Originally introduced as a portable dimming Kino Flo for videographers, the Diva-Lite has blossomed into an everyman’s soft light for lighting news studios, feature films, television productions and professional still photo shoots.
The latest Diva-Lite 400 cool light boasts Kino Flo’s trademark modular fixture designs with full-range dimming, switching and remote control features.
The Universal model can be used anywhere in the world, from 90VAC to 265VAC. Diva-Lite 400 fixtures are versatile, controllable, portable fixtures designed for the rigors of location work. All Diva-Lites can go from nighttime to daytime interiors by switching True Match for daylight quality lamps. It’s like having two lighting set-ups in one kit.
“When we invented the Diva-Lite in the mid 1990’s, we didn’t anticipate that the light would be so popular outside the video community for which it was designed,” said Frieder Hochheim, founder and president of Kino Flo. “Diva-Lites are still strongest in the digital video and HD markets, but they continue to find favor with productions shot on film.”
One of the most unique Diva-Lite features is the Kino Flo designed True Match lamps that deliver the most accurate color reproduction for film or video capture of any fluorescent lamp in the market.
True Match lamps operate without generating much heat, run for more than 10,000 hours and are formulated to match the spectral sensitivity curves of film and digital imaging equipment. The compact 5500K and 2900K lamps are used in the Diva-Lites and match other True Match lamps, as well as other professional HMI and tungsten light sources, without color correction.
Moving Picture has found the Diva-Lite especially invaluable for crews that intend to travel abroad, especially to the Caribbean where small island-hopper airplanes are the preferred mode of transportation. Self-contained in suitcase sized lightweight cases, the Diva-Lite is the perfect soft light on the go.
