This is a film light which has about the same light output as a red-head but at only 150W power consumption. It uses a bulb which is used in HMI lights. The parts are:
- Lanzini, Alaska display light. They are the lightest and available from many places but any other for 150W MH bulbs will do.
- par 56 barn doors. They fit exactly around the light
- aluminium U shaped bar & self tapping screws (see picture below):
- Calumet rapid adapter which allows mounting the lamp on a standard tripod
Important is that the bulb has a colour rendering index (CRI) of more than 90%. The Osram Powerstar bulbs are generally best and are indistinguishable from daylight on camera. They have a colour temperature of 5200K which is the same as daylight. They work nicely as a fill against the ceiling in a INT/DAY scenario and also as a source of sunlight. If used in interior shots it is recommended to balance the camera also to daylight and wrap half C.T. blue around practical lights which are usually too bright anyway.
