The fluorescent light bank is a fluorescent light head that is capable of holding multiple fluorescent light bulbs. Much like the traditional flash light head the fluorescent light head comes reto-fitted with fittings for an umbrella pole and softbox mounts, power cord straps and more of the features that are expected of professional grade lighting equipment.
Made sturdy, these fluorescent light banks are meant to be workhorses in the studio or on location; power efficient and easy to setup these units leave little more to desire. Fluorescent Continuous Lighting is a relatively new product being used for movie, video and still photo production today. It is widely considered the best overall lighting source for production. It delivers a smooth warm highly diffused light source which is almost always the most desirable type of light source for video and still photography production.
Fluorescent bulbs are extremely efficient requiring only 1/4th the electrical current of Tungsten to achieve an equivalent brightness. Their greater efficiency results in a bulb that runs completely cool. Heat generation from the bulb is negligible.
Professional fluorescent bulbs come in both Indoor and Outdoor Kelvin ratings making them in most cases the superior choice for Movie, Video, and Still Photography production work. We believe that Continuous Daylight Fluorescent Lighting makes Flash/Strobe lighting obsolete because it has the advantage of being a Continuous light source making set up much easier than with Flash and requires no trigger sync to the camera.
