StudioMax III Monolights

Product Code: 906852

The AKC160B is an excellent choice for any photographer needing an economical battery-powered monolight that maintains a constant color temperature. It’s easy to use on location or in the studio, and it won’t break your budget.
These lights employ “constant color” technology which prevents the color temperature from visibly shifting, regardless of flash power level. You can be confident that the white balance at 160Ws is the white balance at 5Ws.
The AKC160B gives you the freedom of AC or DC operation. When you have to work off the grid, the AKC160B is powered from the AKB-1 battery pack, sold separately. This ultra-portable three-pound pack provides energy for over 200 full power flashes.
Adjusting the flash power over the 6 f-stop range is a simple matter of twisting a knob. The color-corrected flash tube is user replaceable. The 100-watt modeling lamp can be operated full on or off as needed. If operating off the battery, the modeling circuit is disabled to conserve power.
The AKC160B is compact. It weighs only 2.6 pounds, so it’s great for location work and as an accent or hair light when in the studio. A high-impact ABS housing protects the unit.
There’s a dedicated line of very affordable accessories for the AKC160B. For added flexibility, all Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories will fit these lights, too.
Battery-power freedom and constant color output, all in an economical and compact monolight: that’s the StudioMax AKC160B.
