Inexpensive and Compact Studio Power
The MS300 Monolight from Godox is a 5600K daylight-balanced flash source that offers quality and convenience features at a budget-friendly price point. The head features a 0.1-1.8 second recycling time with flash durations as short as 1/2000 second. Power is variable from 1/32 to full power, adjustable in 50 steps, while the 150W modeling light is adjustable from 5 to 100% to allow you to preview your lighting effects. Settings are accessed via rear panel push buttons and displayed on the easy-to-read LCD screen. Triggering options include sync cord, test button, and slave triggering. The MS300 has a built-in 32-channel radio system, making wireless function control possible with separate purchase of the XT16, X2, X1, or XPro transmitter. The head also has an anti-pre-flash function that makes it easy to work with point-and-shoot and other cameras that employ pre-flash. The MS300's light weight encourages the assembly of a kit with two or more heads without having to lug a heavy case around. The MS300 has a Bowens front accessory mount, allowing it to use Godox modifiers as well as accessories from the many manufacturers that use this system. (Note that the MS300 does not come with a cone reflector.) The head has a tilting stand mount and runs on 100 to 120 VAC mains power.
