Multiblitz®, the German manufacturer with the longest tradition in developing studio lighting for professional photographers around the world, brings German-engineered state-of-the-art lighting equipment to the US.
Named after Harold G. Edgerton’s famous multi-flash exposures in 1949, Multiblitz pioneered the development of the first electronic flash unit in continental Europe in the late 1940s. At Photokina 1976, Multiblitz forever changed the photography world, by introducing the industry’s first compact monolight, the Ministudio 202. It was the first compact studio flash that could be easily stored in a case, including tripods and umbrellas – the first studio lighting kit was born. Since then, Multiblitz was accountable for many innovative products that were well ahead of their time, culminating in the TIPA Award winning flash system Profilux Plus in 2010.
The Multiblitz Profilux monolights are designed for the ambitious amateur/emerging professional. Available in 250 & 500 Ws versions, both models feature 5 f-stops – adjustable in 1/10th increments. The battery operable Profilux Plus monolight targets the professional photographer with more energy output and shorter flash durations. It is available in 200, 400, and 800 Ws versions with 7 and 8 f-stops respectively (800 Ws model), also adjustable in 1/10th increments. The multi-voltage Profilux Plus units can be powered with Multiblitz Propac battery packs, delivering up to 3200 on-location flashes at maximum output. All flash units are fan-cooled, automatically dissipate flash energy, and covered under a 3-year manufacturer warranty.
Multiblitz manufactures at the company’s headquarters in Cologne, Germany. Here, a 55,000 sq ft facility houses the entire production cycle. From conceiving an idea, designing and engineering the product, to finally manufacturing studio lighting equipment. With over 60 years of experience in developing premium studio lighting, Multiblitz is the most experienced manufacturer for photographic lighting equipment.
“Our products are an alternative to over-priced brands or cheap imports from Asia.” said Veit Wulms, president of Multiblitz USA. “We give amateurs and professionals the opportunity to experience German-made, premium quality studio lighting at a reasonable price. Here in America, Multiblitz products are sold directly at our online store. With this strategy we can guarantee competitive prices and excellent customer service.”
Starting in August 2012, Demo Events will familiarize photographers with Multiblitz equipment. Photographers will have the chance to get hands-on experience with Multiblitz studio lighting equipment in a real-life situation.
