About the Priolite M500

The Priolite Cologne M500 2-Light Kit is built around the 500W/s M500 AC powered flash head. The kit includes two MB500s, two 7.0" reflectors, two 8.2' heavy-duty light stands and a wheeled Trolley Case. The M500 uses a power supply with PFC (Power Factor Correction) that not only prevents power spikes during recycling but allows the flash head to recycle at 1.0 seconds to full power and fire 6 times per second at minimum power. If you need to stop action the M500 offers very short flash durations of 1/15,000 to 1/4,500 sec.

Triggering options include an optical slave and a built-in radio receiver in each head with a remote range of up to 984'. Separate purchase of the Remote Radio Control is required for use of the receiver. Other conveniences include multi-voltage operation, Bowens S-type mount compatibility and a 5.0 stop power range.

  • Priolite 2 x M500 500W/s Monolight
  • 2 x 7" Reflector
  • 2 x Heavy Duty 8.2' Light Stand
  • Wheeled Trolley Case
  • Priolite Warranty

Priolite M500 Features

  • Extremely Fast Recycling Time: The M500 provides an extremely short recycling time of 1 second to full power and can provide up to six flashes per second at minimum power. A powerful temperature control fan prevents overheating of the modeling lamp, flash tube and electronics
  • Ready Light: When the M500 is fully recycled, not only does the test button light but a small dome on the top of the housing glows as well, making it easy to monitor it at a distance
  • PFC - Sophisticated High Performance Power Supply: The Power Factor Correction (PFC) module allows the integrated high-performance power supply to provide constant current while the capacitors fill, avoiding spiking that could trip the mains supply breaker
  • Bi-directional Radio Control: The built-in Bi-directional Radio Control Module operates in conjunction with the optional Priolite Radio Transmitter which mounts on your camera's hot shoe. Nearly all functions of the flash can be displayed and controlled
  • Rugged Housing: The extruded aluminum alloy construction of the M500 functions like a protective shell that houses components safely. An elongated sleeve grasps umbrellas up to 10mm in diameter along the full length of the flash head for extra stability
  • Constant Light Distribution: The M500 employs a user-replaceable, omega-shaped flash tube that delivers better light distribution than U-shaped tubes
  • Glass Dome: Standard equipment includes a glass UV coated dome which provides protection and ideal color temperature
  • Easy to Read Large Display: The M500 features a highly visible, easily adjusted, multi-line LCD panel that displays the head's functions and settings
  • Compatible Accessories: The Priolite system is compatible with Bowens S-type bayonet accessories as well as many of Hensel's reflectors
