Broncolor Siros 400 L WiFi / RFS2 Monolight (31.710.12)
The Siros L is broncolor’s new battery-powered compact device. The Siros L provides ambitious photographers with the opportunity to enjoy perfect lighting, be this on-the-move, in the studio or outdoors.
Offering up to 440 flashes at full power, colour constancy and very fast flash durations, the Siros L is one of the most powerful compact devices currently available on the market.
- Latest lithium-ion battery technology
- Enormous control range for flash energy – up to 9 f-stops
- Remote control using “bronControl” app or RFS2
- Speed mode for fast flash times
- Additional function for flash sequences
- USB connection for software updates
- Easy-to-use rotary controller and simple operation
For over 50 years broncolor has been synonymous with innovation and an uncompromising commitment to the highest light quality. And again, with the Siros L, there are no trade-offs. It is a real broncolor product.
With the latest lithium-ion technology, a single battery, in spite of its very compact size and low weight, can charge a Siros 400 L up to full power 440 times! Reduce the output, for example by just 2 f-stops, and you can have over 1700 flashes! The results will convince you. The battery can be used over a very wide range of temperatures – from −10° C to +60° C degrees Celsius. This gives you a free range of locations – at the North Pole or in the desert, Siros L is your reliable companion.
When discharged, this high quality battery takes only 70 minutes to fully charge again. In Siros L too, the ECTC technology you know from our high-end Scoro and Move power packs controls the flash curve, enables flash durations from 1/19’000 s (t 0.5). In addition, it guarantees constant colour temperature over the entire control range.
Simple, robust and ergonomic
The proven design of Siros studio units has been optimised for the battery version. The lithium-ion battery can be easily removed and replaced with one hand. It is perfectly integrated into the elegant form of the unit – the latch is slightly raised so that even in the darkest studio you can reliably locate it by touch. Three LEDs reliably indicate the battery’s state of charge.
The stand adapter is designed so that it combines with the generously dimensioned handle to act as a floor stand. The umbrella mounting is located directly beside the stand adapter. This lets you use the entire length of the umbrella shaft for focusing.
Perfect light without restrictions
The control range extends over a full 9 f-stops. At high output it can even “outflash” bright daylight. Low settings enable photography even with wide-open apertures. You can be certain that Siros L will never restrict your choice of aperture – it is every photographer’s ideal companion.
Many broncolor light shapers are parabola-shaped and only guarantee optimum light yield and quality when the light source is as close as possible to the internal focal point of the reflector. Consequently, the Siros L is built with an external flash tube, resulting in perfect light without compromises.
broncolor has the most comprehensive light-shaper accessory system, which the Siros L is completely integrated into it. Two new reflectors have been developed especially for Siros: an umbrella reflector and the L40 reflector, which has a snap-in system for honeycomb grids or barndoors with filter holder.
Operation: as simple as possible for maximum convenience
￼All the basic functions of Siros L can be operated using the free “bronControl” app. As soon as Siros L is logged in to the Wi-Fi network, you can control several devices using a smartphone or tablet with each clearly identified by different-coloured LEDs.
The app controls the functions of up to 6 units with absolute clarity and full individual control. Even without the app, Siros L is still simple and intuitive to operate. With the single rotary controller, the “Twist Function” lets you set the output very quickly over several f-stops or very precisely in 1/10 f-stop steps. By pressing on the same knob you have access to the menu and to all the additional functions. There’s no simpler way.
To control the Siros L with iPhone, iPad or Android devices. App is available on the App Store and Google Play Store.
Innovative Technologies, Made in Switzerland
You can sense the performance and robustness of Siros L from afar. The elegant, black aluminium body of Siros L makes a powerful statement, but its simplicity and ease of use are equally impressive.
Siros L was entirely designed and developed in Switzerland. Production and quality control also remain at the headquarters of Bron Elektronik AG and so guarantee the familiar high quality of every broncolor device.
Innovative technologies from the prize-winning Scoro and Move power packs have been adapted to the Siros L. These include:
Flash duration and light output are the two decisive factors in light control. A microprocessor in Siros L will calculate the shortest flash duration for a given energy setting. That is convenience!
The second generation of our patented ECTC (Enhanced Color Temperature Control) technology, which adapts flash voltage and flash duration to each other, ensures a constant colour temperature over the entire output range. Reliability at the highest level.
Enormous range of settings
With Siros L you have a free choice of 9 f-stops to set the flash output you need, all the way to 2 Joules. Photography with maximum freedom.
In Speed Mode fast charging and short flash times have absolute priority. In this case the calculation of constant colour temperature (ECTC) is suppressed. For quick results.
The latest lithium-ion technology in the batteries enables charging times never achieved before, and supplies energy for over 440 complete charges to full power – and all this from a weight of only 0.6 kg. It makes photography pure pleasure.
