New York, NY—Flashpoint’s XPLOR 300 Pro TTL R2 battery-powered moonlight is a portable light for on-the-go photography. The Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro is a compact 300W strobe light with a one-second recycle time. It also boasts a 328-feet R2 signal reception range and the capability to work seamlessly across major camera systems.
“We’re so excited to debut the next generation Flashpoint monolight that is the ultimate combination of power and size for on-the-go photography,” said Solomon Leifer, brand manager, Flashpoint. “The XPLOR 300 allows photographers to capture high-quality images using any camera system; while its easy-to-use modifier mount allows for unlimited lighting creativity.”
Key Features of the Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro
With a lightweight, 3-pound body, the device measures 7.5×3.8×3.4 inches. As a result, it is an option for wedding, event, commercial and environmental portrait photographers. It is also a solution for run-and-gun photojournalists and adventure travelers.
In addition, photographers can sync cameras across any of the major brands (Canon, Sony, Nikon, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Olympic and Pentax) to guarantee consistency across images. This is even true if one photographer is shooting with a Sony while the other shoots with a Canon. The XPLOR 300 automatically senses the camera system and responds accordingly.
Furthermore, A 2600mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to 320 full power flashes. It also recharges in less than 2.5 hours. Users can swap out a new battery on the rear port in seconds to keep shooting without delay.
The XPLOR 300 Pro is also designed with compatibility in mind. Users can attach the Glow S2 Round flash bracket ($25) or the AD-AB adapter ring ($9) to experience the Bowens S-type modifier mount and light-shaping tools from soft boxes to focusing spot lenses.
The unit also offers intense bi-color LED guided modeling (3000K–6000K) for flexibility. Users can combine this with the dimmable bi-color LED modeling lamp to aid previsualization. Its 12W continuous light is also useful when creating short form video. What’s more, the device provides professional balanced color temperature at 5600K to 200K.
Furthermore, the moonlight offers the following additional features: Flashpoint’s R2 2.4GHz radio system; manual flash over 9 stops; TTL/M/Multi flash modes; 32 channels to isolate and protect the signal; high-speed sync up to 1/8,000 second; second-curtain sync; a last shot auto memory function; a quiet fan-cooled mechanism; as well as a large dot matrix LCD display.
Initially available at Adorama, the Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro moonlight retails for $499. It comes with a reflector and cap, flashtube, AD-E2 bracket, a lithium battery charger as well as a cord—all in a carrying case.
