PAR lights are a staple of film and video production. These open face hot-lights provide a wide beam spread, variable by a focusing mechanism or by supplementary lenses which attach to the front. But what about strobe user's looking for a more cinematic light quality? Always looking for ways to expand their arsenal of light-shaping tools, Profoto combined the characteristics of their popular Zoom Reflector with the best qualities of PAR fixtures to offer the Cine Reflector Video Production Kit.
The black powder-coat painted Cine Reflector, which fits all Profoto flash heads, features numerous creature comforts like a large integral handle and a double layer housing to protect the user from heat. An umbrella bracket is built into the unit for bounce light options. Out of the box, the beam angle is zoomable from 35 - 105° using the familiar Profoto collar mount. But this is one extremely comprehensive kit. Five supplementary lenses are included to vastly enhance this already impressive performance. The Fresnel lens focuses the light output for sharp shadow and sunlight effects. The remaining lenses are a Super Wide and Wide Flood, Narrow Spot, Medium Flood and Wide Flood. The Cine Reflector, which supports the flash head, is itself supported by a large metal yoke with ratcheting handle and a 5/8" (16 mm) receiver for light stands.
The kit also includes a set of metal barndoors, a filter and adapter kit and a 4 scrim kit that is comprised of full single and double scrims and half single and double scrims.
