OSRAM HMI Digital 1800W metal halide bulb - G38 base, single end, 6000K, UV stop quartz. Excellent hot-restart. Application: FILM, TV & VIDEO PRODUCTION
Weather using film or shooting with a digital camera in modes of 1000 Hz and higher, the OSRAM HMI DIGITAL line has a lamp for your production. While specially designed to accommodate evolving, high-speed film technology, HMI DIGITAL still provides every feature needed to light traditional film productions, as well as theater stages.
