Adaptalux Studio
Quick Start Guide

1. Charge your Control Pod via USB. If an orange light stays on then leave for 20 minutes as the Pod sets up the intelligent battery and light management systems. Flashing red light means the Pod is charging. Solid red, means the Pod is charged and ready to use.

2. Your Pod is now ready to use. Begin by attaching Lighting Arms, make sure the contacts are clean and insert an arm into any of the ports on the front of the control pod. You will feel a magnetic pull, rotate the arm until it clicks into place.

7. To turn off the pod with the lighting arms attached, hold the cycle button for 8-10 seconds, when the indicator light turns green, release to place the pod in “sleep” mode. This uses minimal power, but will still drain the battery, we recommend this for only shot periods of time.
