The Pag PowerArc HMI Lampholder Unit is designed for use with its miniaturized 12V Paglight M. The PowerArc utilizes a 24W lamp which has an output equivalent to 100W of halogen light, but at daylight color temperature. This makes the Paglight M the industry's most powerful professional daylight balanced camera light for its size. The quality and projection of the light output is far greater than anything that can be achieved using LED lights and yet the power consumption is relatively low. The PowerArc produces a soft, clean and even spectral distribution which is fully-focusable, from spot to flood.
Smaller Paglight for Smaller Camcorders
The Paglight M is a more compact version of the industry standard ENG Paglight. It has a 35mm diameter reflector and measures approximately 90mm, front to back, with the standard halogen lamp holder. Its reduced proportions complement perfectly the new generation of smaller broadcast digital camcorders, as well as DV and high-definition hand-held camcorders.
The Paglight M maintains many of the features first seen in the design of the original ENG Paglight. It is constructed from a specially developed glass-reinforced engineering polymer which is impact resistant, light-in-weight and maintains a low temperature during use. The latter is aided by an efficient heat dissipation system, unique to the Paglight and part of the patented design of the lamp head. The design incorporates the revolutionary plug-in lamp holder feature which enables the light to be instantly converted from halogen to a metal-halide arc light.
More Halogen Power
A useful accessory is the PowerArc Conversion Filter, which can be used to convert the PowerArc color temperature to match that of halogen light sources. Approximately 80W of halogen power would be required to match this light output - too much for normal Li-Ion batteries to be considered as a power source. However, the PowerArc lamp only consumes 24W and can therefore be powered from Li-Ion batteries.
