Jinbei unveils affordable flash systems

Australian distributor PROtog has announced a selection of new Jinbei lighting products – two MSN Studio flashes, a Q6 Studio trigger, and an Australian only special for the compact Mars 3 portable battery flash.

The Mars 3 flash head weighs 350G and the power pack is 1300G, but packs punch with 250Ws of power generated from a lithium battery. It can be controlled with Through-the-lens (TTL) metering mode, as well as High-Speed-Sync (HSS) flash mode.

The Australian only SE kit includes the Mars 3, a folding metal camera bracket, a 60cm Octa softbox, barndoors, a grid, and a gel kit.

The extra accessories are worth $120, but are available for an additional $70.

Jinbei designed the Mars 3 for solo shooters, whether that’s wedding and portrait, press, or event photographers.

It will be available from May, at an affordable $699 – with pre-orders for the SE kit available now for $768.

The flash uses the Jinbei TR611C trigger, allowing it to be used in conjunction with a mixture of lighting products such as the HD610, another Mars 3, or Canon 600EX-RT speedlights.

The company points out other brands typically require extra receivers to be attached to speedlights.

MSN Studio Flash
A new range of high performance TTL Studio flashes will be kicked off with the MSN600TTL and the MSN800TTL.

They offer high quality studio results which rival its European competition, Jinbei says, but at an affordable price.

They both have the same functionality as the popular Jinbei HD610 but with mains power.

Features include:
– Less than one second recycle time at full power;
– LED modelling light with proportional light;
– 1/19000s freeze function;
– Group control;
– Colour LED group indicator;
– Optional Bluetooth control.

Both lights arrive in May, with the MSN600TTL at $799 and the MSN800TTL at $899.

They are also available in kits including two flash heads and light stands with carry bags, two 35 reflectors, and two Translucent Umbrellas. The kits cost $1769 and $1869, respectively.

Q6 Studio Trigger
This trigger is designed for either Nikon or Canon. It can control the MSN range of flashes, the HD610, and the Mars 3 with app control available for Android and iOS.

It can support up to six groups of lighting setups, excluding the Canon RT speedlights.

Also available in May for $99.
