HydroPar® 5000w M1 Incandescent
HydroPar® lighting systems are state-of-the-art underwater lights specifically designed for feature and commercial film production. Modular components and integrated ground fault sensors (GFCI’s) which prevent electrical accidents, make these lighting systems safe, flexible and easy to set up. Compact and lightweight, the 5000W can be tailored to a variety of shooting situations. Barn doors and specially designed snoots are readily used by removing the lamp head retainer ring and inserting the accessory. Filters, gels and scrims may also be added. HydroPars mate to a 5/8″ spud for compatibility with standard grip and lighting equipment.
The HydroPar 5000W M1 Incandescent light is for underwater use only. It is available with interchangeable reflectors for spot, medium and flood configurations. Because the globe is enclosed in a tight fitting U/V coated quartz envelope, the beam pattern is adjusted by using interchangeable reflectors to collimate the light. We use reflectors, not par diffuser lenses to adjust the beam. When a par diffuser lens is placed underwater so that both surfaces (especially the inner shaped surface) are wet, the ability of the diffuser to spread light is significantly reduced. Underwater, the glass diffuser has an effective index of refraction of 1.108 and hence, not a lot of bending power. Depth rated to 100 ft., it weighs 22 lbs. on the surface and 6 lbs. underwater.
The HydroPar 5000W M1 conforms to UL 1573 and CE Standards and is certified to CAN/CSA Standard C22.2 NO. 166.
