The Atom 180 is basically a high-quality hotshoe flashgun on steroids.
It has all the normal flashgun features of small size, light weight, battery power etc., and it has other important benefits too.
Guide No. of 60(m) or 196 (ft). This is a TRUE guide number, measured at 100 ISO with the standard reflector. (Guide numbers for hotshoe flashguns are exaggerated by taking measurements at their maximum zoom range).
It has a removable reflector, this allows any of the range of Atom Light shaping tools to be used with it, greatly increasing its creative capabilities, and also means that it can be used bare bulb. This is especially important when used with a softbox, as it allows the light to spread around the softbox walls, cover the entire area and produce very even illumination.
Recycling at full power is 2.6 seconds at full power and becomes progressively faster as the power is reduced. At minimum power, it is ready for use in just 0.05 seconds (1/20th second), allowing it to be used in burst mode with even the fastest cameras.
Flash duration is astonishing too, at full power, the flash duration is a respectable 1/800th second, at minimum power, it is an incredible 1/10,000th second, both figures are t.1 times.
And colour temperature is amazing too, the Atom has a benchmark colour temperature of 5600K and only varies by 200K.
And it is packed with useful features, including:
Full tilt/swivel of flash head
Focus assist beam (switchable)
HSS (high-speed sync requires a suitable flash trigger)
Strobe (take several shots on the same frame, e.g. gymnastics)
Full remote control/triggering (optional extra)
