Planned to hit stores later this month, Photogenic Professional Lighting has announced three new lines of lighting kits: the Solair(tm), PowerLight®, and StudioMax® III series, each with a different need in mind. All the kits include a softbox from Photogenic, as well as a bevy of other extras, depenging on configuration:

All Solair(tm) and PowerLight® kits include Photogenic Heavy Duty Air-Cushioned Stands. Most competitive brands don't offer this option. All Photogenic Kits with two or more lights include the patented High Quality Photogenic Eclipse Umbrellas. All Photogenic kits include Photogenic PL7R reflectors. Other brands do not include this accessory with their monolights. All new Solair(tm) and Digital PowerLight® kits offer a PocketWizard(tm) Kit version with the radio receiver built-in to the monolight housing. All Kits with two or more lights include a Photogenic soft case w/wheels for ultimate portability or safe storage. All new Photogenic kits include a color-corrected UV flashtube. Four AKC Kits offer a radio version with a built-in 4-channel radio receiver in the monolight housing.

Scattered throughout the list of new gear are a number of travel kits for those of you who want to take your lighting rigs with you on the road. Photogenic is casting this major new offering as a bid to tap into the extremely large market of new DLSR users, as more and more people are drawn to photography.

Unfortunately, we don't have any prices on what these kits will cost you, but since they're due to launch this month, it shouldn't be long before you see them in catalogues and photography stores.

We've embedded a full list of all 24 kits after the jump.

Solair(tm) Kits

There are six kits in the Solair(tm) series. Solair(tm) monolights employ "constant color" technology that prevents the flash color temperature from visibly shifting no matter what power setting is used. "These units are controlled for constant Kelvin color temperatures within 14° per stop over an amazing 8 f-stop range of power settings. There's no warm cast at lower power levels. That's very important when utilizing a multi-light setup," said Higgins.
