Kino Flo ParaZip 400 Louver-Honeycomb 90° (LVRZ490)
The ParaZip has distinct advantages over conventional quartz softlights.
Generally, fluorescents have a very broad, soft light output. The light tends to drop off rapidly which means the fixtures need to be positioned close to the subject they are lighting. The ParaZip has a computer aided designed (CAD) parabolic reflector that was designed to maximize the light output at about 16 feet (5 meters). This achieves two things: it doubles the light output of the lamps and concentrates the light where the lighting director needs it most. Compared to the Diva-Lite, which uses the same four 55Watt compact lamps and the same ballast, the ParaZip is twice as bright.
The 90° Louver concentrates the light and behaves much like a 24” barndoor.
The beam is slightly oval with a hot center. The light tapers off to a nice soft edge.
