Shipping
Shipping within the UK will be via an insured signed-for courier service. Occasionally we need to ship the lamps directly from Italy so delivery can take up to 7 days. The cost of shipping this item outside the UK is high and can fluctuate daily, so we therefore ask if you could please contact us first for a quote as there may be additional shipping charges if you place your order online. We will only ever charge you the actual shipping cost.

Shipping to destinations outside mainland UK
All lamps will be fully tested prior to despatch. If, for any reason you need to return a unit, return delivery costs will be at your own expense.

Warranty
All Lupo lamps come with a one year warranty.

Lupo 800 HMI fresnel

“An HMI lamp uses mercury vapour mixed with metal halides in a quartz-glass envelope, with two tungsten electrodes of medium arc separation.” – Wikipedia

The noticeable difference between a Lupo LED light and a Lupo HMI light is that it takes about three minutes for an HMI light to reach peak brightness and correct colour temperature, just like a data projector. During this warm up phase the colour of the light will vary slightly. Once lit, the light will continue to burn for as long as you need. Once switched off, the Lupo 800 will not ‘re-strike’ for about four or five minutes until the bulb is once again cool.

The lamp life is over 12,000 hours, which is very good but cannot match the reliability of LED units (50,000+ hrs). The Lupo 800 is extremely resilient, so you need not fear about the bulb blowing if switched on while still hot. Unlike other continuous lamps, the outer shell will get no hotter than an average household radiator and the light created will stay as cool as your subject.

Bulbs

All Lupo HMI lights come supplied with a bulb. To ensure the safe delivery of bulbs they will not be fitted inside the lamp but wrapped up separately. They are very easy to fit however by simply unscrewing the front casing and inserting the bulb.

The Fresnel Spot Daylight 800 (5600°K)

The Lupo 800 HMI has a power consumption of 150w a little more than Lupo 650 LED fresnel and 1000 LED fresnel but considerably less than traditional tungsten lights. The light output “roughly” equivalent to an 800w tungsten light fitted with full CTB gel, hence the 800 in it’s name.

The ‘800’ is the photographers subtle light of choice to be used where an Arri 300w might have been chosen. It has a super wide even light pattern in full flood mode and can zoom into a football sized spot of light at 3m distance. It is silent in operation and perfect for movie making too.

Lupo Power Lead Options

Each Lupo comes from the factory with a fixed mains lead 3 metres long fitted with a standard domestic three pole mains plug of your choice.

For a small extra charge you can opt for a separate 10m mains lead with an inline connector placed at 150mm from the lamp housing. The inline connectors are the excellent PowerCON TRUE1 by Neutrik. Other power connectors including industry standard blue top 16A are available upon request. Read what top commercial fashion photographer Tom Museeuw wrote about this option here.

PowerCON True 1 specification:

  • True mains connector with breaking capacity (CBC)
  • Lockable 16A single phase connector (USA: 20A)
  • Dust and water resistant according to IP65 in mated condition
  • Easy and reliable twist lock system
  • Extremely robust and reliable
  • Unique Neutrik cable retention
  • ENEC certified according to IEC 60320
  • UL recognised components

Power Lead Plugs – UK or EU

Lupo lights come with a choice of plug types. Choose between European 2 pin plus earth (plug type F) or UK 3 pin (plug type G).

Lupo HMI lights cannot be fitted with a plug suitable for the US as the units have a high (220 – 240V) fixed voltage requirement that exceeds US mains voltage output.

Refer to this chart for identification. http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/

Lupo Power Leads

In the video above Damien Lovegrove shows how the PowerCon True1 leads attach to the Lupo lighting units.

    I love my Lupolux 800. I used it at a recent portrait shoot as a light on a wall and it gave such a cool hair light i love it!

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    This lamp throws quite a punch thanks to the amazing Fresnel lens and 800 watts of pure clean daylight teamed with a great spot and flood knob. I use this as my sunlight source for back lighting food, it works brilliantly.
