High powered (2400 or 800 watt tungsten equivalent) cool light heads with patented light bulb technology provide highly energy efficient, cool running and silent power with over 5 times more light output per watt than quartz halogen or incandescent lights. These daylight balanced HMI HID CDM lights can mix with natural daylight without a blue color gel or expensive diachronic filter over your light.  And with digital cameras or DV cams, your white is white without the amber tint. Output is daylight 5200k and mixes great with ambient daylight without the need for conversion gels. Plus, photographers can mix these HMI HID lights with your with electronic flash as the color temperature is the same.   For HMI Light Kits Click Here

 PLC Superbright 2400 and Starbright 800 Product Photography Kits and Tent Kits

The SuperBright 2400 is power adjustable 1/3, 2/3 and full and puts out a tungsten equivalent of 2400 watts Lighting Power while being a big Energy Star using only 450 watts!  Numerous softbox sizes and shapes are available as well as 8 and 16 inch reflectors with optional barndoors and grids.

The HMI Bulb is a double envelope white frosted Metal Halide bulb with a color temperature of about 5200K and a life of near 7000 hours. The white glass frosting (not a cheaper coated version) will not wear off the bulb or discolor. Therefore the light emitted from the bulb is softer than cheaper uncoated HMI HID bulbs that produce a harder, harsher light output.   For HMI Light Kits Click Here
