    The Pro-B4 is the fastest, toughest battery generator on the market. Its performance rivals even that of the best studio generators out there. But of course, the most important thing is not what it can do, but what it allows you to do. Here are a few examples:

     

    Freeze motion at 1/25,000 of a second.

    The Pro-B4 offers the shortest flash duration of any generator on the market. This opens up creative possibilities that yesterday’s photographers could only ever dream of. Shoot faster than ever before.
