X5 // 500 Ws Studio Light

We proudly introduce an entirely new kind of premium studio lights – the Multiblitz X System. Its features are perfectly suited to fulfill the high standards of commercial and advertisement photography.

The new „speedmode“ enables simultaneous charging and firing of the units. Up to 20 flashes per second make the X System especially valuable for freeze-photography. The new X System comes in three different versions: The X5 (160-265V, 500Ws), the X10 AC/DC (80-265V, 1000Ws), and the X15 (160-265V, 1500Ws). In developing the X System, we strictly followed the high technical standards of professional digital cameras and created a compact studio flash that operates extremely fast, with high precision, and highly efficient. The X System features a vast control range of 10 f-stops, which allows a controlled output as low as 1 Ws. The flash output can be adjusted in 1/10 increments and the „fast-Dial“ function allows quick adjustments between low and high output.

The X5 and X15 studio lights are particularly desigend for mains operation in the 220-240V range to achieve incredibly short recycle times as low as 0.05 sec, and lightning fast flash durations down to 1/4500 sec (t 0.5). Multiblitz’s built-in “voltage tolerance technology” ensures a safe operating voltage range of 160-265V, guarantees a consistent flash stability, and protects the X System from power grid voltage fluctuations.

The X System can take on any floor pack in its class. It offers exceptional performance. Powerful, versatile, and fast - without the extra handling of lamp heads.
