The K5600 K0400JB Joker-Bug 400W Kit is comparable to a 1500/2000 Watt quartz fixture with a power draw of only 5.5 Amps. The Joker-Bug is often used for fine daylight interiors, car shots, two camera interviews, TV magazines, documentaries and industrials.

This light offers the most flexible optical configuration for location lighting by achieving spot to flood rations of 80 to 1 with beam angles from 5 degrees to as wide as 55 degrees.

In the Bug-Lite mode (without optics) the lights are used as traditional light banks. It is also used as a lantern using the sides as a large reflector and collecting the max output of the lamp. This allows it to fill the front screen very evenly. The 800 Watt and 400 Watt fixtures are very powerful in daylight interiors and can operate in any position including pointing straight down.

The Joker is in Joker-Bug mode is when the Beamer Optical Accessory is in use. It becomes a directional PAR unit offering various beam patterns through quick lens changes.

The MSR lamp with its GZZ 9.5 base is considerably smaller than the next traditional Wattage, the 575 (G22 base); this in turn allows for more compact and shorter fixture design. The shorter arc gap of the 400 makes up for the difference of output between 400 and 575 and the lower Wattage does not require forced air cooling of the power supply.

The small, quiet ballast can be hidden anywhere and plugs in a circuit without the risk of overloading.
