Flaghead Photographic, the UK & Ireland distributor of German brand Hedler lighting equipment, has released two new continuous lighting kits. Each one includes some of Hedler’s latest self-contained HMI lamps, the DF15 and DX15 series, which use 150 Watts of power but are claimed to emit the equivalent light output of a 650 Watt halogen lamp.
What is the difference between the DF15 and DX15? The DX15 is a fixed floodlight (with safety glass) while the DF15 has a fresnel that can focus Â its beam angle from 15Â° to 65Â° (with a safety grid). Neither unit has a noise-making cooling fan so they can be used in video production as well as stills photography.
The first of the two bundles is called the Hedler DF15 Focus Kit, including a pair of DF15 heads, barndoors for each, cables, bulbs and a handy case to put everything in. This will set you back Â£1570.90 including VAT.
The other kit is called the DX & DF15 3-Head Kit, containing two DX15 heads, one DF15, a set of barndoors, a ‘Maxisoft’ and a ‘Maxisun’ reflector with scrim, plus stands, cables, bulbs and a case for it all. For this lot you’ll be paying Â£2,338.80 including VAT.
