The Joker² 800, designed around a UV-block bulb requested by K5600, was the first unit of this wattage introduced on the market.
More output in lightbanks
We designed this fixture to take full advantage of the large reflective material inside a lightbank: in this configuation, it provides 50% more output than a regular PAR 1200W, and a better spread of the light thanks to the bare-bulb design of the Bug-Lite.
2 beamers available
Like the Joker² 1600W, the Joker² 800W can be used with 2 different beamers :
The PAR beamer : it features specular reflector, and can be used with the classic set of 4 lenses supplied in all Joker-Bug kits (Medium, Wide, Super Wide and Frosted Fresnel).
The Zoom Beamer : consist of a segmented reflector which is focusable from 15 to 55 degrees.
Ballast High Speed & WIFI
The 800W comes with a dimmable ballast, which is able to work at 300 or 1000 Hz frequency for High Speed shootings.
Using “Lumenradio” protocol, ballast show antenna and DMX panel on his rear side to be controled by tablet/smartphone.
Coming in a hard case like the other units of the range, the 800W is easy to carry during your trips. The complete kit weighs only 22 kilos, and this handy light source, perfect for tiny spaces, can be run on the domestic electrical supply.

The Bug-A-Beam Adaptor is the part that makes the mating of a Source Four and our Bug-Lites 400W, 800W and 1600W not only possible but also quick and easy.
For the 800W and 1600W, the Bug-A-Beam is a complete system including the rear part of the 750 Source Four on which the glass reflector has been machined to let the bulb come through it.
Wether in 400W, 800W or 1600W, the Source 4 combined with the Bug-Lite gives a controllable high intensity beam, and makes of the complete system (usually called a Jo-Leko) an essential tool for many DPs.
