Over Christmas, Adorama had a sale for a pair of Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro TTL R2 Battery-Powered Monolights. I'd like to split this package and I have one of the XPLOR 300's available. It's brand new essentially with only 20 pops. I tested the unit including it's features to ensure that once sold, the unit would be without any issues.

The regular price for the Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro TTL R2 Battery-Powered Monolight is $499.00

This sale isn't about making money. It's just a matter of breaking even with splitting the package.

Price is firm at $399.00 shipped. No post boxes please

Check/Paypal. Please allow time for the check to clear before I ship. I've sold 2 items on UHH with a 100% satisfaction. Long standing members on UHH will be considered first. Sorry, I'm just being careful.

Further information can be found at https://www.adorama.com/fplfx300ptb.html

It weighs in around 3 lbs and will fit in a camera backpack easily. It's a great balance of features and power in a small package.

I am interested and have two questions: 1. I do industrial high speed photography, what is the fastest flash duration at the lowest power setting? 2. Do you accept PayPal?

Robert Hall performed an extensive test on the Flashpoint Xplor 300 Pro and T1 Flash duration was part of the testing. According to his figures, the flash performed better than the specs touted by the manufacturer. Here's a YouTube link and I've included a screen capture to his finding for quick reference. I do know you can display the T1 duration on the back of the monolight. To take full advantage of the T1 duration you need to turn off the color correction.

I'd prefer certified check Julian. I don't have a paypal account and using that service will force me to sell the light less than my cost.
