The output of the Joker-Bug 200 can be compared to a 750/1000 Watt quartz fixture, but with a power draw of only 3 Amps. It has become a standard for small interiors, interviews, documentaries and car shots. The system will travel and operate in 110 and 240Volt environments as well as 28.8 (2x 14.4 camera batteries) and 30 Volt.

The PAR type design was preferred for its spot to flood ration (80 to 1), compactness (no focusing), ease of use and efficiency through diffusing material. The popular set of four lenses (3xPAR36 and a Frosted Fresnel) and barndoor will help to control the beam patterns from 5 degrees to 65 degrees. The "Bug-Lite" configuration is designed to fill evenly a Lantern or any size Lightbank, making it the perfect light for interviews. Its lightweight allows it to hang safely at the end of a boom arm.
