broncolor Para 88 Hr Reflector
- Parabolic Shape
- 34" Front Diameter
- Silver Interior
- Heat Resistant up to 2000W Tungsten
With a heat-resistant construction and 34" diameter, the Para 88HR Reflector from Broncolor allows users to produce precise, efficient lighting using strobe or tungsten fixtures up to 2000W. The reflector's parabolic shape and silver interior yield very high light efficiency, wrapping the subject in brilliant light that emphasizes detail and due to the parabolic form of the reflector, light fall-off only occurs at the Para's extreme edge. This listing is for the reflector only. A focusing tube and a focusing device are required for use.
Known for its quality of light, the Para 88HR can be used as a powerful spot or a soft light with diffusers or honeycomb grids, for continuous lighting, or flash operation.
Focusing and Defocusing
The most important light design parameter of the ParaHD is the ability to position the lamp head within the reflector to focus or defocus the light source. When in focus, the light is strongly aligned and has a spot-like character with high contrast. To defocus a Para, the light source is moved towards the opening of the reflector producing a soft "cloud" of light with wrap-around qualities but with still enough edge to emphasize the structure of objects and details of skin and makeup.
Three-Dimensional with Gloss Effect
What differentiates the ParaHD from other large reflectors is that the light radiates frontally from the optical axis giving objects a sculptural, three-dimensional appearance.
