Kino Flo 4x4ft Bank
The Kino Flo 4BANK “Select” System consists of a four lamp fluorescent fixture operated by a remote ballast.
Kino Flo’s 4ft. 4Bank provides a soft, energy efficient light source which is popular on film, video and photo sets. DP’s and photographers love the Kino Flo 4ft 4Bank for it’s soft, wrapping light, which works perfect for portraits. Great for use as a key or fill light providing near shadowless light. Many Kino Flo fixtures are used by pros for quickly and easily lighting chroma key green screens.
A nice feature of the Kino Flo 4ft. 4Bank is the ability to switch from daylight 5600K to tungsten 3200K by simply swapping out the fluorescent tubes. Kino Flo lamps are available in daylight, tungsten, chroma key green and chroma key blue.
Four 4ft. 4Bank Kino Flos will run on (1) 20A circuit making it easy to light a large area on just one circuit.
The Select Ballast is flicker free at any camera speed or shutter angle with controls to power four lamps with individual lamp switching at high-output or standard-output settings. The same ballast will power 4ft or 2ft fixtures.
The 4BANK “Select” System is a soft key or fill source that can be used instead of diffusing light through fabric or bouncing light off foam core, as with conventional HMI or tungsten sources.
As a comparison, the 4ft 4BANK is equal to a 1.2K HMI fresnel bounced, with these added advantages:
- Lower power consumption.
- Cooler operation.
- Better control of light with barn doors and louvers.
- Uses less set space.
- Can match to daylight, tungsten or existing fluorescent lighting without filtration.
The lightweight fixtures, weighing from 6 lbs to 10 lbs, make a day of multiple set ups quick and easy. At the end of the day, lamps can remain in the fixture for storage and transportation.
