Walimex Daylight 250s Due to the use of the Aurora/Bowens bayonet our Daylight 250s is compatible with many light controls from our product range. The sturdy metal reflector enables precision light guidance and offers additional protection. The recess on the reflector enables the installation of a transillumination or reflex umbrella directly on the lamp, the light is therefore bundled almost centrally by the umbrella. Due to the vast variety of usable light controls, our robust daylight lamp is perfectly suitable for both portrait and product photography. Moreover, the illuminant only generates little heat, which prevents the unpleasant development of heat, even in continuous operation.
Permanent light in use Permanent light sources are most suitable for photographers and videographers, because they enable a direct assessment of the projection and intensity of light. Apart from this, constant light can also be easily integrated into other light colours, like e.g. into artificial as well as natural light sources, since the photographer or videographer is able to flexibly adapt the ratio to the ambient light.
For beginners permanent light is highly appropriate, because the effect of continuous light is easier to judge. The artist is in this case able to work dynamically and playfully, and to fully concentrate on „setting the light“. Shots with the aperture wide opened like portraits, evocative still lifes and dynamic video sequences can be easily realized.
Colour fidelity and light control Daylights generate a bright, white light, similar to daylight. Due to a CRI-value of more than 83 and a colour temperature of approx. 5400 Kelvin, our Daylights ensures a very good colour reproduction. In order to be able to model the light as required for the situation, there is a number of light controls available for our Daylights, which will offer the desired effect, depending on the situation. Fluorescent lamps cannot be regulated with respect to their intensity, we have therefore developed a stage based solution for systems with several lamps, in which lamps can be switched on or off, just as required.
Illuminance Fluorescent lamps are far more efficient than conventional electric light bulbs, the power in Watt does not express much about the actual light efficiency. This is the reason why the power of our Daylights is given in lumen (lm), lux and as comparison value to conventional electric light bulbs.
E27 socket The spiral lamps of our Daylights are designed for being used with a conventional E27 socket. With our special E27 sockets you have also the possibility to mount the construction on a tripod and to attach various light controls.
