AFTE 800ws Flashtube for Modeling Flash Heads

AFTE Flashtubes fit all of the existing Lumedyne Flash Heads with or without the modeling light feature. They also fit in the new Extra Small Heads. They can be used at low power as well but should not be used above 800ws per Head as that is the upper rating of this flashtube's performance. The Flashtubes push/pull straight in/out and they will last for tens of thousands of flashes or one face down fall onto a hard surface. Any of the Heads can use this flashtube, however, the modeling lamp itself is separate and this flashtube does not convert a non-modeling Head to have that feature.
Manufacturer: Lumedyne, Inc.

The AFTE is the normal flashtube for any of the Modeling Heads that Lumedyne has ever offered. A modeling light feature is not needed to use this flashtube, but the hole in the base can accommodate the bulb and legs that hold it in the center of the Helix for perfect lighting relevance.

Because this Flashtube fits either style of Head, with or without the Modeling Light, then it is sometimes selected as the “backup tube” so it can fit any Lumedyne Head.

This AFTE Flashtube and the normal Lumedyne reflector have been scientifically proven to provide the most even broadcast of light over about 60 degrees of any combination in the photo industry.  It casts a 60 degree coverage with the reflector normal and 80 degrees back in the wide angle setting.  Because this is a little bit more wide angle than the standard style bulb, the light output rating is about 1/3 less of one f-stop than using the AFSE Standard Tube.

This is an 800ws rated flashtube so when you plug this into your Head, then you can comfortably shoot from 3ws to 800ws.

If you need to flash more than 800ws through one Modeling Head, then you need the 2400ws Quartz Modeling Flashtube AFTQ.

ADC2 Diffusor Cover / UV Filter - Cloudy

This is one of two diffusors that simply snap onto the silver 5" reflectors that we have made for about 45 years. This version is the more cloudy diffusor that will lose almost an f-stop as it considerably softens and diffuses the light going through it. Some UV light is absorbed as well so the light is softer and warmer than when direct from the reflector.

HSBC Extra Small Basic 800ws Head w/ 7' Straight Cord

The Extra Small Basic Heads are the best value of our Flash Head options. They have high quality circuits and the same flashtubes in a smaller molded enclosure so they are also less expensive. They are electronically the same as the larger heads except for the lack of the household sync jack. It is true that the Basic Extra Small Heads are the only ones currently offered without a modeling light which is one of the reasons that it is less expensive than all the rest of the Lumedyne Heads. It also saves money by avoiding duplicating the Power Pack's ready indicator on the Head. This is the best value for a Flash Head that just flashes, and does it well. This Head includes a grid and diffusor set with the reflector and standard non-modeling Flashtube (AFSE).

AMBR Modeling Bulb (Halogen)

This is the normal replacement bulb for the glowing modeling light in the center of the Lumedyne Modeling style Flashtubes. It is about 25 watts bright and does use your battery at a rate of one 200ws flash per 20 seconds of modeling light use. It is user replaceable by simply first removing the flashtube then pulling the burned out bulb straight out. After carefully replacing the AMBR into its legs, the flashtube fits around it and plugs back into place.

001V Refurbished Straight Cord Standard Flash Head

This is a factory refurbished non-modeling Lumedyne Head that has a 800ws AFSE standard flashtube in it. The Head's cable and connector are in good shape. The reflector is in reasonable shape and a diffusor cover is included. This Head has a one year warranty against any electrical or physical failure. However, while the flashtube is tested and working fine, it is not warranted.
