JokerBug 800 HMI Daylight (5600)

The K5600 Joker-Bug 800W HMI DayLight Kit. After the enormous popularity of the Joker-Bug 200 and 400, the Joker-Bug 800's full f/stop of increased output was a logical progression for K5600. The Joker Bug 800 very powerful in daylight interiors and can operate in any position including pointing straight down.

Because of the increasing use of Chimera® Lightbanks for fine daylight interiors, two camera interviews, TV magazines, and documentaries, we designed this fixture to take full advantage of the large reflective material inside a Lightbank. Utilising our BUG™ “bare-bulb” design we can produce an amazing 50% more output than a JOKER 1200!

The JOKER-BUG 800 fits in one tiny airline case, weighing only 38lbs. The next wattage up (1200) is twice the size and weight. The actual size of the kit is exactly the same as a JOKER-BUG 400 Kit!

When working in practical locations such as homes, offices or business, power consumption is a key factor. The JOKER-BUG 800 will produce as much output as a 4,000 Watt quartz fixture with the power draw of only 11 Amps, never risk overloading a circuit again! The next size up (1200) monopolises an entire circuit whereas the JOKER-BUG 800 will allow for another source such as a JOKER-BUG 400 on the same circuit!
