K5600 Joker-Bug 800W HMI - 1 Light Kit includes a single Joker-Bug 800 HMI light head with accessories. See What's in the Box for a full list of included contents.


  • Less is more - outputs 50% more light than a 1200
  • Small is great - fits in the same case size as a Joker 400 and is smaller than its nearest low wattage 575 fixture
  • Low power draw - draws only 11 amps so that you can power your Joker 400 on the same circuit
  • Solid, one piece machined aluminum housing
  • 7" diameter specular parapoblic reflector

Ready to Fly

Due to its small size, this light is also ideal for setting up quickly on location or on set, plus it travels well.

The Joker-Bug 800 fits in one small airline case and weighs only 38 lb. The next wattage up (1200, sold separately) is twice the size and weight. The actual size of the kit is exactly the same as a Joker-Bug 400 Kit.

Location Friendly

When working in practical locations such as homes, offices or business, your power consumption can become a key factor in your production. The Joker-Bug 800 will produce as much output as a 4,000 Watt quartz fixture with the power draw of only 11 Amps, without the risk of overloading your circuit. The next size up (1200) monopolizes an entire circuit whereas the Joker-Bug 800 will allow for another source such as the optional Joker-Bug 400 on the same circuit.

The Housing

Joker-Bug 800 is housed in an aluminum casting in high termperature black. The Striker compartment is manufactured from aluminum in a light gray finish for a stylish light fixture.

9" accessories can be mounted to it's front. 

Includes a shielded extension cable for powering.

The Bulb

Joker-Bug 800 accepts a G22 lamp socket 800W bulb. The socket is highly insulated for hot restrike.

Bulb features a 600 hour maximum life on average.
