HC20 Straight 20 Foot Head Cable

The Straight Head Cable HC20 is about 20 feet long and has a male end that plugs towards the Power Pack and a female end that matches with the male plugs on the Flash Heads. Thats about six meters long. This is the longest cable we offer and is a suitable way to extend the Head's built-in cable by an extra twenty feet or to use a twenty foot cable directly to the male plug on the Signature Series Heads.

If you want to make your Flash Head's cable up to twenty feet longer so that you have additional cable hanging around, this is a good solution for you.

The 20 foot cable is great for using a second Head from the same Power Pack becasue it's long enough to keep it out of the field of view and yet produce side or back lighting effects for you.  If you have a long cord and are using it on a single light stand, consider rolling the cable in four or five circles around the light stand so it wraps it's way up, rather than laying on the floor if not extended.  The Velcro cable wrap that is included will also help secure the cable out of the way.

It is true that adding extra cable length will result in slightly less light output.  For example, adding 20 feet of extra cable will result in about 1/4 of an f-stop of light loss.  

These cables are produced here in our USA factory and thoroughly tested.  When the cables are used correctly, you should expect many years of reliable service.  The cable includes a red Velcro cable wrap for securing to the stand during use and rolling up for storage.

The key elements to success are plugging in connections before turning on the products, so that high voltage is not present before it is plugged correctly in.  And second, using the threaded locking collars to gently secure the cables into place.  Many failures happen after the cables are shaken loose during use because they were not locked into place.  It is not needed to make the collars tight, only threaded shut.

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

HSBC
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).

ASC1 Standard Household to PC Sync Cord

ASC1
The ASC1 is the short coiled sync cord that would plug from the round sync jack on many professional cameras to the household sync jack on many Lumedyne Flash Heads. It is about two feet long before stretching the coils out and could reach almost five feet (but might not shrink back all the way if stretched too far).

AFTE 800ws Flashtube for Modeling Flash Heads

AFTE
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.

ACAP Color Caps - Cloth covers in 7 different colors

ACAP
These colorful fabric covers are designed to fit any five to six inch reflectors and use elastic to stay on the front of the reflector.
