Shipping underway of revised Paul C. Buff Einstein 640 monolight  
Wednesday, October 13, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
The first units of a revised version of the Paul C. Buff Einstein 640 monolight have left the building.

The Nashville, Tennessee-based lighting maker has today begun shipping the Einstein 640 v2, which corrects shortcomings in the original design including short range with PocketWizard wireless radio remotes, occasional excessive heat buildup when the modeling light is used and problems related to 220VAC operation.

In addition, the front reflector mount has been reworked to provide smoother engaging and disengaging of the mechanism. It also puts a tighter grip on attached reflectors, has less wobble and a more polished appearance.

Paul C. Buff is shipping out Einstein 640 v2 replacements to existing v1 owners and filling Einstein 640 backorders concurrently; if you have a v1 unit now you can expect to be contacted by the company's customer service folks in the days and weeks ahead to arrange the swap. The backlog is expected to take upwards of six weeks to work through. All Einstein 640s shipping from this point forward are the v2 variety, both from the U.S. and by Paul C. Buff Europe and Paul C. Buff Australia.

Additional information is in an earlier story and in a notice on the Paul C. Buff website.
