Lupolux HMI Daylight balanced fresnel spotlights



Lupolux HMI spotlights take about three minutes to reach their peak brightness and correct colour temperature, just like a data projector. During this warm up phase the colour of the light will vary slightly. Once lit, the light will continue to burn for as long as you need. Once switched off, the 800 will not 're-strike' for about four or five minutes until the bulb is once again cool. The lamp life is over 12,000 hours and the lights are extremely resilient, so you need not fear about the bulb blowing if switched on while still hot. Unlike other continuous lamps, the outer shell will get no hotter than an average household radiator and the light created will stay as cool as your subject. 

Key Features:

• Beautiful cool light rendering
• Ideal for Hollywood lighting
• Flood and spot control
• Simple to use
• All the benefits of continuous lighting
• Super lightweight construction
• Small and compact
• Vastly more affordable than other HMI lighting
• Technical email support for all customers
• Quiet running ideal for videographers

The Fresnel Spot Daylight 800 (5600°K)

The Lupolux 800 has a power consumption of 150w and has a light output roughly equivalent to an 800w tungsten light fitted with full CTB gel, hence the 800 in it's name. The Lupolux 800 is super lightweight at just 2.5Kg and is a perfect match for the Arri 050 MKA stand.

The '800' is the photographers subtle light of choice to be used where an Arri 300w might have been chosen. It has a super wide even light pattern in full flood mode and can zoom into a football sized spot of light at 3m distance. It is silent in operation and perfect for movie making too. You can gel this lamp with a full CTO (colour temperature orange) gel to match a tungsten lit interior and still get the same light output as the Arri 300w unit. Temperature correction gels are available here. The bulbs last a great deal longer too, so in the long term the running cost of this light will be lower than the Arri.

The Fresnel Spot Daylight 1200

The Lupolux 1200 spotlight has now been discontinued.

Plugs
Lupolux lights will come fitted with the plug relevant to your country of residence. If you have different requirements just let us know.

Bulbs
All Lupolux HMI lights come supplied with a bulb. To ensure the safe delivery of bulbs they will not be fitted inside the lamp but wrapped up separately. They are very easy to fit however by simply unscrewing the front casing and inserting the bulb. The spare cold restrike bulb available below is only suitable for older non hot-restrike models.

Buying replacement bulbs
Some earlier Lupolux HMI 1200 models may require a Sylvania bulb rather than the Phillips bulbs shown below. The bulb you require will be the same brand as that already fitted. So to check your current lamp/bulb brand, undo the screws near the hinge of the lens. If it's a Sylvania lamp please email us for a quote, if it's Philips, you can order them below.

Shipping and delivery times
Shipping to a mainland UK address is absolutely free. Occassionally we may ship your lamp directly from Italy so delivery can take up to a 1 week. If you would like your Lupolux shipped to an address outside of the UK please email us for a shipping quote before you place your order.

Warranty
All Lupolux lamps come with a one year warranty.

USA Customers
The Lupolux 800 will require a step down power converter from 220V to 110V to work in North America. They are quite cheap and easy to find in most electronics store. Alternatively you can choose the DayLED 650 or DayLED 1000 which are auto sensing units that can work anywhere within a 90-240V range.

A guide to exposure values when using Lupolux spotlights

The output of the Lupolux spotlights depends upon the size of your subject. Unlike a flash head, the Lupolux spotlights have a flood and spot control. This means at a given distance, the amount of light can vary enormously depending upon where you set that control. For example, a Lupolux 1200 on full spot could easily give ISO 200, 1,125th at f/4 at about 25m distance but it would still only light the same area as the same lamp on full flood from 3m. An example of some commercial shots taken with the Lupolux 1200 and 800 together, then mixed with a splash of flash can be seen here.

I can shoot headshots using the Lupolux 400 spotted in and work at ISO 200, 1/125th at f/4. If I want to shoot full length I can use the Lupolux 800 and work at ISO 400, 1/60th at f/4. If I want to reflect the light or use a gobo I tend to use the Lupolux 1200 and then I'm shooting at ISO 800, 1/60th at f/4. If I shoot with the Lupolux 1200 direct at full length then I can work at ISO 200, 1/60th at f/4 or 1/125th at f/2.8. For my hand held work lit with Lupolux lights, I usually end up on ISO 800 and I regularly shoot at f/2.8 because I love the look at that aperture.

I rarely light my subjects conventionally so I often use my Lupolux spotlights from beyond my subject pointing back towards the camera. I also select the power of the light needed by the amount of ambient light in the room rather than the exposure values that I want to shoot at. If I'm in a dark room and I want to keep the low key look I'll go for the Lupolux 400 every time. If I'm in a bigger bright space I'll use the 800 or LED 1000.

Here is another shoot using Lupolux spotlights.

I've seen a similar product on the market for about the same money. Why is Lupolux better?

Unlike other models, Lupolux Spotlights have a spot / flood mechanism whereas other brands have a fixed bulb. Lupolux spotlights also have a fresnel lens which gives that beautiful vignetting quality to the light. 

Don't HMI lamps require a separate ballast?

Normally they do but Lupolux spotlights have the ballast contained within the undercarriage of the light, making it far more convenient to carry and operate.

What are the main advantages and disadvantages over the Lupolux LED lights?

The HMI range has a smaller more spherical bulb which delivers a finer quality of beam pattern. This allows colour critical reproduction to be more easily achieved.

Pros (for the HMI light)
Lower cost
Slightly better for colour critical reproduction

Cons (for the HMI light)
No dimming control
Shorter bulb life expectancy
Bulb requires a short cooling off period before they can be turned back on after use, or to be transported

Identical features between the LED and HMI range
Daylight balanced continuous lighting
Barn doors to control the light

Robust lightweight construction
