Digital Juice Releases Powerful Portable Fluorescent 3-Point Lighting Kit
Introducing the Aura 3-Point Lighting Kit with 1500W hotlight-equivalent power, light stands & deluxe carry bag
By PVC News Staff | January 18, 2013
Digital Juice® announced today that it is expanding its DJ Gear line of products with a new fluorescent 3-point lighting kit. The all-new Aura 3-Point Lighting Kit features three fluorescent lights that deliver the equivalent of 1500 Watts of hotlight power while still providing the energy efficiency and flicker-free lighting you need in a portable lighting solution. This versatile cool-running lighting kit works perfectly for everything from talking head interviews and product shots in confined spaces to larger scale productions in a studio environment.
Included in the Aura kit are three DJ-110HM fluorescent light fixtures, each with its own built-in two-way barn doors and attached gooseneck mounting assembly. Three lightweight light stands are also provided, as is an attractive compact deluxe carry bag so that you can easily transport and store your lights and stands when not in use.
Each Aura light fixture contains two 5400K daylight-balanced 55W biax fluorescent bulbs, each with a lamp life of approximately 6000 hours. Built-in two-way barn doors allow you to control the direction and amount of light coming from each Aura fixture.
A stylish compact deluxe carry bag is included with the Aura 3-point lighting kit. It includes a padded shoulder strap, built-in carry handles and three separate zippered compartments - one for each light and stand set.
“The light weight and compact size of both fixtures and stands means you can easily transport and use the Aura lights just about anywhere,” says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. “These lights are perfect for shooting situations such as in a cramped corporate office or an awkward on-location spot. Aura fixtures are even light enough to attach to a shelf or wall with a suction mount or articulating arm when necessary.”
With a maximum height of 6 feet and a maximum weight capacity of 12 pounds, the three provided aluminum light stands are both portable and durable enough for most shooting environments. Mounting an Aura light fixture is as easy as sliding the receiving end of the attached gooseneck arm onto the mounting stud on the top of the stand and tightening the knob. Each stand is provided with its own soft cloth carry bag to keep it clean and protect it from damage during transport and storage in the deluxe carry bag.
- Three Fixtures, Installed Bulbs and Three Light Stands in a Stylish Carry Bag - You have everything you need to light a wide variety of scenes in one lightweight compact 3-point lighting kit weighing just under 27 pounds and carried in a compact deluxe carry bag measuring 27" x 10" x 9".
- Two 5400K Daylight-Balanced 55W Biax Bulbs per light - 1500W of hotlight equivalent lighting power in 3 energy-efficient, cool-running, portable fixtures.
