A lot of the equipment we use is big and heavy, but the 100k (that’s 100,000 watts to you) Soft Sun takes the cake.
It’s 118″ x 33″ x 22″ (295 x 825 x 55 cm) and weighs in at a svelte 320 lbs (145 Kg). When burning at 100 percent (of course it has a dimmer, because although 100k may seem like the bee’s knees, it’s really too much. Really it is) it’s so bright that you can’t look directly at it.
It’s a gearwhore’s dream and a nightmare for people who actually have to lift the damn thing. Luckily for me, this time the poor put-upon riggers had to wrestle this beast onto the condor, and all I had to do was turn it on.
