA 100. Generates 150WS, 150 Joules. At full power, the light will recycle in 4-6 seconds.

It has a 40 watt modeling lamp with an on-off switch independent of the power switch which allows viewing at each light independently of others in the set-up. It also eliminates the necessity of turning off any light.
The Remote Control Unit, a small (2-1/2'' x 4''), hand held plastic unit with 20 feet of plug-in phone cable cord.

Very good, compact and lightweight light to hang from the ceiling for a hair light. I even found a small form softbox to use with it.
