The SoftSun 50K linear lights are the ideal daylight source for lighting large areas for Feature Film, Television Series and Live Events. The SoftSun 50K linear lights have become an increasingly popular instrument of choice for lighting Large Sporting Events in Arenas and Stadiums.
DP’s and Gaffers have come to rely on the Large Head Softsuns for the lighting of Large Areas with ability to dim a daylight source with no color temperature shift. They have also become the light of choice when shooting high speed photography since they provide flicker free daylight up to 10,000 FPS.
The reasons for Softsuns increases popularity can be attributed to the many advantages they provide compared to HMI’s or other HID fixtures:
- Instant on with No warmup time
- Can be dimmed down to 10% and then ramped up to 100% with No Delay
- Large Sources (25,000, 50,000 and 100,000 watts) so there are way less shadows
- Flicker Free even at high speeds, so there will never be a pulse or a flicker on the video even with 4K and Super Slow-mo cameras
- Daylight source specifically designed for superior High Definition video color rendering
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.
