Our first LED luminaire.
Videomaker Lighting product of the Year 2015
Uses all your traditional Redhead accessories
The PB80 uses remote phosphor to deliver superb quality of light for image capture uses. Tested by Alan Roberts for the Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) it scored 95 for the daylight disc and 84 for the tungsten disc.
We have adapted our PhotonBeam 800W Redhead to offer an 80W LED solution which gives similar light output to a 400W tungsten redhead. In fact if you were to add a gel or dichroic to your conventional redhead you would get similar output to our new daylight PB80.
The unit is supplied as standard with the daylight (5600K) disc and tungsten (3000K) discs are available as an accessory if required and these can be changed in a matter of seconds.
Powered from a universal mains PSU or via batteries at 11-17 VDC the PhotonBeam 80 can operate on standard V or Gold mount camera batteries.
The unit is supplied complete with head, 1 x daylight phosphor sheet, barndoors and universal PSU for 90 to 260V 50/60Hz
Optional accessories are the battery mounts - V or Gold mount, tungsten phosphor disc.
All the traditional Redhead accessories will fit such as soft boxes, snoots, scrims etc.
This product is also available as a 2, 3 or 4 head kit.
This product complements our Square One soft light and makes an ideal ENG kit with 1 x PB80 and 2 x SQ1 if you prefer your back light soft. However if you prefer a harder back light then go for 2 x PB80 and 1 x SQ1
Both can be battery or mains powered.

Two head kit
Here is a pretty good video that a reviewer did for the PB80 LED Redhead. We had no input until we saw the final version and were asked if we wanted it.
Only one thing to add it that it can be battery powered from a V or Gold Mount battery as the light needs 11 to 17 VDC.
