The Interfit S1a is an affordable 500Ws, AC powered monolight with high speed
sync and TTL for Canon and Nikon cameras. This unit is designed primarily for
use in studio or for photographers who have already invested in external power
packs with sine wave inverters. Slightly smaller than the S1, the S1a works
seamlessly with its battery-powered counterpart at a 40% lower price point.
The Interfit S1a HSS TTL Flash (INTS1a), AC only includes:
- 1 – S1a Flash Head
- 1 – 18cm (7″) Standard Reflector – with Bowens S-Mount
- 1 – 13′ (4m) Power Cable
- 1 – Micro-USB Cable
- 1 – Sync Cable
The S1 has three different shooting modes, each to serve a different purpose and
shooting style. Interfit’s new S1 Remote for Canon or Nikon enables
photographers to take advantage of their camera’s TTL system just like they
would with a speedlight. This automated light output uses the S1’s entire 7 stop
power range (500Ws – 7.8Ws), is automatically calculated in 1/10th stop
increments, and allows for +/- 3 stops of exposure compensation, manually
adjustable within 1/3rd of a stop. Having an automated flash exposure allows the
photographer to quickly and easily achieve their vision. This automatic mode is
ideal for environments with constantly changing ambient light, and shoots that
require you to quickly change your setups or location.
For those that prefer to have complete control over their light and have time
for fine-tuned adjustments, the S1 can be used in the traditional manual mode.
Manual shooting mode also utilizes the entire 7 stop power range, controllable
in 1/10th stop increments. While in manual mode, users gain access to the S1’s
High Speed Sync mode, reaching shutter speeds up to 1/8000th of a second. High
Speed Sync mode utilizes the top 4 stops in the power range (500Ws – 62.5Ws) and
is manually adjustable in 1/3rd stop increments.
Utilising IGBT technology, the S1 is able to offer short flash durations while
maintaining color accuracy throughout the power range. Flash duration ranges
from 1/1,000 at full power, down to 1/9,000 at minimum power. By shortening the
flash durations, we were also able to improve color accuracy, giving the S1 a
consistent 5700k (+/-100k) color temperature throughout the entire power range.
S1 TTL Remote:
The S1’s TTL remotes give the users direct control over any S1 light in any
shooting mode from the camera position. This camera-mounted transmitter is
available for both Canon and Nikon camera’s and supports E-TTL ll and i-TTL
protocol, respectively. Having three individual groups gives users the freedom
to control lights individually to create dynamic lighting ratios with a working
range of up to 100m (300’).
Interfit S1a – AC-powered flash:
The S1a has all of the same features as the S1 sans battery. This unit is
designed primarily for use in studio or for photographers who have already
invested in external power packs with sine wave inverters. Slightly smaller than
the S1, the S1a works seamlessly with its battery-powered counterpart at a 40%
lower price point.
We made durability our priority for our portable flash units, so we built the S1
and the S1a within a strong and lightweight aluminum body rather than plastic.
We also include a frosted glass diffuser dome to protect the flash tube. Both
the S1 and S1a feature the widely-used Bowens S-Type modifier mount, giving
users hundreds of high quality and affordable modifier options to choose from
including Interfit’s line of softboxes, reflectors, grids, beauty dishes and
more. A mini-USB cable is included with every light, allowing for firmware
updates when new cameras are released.
