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.
ARRI is pleased to introduce a new generation of 1000 Hz High Speed Ballasts that accept the challenge of modern digital high-speed photography with ease.
With the new 1000 Hz High Speed Ballasts it is easy to achieve high quality flicker free images even at frame rates of 1000 fps and in many cases beyond even with a single HMI daylight source. This new technology supplies the lamp with a greatly raised 1000 Hz square wave current, allowing worriless shootings for commercials, sports, industrial applications, automotive component testing, ballistics or material testing.
ARRI 1000 Hz High Speed Ballasts offer the full range of features of the standard electronic ballasts plus the following:
- Up to 1200 Hz lamp operation for frame up to 3000 fps with multiple sources
- 75 Hz for flicker free images at standard frame rates
- 50 or 60 Hz for low noise operation in environments with low noise requirements (microphones)
- Blue standard housing with handle
