Dos Joker-Bug 200 Joker-Bug 200 Beamer Joker-Bug 200

Joker-Bug 200

Its compact size, high output (comparable to a 1K Quartz), low power draw (only 1 Amp !), and daylight 5600K has made of this system the standard for feature films, television shows, documentaries... for two decades.

2 configurations

The "Bug-Lite" configuration is designed to fill evenly a Lantern or any size Lightbank, making it the perfect light for interviews. Thanks to its light weight, it can be hung safely at the end of a boom arm.
With the beamer and the 4 PAR 36 lenses (Frosted Fresnel, Super Wide, Wide and Medium), the Joker-Bug 200 can achieve beam spreads from 5° to 65°.

More Versatility : 3200K and 5600K

The new Joker-Bug 200W uses a different bulb, the LCL 200W designed by Havells-Sylvania, which is slightly longer than the regular single ended 200W MSR. These discharge bulbs comes in two different color tempratures, 3200K and 5600K. Switching from daylight to tungsten for a scene’s look is done in few minutes, simply by changing lamps.

Available kits

The Joker-Bug 200 exists in 2 kind of kits : the classic Joker-Bug kit and the Evolution kit.
In the Evolution kit, the beamer is lighter and the ballast is different. The purpose of the Evolution kit is to have a versatile lighting kit, at an affordable price, without compromise on the quality and reliability for which K5600 has been known for many years.
