A flash that never breaks?
That's probably what most photographers want.
We have made it our mission to develop just such a device. In the last ten years we have repaired numerous flashes from various manufacturers and gained our experience from this. We know that there are studio flashes that are faster, or that look nicer, and there are also cheaper ones on the market. While the brand stores are experts in their own brands, most are just selling. They don't have their own repair shop. We have learned from the mistakes of others.
Thanks to our experience, we know which parts of studio flashes break particularly often and have therefore avoided these sources of error. We have developed studio flashes that are particularly durable.
A Mikrosat studio flash never breaks.
That is our promise and our guarantee to you.

Working has never been so much fun! All flashes in the DIGITAL R series can be operated with a remote control *or even from a PC and MAC*. The only thing the lightning bolts can't do yet is take pictures, but after all that's your job!
Among the numerous studio flashes from Mikrosat, the Digital R series is the pinnacle of studio lights. The Digital R studio flashes are considered to be the most reliable of the studio flashes intended for everyday use due to their manufacture, quality and functionality.
The DIGITAL12R is the entry in our DIGITAL R series. As with all DIGITAL R compact studio flashes, all important information is shown on an illuminated LCD display. Despite the enormous power, charging time and flash duration leave nothing to be desired. The 12R flashes reliably and consistently with the same color temperature, so that the lifespan of the flash doesn't show in your photos. A fan provides cooling under the aluminum housing. If the worst comes to the worst, the flash monitors the temperature of the capacitors and regulates them down if necessary, which significantly extends their service life.
With the radio module*, several flashes can be combined into groups and set remotely at the same time or separately.
Convenient, fast, precise setting thanks to high-tech rotary controls.
In addition to the latest technology, we also thought of the good old control dial - so valued by photographers - which combines today's high-tech with the usual functionality. Never get lost in confusing menus again! Flash energy and modeling light can be set in next to no time using the dials, other frequently used functions (photocell, readiness display, modeling light functions) have their own on/off buttons.
Who has time to wait for the flash?
Anyone who has missed a unique moment knows how important it is that the flash waits for the photographer and not the other way around. Compared to its predecessor, the loading time has decreased by 50%. What does that mean? 1200 Ws in 1.5 seconds! Convinced?
With the Digital R series, constant light measurement is no longer necessary!
The device has an ACS function (Aperture Control System). With this system it is enough to measure the light once and set the values on the flash. If the flash energy changes, the flash automatically determines the necessary aperture setting.
The aluminum electrolite capacitors built into the flash were specially developed for heavy use. Thanks to their stability, they tolerate fast charging and flash triggering. The charge is directed to the flash tube as quickly as possible. Guaranteed long life.
Newly developed protective glass
The removable protective glass is attached with a thread, which makes it much easier to change the flash tube, the modeling light or protective glasses with different color temperatures.
Robust, easily adjustable tripod connection
Thanks to the well thought-out connection, you can securely attach light shapers of any size and weight. The rail below the flash head allows you to shift the center of gravity of the flash light shaper unit in order to be able to achieve the optimal position.
5 year guarantee also on the flash tube
*USB adapter for the PC, radio module and radio remote control are not included in the price!
