Since its introduction in 1999, the Joker-Bug 800 has become our #1 product, a testament to the universal appeal of this unique fixture and its myriad of advantages.

When working in practical locations like homes, offices, or commercial spaces, power consumption is a priority concern. The Joker-Zoom 800 keeps power usage low; a power draw of only 10.5 amps helps prevent circuit overload while producing as much output as a 4,000-watt quartz fixture.

With its lensless design, the Joker-Zoom 800 has a faceted open-face style reflector and is focusable 15-55 degrees. This powerful fixture is the best and most efficient performer in its class, and is known throughout the industry for its capacity to exhibit smooth and even light in any filming condition.
