Paul C. Buff Einstein 640 monolight to begin shipping next week  
Thursday, April 1, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
Shipping of the Paul C. Buff Einstein 640 monolight is to commence shipping April 5, says company founder Paul Buff in a forum post earlier today: "The first Einstein shipments are going out Monday. With some 3400 per orders it will take some time to ramp up production and shipping to reach ship-from-stock status."

In a separate post, Buff notes the monolight's current US$439.95 U.S./Canada price is slated to rise to nearly US$500 before long: "the cost of producing Einstein has exceeded our original expectations, so we are projecting a price increase to $499.95 in the fairly near future." He also says the price of White Lightning units are poised to drop.

Colour temperature consistency and crisp freezing of motion are the signature features promised for the Einstein 640, which was announced in October 2009. Other features include worldwide power compatibility, full power recycle time of 1.7 seconds, 2.5-640ws range in 1/10-stop increments, digital controls and compatibility with the Cyber Commander wireless control system (this requires the optional CSXCV transceiver). More information is in a previous article.
