ARRI M18 1800 watt HMI

We’ve added this amazingly bright ARRI HMI to our lighting arsenal. The light as been compared to a ARRI 2.5K HMI Par and a ARRI 4K Fresnel by many. It’s the most powerful HMI that you can plug into a regular wall socket. The light is available for rentals in South Florida: http://www.facetmedia.com/lighting/
