The Einstein 640W/s Flash is an exceptionally versatile unit with two modes: Constant Color and Action. Constant Color mode maintains a 5600ºK temperture regardless of power or voltage (the included frosted dome lowers the temperature by about 300ºK). This flash is voltage regulated for consistency. Get extreme action-stopping capabilities in Action Mode with a rapid sequence at relatively high power for high speed subjects like water, dancing, sports, and “overpowering” the sun. A large LCD screen makes changing flash settings easy the the spring-loaded claw-style mounting apparatus connects easily to the Paul C. Buff Rotating Speedring, which accepts a variety of rod-based modifiers (not included). At full power the recycling time is a longish 1.7 seconds but at reduced power that decreases to a wicked-fast 1/10th of a second. This flash is ideal for studio shooting and edgier, sporty outdoor shoots.

  • This flash does not include a speedring, however it does include a reflector that accepts standard 7” grids (grids not included). This flash comes with a 1/8-PC sync cable only to fire the lights from your camera. Alternatively, you may rent a Pocket Wizard MC2 for the Einstein along with a regular Pocket Wizard for your camera’s hotshoe to fire the Einstein wirelessly. You may also rent 2 regular Pocket Wizards and connect one to the Einstein with a 1/8-1/8 sync cable. Also note that this flash does not come with a power or battery pack and must be plugged in with AC power to operate. It also does not come with a light stand. To power this flash without AC power, please rent a Vagabond Mini Lithium Portable Battery.
