Rime Lite’s XB Prime 300W/s Monolight combines very strong specs with wide connectivity and interface options and numerous convenience features which will meet the needs of professionals or any photographer who demands world-class equipment.
The sleek design incorporates a built-in handle to make set up and break-down a breeze as well as a luminescent LCD screen which displays flash and modeling power levels, radio group and ID settings and f/stop, functions and even internal temperature. Power in 1/10 stop increments over an impressive 7.0 full stops is adjusted with intuitive push/dial knobs. The XB Prime's electrolytic aluminum capacitors make super-fast recycling (0.05 - 1.2 sec.) possible. This, combined with its short flash duration (1/2700 sec.), make it ideal for photographing kinetic subjects like actors, dancers or athletes.
If your XB Prime is mounted in a hard to reach place or part of a large set you’ll appreciate the remote control options. An optional Wireless Handheld Controller provides all of the functions available on the back of the head in a wireless handset. The optional ZigBee Wireless System offers 10 channels and 5 lighting zones with remote radio triggering at distances up to 328 feet (99 m). The XB Prime is also compatible with the Rime Lite SWING Wireless System developed for the FAME series heads. With SWING, you can trigger your XB Prime at distances up to 394 feet (120 m).
But your XB Prime flash head doesn't sacrifice accuracy for impressive specs either. The 16,777,216 advanced color space is a perfect match for your digital camera's CCD or CMOS chip, allowing precise reproduction of even the most subtle hues. The special Xenon flash tube adds to the quality of light as does the included frosted dome which is perfect for even light distribution in one of Rime Lite's optional softboxes.
