Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 (5500K Fluorescent)

Available Today

The Kino Flo Diva-Lite 401 (5500ºK) is a continuous, flicker-free fluorescent light fixture that provides soft, daylight-balanced light. It’s ideally suited for television or film documentary shooting styles, but works well for variety of other shooting situations. The units provide a broad soft and diffuse light that’s great as a cosmetic light source. Their compact size and rugged lightweight nature make them well suited for travel. The bult-in electronic ballast provides flicker-free, color accurate output even when powered from a generator.

The Diva-Lite 401 puts out a broad soft wash of light with drop off similar to that of a bounce card / reflector. For this reason it is most effective in close proximity to the subject. The built-in barndoors and detachable louver provides control over the spread of the light. For an even softer light, you can use the 1-stop flozier diffuser. It’s fitted with four Kino Flo True Match 55W 5500ºK compact fluorescent lamps, providing ample light for a quick interview setup with a single light. Light level control is established through an onboard dimmer as well as by 2 and 4 lamp switching, with an attached in-line power cord.

Please Note: This light does not include a light stand. If you also need a light stand, we suggest renting either the 10.7 foot Giottos LC325 or 9 foot Manfrotto HD.

Warning: Due to the delicate nature of fluorescent tubes, we ship them in their own protective bulb case. If the unit is returned with the bulbs still installed in the fixture rather than in the protective bulb case, you will be charged for any broken tubes.
