The Badger Unleashed is a fearless shooting companion like its predecessor, but this time with a battery-powered 250Ws strobe and HSS/TTL capabilities for the ultimate on-the-go flash head!
Building off the success of the Honey Badger, the Badger Unleashed shredded the restraints of an AC power cable and now roams free thanks to a drop-in Lithium-Ion battery. Add in High-Speed Sync and TTL capabilities, and the Badger Unleashed becomes a fearless shooting companion and the ultimate on-the-go flash head!
The Badger Unleashed is a direct response to customer requests for a light with the compact form factor of the Honey Badger and the mobility and high-tech functionality of the S1. We packed 250Ws of power, a 15W LED modelling lamp, and an in-line battery into a small body. Included HSS and TTL for the most versatile Badger yet! This all comes in the bold yellow colour you know, but with new design changes for an unmistakably Interfit experience.
Built-In Battery Power:
The namesake feature of the Badger Unleashed is an entirely DC powered system, offering full portability in a compact body with 250Ws of light in up to 430 full-power flashes. Out of juice? The Badger Unleashed can recharge its battery to full in just 90 minutes, and extra battery packs can be swapped mid-shoot, so you’ll never miss that golden hour at the end of your shoot again!
Compact Form Factor:
The ability to travel with lighting is crucial for a mobile photographer, and size and weight matter. The Badger Unleashed weighs less than 1.8kg, measures 12.7cm wide (15cm including the outer ring), and 17.8cm deep from the back panel to the edge of the protective cap, making it one of the most compact self-contained studio flash heads on the market. The robust and compact housing paired with its on-board battery power make the Badger Unleashed the ideal solution for photographers on the move.
Extended Power Range:
The Badger Unleashed has an incredible 9-stop power range, two more stops than our Honey Badger sister strobe, and four more than traditional studio flash heads. Power can be adjusted from 250Ws down to 1Ws in 1/10th of a stop increments for precise exposure.
Best-In-Class Recycle Time:
At full power, the Badger Unleashed recycles in an impressive 1.5 seconds at full power. Plus, recycle times only get shorter and shorter as you decrease the flash power!
High Speed Sync & Through-The-Lens Metering Modes:
Short flash duration’s give us the ability to freeze motion beyond the capabilities of our shutter sync speed. In HSS mode, the Badger Unleashed has a t.1 flash duration of 1/8000th of a second. With TTL metering, the new Badger is even capable of automatically adjusting flash power for you with +/- 3 stops of exposure compensation as the lighting around your subject changes from shot to shot – simply keep shooting with your viewfinder and the Badger Unleashed takes care of the rest!
15W LED Modelling Lamp:
The Badger Unleashed is equipped with a 15W LED modelling lamp that produces 1250 Lumens. This flicker-free LED can be used as a continuous light source for both photo and video purposes. The modelling lamp can be set to adjust proportionately to the flash power, or to full power. For the most accurate light tone portrayal, we balanced the colour temperature to 5500K – giving you nice daylight balanced colour tones in every scene.
Built-in Radio Receiver:
The Badger Unleashed features a built-in radio receiver that is compatible with all Interfit TTL and manual remotes. This allows full control over the light’s power range, flash mode, modelling lamp, and beep function. When using the Interfit manual remote, the Badger Unleashed can be adjusted individually via 3 different control groups (A-C), across 15 different channels (1-15). With the Interfit TTL remotes you can use it across 8 channels. This allows for intricate multi-light setups and negates interference from neighbouring photographers.
Versatile Modifier Mount:
The most unique feature of the Badger Unleashed is the versatile modifier mount. The Badger Unleashed utilizes the popular Bowens® S-Type modifier mount, making it compatible with all of the same modifiers as the S1, Honey Badger, and any other Interfit or S-Type mount light system. In addition, the Badger Unleashed features the built-in pop-up softbox ring made popular by the original Honey Badger for use with pop-up style softboxes that are popular with speedlight shooters. The idea behind this feature is to allow photographers to grow into their studio lights by allowing them to use some of the existing modifiers they may already have purchased for speedlights.
Glass Dome Diffuser:
The Badger Unleashed includes a frosted glass dome diffuser. This protects the flash tube and helps to spread light evenly throughout the modifier.
