HydroPar® 2000w M1 Incandescent
The HydroPar® 2000w M1 lighting system is specifically designed for feature and commercial film production. Modular components, underwater mateable connectors incorporating the “mate first/break last” grounding circuit and Shock-Block® ground fault sensors (GFCIs) which prevent electrical accidents, make these lighting systems safe, flexible and easy to set up. Compact and lightweight, the 2000w can be tailored to a variety of shooting conditions.The HydroPar 2000w SE mates to a 5/8” spud for compatibility with standard grip and lighting equipment.
The HydroPar 2000w M1 light is for underwater use only. It is available with interchangeable reflectors for spot, medium and flood configurations. Because the bulb is enclosed in a tight fitting glass envelope, the beam pattern is adjusted by using the interchangeable reflectors to collimate the light. We use reflectors, not par diffuser lenses, to adjust the beam in this light. When a par diffuser lens is placed underwater so that both surfaces (especially the inner shaped surface) have water contact, the ability of the diffuser to spread light is significantly reduced.
All reflectors are designed to accept a variety of accessories including gels, scrims and barn doors.
