This Kino Flo 4ft 4Bank kit is part of the recent evolution of lighting for motion pictures, television, video and still photography. Using cool-running 4ft T-12 fluorescent bulbs, the 4Bank fixture consumes 1/10 the power of an equivalent tungsten fixture, operates silently and flicker-free, and doesn't shift colour temperature when the light levels are changed. The 4Bank has four lamps, with individual lamp control. The lamps can also operate independently of the fixture - the bulbs can be built into sets or a single tube can be hand held as an eye-light. Also included in the kit are a high-output ballast, a mounting plate and an extension cable.
