Joker-Bug 1600
The 1600W is the newest unit of the Joker range. At 1600W, this Joker is comparable to over 6000W of Quartz fixture output and produces one full stop more than our Joker-Bug 800.


3 configurations

  • BUG-LITE : without optics, the bare-bulb output is optimal for use in lightbanks and lanterns, creating perfectly even distribution within such accessories.
  • JOKER-BUG (BUG-LITE + PAR BEAMER) : it features a specular reflector and a set of 4 PAR 64 lenses (Medium, Wide, Super Wide and Frosted Fresnel). These lenses provide various light patterns and a maximum output due to the reflector design (parabolic reflector) and finish.
  • BUG-LITE + ZOOM BEAMER : revolutionary, this lensless and focusable beamer gives 15 to 60 degrees of even light output. With its physical similarities to a faceted umbrella, the soft finish beautifully distributes light across your subject.

High Speed ballast

The ballast of the Joker-Bug 1600W is PFC and draws 7,4 Amp @230 V. It is dimmable, and has selectable frequency options for extreme High Speed shooting (300 Hz and 1000 Hz).

Ready to travel

With its rolling case, the Joker-Bug 1600W is a powerful fixture easy to bring on journey. It can be run on domestic electrical supply, so no need of generator.
