The Broncolor Move 1200 L Battery Power Pack with Lithium Battery and Charger continues to raise the bar that Broncolor itself has set so high as an industry leader. The familiar blue handle and modern design are about all that has remained from previous incarnations. Two outlets distribute 1,200Ws of flash power either symmetrically or asymmetrically over 9.0 full stops and is variable in either 1/10 stop or 1 stop increments. It gets it there fast too, in every photographic sense of the word. Recycling time is a super-fast 0.02 to 0.9 sec (min/max) with action-stopping flash durations of 1/1000 / 1/350 sec (t0.5 /t0.1) at full power and as short as 1/20,000 / 1/8500 at minimum power. That means fleeting gestures and water droplets among other subjects frozen in mid air if desired. It’s great for sports and dance in the field as well.
Speaking of the field, the Move is aptly named. At only 13.7 lb it’s lighter than its predecessor and uses an Li-FePo4 Lithium battery that gives you up to 230 full power flashes at full power and up to 50,000 pops at minimum power. You can even run the modeling light on your selected head for up to 2.0 hours thanks to the inclusion of a Continuous Light Adapter. You won’t wear out this battery anytime soon either: it’s rated for 4000 recharge cycles.
The Move 1200L power packs are compatible with Broncolor HS via firmware version 48.07 or later. Broncolor HS, when combined with an optional RFS2.2 transmitter, enables the Move 1200L to sync at shutter speeds up to 1/8000s on Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera systems with a flash head on Channel 1. For existing move 1200L owners, firmware updates are available via an Authorized Broncolor Service Center.
