Broncolor have today announced the Siros 800 L and 400 L, Lithium Ion powered flash units, expanding the Siros family of flash units to let you more easily take them outside of the studio.

Available in both 400Ws and 800Ws flavours, the Broncolor Siros L features Broncolor’s ECTC technology, to help ensure consistent colour temperature at different power levels as well as consistent flash durations between shots.

The units are also compatible with Broncolor’s bronControl app, available for both iOS and Android, giving you full remote control of multiple units from a smartphone or tablet.

Using the most up-to-date Lithium Ion batteries, the Siros L flash units can achieve 440 flashes at full power, which gets drastically increased as the power is reduced.  The battery pack can be swapped out and recharged in only 75 minutes, and operates over a very wide temperature range from -10° to 60°C (14° to 140°F).

Due to its compact size, battery operation, and wide range of operating temperatures, the Siros L is ideally suited to outdoors use, and with this kind of portable power, turning day into night (or vice versa) becomes a breeze.

The Siros L flash units come with a 25 Watt LED modelling light having a colour temperature of 3000K, matching that of the halogen modelling lamps of the Siros mains powered units and is compatible with the entire Broncolor light shaper range, allowing easy integration into existing Broncolor setups in the studio.

The Broncolor Siros L lights will be shipping from 1st July, 2016, but are currently available for preorder through B&H, priced at $2053.10 and $2347.10 for the 400Ws and 800Ws versions respectively for single light kits.
