News Imagery QWO800

Following feedback from clients, our stock of Clay Paky Alpha Spot QWO 800 now ship with a dichroic Half Minus Green filter installed in the static colour wheel, to enable precise colour correction to the MSR Platinum 35 lamp.

The Alpha Spot QWO 800 uses the latest MSR Platinum lamp – an 800W light source that produces an intense sparkling light, brighter even than older 1200W lamps. Additionally, the Alpha Spot QWO 800 is equipped with optical features that place this luminaire at the very top of its class, including a very wide zoom range from 7.6° to 55°, a uniform beam distribution at all zoom angles and a unique Stay-Sharp-Zoom feature that locks images in focus while zooming.
