This K5600 Joker-Bug 200/400W HMI AC/DC PAR 2-Light Combo News Kit operates on 90-265 VAC, or from your 14-30 VDC Anton Bauer power supply. The Joker-Bug 200 News has an output comparable to 750/1000 watt quartz fixture, but with a power draw of only 3 amps. This unit has become a standard for small interiors, interviews, documentaries and car shots.
The Joker-Bug 400 output is comparable to a 1500/2000W quartz fixture, but with a power draw of only 5.5 Amps. It's powerful enough to make a difference in daylight interiors even through diffusion materials and light banks. Each fixture's beamer is open faced and allows for focusing from spot and flood, meaning it does not require additional lenses.

Joker News 400 W HMI - 1 Light System
This is a basic K5600 Joker News 400 W HMI - 1 Light System built around the K5600 Joker-Bug 400.

It's powerful enough to make a difference in daylight interiors even through diffusion materials and light banks.
This unit has been adopted as the choice for Motion Picture Gaffers and cameramen for use with fine daylight interiors, car shots, and two camera interviews where they are most present.
This kit includes a power supply, beamer, barndoor set, and HMI bulb. Add a light stand of your choice to complete the kit (optional).
The Joker News 400 requires virtually no set up time.
The fixture offers two fixtures in one: an Omni-directional fixture and a directional focusable open face flood.
The focusing of the included News Beamer parabolic reflector changes the beam pattern from Spot to Flood in a 3 to 1 ratio, achieving beam angles from 16 to 45°.
Used without the News Beamer, the Joker News becomes a Bug-Lite, perfect for use with a softbox.
The Video Pro Plus is designed for use with HMI and hot lights up to 500 Watts, or strobes. Because of its small size and silver interior, light quality will be spectral with a faster gradation from highlight to shadow areas.
The 16 x 22" size is portable and lightweight. It may be taken on location easily. The "Plus" designation of this softbox means you can remove the front face of the softbox if you like.
Chimera makes different strengths of diffusion material for front face applications. This softbox comes with a one stop, a 1/2 and 1/4 grid cloth diffuser. These allow more light transmission and less softening of the light.
This size is suitable for a one, or two person portrait, or interview.
Speed Ring Adapter for All Joker-Bug Lamp Heads
The K5600 Speed Ring Adapter for All Joker-Bug Lamp Heads allows mounting of a small Video Series rectangular softbox or lantern to the front of all versions of the Joker-Bug.
