Overview

The M8 is the latest and smallest lighting fixture in ARRI’s highly successful M-Series of HMI lampheads. Like the rest of the M-Series, the M8 is equipped with MAX Technology, a unique, patented reflector design that unifies the advantages of a Fresnel and a PAR fixture.

The combination of an open face design and the unrivalled efficiency of the MAX reflector makes the M8 exceptionally bright; in fact, the light output produced by its 800 W lamp comes close to the output from a 1,200 W Fresnel or PAR (with lens). The unit can be focused between 15° and 62° just by turning the focus knob, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. By eliminating the need for bulky, easily breakable spread lenses, the M8 will speed up workflows on set.

Key Features:

  • Lensless MAX Technology: easy to use
  • Light output comparable to 1,200 W fixture
  • Smallest lamphead with MAX reflector
  • Highly mobile for a wide range of uses
  • Focusable between 15° and 62°
  • Cross cooling allows safe operation even at 90° tilt
  • Uses existing 245 mm / 230 mm accessories & Chimera of 
  • ARRI TRUE BLUE D12
  • Compensation for Cable Loss (CCL)
  • Uses existing 575 / 1,200 / 1,800 W cables
  • Possibility to operate at 1,000 Hz
  • Protection class IP23
  • Tilt locks to hold heavy accessories stable
