Paul Buff DigiBee DB400 Flash Unit Sweepstakes

Register to win a Paul Buff DigiBee DB400 Flash Unit ($309.95 Retail Value) we are giving away.

According to the company:


The DigiBee is a powerful, all-digital, self-contained photographic flash unit, available in two models: the DB400 unit (160 Ws) and the DB800 unit (320 Ws). Each unit offers consistent output, fast recycle, and true “What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get” modeling lamp accuracy with a new digital interface that adds optional visual and/or audible recycle indication, slave eye on/off settings, and four modeling modes (on full, off, flashpower tracking, and independent adjustment). With a broader range over our original AlienBees units, the DigiBees offer 7 f-stop power variability with precise adjustments in 1/10 f-stops. All adjustments can be made on the unit’s rear digital control panel, featuring a responsive digital display that indicates the flashpower output, modeling lamp output, or parameter status in each of the adjustment categories.

With the inclusion of a bright, high intensity LED modeling lamp, the modeling lamp becomes more than a tool for previewing the light output, as the DigiBee can be used for still or motion photography, delivering a bright, clean light source for a wide variety of subjects. The permanent LED is a 400 Watt equivalent lamp, daylight-balanced at 5600K.


The DigiBee is compatible with our full line of light shaping modifiers and support accessories, including reflectors, softboxes, umbrellas, light stands, and more. The unit arrives with a sync cord for hardwired camera connection and has a slave eye for wireless triggering as well, with the slave eye mounted on top of the unit for better sensitivity. Additionally, the DigiBee includes a port for our CyberSync CSXCV transceiver, allowing the unit to be triggered and/or controlled wirelessly by our CyberSync wireless system. See our CyberSync system to learn more!

As the DigiBee has 120 VAC (50-60 Hz) power requirements, it arrives with our 15-foot power cord to connect to a standard, grounded outlet for power. For location work, the unit is designed for use with our Vagabond portable battery power systems.

With rugged, compact design, high-impact polycarbonate housing, a robust metal stand mount, and internal fan cooling, the DigiBee is designed for heavy duty use, but boasts an unbelievably tiny size and lightweight frame making it ready for travel.

Looks like it has better quality and features than price alone would indicate. Something I would seriously think of purchasing.
