Arri M8 HMI Rental from Manned Camera
To complement our selection of powerful soft lights with a hard source, we are delighted to be able to offer Arri M8 HMI rental!
The M8 is the latest and smallest lighting fixture in ARRI’s highly successful M-Series of HMI lampheads. Like the rest of the M-Series, the M8 is equipped with MAX Technology, a unique, patented reflector design that unifies the advantages of a Fresnel and a PAR fixture.
The combination of an open face design and the unrivalled efficiency of the MAX reflector makes the M8 exceptionally bright; in fact, the light output produced by its 800 W lamp comes close to the output from a 1,200 W Fresnel or PAR (with lens). The unit can be focused between 15° and 62° just by turning the focus knob, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. By eliminating the need for bulky, easily breakable spread lenses, the M8 will speed up workflows on set.
MAX Technology is a unique reflector design invented and patented by ARRI. Combining the best elements of PAR and Fresnel fixtures, units incorporating MAX Technology are open-face and thus very bright. They are focusable over a range of 35° or more, producing a clear, crisp shadow. The most recent addition to the MAX Family is the M8, which is the smallest lighting fixture in ARRI’s highly successful M-Series of HMI lampheads.
Our M8 comes complete with a Powergems 1000hz flicker free ballast, making the “little blinder”, as the M8 is affectionately known, perfect for high frame rate filming. The compact EB125P ballast offers a silent mode, 100hz, 300hz, and 1000hz supplies, all of which can be dimmed to 50% power.
Included with the kit are a set of barn doors, a spill ring, 7m head to ballast cable and an Arri/Manfrotto stand with rocky mountain leg.
A spare bulb is also included.
