The Photon Beard Daylight Double Redhead LED kit is a modern version of an old favourite in a super-convenient custom rolling flight case which is both mains and battery powered and works in tungsten or daylight colour temperature. Double battery kit supplied permitting 55 mins run time for both heads.

It may look like a tungsten lamp head but it is equipped with an 80W LED remote phosphor fitting to give high quality light which selectable in either 3200K tungsten or 5600K daylight colour temperature at an equivalent light output to a 400W tungsten redhead. In fact, this lamp working in native 5600K mode gives a comparable light output if you were to add a gel or dichroic to your conventional redhead you would get similar output to our new daylight PB80.

The unit is supplied as standard daylight (5600K) and tungsten (3000K) discs and these can be changed in seconds.

Mains/Battery Powering

The unit is supplied with a universal mains PSU (90 to 260V 50/60Hz) and also Anton Bauer Gold mount, so that it can be easily powered with the dual Anton Bauer battery kit supplied which permits 55 mins operation per battery or is upgradable at additional charge to a 5 way battery kit.

It is supplied with scrims and easily adjustable barn doors and as it is LED, does not generated much heat.

The light output can be dimmed from 0% to 100% and if pushed in will switch the unit on or off in a fixed dimming position.

It is also absolutely silent & flicker free this is a perfect light kit for travel and the VMI kit is transported in a specially modified rigid tripod tube which travels on wheels for easy transportability.

The light quality is very high and this rated 95% on a recent Alan Roberts Colourimetry Test
