Why junior fresnels?
Arri Fresnels are the perfect solution in small studios where grid height is a problem. The classic ARRI construction of corrosion resistant extruded and die cast aluminum maximizes body strength while maintaining the lightweight of an ideal location fixture.
Despite the small size, short focal length lenses with wider angles give more light output and better light distribution over the full beam area.
The Arri 300 Watt Plus Fresnel is designed to gather as much light as possible and direct it through the 3.2" (80 mm) low expansion, borosillicate fresnel lens producing a soft, even field of light. The yoke allows it to be attached to any 5/8" stud. Beam angle in the flood position is 49 degrees and a narrow 15 degrees while in the spot position.
PLEASE NOTE : Comes without a plug or a bulb. Bulbs can be bought separately, click on the 'Related Products' tab.
TOP TIP : Use a cloth when fitting the bulb into the lamphead.
Any dirt or even natural oils from the skin can cause bulbs to blow!

"My all time favourite light source at winter weddings is the Arri 300W Fresnel spotlight. The great thing about working with continuous light is you can see exactly what you are shooting and by adjusting the light focus and barn doors all sorts of light shapes can be created. I usually rig my Arri 300w junior on a stand near the middle of a room. I set my camera to my magic exposure of ISO800, 1/60th second, at f/4 and then call in the bride and groom for a shoot session. Julie and I can usually take 8 or 10 frames in a single room in just a few minutes that will make the album. We then let the bride and groom mingle again while we are rigging the Arri in another room." - Damien
