This is a basic K5600 Joker-Bug 800W HMI . 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.
When K5600, Inc. introduced this unique wattage to the market in 1999, we expected it to be a welcomed change…But never did we expect it to become our # 1 seller and discontinue our own 1200! A JOKER-BUG 800 owner obviously understands the enormous advantages of this unique fixture.
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. Utilizing our BUG™ “bare-bulb” design we can produce an amazing 50% more output than a JOKER 1200!
READY TO FLY
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) monopolizes an entire circuit whereas the JOKER-BUG 800 will allow for another source such as a JOKER-BUG 400 on the same circuit!
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Less is More – JOKER-BUG 800 puts out 50% more light than a 1200 in a Chimera®.
Less is More – JOKER-BUG 800 is smaller than its nearest lower wattage (575). And fits in the same case as a JOKER 400!
Less is More – JOKER-BUG 800 only draws 10.5 Amps allowing for a 400W to be used on the same circuit!
