Broncolor Para 177 FT Kit (41.177.00)
Powerful, flexible and really easy to use. Be enlightened by the broncolor FT System.
The broncolor FT System is a continuous lighting system, which is simply unbeatable for light output, flexibility and simplicity.
With four Para reflectors available including accessories and a choice of 800 W / 1600 W daylight or 1000 W / 2000 W (120 V /230 V) halogen lamps, the FT System is as easy to extend as it is to use.
Is photography your passion, or is it video that turns you on? With broncolor's new continuous lighting solution, you no longer have to decide, because Paras paired with halogen or HMI FTs are the right choice for every image, whether it moves or not.
Note: Lamp Device, Stand and Head are NOT included and must be purchased seperately.
broncolor have developed the FT light system so that it always consists of the same components and can be set up in a few minutes, quickly and uncomplicated.
With a crank, the reflector can be unfolded first, independently of everything else. The focusing rod is then mounted and the lamp with its back reflector fitted at the front. The other end of the rod takes the lamphead with integral power supply unit – and ... finished!
Typical Para Light
broncolor Paras were always known for their unique light characteristics. Outstanding quality need not always be complicated. By simply repositioning the light source, you can create the perfect light for every mood and image.
With the ability of focusing the light you will always achieve your objective, because you can direct the light precisely onto your subject so that it falls where you want it. The unique combination of an FT light source and a Para gives you a very high light output!
The apex zone of the 88 HR and 133 HR Paras is made of an especially heat-resistant material tolerant for long periods of time to the very high output 1600FT light source.
The FT System for every application
Video and photo shoots can sometimes be hectic. That is why we have developed the FT light system so that it always consists of the same components and can be set up in a few minutes. Quick and uncomplicated.
With four clamping levers (Para 88 HR and 133 HR) or a crank (Para 177 and 222) the reflectors can be unfolded first, independently of everything else. The focusing rod for that Para is then mounted and the lamp with its back reflector fitted at the front. The other end of the rod takes the lamphead with integral power supply unit – and ... finished!
The broncolor HMI FT1600 is dimmable, provides constant colour at all times, and so is easy to mix with flash and daylight. The light is absolutely flicker-free and thus perfect for high-speed exposures. With a CRI of 95+, the light quality is outstanding.
Halogen light can also be used with the FT System. The FT focusing rod is then fitted with a halogen lamp. The lamphead is then connected directly to the mains without an electronic ballast unit.
The FT rod (for HMI or halogen) can be simply replaced by an F rod for mounting a flash source. And with the right adapter, broncolor lamps and those of many other manufacturers can be mounted in Paras.
With the FT System you are set up for fantastically creative pictures
Should your needs grow, the system is modular and can be expanded as you wish. There is nothing that can come between your ideas and perfect lighting.
