CL-MF0575 Cool Lights HMI Fresnel

PRICE: $2,199.00


Model: "Pro Version"

Now Available.


The Cool Lights CL-MF0575 HMI Fresnel is the perfect, portable hard light compliment to our Softlight series. Based on Osram HMI 575w single ended bulb (or compatible products), it is driven by our "pro" 575/1200 electronic ballast--the same model used with the Cool Lights 1200w par. Operation is flicker free. Ballast is silent with a whisper fan. Lumens per watt is 86 for this solution. Light output is 49,000 lumens, thus it is the equivalent of a 2400w tungsten fresnel.

Includes: 575/1200 watt electronic ballast (100 to 240v 50/60hz), 30 foot ballast to head cable with high quality, quick lock military-style 4 pin connector on one end and a 7 pin ballast connector on the other, 15 foot power cord, yoke, barndoors and baby stand adapter. Everything you need (except for bulb and light stand) to get started right away. The bulb needed is an Osram HMI 575WSE Hot Restrike Single Ended G22 bulb or equivalent.

Also, see our CL-SRB1000 fresnel softbox for a convenient way to diffuse your 575w HMI fresnel!

Insertion of the bulb is as easy as opening the front lid of the fresnel and inserting the 575w HMI bulb into the G22 socket. Care should be taken when handling the bulb to not touch it with bare hands. Use a cloth or soft tissue when handling or inserting it. Finger oils and smudges will weaken the quartz of an HMI or Tungsten bulb and shorten its life.
