The K5600 Joker-Bug 400 / 800 2 Light HMI Kit is a powerful lighting tool. Each fixture includes its own multi-voltage AC power supply, 25' extension cable, a set of 4 lenses, a beaker (a frosted tube), a beamer (focusing device), 4 leaf barndoors, HMI bulb, and wheeled hard shell kit case. Also included, are a 16x22" softbox with adapter ring and removable front diffusion screen. All that's left for you to provide are light stands, or grip for mounting the fixtures, a battery belt and something that you wish to light in bright, 5600° light.

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.

After the enormous popularity of the Joker-Bug 200 and 400, the creation of the Joker-Bug 800 seemed logical. It provides twice the output of the 400. The Joker-Bug 800 is comparable to a 3200/4000W quartz fixture but with a power draw of only 12.5 Amps.

Silent Multi-Voltage Power Supplies
The included Power Supplies are electronic, square wave, flicker free. AC input is 90-265 Volts, 50/60Hz. They are convection cooled.
Joker Bug 800
The Joker-Bug 800 fixture throws a beam of light of 5235 footcandles 1.5 feet in diameter from 20 feet, with the included spot lens.
It throws a beam of 164 footcandles 16' in diameter (44° spread from origin) with its Super Wide lens mounted. The other lenses in the kit offer other variations of intensity and beam spread.
Joker Bug 400
The Joker-Bug 400 fixture throws a beam of light of 3860 footcandles 1' in diameter from 20 feet, with no lens mounted.
It throws a beam of 47 footcandles 22' in diameter (44° spread from origin) with its Super Wide lens mounted. The other lenses in the kit offer other variations of intensity and beam spread.
Full Light Control
The Super Wide, Wide, Medium Flood, and Frosted Fresnel lenses, the Beakers, and 4 Leaf Barndoor Sets allow ample control over the shape, spread, and intensity of the light emitted from each fixture.
Add an optional 3200° filter, and scrims for even more control.
Beamers and Softbox
The Beamers are detachable reflectors that intensify the light beam for 1-on-1 interviews. Remove the Beamer and mount the 16x22" softbox, which offers more output of light with no hot spots. The front of the softbox is removable, and 3 diffusion screens with different densities are provided.
Three Wheeled Kit Cases
The wheeled hard kit cases are reinforced heavy duty, foam-lined, with ample room for all components. The lenses have their own cases.
