EFFECT LAMPS Customised Light.


Without light, there is no photography. Our natural light is the sun. It creates wonderful moods, but its position and colour characteristics are constantly changing, and it often infuriates us by hiding just when deadlines are looming. That is why artificial light was invented. Almost all today’s photographers work with flash light, and agree that light and illumination are the key to better results. Expert lighting is part of each photographer’s signature, and has a decisive effect on his or her professional success. Just like sunlight, broncolor enables a great diversity in the scope of design with its variety

To complete the product range, the accessory assortment comprises stands and attachments, an infrared and a radio remote control system. broncolor offers even more: most modern technology, easy to use and compatibility of the equipment – and all at a fair priceperformance ratio. In this brochure photographers from different countries feature our effect lamps by showing their hands-on examples. You may be surprised at the versatility and extraordinary capabilities of the broncolor flashlight system. BRONCOLOR – THE LIGHT
