Norman Allure C1000 Overview

  • 1Description
  • 2Dual Lamp Fixture
  • 3Glass Dome
  • 4Compatibility

The 1000W Allure C1000 Tungsten Open Face Light from Norman is a constant light source that is great for video and still imaging. Variable output at a constant color temperature makes it the right choice for digital applications. The Allure C1000 system is also available in convenient kits. The Allure effectively "dims" the light without changing color temperature by putting two bulbs inside one diffusion globe. One of the bulbs is a 350-watt, the other is a 650-watt glass base, bi-pin halogen. Together, the light provides 1000 total watts.

This lamp head does not include bulbs.

Dual Lamp Fixture

Unique dual quartz design with independent on/off switches to enable power selection, keeping color temperature constant at the same time.

Glass Dome

Frosted front surface of Glass Dome provides small amount of diffusion.


Accepts most Norman (and Photogenic) accessories.

Is there a speed ring or adapter made by Norman or a third party manufacturer that would allow this light to be outfitted with a softbox?
Asked by: Jered S.
The Photoflex Speed Ring for Norman, B&H # PHSRODN, and the Norman 810905 Adapter Ring for Norman Allure, B&H # NOARDP320, would be needed to connect a softbox to the Norman 1000 Watt Open Face Tungsten Light. For safety reasons, please ensure the softbox you choose is designed for hot lights rated up to 1000 watts.

this is a newbie question, but does this output as much light as say an Arri T1, i.e. both 1000 watts?
Asked by: Bailey G.
this is a very good option, its cheapest than Arri and it works very good. I used to photograph works of art, incluid mural paintings. Works with two lamps, one 350 watts and other 650 watts, you can use both or one of them, thats a good option.

How do I mount an umbrella with this unit?
Asked by: Jered S.
There is a through-hole on the very top of the stand mount mechanism that will accept the umbrella shaft. A small thumb screw secures it into place.
