K 5600 Lighting K0800CR Overview

The K5600 Crossover Kit for the Joker-Bug 800W not only improves the light articulating potential of the Bug but opens the up a whole new world of light shaping tools to you. The included frosted Beaker removes some of the specular quality of the light making ideal for use inside a softbox, very much like the dome on Profoto flash heads.

And speaking of Profoto, the included Crossover Adapter allows you to use virtually all of their light-shaping tools from reflectors to softboxes. If your demand for quality led you to purchase K5600 products, then you may already own Profoto gear for the same reason. But even if you don't, Profoto is one of the most universally rented systems world-wide. The kit also includes an 800W HMI lamp for the head and an electronic ballast to power it.

question

I am a lighting director living in South Korea. I uses electricity to 220v plug in south korea. Can you provide me a power supply consisting of a 220v plug?
Asked by: woojin j.
Both ballasts included in the above kit are dual voltage, operating from 90-265V current. As such, all you would need would be two (2) plug adapters for your needs, such as the Watson Adapter Plug - 3-Prong USA to 2-Prong Europe, B&H # WAAPGUSAE. The above adapter will allow you to use the above kit in South Korea.

question

I just want one of these units. Can you link me to the exact same unit, with only one instead of two?
Asked by: Anonymous
We offer a one light kit like the K 5600 Lighting Joker-Bug 400W HMI - 1 Light Kit B&H # K5JB400CK, however it doesnt include a softbox. A similar softbox would be the Chimera XS Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox, B&H # CHVPP1BXS, which requires the K 5600 Lighting Speed Ring Adapter for All Joker-Bug Lamp Heads B&H # K5SRBL400. Please see the image below for reference.

question

Can I use a Medium Chimera Video Pro Plus 1 softbox with the Joker800? What speedring would I need?
Asked by: Anonymous
You would need at least this speed ring that I've added to this answer. The Pro of this adapter is that you can spin the chimera bag without spinning the light, which is often very useful. The Con is that this speed ring can't mount an Octaplus chimera, and if you're looking to purchase a chimera and want a beauty light, or you just want the more versatile piece of equipment for your package at the same exact price, you may as well buy the k5600 joker octaplus speed ring which has 8 pole slots as opposed to this one which only has 4. That speed ring I speak of isn't on this website though, couldn't tell you why.

question

Is this light 50% or 100% dimable?
Asked by: Caleb T.
Currently this unit is not dimmable. We do have a new dimmable ballast that will begin shipping in April. Please check with us in April for an update as to availability. It will become the standard ballast for this kit once it is completed and in stock.
