Photo Lighting: Complete Norman MonoLight Photography Studio Lighting - $1400 (Midway)


condition: good
make / manufacturer: Norman
model name / number: ML 400

Selling a full set of Norman MonoLights (ML Series).

The set consists of one ML-600 and five ML-400s (3 of which have the built-in Pocket Wizard), and a variety of attachments, adaptors, light modification and other supporting equipment.

It’s a great product line, and these units have been around for YEARS. They’re built like tanks…. very sturdy, high performing and reliable. All function properly except one ML400 is questionable (probably needs a new bulb but we can tinker with it to further assess).

I have a STRONG preference to sell it all in one shot. Therefore, I’ll take $1,500 (Fair and FIRM) if you want it all.

Otherwise, if nobody buys it all in two weeks, I’ll offer individual sales for the prices listed in the “Current Value” column. Email me with which ones you want and I’ll contact you if we go that route. Or simply buy it all and re-sell if if you’d like to keep some and make a buck on the rest.

This is well over 5k worth of equipment (new) listed at very reasonable prices. I will not accept lower offers as all items have been well-researched and are priced to sell. You’re essentially getting 5 powerful units for the price of 2 (and everything else).

It’s a perfect package for someone who wants an easy way to get all the critical lighting needs within one ecosystem for a photography studio. No fussing with different attachments and different modifiers as you piecemeal together what you stumble upon. Plus, additional used Norman equipment can often be found rather cost effectively at West Photo and around the web. Because they’re moonlights, you won’t need a power pack, and adjustments are as simple as bumping up and down the digital dial on the back.

Note: Norman and Photogenic are made by the same company and their attachments work both ways.
