SoftSun 3.6K Cylinder

The unique SoftSun 3.6K Cylinder light offers SoftSun’s renowned natural illumination and extraordinary color rendering in the widest angle coverage available. The SoftSun 3.6K Cylinder is the first head to provide an ultra-wide beam spread of 100 degrees in all directions.

The light weight of the SoftSun 3.6 Cylinder (only 21 pounds) and compact ultra-low profile (featuring a glass tube enclosure of only 6” in diameter) make it ideal for mounting on a moving vehicle or lighting hard-to-reach spots without being seen by the camera. In the movie Serenity, it was built into the futuristic set to be seen on camera.

Balance 5000 degrees Kelvin interior light with exterior daylight with the powerful SoftSun 3.6K Cylinder by easily placing it out of sight just outside a window, over a doorway, over a window, in a corner or any tight constricted space.


Award-winning SoftSun® lights offer an array of unmatched performance advantages, including:

INSTANT START – SoftSun® lights requires no warm-up time. They achieve maximum power and proper color temperature the moment they are turned on.

FULLY DIMMABLE – SoftSun® lights are the only daylight color temperature light source that can be dimmed throughout 97% of its range with minimal shift in color temperature (about 100º Kelvin throughout).

EXTRAORDINARY COLOR AND RENDERING – Built around our proprietary Enhanced Spectrum Plasma™ lamps, SoftSun® lights’ color spectrum is smooth and even with none of the annoying color spikes or gaps associated with HMI or limited spectrum of Tungsten lamps. Enhanced Spectrum Plasma™ lamps provide a CRI of 96 or better and feature a 5000ºK color temperature that doesn’t vary from one lamp to another or with age.

NATURAL SOFT SOURCE – SoftSun® lights’ unique large linear bulb and reflector design result in a light source that begins as a soft natural light without the addition of diffusions to achieve the desired soft effect. There is no need to back the light off from its subject. The SoftSun® beam is natural and usable as close as one foot from the source. The parabolic 3.5K fixture provides a similarly soft source with a unique ability to wrap the subject with light from all angles.
