The Siros S includes the ECTC technology you know from our high-end Scoro and Move power packs. ECTC controls the flash curve and guarantees flash durations from 1/19’000 s (t 0.5) and constant colour at all times.
The enormous control range goes up to 9 f-stops, resulting in output as low as 2 joules which gives the photographer an unrestricted choice of aperture. And the lightning-quick charging time, 0.02 to 0.9 s at 400 joules, means you never have to wait.
broncolor offers the world’s most comprehensive range of light modifiers. Siros is fully integrated into this system of unlimited creative possibilities. But that is not all! Two new reflectors have been developed especially for Siros: An umbrella reflector, which is equipped with a cover that also serves as transport protection, and a size-optimised reflector, the L40, with a snap-in system for mounting honeycomb grids barn doors with 4 wings.
Operation: as simple as possible for maximum convenience
All the basic functions of Siros can be operated using the free “bronControl” app. As soon as Siros is logged in to the WiFi network, you can control several devices using a smartphone or tablet with each clearly identified by different-coloured LEDs. In this way equipment that is difficult to access or far away can be conveniently and easily set and controlled. Independently of the existing WiFi environment, Siros can set up its own network.
One more advantage: the app controls the functions of up to 6 units with absolute clarity and full individual control. But even without the app, Siros is still simple and intuitive to operate. With the single rotary controller, the “Twist Function” lets you set the output very quickly over several f-stops or very precisely in 1/10 f-stop steps. By pressing on the same knob you have access to the menu and to all the additional functions. There’s no simpler way.
broncolor’s bronControl app now with great new functions
With the bronControl app, you can control not only the basic Siros functions; there are now additional features that extends the range of applications.
Below the power display for the individual lamps, you can read their flash durations (t 0.1). These durations relate to the power, and they decide whether a fast-moving object is in or out of sharp focus. This flash duration can be shortened by using the “speed” function directly on the unit, or by using the app.
Several Siros heads can be linked together as a group. The output of all the Siros lamps in a group can then be changed simultaneously. The modelling light from all lamps can also be switched on or off simultaneously, or at each Siros individually. In addition, each Siros has its own flash release delay. The release delay can be varied in very accurate steps of 1/100 s. And in the Enterprise mode, the mobile device used to control your Siros can remain online.
Simple and ergonomic
Less is more. When it came to developing Siros, the design team concentrated on a single point: the nitty-gritty. Simple and intuitive operation were centre-stage. The external housing is a single-piece of aluminium. This ensures optimum protection for the advanced technologies inside and, at the same time, gives Siros its light and elegant appearance. The output of Siros and its menu navigation are both regulated by a single rotary controller. The energy regulation, for instance, can be adjusted with a slight turn for steps of 1/10th of an f-stop, and a new “Twist” function for whole f-stops. The newly-developed grip is a double-wall plastic component with a special coating; it is very robust and extremely comfortable to handle. The stand adapter is made of aluminium and, together with the handle, which was specially designed for the purpose, can be used as a built-in floor stand.
Siros was developed for the complete range of broncolor light modifiers! That makes Siros the most versatile monolight on the market. The open design of the flash tube ensures optimum illumination for every light modifier. broncolor offers a solution for every light mood and for every photographic or creative challenge. With cross-system compatibility, even if you add studio or battery-operated power packs from broncolor to your equipment, every penny you invest in accessories and light modifiers will remain usable - without restriction. Siros is integrated into broncolor’s own radio system, RFS 2. In addition, a standard synccable and a built-in photocell are also availble for synchronisation.
