DX-15 press release

The most compact and lightweight “One-Piece” HMI light in its class!

  • Tough, well build Aluminium construction
  • 150 Watt Metal Halogen Lamp (equivalent to 650 W tungsten!)
  • 6,000 hour operating lamp life
  • Flicker-Free light balanced at approx. 5800 deg Kelvin
  • Unique: Build-In Ballast!!
  • Perfect for sound recording, NO fan!
  • For Film, Video, TV and Stills Imaging
  • Huge accessory range: reflectors, barndoors, filters, softboxes.
  • Only Ă‚ÂŁ409.00 + Vat (incl. 1 x 150W lamp)


This brand-new, continuous HMI daylight light unit is unique: It incorporates the light source and the ballast unit in the same housing! This reduces weight (2350gram) and eliminates extra cables, providing the neatest HMI unit on the market. The HEDLER DX15 does not need a fan for cooling, which makes it ideal for sound recordings. Using a special 150 W/SE Metal-Halogen lamp it produces a flicker-free light of approx. 5800 Kelvin colour temperature.

Designed for professional use, the lamp has an average lifetime of approx. 6000 operating hours and the Electronic Ballast will last approx. 60,000 operating hours. The HEDLER DX15s lamp produces a continuous light output that equates a 650 Watt standard Tungsten halogen lamp!

And for those who prefer to work with Tungsten colour balanced light: a special lamp with approx. 3000 K is available for the DX 15 (like the DX 15 metal halide lamp: at a current consumption of 150 Watts it produces a continuous light output power that equates to a 700 (!) Watts standard halogen lamp). The average lifetime of this special, efficient halogen lamp is approx. 4000 hours.

The DX-15 produces a light beam that creates a relatively low temperature in terms of heat, a very important feature for heat sensitive materials and humans.

The HEDLER DX-15 is compatible with a vast range of light shaping accessories used by other Hedler light units: reflectors, honeycombes, softboxes, striplites, reflex umbrellas and many other accessories.

The Hedler DX-15 is available as a single light unit or in Two & Three Head Kits.

The HEDLER range is available from good photo & video retailers. For more details contact the distributors, Flaghead Photographic.
