Stellar Lighting Systems Vari-Flo Lights are professional tools designed and built to hold up to the everyday challenges of video production. The sturdy metal housing is protected by the padded carrying case, and the barn doors fold up nicely to protect the bulbs inside.
Vari-Flo Lights are user-friendly and can accept a variety of 55w fluorescent light bulbs with the 2G11 4-pin base. These standard lamps offer color temperatures from 2800 – 5600 degrees Kelvin and are available from Osram, Sylvania, Kino Flo, GE, Phillips and other manufacturers, so you'll never have to worry about finding a bulb or lamp to create the exact look that you want.
The ballasts are very quiet, even when dimmed--so silent, they can be placed near the subject without fear of teh sound equipment picking up any noise that might compromise your work. The ballasts can deliver a whopping 2100 lumens per 55watt bulb and have a 6 f-stop dimming range, equal to the specifications of lights that cost five times as much. In addition to the dimmer control on the housing, Stellar Lighting Systems Vari-Flo Lights come with a remote dimmer control on a six foot cord. You will never again need to bring the light down to adjust the output.
The new 8- lamp 2-circuit Vari Color System fixture lets you control the color temperature of the light without changing the lamps. The Vari Flo 880 comes with four 3200 degree Kelvin and four 5600 degree Kelvin lamps. It has two dimmers that control four lamps each (every other one) allowing for complete color temperature control. This is an industry first, available only from Stellar Lighting Systems.
