Lighting

  1. Kino Flo 4′ 4-Bank


    kino-rental

    The Kino Flo 4-foot 4-bank light fixture is a staple on location and in the studio. Each fixture runs cool on less than 250 watts, but provides enough light to compete with 1200w HMIs. Nothing beats Kino Flo for an easy-to-use, powerful, soft light.

    We include the kino flo fixture, twist-on mount with 3/8 pin, egg-crate, head cable and electronic ballasts.  We also include 5600K and 3200K lamps. If you like, we can provide Kino Flo 2900K lamps, UV/Blacklight lamps, or other commercial fluorescents, too. Mounting 4-foot 4-bank lights is most easily done with C-stands, not included.

    Need something more portable?  We like the Kino Flo Diva 401s, with nearly the same output in about half the space.

  2. Einstein E640 Flash Unit


    einstein-flash

    The Paul C Buff Einstein is probably the most popular studio flash in use today.  With 640 watt-seconds of power and a 9-stop range, this flash unit can do it all.  Maximum recycle time is 1.7 seconds. The digital display on the back makes it easy to read all your settings in an instant. The Einstein also includes a built-in slave sensor for optical firing with your other flashes.

    When used with modifiers, one or two of these is often all you need for large group shots.

    We send ours out with the standard reflector, 15′ cable, heavy-duty stand, and an AC cable.  A softbox and umbrellas are available.

  4. PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver


    pocketwizard-plus-iii

    The PocketWizard Plus III is a remote flash trigger system with 32 channels, four zones, and up to 1600 feet of range.  These wireless flash triggers can also trigger your camera remotely, and will work with any other PocketWizard system.

    The PocketWizard family of products will work with Canon, Nikon, and most other common camera and flash types, but you may need a specific cable. Be sure to confirm you’ll have the right cable for your particular camera and flash configuration. We have a lot of cables and adapters available for rent in our shop and can connect almost anything, if you bring your camera and flashes with you when you pick up. We want to help you go over your setup and be sure you have everything you need. Like most PocketWizard units, the Plus III doesn’t support TTL.

    Two AA batteries are required with each PocketWizard unit. We rent the PocketWizard units individually. Of course, you’ll need two or more to transmit and receive.

  6. DJ Lighting Effect – ADJ Tripleflex


    dj-lights

    The American DJ Tripleflex is a great feature light that combines four colors in a moving moonflower effect.  It’s programmable by DMX, or you can set it to sound activated mode for simple operation.  This light looks great at a DJ booth, and with a little fog it can take over the room.

    This is an LED light with low power draw and low heat.  It’s on the big side, so we include a standard pipe clamp for mounting.  We suggest mounting to truss or schedule 80 pipe.

    Rates start at $24 for one day.  Call or email for availability.
