With a heat-resistant construction and 34" diameter, the Para 88HR Reflector from Broncolor allows users to produce precise, efficient lighting using strobe or tungsten fixtures up to 2000W. The reflector's parabolic shape and silver interior yield very high light efficiency, wrapping the subject in brilliant light that emphasizes detail and due to the parabolic form of the reflector, light fall-off only occurs at the Para's extreme edge. This listing is for the reflector only. A focusing tube and a focusing device are required for use.

Versatility

Known for its quality of light, the Para 88HR can be used as a powerful spot or a soft light with diffusers or honeycomb grids, for continuous lighting, or flash operation.

Focusing and Defocusing

The most important light design parameter of the ParaHD is the ability to position the lamp head within the reflector to focus or defocus the light source. When in focus, the light is strongly aligned and has a spot-like character with high contrast. To defocus a Para, the light source is moved towards the opening of the reflector producing a soft "cloud" of light with wrap-around qualities but with still enough edge to emphasize the structure of objects and details of skin and makeup.

Three-Dimensional with Gloss Effect

What differentiates the ParaHD from other large reflectors is that the light radiates frontally from the optical axis giving objects a sculptural, three-dimensional appearance.

question

If I have Profoto B1 and B2 lights, can this reflector or the Para 133 be adapted? or does getting it with the rod supply all the light but then what about a power source, Do I need a power pack?
Asked by: Carollyne
Yes, all four sizes of Paras can be adapted to Profoto, using the Para adapter for Profoto, B&H #BRPAP88FB, Manufacturer #B-33.489.03. The adapter attaches to the end of the included focusing rod and allows for a Profoto head to be attached like a reflector or softbox would.Your existing Profoto lights can be used, however we strongly advise using a light with a fully exposed flash tube or dome to ensure optimal light quality from the Paras.

question

Can you confirm that HR version is identical to non HR version but with higher heat resistance? I want use this for both still and video and I dont want make mistake. Thanks.
Asked by: Hosong N.
The HR version and non-HR version offer the same assembly method, though the use of high-heat materials allows for the 'focused' position of the lamp to be slightly brighter than the non-HR Para. If the intended use is both strobe and continuous lights, the HR version is recommended.

question

I ordered this para 88 kit from our local provider. And now I want the 133 but don't have the budget. Can I buy only the 133 reflector (I know there is a separate reflector for the 88 B-33.482.00) and adapt the focusing tube from the 88?
Asked by: Bobkov
The Para 133 reflector is not available standalone, it can only be purchased with the focusing device and focusing tube F or FT

question

I saw that the description says that comes with the focusing device, but what is the focusing device that we are talking about? is that one that goes with the flash or the hmi or is can be use with both system?
Asked by: Claudio L C.
The Focusing Device refers to the component that mounts to the rear of the Para reflector and supports the focus rod.This part supports both Focusing Rod FT133 (for HMI/Tungsten) and Focusing Rod F133 (Strobe / other adapters).
