HEDLER-DF25-2013-08-07-01HEDLER DF-25. 

This brand-new, continuous HMI daylight Fresnel Spotlight is unique: It incorporates the light source and the ballast in the same housing! This reduces weight and eliminates extra cables, providing the neatest HMI unit on the market.  The HEDLER DF25 does not need a fan for cooling, which makes it ideal for sound recordings. Using a special 250 W/SE Metal-Halogen lamp it produces a flicker-free light of approx. 5600 Kelvin colour temperature. 
Designed for professional use, the lamp has an average lifetime of approx. 6000 operating hours and the Electronic Ballast will last approx. 60,000 operating hours. The HEDLER DF-25 lamp produces a continuous light output that equates a 900 Watt standard Tungsten halogen lamp!
The DF-25 features a Fresnel lens giving great lighting flexibility: it can be set from 15 degree spot to 50 degree flood lighting position by simply turning a knob on the back of the housing.

The DF-25 produces a light beam that has a very low temperature in terms of heat, a very important feature for heat sensitive materials and humans.

The HEDLER DF-25 is compatible with a vast range of light shaping accessories used by other Hedler light units: reflectors, honeycombes, softboxes, striplites, reflex umbrellas and many other accessories.

The Hedler DF-25 is available as a single light unit or in Two & Three Head Kits.

Hedler DF-25 HMI Fresnel lamp with Safety glass, 250 W HMI bulb, U-Bracket with Quick-Lock Light Stand Attachment 5/8 inch, built-in Electronic Ballast.

The perfect light source for Video, Film, Broadcast and stills imaging!
