Photographic lighting devices and systems having multiple electrical energy storage/discharge (EESD) elements and/or multiple light sources in a single photographic lighting device to perform one or more photographic lighting effects. In one exemplary aspect, independent control of one or more light sources connected to a first EESD bank and another one or more light sources connected to a second EESD bank, such as via control circuitry, may be utilized in producing various lighting effects.

A system and method for synchronizing a photographic lighting device to image acquisition by a camera using light emission profile information to position a light emission profile at a desired location in an image acquisition window. A light energy balance point of a light emission profile can be used to position the balance point at a desired location in an image acquisition window.

A method of synchronizing a remote device to image acquisition by a camera body including detecting a predictor signal of the camera body that occurs a known time prior to shutter opening. The detected predictor signal is used to determine a time to synchronize the remote device to image acquisition via wireless communication. For example, the detected predictor signal may be used to predict when the shutter of the camera will be open. A wireless communication system for synchronizing a remote device to a camera body may include a memory having information used to synchronize the remote device to image acquisition based on the detection of the predictor signal occurring prior to a shutter opening.

A system and method for synchronizing a photographic lighting device to image acquisition by a camera using light emission profile information to position a light emission profile at a desired location in an image acquisition window. A light energy balance point of a light emission profile can be used to position the balance point at a desired location in an image acquisition window.


A system and method for controlling one or more remote photographic flash devices from a camera. An antenna is connected to the camera housing. Wireless functionality within a camera provides wireless communication of a signal from within the camera body to one or more remote devices. In one example, a flash synchronization signal of the camera body may be wirelessly communicated using a wireless communication functionality within the camera body and the antenna. The wireless communication can be utilized for actuating one or more remote devices, such as for triggering one or more remote flash devices.
