Broncolor Para 222 Kit without Adapter (33.552.03)
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: Adapter, Stand and Head are NOT included.
"Each time after the prelight, I am amazed at how beautifully the Para has three-dimensionally modelled the face or body!" – Damien Krisl
The Para 222 is easily big enough to create typical Para light, even over medium distances of 5 – 8 m.
Like its big brother it can be completely defocused, and it demonstrates substantially the same light characteristics. However, over larger distances it becomes spot-like (harder) earlier, but over short distances provides the entire variation spectrum at an earlier stage.
Paras 177, 222 and 330FB
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).
The Paras 177, 222 and 330FB can be easily, and without great effort, set up by means of a crank handle mechanism. The rods are also provided with joints that allow the Paras to collapse and shorten to half the usual length for transporting.
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!
The large reflectors have a definite advantage when the uniqueness of the Para light-quality is also desired at a greater distance away from the model.
