With four outputs, each with independent control, working with the D4 is like working with four separate flash packs – an excellent generator for packshot and product photography.

D4 1200 Air

Product number: 900891

The D4 is designed with the commercial photographer in mind. It’s incredibly versatile and brimming over with functions and effects, yet almost childishly simple to use. Built with purpose, the D4 takes all kinds of sophisticated photography in its stride – from still life to portraits and even 3D product shots.

It’s a workhorse crafted to produce large quantities of high-quality images at an extremely high rate with no variations in power output and color temperature. While the D4 does not offer extremely short durations, it compensates for this by featuring four individual outputs, each with independent control. So working with one D4 is just like working with four separate flash packs.


  • Capable of producing very large quantities of images at an extremely high rate.
  • Very stable light output and color temperature guarantees absolutely consistent results, shot after shot after shot.
