Broncolor Para 88 Reflector (33.482.00)
A Para never ceases to impress!
There is no other light that gives bodies, faces and products that much volume and plasticity. No other light is so soft and yet allows skin to glow so wonderfully natural. The broncolor Paras are the most flexible lighting system ever! Whether as a powerful spot, a soft cloud of light, fitted with diffusers or honeycomb grids or used with flash or continuous light – you get exactly the light you want. Always. Everywhere.
Note: Stand and Head are NOT included. This listing is for the Para 88 Reflector ONLY. Please see our other listings for Para 88 Kits or call us for options not listed.
"Each time after the prelight, I am amazed at how beautifully the Para has three-dimensionally modelled the face or body!" – Damien Krisl
Featuring a sensational opening mechanism, with only two quick hand movements on four straining levers, the Para 88 is built up in a few seconds. As a further highlight it may be also used without the focusing unit directly as a reflector.
The super-compact design and patented folding mechanism ensures real convenience and enables setting up in seconds. The Para 88 is even more mobile – perfect for outdoor shootings and smaller studios.
Paras 88 and 133
Regardless of the diameter, all Paras have 24 reflector segments that help to provide the near perfect parabolic shape which is needed for optimum and variable light design. All the sizes have a long focus length in common which allows the light to be varied between almost parallel (focussed) to extremely scattered (defocused).
For Paras 88 and 133 – the mobile, small Paras – broncolor has developed a special, patented opening mechanism. Just two quick hand movements on the four clamping brackets allow the Paras to be set up in seconds.
As a further highlight, they can also be mounted directly (without the focusing device) as reflectors for other broncolor lamp heads.
As well as their opening mechanism, the two smaller Paras also differ from their big brothers in the reflector material. Due to their smaller size, broncolor deliberately uses a slightly textured reflector material so as to ensure that the light is not too aggressive.
All the models have very light and sturdy materials in common. Whilst the main structure is made primarily of aluminium, the rods are made of fibre glass or carbon fibre – titanium alloy for the small Paras. Technology that's normally reserved for motorsport!
